Accomodation for your stay

Life is stressful. So creating a healthy, comfortable and safe environment during your stay is important to us. The Hermitage Centre offers a unique ambience and homestead accommodation, which cannot be found in a hospital facility. Our clients are our guests.
Each client is made welcome by our warm and hospitable staff who have experience with recovery.

We offer private rooms in a large home-style residential retreat with 24-hour professional care. We aim to create a relaxing ambience and quality care without the hospital atmosphere. You will have close personal interaction with our day staff throughout the day who design and deliver a withdrawal program to suit your needs. Night staff remain on duty while you sleep to make sure you remain rested, safe and comfortable.
