We stayed at Hermitage Lodge to attend a wedding in the area. The room was very comfortable, had a lovely outlook, was quiet and the breakfast supplied was very pleasant. The staff were very friendly and obliging but the jewel in the crown is the restaurant. We enjoyed a delicious meal, beautifully presented and, rarely for us, we were tempted...

We stayed Monday to Wednesday and really enjoyed the property, We booked the room deluxe with spa and got the king bed. It was the Calais room. The room was nice with the wooden deck out the back overlooking a little vineyard, the room it's self was quite large and so was the bathroom, The spa was a great addition....

Just had two nights at Hermitage Lodge, great facilities and lovely sunny deck overlooking vineyards. Nice food provided for breakfast in your room. Close to lots of good wineries. Would definitely recommend.

Lovely, tranquil place to stay overlooking vineyard. We had a studio + suite for two couples. Studio is huge and you'd only really need the suite if you particularly want a bath tub or to self-cater. Terrific Italian restaurant on-site - suspect our booking was essential - and numerous eateries and wine places within a short drive. Highly recommended for...

I never write these things BUT feel the need to this time. We had a ladies weekend away (8 of us, average age 40).. NO KIDS.. and used the Premier Suite as our "gathering spot". A fully equipped kitchen suited us fine so we could lounge around in our peejays, gas fire, footy on TV. A quick phone call the...

We stayed for a few nights as a stop-over on our way to Sydney in order to explore the area and try some nice wines. The accommodation was adequate and spacious and there was allocated parking right outside our lodge. The location is perfect as there are cellar doors within walking distance if you don't want to drive (one directly...

Arrival was smooth and trouble free. We were escorted to our room, shown the features and then left to our own devices. The room was clean and comfortable with a balcony out the back. Air conditioned for our comfort. We had a package which included dinner in the restaurant and breakfast one morning delivered to our door. Staff were very...

This place was recommended by a fried who had visited before. My husband and I liked the central location, the small number of cottages and the beautiful surroundings. We took a couple mile walk each day down the side road that had little traffic, but great views and a lot of kangaroo sightings. We enjoyed sitting out on our balcony...

I booked this property for the Springsteen concert in February 2017 through a third party provide, with the booking confirmed. I was just advised that the property cannot accommodate me without giving me a reason. This is not acceptable and smacks of trying to extract extra cash at a busy time. Certainly will not be recommending this place to anyone...

Thank you for review. Your reservation may have been confirmed by the Third Party provider, however, it had not been confirmed by us, the provider of the accommodation. We have only 20 beautifully appointed rooms and as our property is conveniently located next to Hope Estate where a large number of 'big name' concerts perform, we are often the first...
