My partner booked this trip as a surprise for our anniversary and having not been to the hunter before I wasn't really sure what to expect. However, upon driving into the property at Hermitage Grange I was instantly impressed.
We were running late from Sydney and didn't arrive until about 10.30, we had called in advance to let them know and Ken was so understanding and polite. When we arrived we were greeted by Zena and Ellie the beautiful black labs and Ken offered us a hand to take things inside from the car.
We stayed in one of the Guestrooms attached to the main house and the room was absolutely beautiful! Spotlessly clean and warm it was the perfect spot for our weekend away. The bed was extremely comfortable and the breakfast provisions for the morning were supplied in abundance, we were left wanting for nothing.
We spent most of the day out visiting the wineries, the Grange is very central with most of the top wineries only a 10 minute drive. When we returned home the room had been cleaned, the dishes done and the bed made- not at all what we were expecting!
I would definitely recommend the Grange for anyone who is wanting a quiet weekend away, it is beautifully clean and tidy and the hosts are so friendly. I couldn't say a bad word about it!
