Hermitage Lodge

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 April 2014

We stayed in one of the king rooms (with spa) in the older wing of the lodge. Plenty of room - the cathedral ceiling probably accentuated the feeling of space. While these rooms have a kind of shared balcony, we enjoyed sitting out there in the mornings and evenings looking over the vines and enjoying the birdlife. I think one of the best things this place has going for it (apart from the very friendly and helpful staff) is the quality of the in-house dining. We didn't eat in the restaurant, but we did have excellent take-out pizza - a seriously great option on a rainy night after a hard day's wine tasting. We'll be back and will consider staying in one of the vineyard suites next time.

We go to The Hunter Valley every year for our wedding anniversary and CMC RTH, We have stayed somewhere different every time but will be back to The Hermitage because it was the stand out accommodation in the area. Location,Comfort,Style and Staff are all magnificent and highly recommended. If your in The Valley and need some class The Hermitage Lodge is your first and only port of call.

Room Tip: There are no bad choices

I stayed at the Lodge while there for CMC it was a little bit of heaven sitting on the balcony sipping a red and hearing the twangs from the concert and watch a mobb of Kangaroos hop past. The rooms were spacious and the spa bath heaven but it was the friendly service that truly makes it 5 star. And the food if you stay there have the Roasted pumkin pizza best pizza I have ever eaten.

Room Tip: Ask for the spa room - its worth it

My husband and I stayed at Hermitage Lodge last weekend for a concert at Bimbadgen winery. From the time we arrived we were made feel very welcome. We stayed in a deluxe spa room which was very comfortable. We had a common verandah, with a slatted screen between the units with a table and chairs overlooking the vineyard and another verandah at the front. While we didn't eat there, the onsite restaurant looked lovely, especially the verandah which was set up for dinner, also overlooking the vines. You were able to order room service from their A La Carte menu or pizzas, which were very reasonably priced. Location great and very easy to get around. Would highly recommend this property and will stay again and this time try the very popular restaurant.

Room Tip: If you want to have your own private verandah, then probably one of the studio rooms.

Really good place to stay for a couple of days whilst visiting Hunter Valley. The owners were friendly and helpful and having the restaurant on your doorstep is a plus. The only thing for me is that I am not keen of 'do it yourself' breakfast but that's me perhaps... it was nice in any case.

My husband & I spent a fabulous 2 nights at the Hermitage Lodge as part of our recent honeymoon tour of NSW & Queensland. Excellent accommodation - we had a lodge with spa bath & verandah views on both sides of the lodge - one looking out over the beautiful vineyard. There was ample parking space and the room was very comfortable. Free Wifi was a bonus too!We arrived on the Sunday late afternoon having driven up from Sydney and asked the front of house staff about booking onto a vineyard tour - they could not have been more helpful putting us in touch with Gary at The Vineyard Shuttle Service who phoned us back that evening persoanlly to organise picking us up at on the door step of the Lodge. Breakfast was put into the fridge by room service and it was lovely to sit out on the verandah on both mornngs enjoying the tranquility.

We had a wonderful meal at the Cacciatore Restaurant, the Award Winning restaurant on site at the Hermitage Lodge - it was great to put our wine tasting skills to the test with what was probably one of the best meals we experienced on our month long trip to Australia - well worth the expense!

We would definitely recommend the Hermitage Lodge if you are looking for a romantic break.
