Stayed in the vineyard suite for 2 nights. Close to all the wineries and amenities. Had a couple of issues with the package we booked but was attended to with the utmost professionalism. The staff are very friendly and the restaurant is a must. Would stay again.

We had a delightful overnight stay at the Hermitage Lodge Pokolbin. It’s obvious this place is run by caring people who work hard to make their lodge work and are lucky to have loyal staff. It is set in the heart of the Hunter Valley vineyards, and the surrounds are very pretty. Wishing to sample some of our favorite vineyards...

Hermitage lodge is very well located, central to just about everything in the Pokolbin area of the Hunter valley. We stayed in the 'Calais' room which isn't luxurious by any stretch, but it was clean and reasonably comfy. There are some other, bigger, newer rooms on the property which I suspect are a bit fancier. The in room continental breakfast...

The service was great, definitely consider staying here again and recommend it to all my friends. Room had high ceilings and a great view of the vineyard. Great location, very convenient, only 4 minutes from Hunter Valley Gardens and Tempus Two cellar door.

Stayed in a Vinyard Suite with a baby during Winter. Staff are friendly and very helpful. The gas fireplace was wonderful and we had a very toasty warm room in no time. The space is really large, so you feel very relaxed and not boxed in. The furnishings are lovely and very clean. I highly recommend the Il Cacciatore Restaurant,...

Me and my husband stayed in the Loft for two nights in May 2014. The room itself was clean and well looked after, however for a 4 1/2 star accommodation there weren't any toiletries apart from the soap and a built in shower gel dispenser. Continental breakfast which was inclusive in the price consisted of two small tabs of yogurt...
