We stayed here at the end of a 3 day trip in Abel Tasman. We were a bit shell shocked to be back in the real world, but this place provided us with the perfect transition. The room was lovely, shiny new with a really stunning bathroom. The views from the room out onto the chardonnay grape vines and out... More

My husband and I loved every minute of our time at Pine Hill. After long days driving and hiking it was a welcome respite. The vineyard is simply breathtaking. Its a little piece of heaven on earth that comes with FABULOUS pancakes in the morning! I wish we had more time to linger. The rooms were new, meticulously clean and... More

Thank you very much for the wonderful review. We are thrilled to be the best place you stayed in all New Zealand. What an honour! And the compliment on the pancakes....our 'Head Chef' is over the moon reading all these compliments on his pancakes. Hope to see you again when you come back to the region for another holiday.

A little slice of heaven in the midst of a beautiful vineyard. The owners were so helpful and took care of every detail. The scenery was amazing. Our room was great with our own little patio. A wonderful stay and what peacefulness...

Hands down one of the best establishments I’ve ever stayed at, Paul and Jeanette have set the bar very high. First off, it’s a beautiful property with a gorgeous rooms and thoughtful design. There is nothing like the morning or evening light coming in through sheer curtains. The owners Paul and Jeanette, were above accommodating even before we got there... More

There is a serene almost zen like atmosphere to this BnB, from the architecture of the building it self to the calm of the vineyard and elegant rooms. Paul and Jeanette are warm and welcoming and extremely helpful, even making dinner reservations for us. Jeanette found us a high end dinner reservation late on Valentine's Day. Breakfast is brought to... More

Thank you so much to Jeanette and Paul (and apologies for this late review!) for our stay on 24 January. We had a peaceful and relaxing stay at Pine Hill Lodge.

We stayed at Pine Hill Lodge for just a few nights and were very impressed by the beautiful vineyard setting and modern construction. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful too. However, we stayed during January and it was very hot, and there was no air conditioning, so the room got unbearably warm in the morning after sunrise. Also, the... More

Thank you very much for the nice review. Since we are really new in running a B&B, we want to make sure that we do well in whatever we do and that is why we have kept the breakfast simple with freshly baked items like croissants, scones and pancakes for the continental breakfast. We will look into providing a more... More

We stayed three nights in January during our trip around New Zealand and we would have loved to stay longer. Jeanette and Paul were great hosts even helping out with a bottle of wine since we arrived late and forgot to buy some. The breakfast is really good (One word: Pancakes!) and we enjoyed it on our private patio. The... More
