We had three relaxing days with another couple at Milcrest. The owner Terry was very welcoming and the vineyard is set in a beautiful part of Hope just outside of Richmond. The rooms were lovely and very roomy. We also enjoyed the outdoor hot tub and the breakfast was delightful.

We had a very nice 2 night stay at Milcrest Estate in the Sauvignon suite. Very spacious suite with lovely furniture and a great bathroom. Lovely views across the vineyard. Chris was a great host - arranging a lovely platter, breakfast and wine tasting (very enjoyable wines). Roger the lab was very friendly too, coming along to check us out.... More

Milcrest estate was a wonderful getaway, with a beautiful setting amongst the vines, great breakfasts & really helpful hosts. We loved that we could just stroll down to the winery, have a glass or 4 of excellent wine, a delicious platter & then roll back to our room. We definitely recommend this place

A very special place to stay in a winery setting. Everything you could possibly want with scenery, sun, luxurious room and top quality fittings. Wine, breakfast and a divine platter made it even better. One night wasn't nearly long enough!

Great place to stay in sunny Nelson. My wife and I were there to celebrate our 2nd Wedding anniversary. Although we are not much into Wines, Milcrest had us get away with 2 bottles of Pinot :) Friendly hosts and prompt service. Would Definitely go again when we are in nelson next.

A great experience at the vineyard! We only stayed a night, but we enjoyed our evening run around the quiet area, the morning breakfast as well as the warm hospitality offered by the host. Highly recommended!

Piont Noir Room was excellent. The outlook over the vines to the mountains is great. The house and attached guest rooms are near new and the furnishings etc are all premium. Milcrest is more a premium B&B than a motel; some of its entries in directories call it a motel. (It would be a motel if there were cooking facilities... More

My husband and I were delighted with our suite which was at the opposite end of our host's modern home which gave us plenty of privacy. It had a roomy separate bathroom and adequate kitchen facilities/lounge area/king size bed in one large & tastefully decorated Pinot Noir space with outlooks on 3 sides. The main outlook led to a private... More

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
