My partner and I stay at the Grand Mercure apartments every year for our anniversary and always have the best stay! This year we tried their brand new 3 bedroom house accommodation and it didn’t disappoint. Beautiful finishings, gas fire, barbecue, open plan design... It couldn’t have been nicer. Big thank you to Tim who made us feel so welcome and looked after. We’ll continue to come back.

Our family of 5 found the 2-bed apartments incredibly spacious. They were very clean and well presented with everything we required. Loved having 2 roomy ensuites which was perfect to separate the kids from the adults. The estate itself is lovely. Tim at check-in was super helpful and friendly. Would definitely visit again.

We just had a great week at The Vintage in a one bedroom apartment. Quite comfortable and roomy. Does lack a pantry and storage space though. Driveway was narrow with hedges both sides so if you have a large car good luck. It was tight with a small car.We probably had the tightest driveway. Kitchen with 2 burner stove (one didnt work) and a convection oven/microwave. Across the road is the Golf Club with a happy hour at 5pm and both fine dining and casual dining options. A lovely spot and in walking distance if you both like to drink.. They are currently building a tavern which will be very close to the apartments. (Located next to the reception) We ate at some great fine dining restaurants like Esca, The Deck and Amandas on the Edge. Great casual dining at Oishi Thai and Japanese. Next door Goldfish had great atmosphere and 2 for 1 pizza the night we visited. Free wine tastings at Gartlemans, Pigs Peake and McGuigan Wines. Other wineries we tried included Audrey Wilkinson, Bimbadgen, Brokenwood, Pedersen House and Tintilla. At Tintilla we had a wine tasting and a cheese and olive plate for the bargain price of $15.Bimbadgen does wood fired pizza and on Friday night there is live music and happy hour wines for only $3.50 a glass. I really enjoyed their wines. Called into Hunter Valley Distillery and IronBark Hill Craft Brewery. Hunter Valley Gardens is well worth a visit We could easily have stayed longer and explored some more wineries and restaurants. It would be a great place to live on this estate during retirement. Note to cleaners: Due to lack of storage we stored some items above the cupboard in the kitchen. To my surprise it didnt appear to have been cleaned for years and was quite filthy.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for a weekend in December. The apartment was clean, very comfortable and nicely furnished. Being able to utilise the amenities at The Vintage and Chateau Elan was a bonus - the kids loved they had two options of swimming pools. We grabbed takeaway breakfast and coffees from the cafe at The Vintage each morning. The location was a short drive to many of the major attractions of the Hunter Valley. Would highly recommend.

My partner and I arrived mid-morning at The Grand Mecure expecting to have to wait until check-in time for the room. The very warm and friendly receptionist, Sandy, took the time to search for an apartment that might already be available. She could not have been more helpful and eventually found us an apartment that was available. It was, for us, a no-fuss, pleasant and very easy check in process. Sandy was also the receptionist who checked us out on leaving. Again she was so efficient and such a pleasure to deal with. The apartment itself was beautiful, extremely comfortable and had a great look-out. A week or so after our stay, I called the Grand Mecure with an enquiry about one of the apartment features. Michelle took this call and said she would check things out and get back to us the following day. This would have involved going to the apartment in which we stayed – and moving a couple of things. Sure enough Michelle messaged the next day with the answer. We were so impressed with this place – especially due to the fact that Sandy and Michelle showed us such friendliness, courtesy and assistance. Highly recommended all round.

Had to cut our stay short due to Sydney Covid restrictions and penalised 50% of a 2nd night stay which we never used due to circumstances beyond our control Sydney being putting into a stay at home 14 day order. Booking was a minimum 2night stay. Save you $$$$ and steer well clear of this hotel chain as they are just out to rob you profit gauging. No compassion due to covid lockdown in refunding full.of unused time. Shame Accor very embarrassing.

Arriving at The vintage after driving for 3 hours we headed to the bar for a drink. Doesn't everyone. I ordered a Tyrrells Semillon & a cosmopolitan for my wife. I was a handed the wine & told the cocktail would be delivered to the table. Twenty minutes later no cosmo. I approached the bar, which was empty, & told "Oh I forget". At breakfast next morning bacon & egg was served on burnt & I mean burnt, toast as well as half the bacon rashes. Blackened and inedible. What Chef worth his salt sends burnt, blacked, food to his customers??? The only saving grace in the entire place was Kerrie who did a wonderful job in engaging the customers & continually apologizing for the slow service.

Well maintained and serviced apartment, lock up garage and easy access to the whole Hunter Valley. Wineries to visit and cheese manufacturers, Hunter Valley Gardens and also a zoo nearby, though the animals were mostly sleeping. easy drives to Maitland, though if you visit Maitland expect to think you are in cramped Sydney suburbs, Singleton was great and Cessnock was as well. Wollombi is a quaint Village, Don't travel back south through Mangrove Mountain road to Wisemans Ferry, this road is Dangerous and has not been maintained for about 45 years, Too many city drivers who drive too fast and on the wrong side of the road crossing double lines for no reason other than no skill.

Apartment 203. 1 bedroom. Bedroom faces the road, so it goes get road noise, but not too busy. Ground floor so you do have the sounds of people above you, particularly kids running & jumping around! The garage - only for a small car. It’s got this weird angle to it that makes it plan difficult. I certainly wouldn’t buy the unit that’s for sure. The air conditioning works well too. The only downside to the place is the management. I’d read reviews that the reception was hard to find - correct!!! After sending emails SPECIFICALLY asking where the reception is located I received only silence. For anyone wanting to know the reception is located in The Vintage Sales Centre. Parking is behind the sales centre, even that they don’t make easy with the stairs blocked off so you have to make your way around to the front - in fine weather not a problem, but in the pouring rain, a total pain!!! Worse of all, they didn’t give a s..t, & eye contact was non existent! So enjoy the apartments once you get there.

We enjoyed a lovely overnight stay at the Grand Vintage Apartments. Our two bedroom apartment was incredibly spacious with a large combined dining, kitchen and lounge room opening onto two large balconies. The bedrooms both had their own en-suite which was extremely handy. Our apartment had stairs up however there are ground floor apartments available which would suit anyone with a disability. The Mercure also has excellent facilities with outdoor swimming pool , 18 hole golf course, free parking, restaurant , fitness centre and wifi. Location is excellent with easy access to all the restaurants and wineries a short drive away. The only major issue we had was it’s incredibly hard to find anything especially the restaurant and reception as there is limited signs for directions.
