We stayed with a group of friends at The Vines and used both the cottage and bed and breakfast accommodation. Our hosts were lovely and couldn't have been more welcoming. The breakfast's were superb, Mary is an awesome cook. Very central to great wineries and Hastings. Would highly recommend

Staying at The Vines was the closest we've felt to home in New Zealand. After being on the road for hours, Mary and Hamish greeted us with open arms, and a delicious home cooked meal. The vineyard was quiet, scenic and relaxing. We especially loved that there were sheep grazing right next to us as we walked through! It was... More

Great stay for us and another couple over the past weekend. The rooms were large and the facilities were well maintained. The lookout from the lounge both ways into the vines was amazing and we are really excited about coming back again in the summer.

Excellent location close to many wedding venues. Lovely home, great facilities and Mary made us feel right at home and went the extra mile to make us lunch. We enjoyed the tennis court and pool would be great in the summer. Thanks again!

My sister and I stayed in this lovely house in the vineyards and were very happy indeed. Mary and Hamish were so kind and considerate, our three nights there were a real pleasure. Mary gave us a tour of the vines and increased our knowledge by 100%!

I was recently in Napier attending a business conference and had the privilege of staying at The Vines, B&B. My accommodation overlooked a picturesque countryside view and the room was tastefully furnished. The room was very comfortable in every way. The outdoor tennis court and pool were true to the photographs advertised on the website and a great way to... More

this is the second time I have stayed at The Vines and I have to say it is the most memorable place to stay. Not only is it beautifully furnished with the most decadent quality furnishing but is topped by the hospitality of Mary and Hamish., The food that Mary serves surpasses what I have had served in the top...

It's not often that a host is so welcoming and keen to go "above and beyond". Also, a bonus! The accommodation itself was top notch, our bed was super comfortable, and dozens of wineries are on the doorstep.... also Mary can really cook!
