Relax in comfort with traditional pub-style Cessnock accommodation

Above the Restaurant and Bar of the Royal Oak Hotel in Cessnock is traditional pub-style accommodation for overnight stays or weekend packages in the Hunter Valley.

The 14 rooms are clean and comfortable with a combination of Queen, King and Twin beds all with high quality mattresses, crisp linen and fresh white towels. Oil heaters and overhead fans are there for your comfort. Half the rooms have French doors opening onto the Veranda.

There are shared bathroom facilities (separate Men’s and Women’s). Guests have exclusive use of the upstairs lounge with television, wifi and tea & coffee facilities.

Our Cafe is open from 7.00am every day serving hot drinks, fresh juices and delicious breakfasts. Full hot breakfasts are available from 8am on weekends.

Downstairs is our award winning 221 Restaurant & Bar, serving dinner from 6pm. Bookings are recommended and essential on weekends. This is a perfect choice if you are looking for a reasonably priced place to stay after a sensational dinner at 221 Restaurant & Bar, when attending a concert or wedding in the nearby Hunter Valley vineyards, or just touring the region.

Visiting the Hunter Valley’s Wineries

A visit to the area would not be complete without a little taster of the Hunter’s locally made wines. With over 100 wineries nearby, our staff can give recommendations and provide maps to their personal favourites. If you would like to join an organised wine tour, we highly recommend our friends at Grape Vine Tours who will pick you up from the hotel.

Hunter Valley & Pokolbin Concerts

The Royal Oak Hotel is a popular place to stay during concert weekends. Rover coaches who operate the bus services for these concerts have a pick up spot just outside the Hotel. Please see their website for more information.
