Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed for a couple of nights over Christmas and our first thought was disappointment, having booked a groupon package, the king deluxe room with sofa, didn’t exist. Breakfast was little packets of cereal, glass of juice (?) and a couple of slices of break given the day prior. The pool is really small and as the motel was at, or near capacity we opted to avoid it and the numerous kids crowding it. The room was ok. Parking is an issue ( very tight for our allocated room) and as we had a lot of our personal recreation equipment in the back of our colarado (covered by the tonnue and sealed, we were very concerned where the allocated parking was. The greatest attribute of the hotel is the hosts, who had only owned the hotel for a month or so. They were keen to help where the could and we enjoyed their hospitality.

My partner and I stayed overnight on 28 December 2019. The new owner Preeti is wonderful, very informative and accommodating. I read previous reviews about the noise from the pub however the pub is under new management and they are mindful of the noise. I had a great sleep, no noise and the room was very clean and nicely decorated. I would definately stay there again and highly recommend it!

Stayed overnight for hot air ballooning. Our room was sparkling clean, everything we needed. The hosts were amazing. We got an upgrade and they were super helpful. Deal with the Australia hotel next sort with meals. The meals were the best I’ve had. Great short stay. If you’re staying in Cessnock it’s the be value and super easy. We loved it.

It was just an overnight stay for my father and I to attend a family wedding the next day. At 88 my father is unsteady on his feet so he benefited from being in Room 1 which is equipped with rails, no shower hob, etc in the bathroom. The rooms are dated with eclectic furniture, so not to everyone's tastes if you expect something modern. The host is very friendly, the rooms are very clean and everything appears to be well-maintained. One of the nicest motel stays I've had in a while. For dinner we ate next door at the Australia Hotel. Both meals were great.

We stayed here after we received notice from Vine Valley Inn that they could no longer accommodate us due to overbooking. They arranged the stay for us at Aussie Rest and I was pleasantly surprised by this motel. The room was nice and clean, with enough space and everything you need for a short stay. The bed was very comfortable and there was extra blankets that came in handy. I must compliment the owner/manager of this establishment, we had such a friendly and genuine welcome and same when checking out. I love seeing someone managing a place and really just being a friendly and helpful person.

I recently spent a couple of nights in Cessnock touring the wineries, while i was there I stayed at the Aussie Rest Motel is a comfortable family run place to stay, the owners where very friendly and helpful, the large rooms clean and comfortable with great facilities, they also had a large car parking area. the Motel was close to a Hotel where you could go for a meal and a drink and not far from cafes and the shopping centre, it is a fabulouis place to base yourself when exploring the region.

Stayed two nights in December. Considering the motel was full, the only ones we heard were the people next door (pretty sure the whole complex heard them). The room we were in was larger than expected; however; the bathroom was quite small. Great location, right next door to a pub, food there was fantastic, great size meals!! Only minimal noise heard from the pub; our room was next to it. Not enough to keep one awake. Had breakfast one morning here, take it our leave it. The room and bathroom was very clean. Would stay here again.

Motel is fine, parking good, location good, however we made the mistake of staying here one night through the week. Drunken Mine Workers were very noisy in their rooms, then got up very early to leave (4am) and wanted to talk and yell out to each other prior to leaving in their revving 4WD utes. Not a place to go if you want a rest and peaceful night. RECOMMEND that if you see any trade utes, etc parked at this Motel, keep driving until you find one without these inconsiderate individuals!

Worked well for us as an overnight stay whilst visiting various wineries in The Hunter Valley. Room Ok, if a bit basic, but a good nights sleep and car right outside. Went to the Australia Hotel in the evening for a meal - all good.
