Sitting Sentinel and gazing majestically over the historic village of Wellington is Hermitage Hill Country Retreat and Function Centre, a boutique accommodation and function centre. In 1904, Wellington was a flourishing, confident town that expressed in the magnificent Hospital it built for the townspeople. Constructed in the highly detailed Queen Ann style, the town spared no expense with beautiful detail throughout the building.
The Old Hospital beds have been wheeled out and a glamorous makeover has turned the historic building into a grand boutique accommodation, function centre and restaurant.
Located 4 ½ hrs from Sydney, central to Dubbo, Mudgee, Orange and Parkes, Hermitage Hill is set facing the Macquarie River Valley to the East and the Bell River Valley to the West, the 100 year old District Hospital Complex (Circa 1904) has undergone a mammoth restoration to present Hermitage Hill Country Retreat.
Group bookings or just needing that quick stopover with luxury and little expense, the Guesthouse is an excellent venue, with accommodation for up to 30 people. All 13 individual rooms have been completely remodelled and feature air-conditioned comfort, tv and fridges. Take in the spectacular views over the town from the wide verandahs, or relax in the large indoor guest lounge or cool off in the swimming pool.
Serving classic dishes with a contemporary style, the menu has a seasonal focus and can be changed on a daily basis to allow for fresh local produce to be used. Meals can be prepared for all dietary requirements and are created by the careful hand of Chef Wayne (owner).
Hermitage Hill is the ideal venue for Corporate Functions, Wedding Receptions, a Gala Ball, Birthday Party or other formal or semi-formal celebrations catering for meeting groups from 10, upwards to seating 170 people. A great venue with ample car parking, bus turn circle, disabled access, all the accessories you need for your event.
