The Hunter Valley's family-friendly hotel and restaurant

The personal convenience of home

Take a 90-year-old pub brimming with old-world charm and country hospitality, mouthwatering meals, combined with a charming husband and wife team, and you have the perfect ingredients for a wonderful hotel experience.

Having recently taken ownership of the Ellalong Hotel in the Hunter Valley, Brett and Di believe in offering their customers a warm welcome and a classic service to ensure that everyone enjoys their stay. Whether you want to relax as an overnight guest, or simply drop in for a hearty meal or some great entertainment, Brett and Di will pull out all the stops.

With a family-friendly atmosphere, Brett and Di invite their customers to kick back and unwind by tucking into a menu packed full of flavoursome dishes including succulent steaks, rich risottos, crunchy salads, fresh fish, and plump country-style sausages. What’s more, there will be something new to try every time you return, as Paul the chef uses his culinary skills to create a scrumptious range of alternating specials.

With a beer garden to soak up the rays, a comfy bed for one night or a few, and a variety of great entertainment, the Ellalong Hotel will soon make you feel right at home. It’s family-run, family friendly, and focused on making sure you have a memorable experience.
