“A beautiful country escape”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

I needed somewhere to stay whilst I attended the very sad occasion of my Uncle's funeral. I couldn't have found a more peaceful, comfortable and welcoming place to stay. I booked for myself and other relatives all travelling from different states and driving very long distances thus arriving at different, and rather late, times. The managers at Hermitage Hill were so welcoming and made every effort to make our stay comfortable. Nothing seemed too much trouble. We stayed in the guest house which, although modern, still retains it's old world charm. The main buildings are magnificent and a wonderful reminder of a time gone by. Unlike the other motels in Wellington, Hermitage Hill does not suffer from the terrible rumble of traffic from the main road. In fact it is so peaceful and quiet it's hard to remember that you are within walking distance to town !
I would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful country retreat.

Room Tip: The guest house is fantastic if you are travelling as a group. Ask for a room that has verandah acc...

Would not honour booking/voucher and were extremely rude with about it, they had over booked us for a function. I would not recommend this place for either functions or accommodation, possibly the worst customer service I have ever experienced. No refund and no accommodation. Never saw the rooms but if they were as inhospitable as the management I certainly would not recommend it.

Definitely not for city slickers, but this place and it's location are about as genuine country town as you can get while still accessing water, tv, air conditioning, comfy clean beds. Overall it's a nice stay. The place was originally a hospital and has been renovated with a touch of olde world charm. It has a number of cottages available for families but each room/cottage is unique so difficult to critique. Our cottage was the original store and has a claw foot bath and classic tiles. The balcony view was a serene view overlooking the valley and a mob of kangaroos. There are security gates. Restaurant only open Friday and Saturday nights so shop at Coles or Woolies and use the plates, cups and cutlery provided.

Felt like management had some issue with company they had the package deal with. Didnt offer anywhere for our two children to stay with us as an extra just that upgrading would cost more than the package.
Probably my fault just expected a little more in the way of flexibility being a little country town. But I am from the bush and it was only an internet deal.

The old hospital has been wonderfully restored and retains its original character. The town itself is a bit of a let down - but the guest house and main reception area are wonderful if you are looking for a period building with lots of charm. We had dinner in the restaurant, which was also very nice. Only down side of the place was the lack of bathrooms/toilets in the guest house - 13 rooms and only 2 toilets/bathrooms for the girls.......

We stayed here on a Friday night. The room was very small but nicely furnished. There was only one bedside table and the room was very dark. It has been converted from the old hospital - but they should have joined two room together to make each room much more comfortable. The room including the ensuite was very clean. We had been advised that the restaurant was open but when we walked over it was closed! Very limited eating options in Wellington.

We stayed here for one night over the Easter weekend - the place is set on a hill about a kilometre from Wellington, which is a town of a few pubs and takeaways and not much else, but convenient for Orange, Mudgee or Dubbo

The hotel is in a converted hospital and has quite a dated feel, but our room had been decorated fairly recently, and had a modern feel, with a good ensuite. It also opened onto a shared verandah which was a nice spot to watch the sunset with a glass of wine.

There is a restaurant onsite, but it was closed when we were there - we ordered dinner from the room service option, and the meals were good, but dont expect anything more than a decent quality home cooked dinner

Good option if you need accommodation in this area, as the other options looked to be fairly unexciting motels

Room Tip: Room 14 is nice
