The beautiful Neath Hotel is located on Cessnock Road between Cessnock and Kurri Kurri in the Hunter Valley, New South Wales, Australia. This family-friendly, country hotel is a huge 3 storey heritage building with a rich history dating all the way back to 1913. In its early days, the Neath Hotel was popular with miners, with mining being a rapidly developing industry in the Hunter Valley at the time, it was the perfect place to go after a hard days work - and still is! The Neath Hotel houses numerous historical artefacts from visitors along the way, including Harry Littlefair's mining lamp and fuel container. Harry Littlefair was a miner who grew up in the Hunter Valley, he often enjoyed a cold beer at the Neath Hotel and left his lamp and fuel container at the hotel for safe keeping when he went off to fight in the war. Harry passed away in battle and his lamp still resides at the Neath Hotel today. Today, the Neath Hotel is a safe family-friendly environment with restaurant, bar, TAB, KENO, Fox Sports, accommodation, beer garden, children's playground, children's playroom and free parking.

We stopped in for some drinks with family and the owner was so welcoming. He stopped for a few chats with us and even brought the kids out a wafer stick dipped in chocolate, as well as helping my husband out to our table with our drinks. So impressed with the amazing service!!!

Lets start with the Pesto focaccia bread it was terrific ! Sadly it went down hill from there... my wife ordered the Arancini balls as her meal...the flavor was good but the crust was soft - every other place they serve Arancini the crusty outside is one of the features of the dish. I then ordered the Seafood Risotto - I love a good Risotto ! The texture was right and that's about it - It was the most expensive meal on the extensive specials board and was bordering on bland. The half blue swimmer crab was a disaster- the claws had watery crumbly flesh the flesh in the body was completely raw.... When I told the waiter, he apologized but didn't even bother to look at it as he took it away. I was told it would include scallops - buggered if I could find any ! We then ordered a Tiramisu which can only be described as mushy. At least the Staff was friendly ! Very very disappointed.

this hotel is closed and starting to become run down and derelict Very disappointing Comparing it to the hotel it once was shows that the new owners just don't care about retaining its historical architecture.

Hosts were lovely! Room was neat and clean. Entire hotel and hallways smelled great and not musty like other older accommodation. Shared bathroom can get quite wet. No fridge or tv in the rooms. It was a shame the restaurant was closed when we stayed. They did let us watch the football on the restaurant tv. Kids were intrigued by the soldier’s lamp!!

This was our first visit and what an interesting place. We sat inside for lunch and it was so quaint with all the antiques etc. Wonderful ambiance. The staff.. What can I say? The best I have experienced. The waiter rattled off a dozen daily specials flawlessly, it was amazing. Our bar waiter had such a passion for the cocktails he was making for us and the wonderful Italian guy who ran the restaurant was a wonderful host. The meals were also delish. Will definitely be back. Recommend as a great place for lunch on the way to or from the wineries.

We had heard that the Neath Hotel had changed recently. So with a group of close friends we went to try. The hotel has definitely changed in to a very classy Hotel with a restaurant. Denise and Carlo have transformed the once old country pub to a classy Italian restaurant. The food is Italian and they have a few Italian wines as well as some local Hunter valley wines to complement your food. The food is not just pub grub, it’s restaurant food so you will need at least two courses. We had one of the specials from the board, Chilli Mussels in tomatoes and it took us back to one of our trips to continental Europe. Next time you go, take time out to speak with Denise and her to look after you and I am sure she will.

Enjoyed a rustic Italian meal with family . Service was hit and miss - Carlos was very informative and a great host but the young wait staff seemed rushed and not happy to be there -stomping about with very sour faces on all evening and arguing with the owner !!! which brought the entire experience down . Food was a little hit and miss - salad we ordered had store bought dressing ? Mains were tasty and filling and desserts were a highlight - Wine list had some great Italian options but they had very limited Hunter Valley wines which is a shame when they border the wine region !

For the most satisfying Sunday Lunch, you cant go past Carlo's "Cellini's Italian Restaurant" in the old Grand Neath Hotel. I haven't seen such a vast menu selection since i was last in Rome. When you are waiting for your extravagant order, enjoy from the large selection of drinks including local wines, beers and cocktails.. The selection of food on the menu will "blow your mind" do yourself a favour and delve into the many authentic selections....We recommend Carlo's "Cellini's Italian Restaurant".... buon appetito.

Cellini's Italian Restaurant in The Grand Neath Hotel is the place to go if you want a beautiful meal. The new owner Carlo is friendly (as are all his staff) and is extremely helpful when you order from the Italian menu, letting you know what each meal consists off. The hotel also has a Bistro section for your Australian meals which look just as good, from what we have seen. We drive 2 1/2 hours to go to Cellini's and it is well worth the visit.

Dined here with friends, hard to make a choice with so many delicious options. Mains chosen were tortellini, veal scallopini and seafood rissoto. 😁✔ Staff are friendly and efficient, dining room quaint. Highly recommended.
