Situated at the base of the Richmond Ranges, on the alluvial Waimea plains, we get the pleasure of observing and admiring the annual growth cycle of our vines. Once harvested, we let the winemaker work their magic. During your stay with us feel free to wander amongst the vines, most likely with our dog Maybe by your side, and learn about at what stage of the season we are at. A wine list is available for your convenience in your suite with a selection of wines from Neudorf Estate, Kahurangi Wines, and Moutere Hills Vineyard.
We were positively surprised to find this lovely place as we had stayed in about 10 motels, hotels and b&b's on the South Island during our two-week tour and were quite disappointed with many of them. The room we stayed in was very large and tastefully furnished with a small kitchenette, two leather sofas, writing desk and a double bed, tv and wifi. Bathroom was very large and the shower blissfully powerful. Bathroom amenities were of good quality. The quietness of the place and the beautiful surroundings, with early morning bird songs, is really restful. Breakfast, which IS included in the price - and the price of the room being really reasonable - was sumptuous and so delicious
The room overlooks a beautiful vineyard and this can not be a more calm and relaxing environment. Perfect setting to be away from the city life and close enough to visit Abel Tasman for hiking and beaches. Topping of the great setting is breakfast served in room and ample wine. Strongly recommend if you are looking to relax.
We stayed for two nights in the Pinot Noir room. It was absolutely magnificent, spotlessly clean and finished with top quality fixtures and fittings. The breakfast was served in our room and consisted of mainly home made food. The views were of the vineyard and the stars at night were incredible. It is set quite a way from the main roads and all you hear is silence, it was amazing perfect stay, well worth the price
