Relaxing , friendly stay

Posted Apr 9, 2017
A very clean and relaxing stay, good staff very friendly and value for money. Downside, breakfast and welcome drinks? Breakfast is a few eggs,muffins and bread in the bar fridge. Which you got to make yourself and the welcome drinks is a bottle of wine in your cupboard. Overall not bad but if you advertise breakfast included you would expect it made for you?

Nice View, great location.

Posted Feb 14, 2017 on Wotif
Pros: Double shower in main bathroom, aircon upstairs, spacious master bedroom
Cons: Need butter knives, cheese knives and red wine glasses. Also aircon in the second bedroom would have been nice, but we were there during extreme heat.
Location: Great restaurant nearby and Binorie Dairy. Close to concert transport (next door). Plenty of cellar doors close by on Hermitage Road.
Great location, beautiful view. Nice staff. Great restaurants and cellar doors nearby. Close to Binnorie Dairy and Brewery.

Peaceful Retreat

Posted Oct 23, 2016
Pros: Location, peaceful setting with fabulous views
Cons: Nothing!
Location: The resort is peaceful, a retreat from city life, & central to the facilities of Cessnock. Vineyard estate cellar doors abound, + great restaurants
Berenbell was outstanding. Local restaurant & guides to the wine valley were given to us when we were welcomed on arrival. Room facilities were above average, private, exceptionally clean & had the best vineyard views imaginable. The owners were fabulous, providing an excellent breakfast selection (in fridge) & were available to assist during our stay should the need arise. The complimentary half litre bottle of shiraz & chardonnay was much appreciated.

Great place. Great location.

A relaxing hassle free weekend. Very peaceful, but still close enough to take a walk in the morning and buy a cup of coffee.

Lovely Relaxing Stay

Posted Jul 6, 2016
Pros: Quiet, stand-alone rooms, fireplace, bath, complimentary wine, friendly owners, and fully-catered for breakfast.
Location: Easy walk to the Hunter Resort and Andrew Thomas? winery. Easy drive to all Hunter locations. On a quiet road, so at night it is quiet and relaxing.
I would not hesitate recommending this hotel for your stay in the Hunter Valley. The owners are lovely and friendly and have catered for all your needs from a complimentary delicious breakfast with eggs, bread, cereal, juice, complimentary wine in the rooms, and home baked muffins. I loved the claw bath, the fireplace, the comfortable bed and the privacy of the rooms overooking the Broke Mountain. It was lovely sitting on the secluded verandah in the mornings and at nights watching the bird life and the kangaroos. All up, this hotel is great value for money and provides a perfect relaxing holiday on a quiet lane but within easy access to all the restaurants and vineyards that the Hunter has to offer.

Nice and relaxing

Posted Dec 29, 2015 on Lastminute
Have stayed in the area before. Location of hotel was perfect. Breakfast that was supplied was very nice. Great homemade muffins. Room was a bit out dated and was in need of maintenance. Main bathroom door would not shut, most door handles were worn out and loose, Window were dirty and screens were full of bugs.
