We had both rooms booked and they are equally as well finished, with lovely little touches. The outlook into the vines was very tranquil. The breakfast was outstanding for a continental breakfast, there was so much food and a nice choice. The bathroom was very spacious and well appointed. The hosts were lovely and very welcoming, full of information about... More

The Saviignon suite is beautifully presented and stylish and the setting amongst the vines beautiful, private and peaceful. My hosts were welcoming and delightful. I definitely want to experience Milcrest Estate again...a 12 out of 10!

I stayed here in March and the weather was still very nice. The winery has an impressive selection of wines, many of which are award winning. I stayed in the Pinot Noir Suite. This was a good size with modern bathroom and a small kitchen area. The staff and Terry, the owner, were helpful and informative. I had an enjoyable... More

You really are surrounded by vines. This is a little bit out of the town but all the better for that. We stayed for three days and the hosts were attentive when we needed and we were also left to our own devices, a difficult balance to strike but well done. This is a modern and very well presented accommodation.... More

We stayed here for a long weekend - a Christmas gift from my partner - and it has to be one of the best small resorts/estates I've experienced. The peace and quiet amongst the vines, the beautifully finished and presented suite (opt for the Sauvignon Blanc suite, it's probably the best), the great continental breakfast, and sitting out in the...

My partner and I stayed at Milcrest for a long weekend break away. We couldn't have chosen better - the room was meticulously presented, spotlessly clean with a very comfortable bed and beautiful linens and furnishings. The view over the vineyard was picturesque, and it was very peaceful while not being very far from anywhere we wanted to explore around... More

My wife and I had planned on doing a day hike through Abel Tasman as our first activity in the South Island and I found a special online for the Milcrest Estate that we just couldn't pass up. The B&B is located on a working winery so not only are you surrounded by vineyards and picturesque mountains, you get a... More

We stayed at Milcrest for an overnight weekend break. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our room by Christine our host. She took the time to explain what was availablea and everything worked. The room was top quality and the bed super comfy. We really enjoyed an evening outdoor spa which was very relaxing under a big Nelson sky.... More

We found Milcrest an excellent place to stay, Terry and Chris (and Roger) are excellent hosts. We enjoyed a platter of food with their very good Sauvignon Blanc. Wine tasting was excellent with samples in appropriate full-size glasses adding to the experience, all wines are medal winning. We thought the Pinot Noir and the Syrah were outstanding. We really appreciated... More

We were fortunate to stay at Milcrest for our honeymoon in July. Unfortunately, we were hampered by travel delays and illness, but once we got to Milcrest all of that was forgotten! The room was very comfortable, and staff very approachable. The food and wine was superb. We had a platter in our room with a bottle of pinot noir... More
