This was our second time visiting Black Barn Retreats (Riverside lodge 4) and it didn't disappoint! These homes are beautiful and are perfect for families! We had an absolutely amazing time here and can't wait to get back again! Love love love!!

Black barn is a wonderful location with fantastic views. The food and wine tasting plate as well as the boar terrine was excellent. The standard menu items, such as the fish was dry, the beef had insipid vegetables and the desserts were a good idea but poorly executed. The meals looked great but the combination of flavours seemed a bit... More

Came in for lunch and it was amazing. Our waitress Sophie did a really great job. the food was great and would of liked a reminder to order sides. my highlights would be the cheese board, it was awesome. Diffidently will return when i'm back in the region.

We recently stayed in Poplars 2 for 3 nights and didn't want to leave! This place is absolutely stunning. Everything from the peaceful location & phenomenal views across the Tuki Tuki Valley to the property itself with modern contemporary furnishings; this place is truly unreal. Admittedly, we can be quite picky about properties that we stay in, however at Poplars... More

We recently stayed at Poplars 1 with our friends. This property had everything we wanted. It is in a stunning location and the property is spotlessly clean and of fixtures and fitting are high quality. All three bedrooms have good sized en suites and there is plenty of space to lose each other. This is a house for entertaining in.... More

Our family spent only 2 nights at Riverside Lodge but it felt like 4! Rural setting not far from town and the many wineries. The house itself is fully equipped with everything you could imagine. The breakfast provisions were plentiful and was enough for our 2 days. The house does need a little maintenance but overall was a fantastic country... More

We were recommended to Black Barn as a place of serenity and luxury in the heart of the wine region of Hawks Bay in New Zealand and can only say....... " you must stay here" if you get the chance. The accommodation aspect is pure luxury with everything you could ask for and more. There are a number of different... More

On a sunny Saturday morning we visited Black barn for the Saturday market . A small group of artisan stalls were assembled and we enjoyed looking round and tasting the selection on offer . Upon visiting the winery we found it to be peaceful with a lovely courtyard setting . The kitchen "shop" was similar to others we have visited... More

Beautiful spot with a fantastic restaurant. Wish there had been rooms available but we were not aware of this lovely spot until late in the game on our trip to NZ. The staff was wonderful and food is outstanding. This is a "don't miss " spot in the Hawke's Bay area.

I tried all of the wines and bought 3 bottles, loved them all and prices were affordable. The staff were informative and said I could buy online which is good to know as they don't sell in supermarkets. Going back to Napier next month and this was my favourite winery so I will go back. I loved the rose &... More
