Was looking for a family retreat in Hunter Valley first time and decided to stay at Elfin Hill. Called directly Marie (the host) who was very accommodating and offered a spacious cosy room for all our family (of four) to enjoy. Upon arrival she generously shared her local insights on various places for visit in the Valley. Every day was...

We chose Elfin Hill as we wanted a cross between a B and B and a hotel. This was perfect. It was so private, with a beautiful outlook of trees and gardens, and all you heard was the birds. The bed was so comfy we want to get one for ourselves at home. The breakfast was delicious - with home...

A high-end BnB which can be compared to some of the nicer hotels. A great place to stay for that country experience. Marie and Mark will make you feel very welcome. The breakfast is amazing and you can choose to eat this on your deck or by the pool. A great place to get away and take some time out.

The location of Elfin Hill right amongst the vineyards is excellent. The grounds of the property itself are large, and bordered by vineyards, so are a lovely place to relax. We were easily able to walk to several vineyards, although we saw no other walkers, perhaps due to the lack of pavements. The owner was very welcoming, and always on...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Beautiful elevated property in the heart of the grape growing district of Pokolbin with fabulous views of the surrounding vineyards and the Brokenback mountain range.Quietly tucked away yet so close to all the very best that the wine region has to offer including only minutes to 4 world class golf courses.Recently refurbished and upgraded hotel style rooms are very comfortable with everything you need to make your stay easy and enjoyable with large glass french doors opening out onto your private veranda and perfectly framing the stunning vista. The separate loft/villa cottage provides a luxurious space with full amenities.The views from here are also fantastic with doors that open out onto the garden and courtyard area.Our small table grape vineyard and our neighbours extra large Chardonnay & Shiraz vineyard and farm animals complete the picture. The salt water swimming pool along side the BBQ area and the guest pavilion provides a refreshing end to a day out amongst the many cellar doors, restaurants, cafes, gardens etc during the summer months. The pavilion is the perfect place to relax and watch the sun go down. ... more   less
