We went there at probably the quietest time of the year. But it works out for us. We spent two nights there. Everything is just as I expect. I am very satisfied with our whole staying there. We ordered pizza in the first evening and didn't finish the whole thing. The room cleaning person somehow took it away the other... More

We had a gathering of friends who have known each other for 50 years (4 couples) and the Hermitage Lodge was an ideal venue with friendly and obliging staff to look after us. The food was excellent starting with dinner in the restaurant on Friday night, gnocchi making and lunch with wines on Saturday followed by an informal meal with... More

We hadn't been to the Hunter Valley before so was hard to know where to stay as there seemed so much good accommodation to choose from. In the end we choose Hermitage Lodge and was not disappointed. We decided on Pokolbin as it was very central to many wineries, also wanted somewhere where we could get food in the evening... More

Beautiful grounds and rooms. Great overall atmosphere and decor. Delicious food from room service and restaurant using mostly local produce. Very friendly, knowlegeable and helpful staff. Comfortable beds and lounges, fluffy towels and thick pillows. This is easliy the best place I have ever stayed. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone from families to singles or couples.

Had a great time here at hermitage lodge. We stayed a few nights in one of the suites. Beautiful view, close enough to many vineyards. The room was a good size, the staff were amazing, helpful and friendly, the restaurant was excellent and the price was great. The room was cleaned everyday and it all just made our trip away...

Had an amazing stay with Hermitage Lodge. Views and rooms were amazing. Welcome letter was informative and removed the usual clutter of signs you can expect in a hotel/lodge room. Staff were second to none and the food was delicious. First time in the Hunter Valley and they were very accommodating. Would stay again.

Room was comfortable and well maintained. The restaurant "Il Cacciatore" was fantastic. Chef went out of his way to meet my Wife's dietary needs and... More

Beautiful location. Excellent restaurant. Rooms are a good size and very clean. The balcony has lovely view over vineyards and bushland. Quiet and comfortable night sleep. Continental breakfast included in your room to eat on balcony and plunger coffee provided. An overall wonderful stay.

Hermitage Lodge is in a fantastic location in the Hunter Valley and has an amazing on-site restaurant that I highly recommend. Honestly though, I would not stay here again despite the room being comfortable. The reason? The letter we received upon check-in that outlined the "rules" of the hotel. While I know these are standard to sometimes find in your... More

TimeoutSydney, Owner at Hermitage Lodge, responded to this review

Dear Jacquie, Thank you so much for your review and for attaching the letter, I actually thought that maybe you got some other correspondence. The letter has evolved over the years as a result of various situations we have encountered. Unfortunately people do not read information in the compendiums. Originally we handed the guests the welcome letter, however they didn’t... More

Very well appointented accomodation with full kitchen and large fridge. Complimentary breakfast provisions are yummy and great quality. Acommodation very cosy, but modern and well-kept. Only negative was the bed - was a bit hard... More
