We were a group of 8 traveling together. It was very easy to make the booking with the hotel for everyone. The hotel was very helpful with recommendations of where to eat and making the bookings for us. Only issue was when we wanted to get together, it was had to be in one of our rooms - not much...

Hello Dibon thank you for taking the time to review us. It is a little difficult to squeeze big groups into one room however we do have a lovely conference room on the ground floor that can be used on request :)

Dwayne on reception was very helpful and nothing was a problem. It would be good if there were a couple of plates and knife, fork and spoon sets in the room and if there was a microwave on each floor.

Our visit was too attend a friends funeral. The Motor Inn staff were very caring and helpful. The property is centrally located and the rooms were clean but a bit dark. The room we had was very quiet which is what we needed. We would recommend this location for visitors and would return to the Wine Country Motor Inn, if...

I have lived in Cessnock forever, and although from the outside the place doesn't look very appealing, it was hands down one of the best experiences of my life, food was sensational!!! We had two entrees, a main and dessert and could not fault anything!! We have already booked to come back next weekend for Mother's Day! I highly recommend...

Was put up here for work and loved the room. Nice and spacious, staff were great. Breakfast option is useful, but I would recommend going to cafe for a more suitable breakfast. I will most likely stay again when/if I am staying in Cessnock again.

On the up side, the staff...
