Excellent Accommodation

Pros: Location, cleanliness and the rear deck, overall the whole package.
Location: Location is perfect and only 5 minutes away from heaps of wineries so no noise.
Stayed at the Hermitage Lodge for 3 nights recently and was very impressed. It is located in a great position with First Creek Winery straight across the road. Room was warm, clean and comfortable. The staff were all very nice and helpful. It had a rear deck overlooking the vineyards and was where we sat for 2 of the 3 nights and on the last night we had a beautiful Italian meal from the on-site restaurant who also had friendly staff. Even though we were at the front of the complex we could not hear any road traffic. I would highly recommend the Hermitage Lodge and can't wait to go back and stay again.

Hermitage Lodge is exceptional. Our room was comfortable and clean, the continental breakfast provided was delicious and the view from our balcony was over the grape vines and we could see kangaroos. It is central to all the wineries however still far enough away that it is nice and peacefully quiet at nighttime. The staff at Hermitage Lodge are warm and friendly, and very professional. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely book again!
