This is a lovely place but we had a small room with a double not queen bed with a bathroom some distance away through the kitchen. We enjoyed the pool and ambiance but check the cost of meals and wine before you commit.

Mary's hospitality towards us and our 6 month old baby was generous and comprehensive; we were looked after splendidly in terms of comfort, availability of amenities and wonderful cooking. Would recommend for those planning a luxury Hawkes Bay food and wine weekend.

We chose to stay at The Vines purely on location as we have friends nearby, and couldn't have made a better selection! Mary went out of her way to accommodate our family, especially our 6 month old, providing cot/change table/high chair to lighten our car load. Coming from the city, we loved the view of the hills, the vines, the... More

The vines is a great location, has great food and the welcome is very friendly. A great place to relax and unwind. Set amongst some lovely vineyards, we will be visiting again towards the end of the year, highly recommend it.
