Excellent maintenance of the units; Calm place; owners of the place very friendly and helpful ( much better than a travel agency). We really enjoyed our relaxing experience there, thanks to owners advice on activities. One day ( 2 nights is enough to see the area). We got free wifi, without requesting it.

Every time we head up to the Hunter Valley we stay at the Cessnock Motel. The service and attention that is provided by Celeste is just amazing. We always feel welcome and are greeted as returning friends. This is the case from the very first stay at Cessnock Motel. Clean and fresh, close to the heart of Wine Country and...

We were made to feel extremely welcome by Celeste, who booked us in for a wine tour and made excellent recommendations for great breakfast and dinner places. Room itself was spacious and immaculately clean, very comfortable bed. And I want one of those shower heads for back home! Excellent pressure. Thank you Celeste!

We stayed there for 2 nights and already at the check in we felt very welcomed. The owners are very friendly and helpful and go the extra mile in order for you to really enjoy your stay. Our car battery died while at the motel and the owner immediately came to help us recharge it and even checked the motor,...

Wonderful find for stays in the Hunter! Celeste is so warm and welcoming, offering great suggestions on places to eat and sights to see. We arrived the morning prior to going for a very early hot air balloon trip, we were upgraded to a front room. Celeste made us feel very comfortable returning to the hotel to freshen up and...

Would highly recommend. The family room had a separate bedroom with a queen size bed and 2 singles in main room for the kids. The room was exceptionally clean. Proprietors were very helpful and attentive. The heated pool was beautiful. Great breakfast by the pool too. Excellent location.

As someone who often travels in regional Australia for work, I've learned not to expect too much from motels in general. Cessnock Motel doesn't just surprise you with their cleanliness, amenities and incredibly slick and cheery service; they completely topple every preconception of how a motel should be. Interiors are motel-sized, but clean, modern and warmly lit like a four-star...

We are a family of four travelling in Australia for 2,5 weeks. We loved this place that we found by accident. A nice room and charming owners. Ehdottomasti parhaiden yöpymispaikkojemme joukossa koko matkalla

Found the Cessnock Motel via the tourist info. The welcome was lovely and warm. The rooms were spotless and comfortable. We ordered breakfast which was served hot and freshly cooked by the poolside. Sadly the rest of Cessnock was closed so we dined on fast food chicken followed by wine purchased from the McGuigan Winery earlier in the day. Great...

Cessnock Motel is a great place to stay when visiting the hunter valley. It is a short drive from all the vineyards but also a short walk to some bars, restaurants and lots of fast food places. The manager, Celeste, and her husband are lovely people. Celeste will book any activities, including a winery tour, and often offers a discount....
