We stayed for 3 nights over Easter. 1st and 2nd of our stay the electricity kept shutting off in our room (115). This lead to quite uncomfortable temperature in the room due to the lack of aircon. Sockets didnt work and as a result our phones didn't charge which was a bit of an inconvenience, we were lucky we didn't...

Wine Country Motor Inn had friendly professional and helpful staff. The room was comfortable and had all you need for your night stay. The air con was a little noisy, but we were still able to get a good night sleep. The local supermarkets are just up the road and it's a short driving distance to the vineyards. Perfect location!

Great location convenient walking distance to Cessnock town centre and local pubs, clubs and shopping amenities. Short drive to all the hunter valley wineries. Room was great, clean and air conditioned, staff were friendly. Great stay at a reasonable price. Would definitely return

The location was very good , not very scenic but very convenient being right near the local supermarkets and across from the leagues club.

Lovely modern hotel. Really says it all. It is relatively new and so everything looks good and works well. Very clean rooms. Comfortable bed! Free wifi. We used the laundry and it was clean and free. Car parking is just in a big car park, with only about 6 under cover. But the area is well lit,no problems. Would stay...

I believe I stayed in the same room as Malb553 because our air conditioner made the loudest noise as soon as it was turned on. Not only that, it did not blow out any air! In a matter of minutes, it started blowing out warm air when it was on the coolest setting. We had the reason to believe that...

Thankyou for your feedback. I am sorry your stay with us was disappointing and apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Room was great, location was very central. Air conditioning in room was a bit ordinary. The weather was quite warm and the cooling wasn't the best. The hallways going to and from the room were also like an oven.

Friendly staff at check in and check out. Clean and presentable accommodation in a great location near the vineyards and great restaurants. Plenty of parking and great location for bus transport to and from concerts. Over priced accommodation though for what's on offer including too soft beds.

Thank Jenene C
Bronwyn L, Manager at Wine Country Motor Inn, responded to this review

Hello Jenene , concert season here is our prime time which means higher rates and generally a minimum two night stay. You will find that it is the same everywhere as a concert can hold up to 18000 people and the Hunter Valley only has approximately 2600 rooms available. This is why it can be difficult to get a place...
