Quirky décor is not to all tastes but the scenery is a hundred and fifty percent. Sorry to say that the food we had here was Ma and Pa style.Well organised but he kitchen isn't putting in the effort required.

Hot tub overlooking the mountains bliss! Hugely romantic, private dining with sincerely the best meal we've ever had in our lives (and my husband as an ex-chef has high standards) and oh my, what a wonderful breakfast feast! We stayed in the cottage for one night and were truly spoiled and pampered in every way. Memories to cherish a lifetime... More

We stayed in the Cottage for three nights on our honeymoon. The vineyard is in a stunningly picturesque location, and everything in the estate is finished to a very high standard, with loads of privacy if you're after some peace and quiet. The owners and staff were absolutely falling over to be helpful during our stay, and were always on... More

We recently had our wedding here. All our guests loved the venue, the view, the cosy fire, the mulled wine and great staff. Wayne and Suzanne, were very helpful and available during the wedding planning. Thanks Wayne, Suzanne and the team

I was part of a large group that booked Stoneridge for a gala dinner. I cannot argue about the beauty of the surrounds or the quality of the accommodation, but the meal that they provided for our group was the most pathetic effort that I have endured. The amateur attempt at hors d’oeuvres was initially laughable because it was something... More

We are extremely disappointed and saddened that the Reviewer did not enjoy their dining experience at a gala dinner of 110 delegates hosted at Stoneridge last week. We are pleased they enjoyed their entrée. I was in the kitchen when the main meal was returned, and the comments that were passed from the Reviewer to the Head Chef via the... More

Go on a little journey out of this world and enjoy every moment. Stoneridge is magical, its views, the structures,the story of how Da'Vella created it from recycled churches and the sensory experience of fabulous food, the wines,the service. Be prepared to get treated!!!

My wife and I recently held our wedding ceremony and reception at Stoneridge Estate. There are so many positive comments to make about the location, staff and facilities but in summary it was truly spectacular.

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in early February and had a brilliant stay. Location was perfect with a view over Lake Hayes and mountains in behind it. The rooms were very nice and spacious and our room had a lap pool out the front - perfect for those 27 degree days. Our host Wayne was friendly... More
