Hosts Mark and Noreen were exceptional in their warm welcome, looking after us during our stay and ensuring we had an amazing experience :) We stayed two nights, one of which we dined at the fantastic restaurant "Il Cacciatore", which comes highly recommended. Make sure you make a reservation - this place books out quickly. Try the wine produced from...

we stayed in the wonderlee suite, which is a two-storey apartment that had a bedroom with spa bath upstairs and kitchen and living room downstairs. Verandah overlooked the vineyards and location of resort was right in the heart of pokolbin. My only complaint was that wifi was not working properly in our room, which hampered our research for next destination...

I stayed in this property for 2 nights and it was an excellent place to chill out and relax over a couple of days. On arrival I found the owners to be very helpful with the information they supplied about the property and the rooms. I stayed in a Vineyard Studio and the room was very spacious and would suit...

Hermitage Lodge is an excellent base for exploring the Hunter. The rooms are well appointed, the staff friendly and the food at the hotel restaurant it lovely. This is the second time we have stayed there and hope get the opportunity to go back again next year.

We stayed here for one night on a Saturday and had a lovely time. We had a spa room - I can't say if it was worth the extra to the standard room as we didn't make use of the spa but it was lovely and peaceful. Highlights:- -Having a glass of wine on the back verandah overlooking the vineyards;...

We really loved our one night stay in the HoneyTree room at Hermitage Lodge. We received a warm welcome at reception it was a nice touch to be shown to the room and have everything explained to you. Room exceeded our expectations - it was very spacious and we liked having the separate living and sleeping areas. We loved the...

This was our second hotel on our trip. I would describe the room as less hotel and more chalet. We had the Honeytree room. The end of a row of chalets with a wrap around verandah overlooking rows of vines. It was very hot on our visit. The air conditioning was ok but not great. The chalet had a small...

Great location and beautiful setting. Our porch overlooked a little vineyard, the room was nice, clean, and there was even breakfast provided in the fridge. We also ate at the restaurant which was delicious and also looked out over the vineyard. Hermitage was walking distance to a couple wineries and a short drive to most. Also, lots of kangaroos wandering...
