This place is very outdated and basic. The bed was very uncomfortable being 2 singles zipped together. Our feet hung over the edge. The bed head was too small for mattress width. The hot water was very slow to come through. Although we were told free wifi was included, we only had internet for about an hour before it was...

We come here regularly. The location is terrific, walking distance of The Hope estate for concerts and also the tempus two complex. There's a cafe on the grounds which does a lovely breakfast and the service is super friendly. The Leisure Inn isn't too modern but is comfortable and pretty clean. The 100 units are in groups of two (one...

I chose to stay here based on reasonable price, its location - close to gardens and a choice of restaurants. It is also a perfect location to Roche Estate and Hope Estate if you are attending a concert. Our room faced the lake and adjoined one other room. The lock to the room was very dodgy and the room did...

This hotel is in such an idyllic location, in the country, with a large lake and fantastic rural views. We even had wild ducks roosting close to our rooms with horses and cattle in the distance. Ideal for kids. We stayed three days and were very impressed with service, location, ambience and the overall layout and management of this hotel....

My last review seems to have disappeared...Interesting. I asked if a late checkout was possible [not something I'd normally do but my partner was at a conference and I had a few things to do] and was abruptly informed it was $20 for an extra hour. While 20 bucks is not a significant amount of money, it gets up my...

We have stayed at Leisure Inn Pokolbin many times as it is (or was) our favourite place to stay as we frequently visit the Hunter Valley. However, our most recent visit has somewhat changed our opinion. We got the impression we were frowned upon for only staying one night on a concert weekend which is normally a minimum stay of...

Enjoyed every aspect of staying here. Booked online after reading reviews. Rates very reasonable compared to similar accommodation options. Asked for and was given a room with lake views. The room was spotless, light and airy. The resort has beautiful bush surrounds, manicured lawns, with tranquil country vistas. Enjoyed the pool. Excellent location close to fantastic wineries and eateries. The...

We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment. It was lovely and clean. Very comfortable. We had a lovely view but not all apartments do. We were there for a concert and booked the bus to the hope estate.
