ELFIN HILL

In 1972, Elfin Hill was born right here, on a former cattle farm. Reg Neilson, a true visionary, crafted a haven of country charm, pioneering vineyard stays in the Hunter Valley.

Move forward to 2000’s, and Mark and Marie Blackmore, with their hearts set on hospitality, took Elfin Hill under their wing. They expanded the warmth, adding the inviting Guest Pavilion, a professional kitchen, and the luxurious Loft Villa. With decades of experience in both hospitality and construction, the Blackmores poured their passion into creating a place where guests feel truly welcome.

We paid $325 per night and it was definitely not worth $325 pn. The host was friendly and showed us around. Decent location. Positives * Friendly host * Decent views Negatives *Rooms felt a little small (Coming from western australia, we are used to bigger houses and bigger stays in the Margaret River region) * Asking for anything was a hassle as one has to go out, walk to the front or the back and ring the phone to request for anything. We have travelled the world and boutique places like these generally SMSes/messages via booking app, can be sent to the owners/managers instead of having to go out and ring the phone. You are comfortable in PJs and really do not feel like going out to ask for anything. If $325 pn is being charged, the service should match the price as well. The tissue box only had 5 tissues left when we checked-in and only 4-5 coffee sachets were placed. The next day when we went out for lunch and came back, we thought coffee and other things would be replenished but weren’t (again, $325 pn is pricey for a not so good service, this was at best $170-$200 pn). We have stayed at 50 odd locations in Margaret River and service in the MR region is always good. They place condiments and welcome snacks from local bakeries among other things. * The small plates were a little unclean and had to wash before use. * Although the living room and balcony were renovated the bathrooms are outdated * The aircon is at an obscure location and never really cools the bed area as there is no direct flow from the aircon, always felt warm around the bed area even when the temp is set to 17° and max flow. * One of the other places we looked at were newer construction and had breakfast included, we felt the breakfast should have been included for $325 pn. * One of our neighbours were very loud till night but that’s not an accommodation problem. Hope the feedback is taken positively and improved upon.

Wonderful accomodation. Comfortable, clean room with great views of the property and wildlife. Mari made our stay extra special with her attention to detail and real milk in the fridge. Not to mention her smile 😊 Top venue, highly recommend Elfin Hill accommodation.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. I’m glad we chose this accommodation as it was clean and comfortable. It’s a very pleasant place to stay and Marie and Mark are amazing hosts. They were so friendly. We enjoyed the view, breakfast and everything. We loved the omelettes. Marie also suggested nearby places to visit. Thank you very much for this pleasant experience.

We stayed here for two nights - with our little two-year old. Very happy about the accommodation- we had the separate house with the antresole and it was perfect for our needs (little one could sleep upstairs while we were enjoying the downstairs). Also loved the direct access to the terrace and expansive grass area. Continental breakfast was lovely and the owners very friendly. Highly recommend! Could easily stay for a few days!
