“Amazing”
Reviewed April 9, 2014 via mobile

This place is absolutely AMAZING.
Quiet and relaxing, wouldn't have stayed anywhere else.

If your looking to get away from anyone, and just spend quality time with your wife/girlfriend/fiancée, this is the place to go..

Their cottages are so cute and just the perfect space...
Prices are good and well worth the trip :)

The owners Chris&Ben Bray are the Nicest people you shall ever talk to :)

We stayed here 21-23 March 2014 with a group of friends going to A Day on the Green. What a fantatic place to stay. From the welcoming afternoon tea provided to the bacon, eggs, bread, cereal coffee, real milk and tea to the lovely rooms with private bathrooms, everything was perfect.. Xena the dog was our little friend who greeted us in the evening and the mornings and as a dog lover, I enjoyed her visits! The cottage was very comfortable and spacious. My only negative is that we didn't plan a longer stay! We will definitely be returning to stay here again as soon as it can be organised. We are a group of 5 couples but I would recommend this property to anyone.

Room Tip: I don't think it matters roomwsie. If there are more than 2 of you then the obvious choice is o...

After touring Australia for a month, we decided that The Grange was the very best place we had stayed. Cris was a great hostess - even loaned us a large pot in which to cook our pasta! The kitchen was well provisioned with most everything one needed to self cater. The fridge was stocked with breakfast goodies including the freshest eggs and a lovely fruit salad. Two comfortable bedrooms with two large bathrooms were much appreciated as we were two couples. The location was perfect for wine-touring. Just loved the Grange!

We spent two nights at this vineyard rental and loved every minute of our stay. Chris & Ken were amazing hosts, and made us feel so welcome the moment we arrived. Chris arranged our boutique wine tour with Brian, which we thoroughly enjoyed! Our accommodations were perfect right down to the Anzac cookies, and fresh warm banana bread...thanks so much Chris! Our only complaint is that we wish we could have stayed much longer. Enjoyed sharing a glass of wine with Chris, Ken and Lynn and Michael. Felt like we were spending time with good friends. Definitely the highlight of our trip thus far. We would highly recommend a stay at the Grange and hope to return in the future ourselves.

We had a fantastic time staying at The Grange over the Christmas period. Chris and Ken were wonderful hosts and really made us feel very welcome. The accommodation is lovely and makes for a beautiful weekend break for couples in a romatic countryside setting.

We could not agree more with the positive reviews that The Grange has received on TripAdvisor and would not hesitate to recommed to anyone visiting the Hunter Valley.

Visited the Grange and had the most amazing weekend! The Grange offers accommodation in both hotel style guest rooms and private cottages, catering to all travellers needs. Having experienced both I can highly recommend and do so as often as possible.

Chris and Ken were made for this! The service provided made me feel like I was home with family and the accommodations provide all of those comforts we would love to affored in our own homes! Chris and Ken are hosts who offer vast local knowledge and 'in the know' recommendations- which is exactly what we needed to find our way around the beautiful Hunter Valley!

Am certainly looking forward to my next visit to The Grange on Hermitage!

We enjoyed every minute of our time at The Grange. We received the warmest welcome on arrival and everything just kept getting better from there. Our room was fitted out with everything we could possibly need and we woke each morning to a beautiful breakfast. We look forward to another stay at The Grange.
