My wife and I spent two nights in the winemakers cottage. The setting is perfect, nestled in the vineyard. The beds were very comfortable and the unit was clean and tidy. The staff was helpful and we wish we could have extended but it was booked. Jacquie gave us a tour of a most impressive wine making operation and time... More

I want to be selfish and secretive and not share what a fabulous 2-night stay we had at the Craggy Range Vineyards Cottages. Maybe you shouldn't stay at one of the 3 2-bedroom or the 1 Honeymoon cottage because they are surround by a vineyard that does not produce grapes for wines. But if you can overlook that, read on....

Beautiful modern vineyard setting. A few well equipped small cabins/lodges clad in black corrugated metalwork. Cellar Masters Cottage has 2 identical ensuite double berooms. Showers no baths but powerful and with nice toiletries, fluffy towels and crisp white robes. A lounge/dining/kitchen area. Large TV in lounge ( but we couldn't get tv in bedroom to work) and wood burning stove... More

Recently stayed for 3 days with friends - we had 3 cottages. Two were 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom with the third being 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom. We were met by Jaqui who quickly and efficiently checked us in and then changed one of our planned dinners to in her words - a better restaurant - she was right - ask... More

Although we will celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary next year, we managed to score the Honeymoon Cottage! A really great one huge bedroom with an even bigger bathroom together with an adequate kitchen and cosy lounge room. Wood stove for romantic atmosphere and central heating throughout. We were with a group and booked out all the cottages and last night... More

We stayed here for two nights but I so wish it was longer. We had the honeymoon cottage and it was beautiful. The moment I walked into the bathroom I was blown away. Spectacular! It is set amongst the vines with picturesque views of Te Mata Peak set behind. We had the degustation menu on one of the nights, the... More

Highlight of our trip to New Zealand. Such an amazing Villa, amongst the vineyards. Staff were friendly and approachable. Kitchen was well set up to cook your own meal. We had lunch at the restaurant which was delicious, but we enjoyed cooking amongst the amazing scenery. The honeymoon villa has an amazing bathroom. It may seem expensive at first, but... More

Our third visit and it won't be our last. The cottages are the perfect place to stay on your wedding night, to run away to for the weekend or to base yourself in while you discover the spectacular Hawkes Bay. The 2 bedroom cottages side by side are perfect for families or couples traveling with each other, the fresh bread,... More

This was our second stay in the Honeymoon Cottage at Craggy Range and it is a wonderful, relaxing place to stay. The cottages are private and have indoor wood-burning fires and outdoor dining on your own terrace. In spring, the view of huge expanses of lawn, rows of vines with leaves beginning to unfurl, wisterias budding over the pergola and... More

We stayed for two nights, and loved the set up. The cottages are set in a display vineyard, but it feels like the real thing. The degustation at Terroir was amazing - food, wine, service and ambience. Well worth the NZ$185 a head. Small whinge - the cottage we stayed in had 2 fridges, but no freezer - how odd!
