We stayed at the Hermitage Lodge for one night and thought the location was perfect, very central. The room we had was a one bedroom studio and was quite a good size, as was the bathroom. It was lovely to have a glass of wine on the verandah overlooking the vines. The rate included a continental breakfast which was in... More

My girlfriend and I spent a few nights at Hermitage Lodge and couldn't be happier. The service was excellent, and the accommodation was clean, comfortable and well appointed. The outlook over the little vineyard from the deck is gorgeous, and was the perfect way to spend the afternoon. The location is right in the heart of everything (yet just far... More

Lovely hotel centrally located in Hunter Valley. Stayed in the vineyard studio which has a nice open floor plan with a cute little balcony facing the vines. Room was clean and spacious. Few things to note, continental breakfast is included and is actually already in the fridge upon arrival--which allows one to have a midnight snack (if you get hungry... More

The staff at Hermitage could not have been friendlier, the room was perfect & the food great. It's not often you can say that there was not a single problem when you stay somewhere, but Hermitage Lodge was great, and we had no complaints at all. Even the on site restaurant was perfect. Everything within the room like, Spa, TV,... More

We have never stayed here previously. We often visit the Hunter region and stay at some of the bigger places. We chose to stay here for our wedding anniversary and were not disappointed at all. The rooms are wonderful and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was wonderful as well. It is a continental breakfast and is filling and tasty... More

Hermitage lodge is a beautiful accommodation complex. We stayed in a vineyard suite and it was spacious and clean. The fireplace worked a treat.

On our regular stays at the hunter valley we always went here. This was always our favourite. One day we went in for lunch and they refused to do a meal at lunch which was in the dinner menu. They were not polite in advising us of this. We have not returned and they lost a regular client.

Able to accommodate 20 people in private rooms (range of room standards from large suites to standard) this is a great venue for a private event, meeting or group booking.
