Wonderful hospitality!
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 Mar 2021
Have just stayed at the Grange this weekend and cannot rate it highly enough! We stayed in a beautifully appointed two bedroom cottage which had everything you could ask for and more! Chris and Ken give you the most wonderful experience and go above and beyond to make your stay a most pleasurable experience. We had eggs,bacon,bread,cereals and fresh fruit so everything for a lovely breakfast was at hand.Freshly cooked muffins were supplied by Chris and when the power went out and we couldn't have dinner at the nearby Ironbark brewery Chris and Ken offered to go into town and bring us back pizza's-such wonderful hospitality! The grounds are just beautiful and having their lovely black lab Zena to greet us was so good.I cannot speak highly enough of the Grange - we will definitely be back!

Take a group of girls for a Hunter getaway! Chris and Ken recently looked after my friends and I and, of course, everything was fabulous. From a well stocked breakfast hamper to comfortable beds they have thought of everything! If you book taxis or tours you can easily direct them to your cottage for easy pick-up and drop off, this property is in the heart of the Winery locations. Need hints on where to go and what to see? Just ask Chris & Ken! Their local knowledge covers all you need to know! Thanks for looking after us!

This little hidden gem will become your new go to in the HV. Ken was extremely welcoming (his wife Chris was away when we were there) and Zena makes sure you are comfy and always willing to help get rid of dinner leftovers 😂.

The fridge is stocked, the egg basket is full, the rooms are spacious and the beds are comfy. We had a villa and the spa bath was spectacular! The property is well maintained and welcoming for the Roos and the ducks to visit. And it’s nearly smack bang in the middle of everything. Freshly baked goodies get dropped off every morning - like really, what else do you need!

If all you want to do is vineyard hop and drink all the wine you bought in peace this is definitely the place to come, and we will definitely be back for a longer stay next time!

We loved our stay at The Grange. This place exceeded our expectations. The accomodation is clean and cosy. Just beautiful. However it is the awesome hosts that really make this place stand out. They are so welcoming and provide a delicious array of options for breakfast . The owner even bakes muffins for you every morning and makes sweet treats for you. I honestly loved this place and can’t wait to stay here again. It’s in a good spot too - not far from wineries . Fantastic ! thanks for a great stay !

We received a lovely warm welcome and stayed in one of the spacious room which was spotlessly clean including a microwave and tea making equipment. Breakfast was a lovely continental (in your room) with home made muffins. It was a great break away especially from the COVID. They are close to everything. We will definitely stay there again.

We have been to Hunter Valley many times, but it's our first time staying in the Grange on Hermitage, but it is definitely our go to place now when we are visiting Hunter Valley. From the moment we book for the stay, Chris has been extremely wonderful - very helpful and accommodating. We travel as group of 5 families sharing the 3 cottages. Chris and Ken have accommodate us all to our needs and really appreciate their friendliness and hospitality. When we arrived, a freshly baked afternoon tea await us and each morning freshly home made muffin and banana bread were delivered to each of the cottages. (Chris - would you mind sharing the banana bread recipe please). The cottages were clean and spotless and fully equipped with all amenities. We really can't recommend enough for this place. Definitely will stay again in the Grange on Hermitage in the near future. Thank you Chris and Ken!

Room tip: The Vineyard Barn is the newest cottage and best of all comes with Netflix.
