A delightful place to stay right in the heart of the Hunter Valley. Chris & Ken made our stay a home away from home. Thoroughly enjoyed Chris's homemade muffins for brekkie! Thank you to you both (& of course Zena) for making our first time visit to the Hunter Valley a special one!

We have stayed at the Grange many times over the past 15 years and always find it to be excellent. The owners Chris and Ken are very hospitable and have an obvious understanding of the business they are in. Would recommend this accommodation to anyone.

A couple of friends and I stayed at the Grange for 2 nights in the 'Lillypilly cottage'. It was absolutely perfect from the start to the finish. The owners called as we hadn't arrived before sunset to check that we weren't lost. We were greeted very warmly, also by their beautiful dog, Xena, and were shown to the cottage despite...

We stayed at the Grange on Hermitage for two nights a few weekends back. It provided a lovely rural retreat set in a beautiful well-cared for garden. We stayed in one of the purpose-built, very generous bedrooms attached to the side of the house. The queen size room was well-designed and spacious as was the bathroom which had a spa...

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this B&B. We stayed in one of their cabins which was extremely clean and comfortable. The cabin had a wonderful verandah overlooking the gardens and valley on which we could enjoy our meals and late night drinks! Owners are lovely people, very accommodating, kind and knowledgeable.
