The Sebel Kirkton Park Hunter Valley4.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The hotel has been refurbished in Greg Natale's plush and striking signature style. It's nicely designed and the views are lovely. The buffet breakfast had lots of yummy options and gorgeous smelling flowers on the tables. Downsides: they seem to have a bit of an aversion to air conditioning, the bathrooms could be smartened up a bit, and a mini bar would be nice. Overall a lovely stay for a romantic getaway.
Good standard of accommodation if bathroom a little small. Excellent and comfortable beds in particular. Very high levels of organisation, competence and service from staff. Excellent food. Good and well managed facilities for the wedding we attended. Very scenic aspects from some of the wings with good verandah access to all rooms. Single level complex and therefore no elevators. Lovely indoor pool complex in particular. Handy to all vineyards with well connected transport links.
Not our first stay, but first since a recent, comprehensive renovation. This hotel is easily in the top three places available in the Hunter, and is in a very good position from which your winery visit can commence. The main restaurant is more than adequate, without being too flashy, with a good range of options, and, of course, wines (albeit, they should stick to just locals, as much as possible). The location is not exactly in the main Hunter wine area, but easily close enough to it (Broke Road is only about a 10 minutes drive), and also not far to my favourite, high-cuisine restaurants - Muse or Muse Kitchen, Esca (at Bimbadgen) and Robert Molines. Very good value for your dollar, and near some of the best Semillon and Shiraz in Australia. If you are quick, there is still a drop or two of the fabulous 2014 Vintage, rated, by some, as the best Vintage ever (try Calais).
Room only $ 745.00 for 2 nights without breakfast and the below listed items. 2 star service from apparently poorly trained staff, 2 star meals at 5 star prices, squeaky floor boars, 3 coffee capsules for 2 people, no toilet brush, noisy fridge, mini bar menu, but no mini bar, 1 soap bar for 2 people, 60 m luggage haul from car park to room. All this and some more, which I'm too disappointed to mention. HOWEVER, the GARDENS are well kept and cared for.
From the minute you enter the drive you feel instantly relaxed, and the decor of the reception bar and restaurant are simply stunning - when combined with the beautiful rose gardens and breathtaking views it makes you not wish to leave. The rooms also are lovely, the only disappointment was the bathroom - clearly missed in the renovation and with everything else so lovely it really sticks out as a miss - from the dated terracotta marble to the old damaged fittings and the mould on the tiles - its what prevents this hotel from hitting a 5..
The decor is what attracted me there and I was not disappointed the rooms were beautiful. There is a swimming pool, spa and sauna all great used them every day. It was in a great location handy to the winery's. the restaurant let me down but you can have a more simple meal in the bar pizza salt and pepper calamari and that was fantastic
My wife booked the Sebel Kirkton Park for a nice weekend away for my Birthday. This is a very nice spot, beautiful views, quite and relaxing. The staff were very pleasant and accomodating. We had a nice swim in the indoor pool followed by a relaxing dip in the jacuzzi. We stayed in a delux king suite and the room was very large, nicely decorated and furnished, and kept very clean. However, the bathroom could have done with a freshen up, it was large, nice and clean, but it wasn't quite to the standard of the rest of the room. We would definitely stay here again.
We came here for a friends anniversary dinner. We had drinks at the lounge bar first. The service was great from the beginning from Jessica. She was very polite, friendly and professional. After drinks we went to the restaurant for dinner. The men had 2 courses from the menu while the ladies had 1 course. The food was great. Well presented, tasty and well thought out. They gave us complimentary sides with dinner which was very nice. Had a great night here thanks to the staff. Would be back for sure.
This hotel is very good, the rooms spacious, immaculately clean and well appointed, the bathroom is of good size and the bed is extremely comfortable. The room has a semi private, semi shared balcony that offers a small three piece table and chairs. It appears as though the rooms have been renovated in the last year and the room is in excellent condition showing no wear. The shower was excellent, strong water pressure, just how I like it. Our room had a view of the courtyard and glimpses to the valley and ranges and looked the other way to the pool house, whilst I would have preferred a valley view this room and outlook was pleasant for our stay. There is plenty of car parking close to the room. The hotel public areas, bars and restaurant looked somewhat empty. Whilst elegantly furnished they felt empty and not inviting, I thought the Breakfast pricing was excessive at $38 per person and there was no light breakfast options. My wife and i wanted a simple style breakfast and this was not available. On the Friday night we returned to the hotel to go to the bar and it was empty and no staff present, we just returned to the room, this was a touch disappointing. Overall we can't fault the room but the public areas just had no vibe or presence hence the empty feel. For a quiet weekend away or in our case our accommodation for a wedding and a weekend away it was ideal.
Had the most delicious high tea at The Sebel Kirkton Park today. Despite the rain, fresh roses were picked and placed on our table, and rose petals scattered. They smelt beautiful! Such a relaxing environment to enjoy high tea. The service was outstanding. The good, looked stunning and was served on a traditional three tier stand. Served with a glass of bubbly it was lovely. The scones were soft and fresh. The dainty sandwiches and little sweet tarts were delicious. Even the cup of tea was served in a lovely traditional style cup and saucer. Overall, not the first visit I've had for high tea, but definitely the best one! Well done!
