We stayed at Elfin Hill recently and as always it was an absolute delight! When my partner and I stay in the Hunter we always choose Elfin Hill. Breakfast is always lovely, Marie and her family are so friendly and welcoming and the accommodation is warm and inviting. She has a wonderful dog, chickens and a cat who love visitors...

Thoroughly enjoyed staying at Elfin Hill, the owners could not give enough advise on the surrounding areas, beautiful breakfast, very comfortable bed. The owner even saved us when we were ready to come home for the day, and there was no taxis available, they came and picked us up!

Enjoyed it so much we came back again. Marie and Mark where fantastic and when aircon didn't work made sure the room was heated when we got back from dinner. Wet weekend but with a great outlook the rain just added to the atmosphere. Breakfast was scrumptious. Couple of things in the room need a revamp but overall a great...

A recent trip the the Hunter Wine Country for a wedding. Selected Elfin Hill admittedly more for proximity to the wedding rather than previous reviews, but this was a real surprise. The accommodation is in very well constructed individual rooms with country views. Easy to find and very private. The large common area is also well positioned to take advantage...

Elfin Hill is in a fantastic spot with the elevation providing excellent views. We too love this place and never tire of the view, just recently having amazing sun sets. The kitchen is an excellent space and well used by many..the source of much fun and shared food.

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
