It is a really nice hotel,centrally located in Cessnock & close to all amenities like Cessnock Plaza, Big W etc.
The hotel staff was also very helpful & polite.
I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends/family visiting the Hunter.

Rooms are large & the one I stayed in was recently renovated, with a beautiful high pressed metal ceiling. There's a fan & heater but no TV, radio or bedside clock. A couple of clothes hooks act as a wardrobe. The hotel is at the quieter end of town so there's not too much noise, from the side facing rooms anyway. The pub was closed at midnight on Saturday night so there was no noise from below to keep me awake. The two shower rooms offered a good flow of hot water & relative privacy. There's a small kitchen nook in the common area with tea & coffee making, toaster, microwave, cups, plates, cutlery, etc. Great for a short stay which does not involve much sitting around the hotel.
The Aussie Rest was perfect for our quick little getaway to the Hunter. We spent the day trying wines, then booked in quickly & easily late afternoon. We had already booked a restaurant within walking distance which was at The Royal Oak Hotel for a degustation dinner. We needed the walk back to work off our meal. Warm clean and comfortable stay at The Aussie Rest Motel.

Arrived about 5pm, greeted by nice bar staff and management showed me to my room. Freshened up and went to the restaurant. I didn't have a booking, but was welcomed anyway. Really enjoyed the food, pleasant service and traditional surroundings.
Located in New South Wales’ beautiful Hunter Valley, our Cessnock hotels place you in the heart of Australians oldest wine region. The Hunter Valley has long been renowned for its excellent wines and breathtaking scenery the city of Cessnock gives you access to both from all sides.
Cessnock is an excellent base for a tour of the many wineries in the Hunter. Chauffeured tours are available, which even come with your own designated driver allowing you to indulge in the tastes of the wine country before being dropped back to your Cessnock hotel.
Settled in between Australia’s earliest Europeans settlements, our Cessnock accommodation is surrounded by reminders of the areas colonial past, including the Great North Road Convict Trail built at the start of the 19th Century. Constructed as an alternative route from Newcastle to Sydney, to avoid the long sailing trip by sea, many parts of the road are still intact today thanks to restoration by the Convict Trail Project.
And if you want a different view of the area, there are plenty of ways to see it from the air as well. Hunter Valley Aviation offers scenic charter flights of the region and also flight training. If you are after a more relaxed flight you can always take a hot air balloon ride instead.
