This is the second time in 12 months we have stayed at this location. We stayed in the Scarborough Suit both times. The accomodation is first class with a great bed, comfortable furnishings and a cosy fire place. The restaurant is probably the feature along with the accomodation that will have us return regularly, mainly in winter.

My wife and I spent 3 nights at the lodge and enjoyed every minute. We have travelled world wide and enjoyed many excellent hotels but this one is up there with the best. The staff could not have been more helpful and we are looking forward to a return visit in future.

I was very impressed with their outstanding custom service from checked in staff to house keeping and not to mentioned how friendly the staffs on the I was checked out, super clean for some one a super clean freak like me, spacious room where you can’t find any other places nearby with the price they offer (I’ve been travelling since I was 17 yo and always like to have big room that I can breathe without feeling like stuck in a cubicle), stunning view at the verandah that make you feel so relax yet amazed the way they designed the landscape, beautiful restaurant onsite with 5stars customer service and excellent foods. Please take your time to see my pics and video before you decide to other places, it’s highly recommended place to visit. I would definitely give 10stars if trip advisor has it as Hermitage Logde deserves it and definitely going back!!!!

The photos don't do the Hermitage Lodge justice. I came here for my 60th birthday and so pleased with my choice. I loved my room. It had a separate bedroom (fans and air-con), a separate sitting/lounge room and a spa bath. It was spotless. I had a choice of balconies to sit on, one overlooking the vineyards there. They have a restaurant on site where I ate for dinner. Each room is named after a winery. The room was like a little house in itself with pitched ceilings. Very cosy. The staff were exceptional too!
