Hermitage Lodge
Ranked #2 of 8 Pokolbin B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Hermitage lodge is very well located, central to just about everything in the Pokolbin area of the Hunter valley.

We stayed in the 'Calais' room which isn't luxurious by any stretch, but it was clean and reasonably comfy. There are some other, bigger, newer rooms on the property which I suspect are a bit fancier.

The in room continental breakfast was simple but nice.

Upon arrival the fellow from reception showed us to our room and pointed out how to use everything. I actually liked that - it was a nice personal touch you don't get at bigger hotels.

The service was great, definitely consider staying here again and recommend it to all my friends. Room had high ceilings and a great view of the vineyard. Great location, very convenient, only 4 minutes from Hunter Valley Gardens and Tempus Two cellar door.

Room Tip: For my partner and I we chosen the studio deluxe room and it was perfect.

in quick words, really good and beautiful place to stay.
Stayed there in Feb/2013 and found it a really good location for a family stay. Also reasonable price!

Unfortunately haven't any picture but worthwhile checking it out....

Stayed in a Vinyard Suite with a baby during Winter. Staff are friendly and very helpful. The gas fireplace was wonderful and we had a very toasty warm room in no time. The space is really large, so you feel very relaxed and not boxed in. The furnishings are lovely and very clean. I highly recommend the Il Cacciatore Restaurant, and if you're just wanting to rug up on the couch, every thing on the menu can be delivered. We ate in the restaurant for dinner but had our dessert delivered back to the room. Free wifi was very helpful. While there was a great little breakfast included, we chose the $20 hot breakfast option and were not disappointed. I will be staying here again - very happy!

Stayed June 2014, in Vineyard studio for $170 mid week. Conti b/fast in your room is included. Room is quite large with nice bed and pillows. Balcony overlooking vineyard is great. Il Cacciatore Restaurant is attached and was excellent. Bathroom was a good size but it has Soap Pumps and an average shower. This complex is one of the best in the area for staying, and I'll stay again. The negative would be the cancellation policy should you have to change plans.

Me and my husband stayed in the Loft for two nights in May 2014. The room itself was clean and well looked after, however for a 4 1/2 star accommodation there weren't any toiletries apart from the soap and a built in shower gel dispenser. Continental breakfast which was inclusive in the price consisted of two small tabs of yogurt and two packets of muesli stored in the bar fridge. Room service did not replaced towels and the wifi connection was not working. Additionally the water pressure was extremely low and it took ages to fill up the spa. Little things that add to the experience were a bit disappointing but overall it was a good stay.
