“Perfect Hunter Valley accommodation!”
Reviewed November 3, 2011

My partner and I along with another couple each stayed in a king room and we could not fault this place at all! We called ahead, and arriving late after work on a Friday was not an issue, Ken was very welcoming and helped us with our bags.
The personal service made it such a great experience and it was lovely seeing their 2 black Labradors, Xena and Ellie, around the property and on the veranda each morning.
The rooms were spotless and looked brand new. They offer everything you need for a weekend away, or even longer!
We loved our stay, and cannot recommend it more! We will definitely be back next time we are in the Hunter!

Everything was better than our expectations. Our tip, don't just book online ring Chris as well to get personal service and advice, it's worth it. At her suggetion we ended up in better accommodation, The Barn, private with fire and saved tariff as we were a couple, not 4.

I wanted somewhere to stay when my boyfriend and I went to the Hunter Valley for our anniversary in July 2011, and I looked at a few other places but I was drawn to the Grange on Hermitage because of the amazing reviews and also the great price. We drove up from Sydney on Friday afternoon after work and we arrived at the Grange at 8pm on Friday night, where we were met by Ken & Chris and one of their black labradors, Zena. We checked in and Ken showed us to our room and helped us unpack our bags from the car. It was about 9 degrees outside, and our room was nice and warm with the air con on.

The room was amazing! It was very large, with a small kitchen in a separate area and a large bathroom. In the kitchen was supplies for breakfast - milk, juice, fresh fruit salad, yoghurt, fresh bread, cereals, coffee & tea making supplies, and there was also a jug, a toaster and a microwave. And the spa in the bathroom was great!

It was very quiet and tranquil, and both mornings we enjoyed breakfast on our verandah with Ellie, the other black labrador. When we arrived home from a day of wine tasting, our room had been cleaned and we had new towels. The location was great, because it was a 10 minute drive from most of the places we wanted to go. Ken and Chris were very welcoming and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We will definitely be back again soon!

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!

Located on a beautiful acreage property. The cabin is roomy and was spotless. Air conditioner worked well on both hot and cold. Spa bath was a bonus. One room had a connecting on suite and the other was virtually one step away from the other bathroom. Flat screen tv was great in the roomy lounge area. Dining room was great for up to 4 adults. Kitchen had all the utensils and pots and pans you'd need. On arrival we were given fresh fruit salad and bacon, eggs, bread, yoghurt, cereal and milk were also supplied. Location was good with most wineries within 10 minute drive. Definitely recommended.

We had a great time staying at the Grange. We were greeted by Chris with homemade cake and so much warmth that we felt instantly at home. The setting for the accomodation is excellent. If you want to see kangaroos, just look around at dusk, they are everywhere! Ellie the dog is also ever present waiting for a stroke too.

The suit we had was spot on. On one very hot day we cycled round the valley (on bikes loaned to us by Chris) and came back to our own spa to sit in and cool off.

A wine tour is definately recommended and Chris will give you information about them. We had a really good time in the Hunter Valley and it is an essential place to visit if you are travelling to New South Wales.

Recently spent two nights at this lovely property. The owners went above & beyond in assisting us and the cottage was very clean, quiet, cozy, modern & well equiped. Included were provisions for a very delicious breakfast. Would highly recommend!
