My husband and I had had a hectic first half of the year, with minimal time to unwind or relax. We decided to indulge in a weekend away in the Hunter Valley - staying at Tower lodge was the most beautiful birthday present I've ever had. Stunningly beautiful surroundings, great service - friendly and ultra professional, fantastic food and wine... More

Tower Lodge delivers everything that is expected of a Relais & Chateau property...ideal location, generously sized guest rooms, tasteful interior design and an excellent in-house restaurant (Restaurant Nine). The attentive and friendly staff is ably led by the property's charming Maitre du Maison Andreas. We were particularly impressed by Andreas's willingness to make our visit a memorable one, such as...

My husband and I stayed at Towers Lodge last weekend for an anniversary stay and it was amazing. We had a wonderful experience from start to finish and just did not want it to end.

We arrived at the property on July 4th, which is our wedding anniversary. We were looking for a special place to spend it. From the road the place looks like something from the southwestern U.S. We weren't sure what to make of it at first sight. Upon closer inspection we were pleasantly surprised. The front entry doors are quite special... More

I had actually booked at the charming Pepper's convent hotel just a stone's throw away, but we found ourselves at the Lodge (at same cost) as the Convent was closed for repairs. We were somewhat nonplussed at first, but the experience was even better: perfect service, huge cozy room, great bedding, excellent collation in the room, you tell it. And,... More

Tower Lodge is the only place to stay. The service from the staff is impeccable. The rooms are magnificent, and you feel like royalty when you stay there. The room we stayed in was bright and open, with a king bed, beautiful lounges, and a HUGE spa bath. We had a perfect view of the vines and gardens from our... More

I never write reviews because I have never stayed in a place that was worthy of my time until now. Tower Lodge is without question the best Relais & Chateaux property I have ever stayed in, and I have stayed in a few. The Lodge is just magnificant not only in the rooms and amenities but the service as well,... More

Unbelievable. My husband and I stayed here last weekend for our anniversary and we were totally blown away with the entire experience. The best weekend of our lives.

“All the rooms are designed so you can't see another room from your balcony, or french doors. I liked the "your own little world" aspect so any room is fine.”
