A luxury lodge set in the heart of Hunter Valley food and wine country.
Welcome to Tower Lodge, a stylish and luxurious family estate, a ‘home away from home’ set among the vineyards and gumtrees and Australia’s best-known culinary wine region, the New South Wales Hunter Valley.
Tower Lodge is owned and operated by the Hope family, who warmly welcome guests as friends.
Positioned in the heart of Pokolbin in Hunter Valley’s rich food and wine country, Tower Lodge is a standout property with its Spanish-style architecture and rustic-refined interiors ideally suited to the region’s warm summers and cool winters. There’s an easy vibe at Tower Lodge, where good food and beverages, long lunches, lazy afternoons and decadent dinners are all on the menu. Food and wine are central to the experience at Tower Lodge, taking its inspiration from the diverse regional produce and drinks sourced fresh from local suppliers as well as from the family’s own farm and kitchen garden. Each of Tower Lodge’s generously proportioned 14 suites is individually styled with soaring ceilings, grand king beds, luxury ensuite bathrooms, lounging areas and bespoke artwork. Several suites also feature open fireplaces, while the expansive premium Tower Suite boasts a rooftop hot tub, plus a separate living room and a c1550 four-poster bed from Rajasthan. The property is centred around a warm terracotta plaza, while a striking stucco tower sets a distinctive Spanish tone to the property. A satellite pool, sauna and gardens offer guests options to leisurely explore the Hunter’s countryside, which comes complete with kangaroos appearing at sunrise and sunset to welcome and farewell the day. Experiences of the Hunter Valley are essential to a stay at Tower Lodge. The team at Tower Lodge is a well-connected concierge and personally designs guided culinary or wine-tasting adventures for guests, bookings at local restaurants or for hot-air ballooning, art gallery tours and scenic drives. Guests can also partake in a wide range of experiences at Tower Lodge. Leisurely pursuits include archery, bike riding, reading by a roaring fireplace or lazing around the pool. Vineyard experiences in partnership with five local cellar doors and breweries are also available, including hosted tours, tastings direct from the barrel, and the discovery of rare vintages. The attentive, intuitive staff at Tower Lodge ensure that every guest’s stay is a pleasure. Their commitment to the little touches and genuine care for the guests’ experience is the perfect expression of relaxed Australian hospitality.
