Great room, lots of space with a couch separate from the bed. Large modern tv with links to You Tube, Netflix and more. Super helpful and friendly cleaning staff (gave me lots of extra sugar and tea bags). Was on the street but still very quiet. Being across the carpark from the Leagues Club was also handy.

Booked an executive queen room and had a horrible experience. Got back late after a wedding cold and tired hoping for a good nights rest. However was greeted by a live cockroach as soon as we opened the door, as well as another dead one wrapped inside the hotel towel. Was freezing tonight but no heating was available? Would have thought heatings pretty basic esp for an exective level room. For survival we decided to take a bath to warm up but no bath plug was available to actually use the bath. Rang reception and was told to go downstairs to the front desk (this was at 12am). A new bath plug was given so we spent time cleaning and setting up the bath only to find that the new bath plug was the wrong size and the water kept draining out. Not to mention that the only toiletry provided is a 3 in one bath gel, shampoo and conditioner. We gave up. Told the reception about our experience the morning after who agreed to ask his Manager to ring us back about our experience. Have not heard from them.

Lovely clean, spacious room. The bed was super comfortable and warm. Very helpful staff. This accommodation is in a really handy location in Cessnock - right next to the leagues club, where we had a very nice dinner, and close to pubs and shops. I can thoroughly recommend this motor inn.

Should have stayed in Newcastle. Where was the receptionist, you ask? Who knows, I say. Certainly not at reception when we arrived, left and the times in between. Look, the room was clean and had a plug to charge your phone somewhere in the vicinity of the bed. But that's about the highlight, I've stayed in better airport and freeway motels, hopefully you get the picture. The view was of the car park, not something that can really be helped. But the fact the hotel is dated and needs a substantial renovation, yet is still charging a reasonable room rate, sans breakfast is within their control. Would not recommend, stay elsewhere.

Hello Izzy, Thankyou for your feedback. We are a small independent Motel and I apologise if there was not a staff member to greet you immediately on arrival. Perhaps they were busy attending conferencing or completing the breakfast set up or receiving a delivery? They could have been upstairs checking on guests or stocking linen and assisting housekeeping? This is why there is a phone on the counter with a notice saying "if unattended please pick up the phone". The staff here work exceptionally hard and cover many areas in order to be productive and keep the Motel of high standard. Our reception is not manned 24 hours. We agree that a view of a carpark area and small park is not the ideal view however we are a CBD property and not located out amongst the Vineyards. The rooms are a little dated however are comfortable and of a high standard and in the past year we have replaced our air conditioners, televisions, carpets, lock system and our King rooms now have new beds! We are now in the planning stage to start some room renovations and we are excited about it. I hope you have an opportunity to revisit us.

Wine Country Motor Inn is a fantastic place to stay in the centre of Cessnock. It is centrally located, spotlessly clean, reasonably priced, comfortable and quiet. The rooms are also a good size. We had a wonderful overnight stay and thoroughly recommend it.

We stayed in the King Executive room which was spacious, clean and comfortable. Despite its central location it was fairly quiet on a Saturday night and we had an excellent nights' sleep on the comfortable bed. The receptionist was friendly and very helpful. Good value for $200/ night.
