This motor in was well priced and conveniently located near shops and cafes. Ten minutes drive to most of the local wineries. Lovely staff (Dwayne) very helpful, clean and well presented rooms. Hairdryer and great aircon.

Stayed here for a friends wedding close by and it was a perfect choice. As described by other reviewers. Only 10 mins from the wedding venue, walking distance to Cessnock cafes and shops, which was very handy. Room was clean and had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend this place.

Love this motel! Stayed there for a concert with a friend in November 2015 and returned this time for 2 nights with the family for the Hunter Valley Garden Christmas Lights. So clean, beds comfortable, price is so reasonable and the room layout for families is great. We were in a Queen Room (executive??) And it had a Queen Bed...

I recently stayed at the Wine Country Drive Motor Inn to attend a wedding in the vineyards. Firstly, I was impressed with how easy it was between searching and making a booking with the TripAdvisor App. The location is great, easy to find and in the middle of town. It shares a car park with the local leagues club which...

Attended a wedding in the Hunter Valley and this hotel was recommended, we had a great stay, it was clean quiet and well equipped, the staff were efficient and friendly. The club next door was great for lunch after our journey. Will definitely visit again

Just one night while visiting for business. A very warm welcome, despite me being a bit late on checkin. The room was on the top floor on the side away from the road, quiet. Bed is clean and comfortable with room average size. The bathroom is compact and no bath.

We stayed 2 nights here - in town for concert in Hunter Valley. Best thing is location - right in heart of town. It does sit on busy road with a busy car park so you won't be here for the views. All staff we met were very helpful - printed off my bus pass to the winery that I...

Bed was really comfy! The room was a reasonable size with a lounge area and was very clean and tidy as was the rest of the hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Good location central to shops and only 10 mins from Pokolbin and some great wineries.

The Wine Inn has recently been upgraded and now has rooms and facilities equal to a chain hotel. Its located in Cessnock which is a short drive to the wineries and concert venues. It does not have a restaurant but there are many local eateries close by. There is transport to the wineries and venues available for groups

Not value for money! The website photos of the rooms are deceiving. The rooms are extremely small, the bathrooms are badly designed and not suitable for two people to use at one time. My understanding from the booking was that I had booked a Queen executive the same as what other guests in my party had booked. It seems their...

Hello M Gibson thank you for your review, I am sorry the rooms did not reach your expectations. Being a long weekend it was of course premium rates and may seem a little higher than usual. You had in fact booked an Executive King room which is a completely different set up to the Executive Queen. The bathrooms are different...
