My husband and I just spent the weekend here … It was a wedding anniversary surprise and I was worried as he is possibly the fussiest man alive when it comes to my accom choices … The location was perfect, walking distance (if you wanted to, we did have good intentions!) to many fab wineries and perfectly relaxing.

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. As we went at the end of September we did not think we would have to use it but it got quite chilly after the sun went down. The only let down was our towels were... More

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. The staff are amazing, with no request an issue. Meals are fantastic - including great cooked breakfasts. Great space available for meetings or private dinning. Centrally located, and a team... More

Love this place. The rooms are spacious, clean and the place is quiet enough for one to totally unwind. There is a restaurant at the hotel which serves great pasta. A little vineyard is just at the doorstep of the lodges and it makes a beautiful backdrop to any photos. You wake up in the morning to the crisp air... More

Location is perfect, right in the centre of Pokolbin. The staff were really friendly and welcoming and the lodge that we stayed in was beautiful. I could see myself spending weeks chilling out here. We are already planning our next trip in October and would recommend to my friends and family.

My husband and I stayed here for unfortunately only 1 night last weekend. We stayed in a spa loft suite. The room was lovely and clean and quite a decent size. A small breakfast is provided for you in the fridge of yogurt, english muffins, tea and coffee etc. The spa was a great size. There is a little veranda... More
