We needed somewhere to stay that was clean and comfortable for the family while we explored the Hunter Valley. The Vine Valley Inn ticked all the boxes. Its a wonderful old renovated building and Simon the host was most obliging and friendly. We will definitely be staying there again next Christmas.
Staff are very friendly and helpful. Swimming pool is nice and clean. The bad part is the mosquito. I killed almost 50 mosquito using my sweater in my one night stay. There is a pest spray under the sink but it is empty.
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.
