We stayed in the Hillsfield House Courtyard Room for two nights during our three week tour of New Zealand. The property is gorgeous, the room is beautiful and cozy, and Jo and Steve are the nicest hosts! Plus wine tour bikes are right down the driveway and you have more than enough vineyards to visit within easy biking distance. The room and the setting almost make you want to just hang out in your room for a few days.....with a few bottles of wine. My favorite part was the little "treats" we would find when we came back to the room - chilled water refilled, afternoon carrot cake snack, bed turned down. And there isn't enough space to write about the AMAZING breakfasts brought to your room every morning (the croissants....). This is a great place to spend a few days resting and relaxing after you book a hectic vacation schedule (we know we all do it!). In addition to great vineyards, you are also surrounded by first rate restaurants in the area. Thanks, Jo and Steve, for your hospitality!
