Great base for the wine region..

For a couple of days in the Hunter Valley of New South Wales to do some wine tasting it would be hard to go past this as a base. Right in the middle of the Valley, handy to many cellar doors, we had a 1 bedroom apartment with kitchen and separate living room for just over $150 per night. We were very satisfied with the standards maintained by this establishment. While there were some first signs of a bit of fair wear and tear, cleaning was of a very high standard. A quick look into the corner behind the bathroom door usually tells the story about cleaning standards and I was pleasantly surprised in this case. The apartments are actually free standing duplex buildings scattered around the expansive grounds.. For larger families or groups, the two apartments in our building had an adjoining door which could have been opened to make a super size apartment. Free WiFi is provided, but is limited to 250 Mb per day. But it was very stable and at a respectable download speed just under 10Mbs... No room service meals are available and the onsite restaurant only seems to provide for breakfast and lunch on most days. This should be no problem as there are more than ample dining choices around the local area. Finding somewhere to eat will be the least of your worries in the Hunter. Overall, I would rate this accommodation as a 4 star place other than for the stingy WiFi limits and limited onsite dining options. So maybe a three and three quarter score from me... Would I stay here again?? Absolutely, it will be my first choice on my next visit..

Can't be 4 star

The pictures on the web are not a true reflection of the resort. This is a tired resort. Our bathroom had a variety of moulds growing. The carpets were stained and information in the wet coffee soaked welcome book were incorrect, such as times for the restaurant. Check in was delayed with no apologies, just your room is not available yet and we had a wedding to go too. The walls were not very sound proof and could hear everything the neighbour's said and did.

Wedding Escape

We recently stayed here for two nights whilst in Pokolbin for a wedding. The room and bathroom were a good size and the bathtub was quite big! The location was amazing, and lovely views from the main building cafe. The bed was large and the mattresses quite comfortable, the only downside being that it was two single mattresses pushed together to make a Queen. This made the middle of the bed quite solid. The front desk and cafe staff were really friendly and overall we had a fantastic experience.

Handy location

We went up to the Hunter for the Snow in the Gardens and the Leisure Inn was a perfect location for activities and food etc. Very pretty being next to the lake as well.

Restful little break

Great place to relax and enjoy the country side. Within easy walking distance to many wineries & the Hunter Gardens. Staff very friendly & helpful, rooms & grounds very clean, only thing may be missing is a restaurant menu either in the room or on the restaurant door.

Penny pinching

They charged $2 per pool towel plus a $20 deposit. Should have just taken the room towels. They also keep you room bond for 7 working days. Pretty ordinary for a 4* hotel. Pool was good and location was great. Room was clean. I think there are better places to stay in the Hunter.

Location location

We have stayed here several times and keep coming back for the value and location. Comfortable 10 minute Walking distance to hunter valley gardens (great for the Christmas light spectacular), Tempest II complex with its wine, Japanese restaraunt, cheese shop and more. 10 minute drive from many wineries. Breakfast menu is simple but ok but the service is very very slow each time we've stayed, admittedly it has been weekends. Staff are polite and obliging but I think they just need more hands on deck. Rooms are basic but clean and fine for overnight. It is on a major road so ther is noise until about 10pm, uht after that it's fine. Good facilities with a pool and tennis court.

Unfortunate experience

Re: Hotel confirmation for room held under Robin Lau : C5S4N5 and Beng Khee Oh : RWXCEZ When we arrived, unfortunately the hotel unable to find our booking even we have fully paid for two units from 2nd to 4th Jan. 2014. Finally, we have to share one units and one room without air-con. on 2nd Jan 2014. What a downgrade? Robin Lau

Perfect Location

The accommodation was centrally located to wineries and walking distance to several eateries. For the price we payed I felt it to be great value and all we needed. The pool was clean as was the BBQ cooking facilities. Only downfall was that the room we had was not cleaned as well as I would have liked. Overall would recommend and stay again.
