We traveled throughout the south island for 19 days and stayed mainly in 5 star accommodation alot of which were really highly priced. This was the best of the lot and not very expensive either. We had two apartments next to one another. The apartments are so spacious and very child friendly. The best showers and water pressure of any accommodation I have ever stayed in. We loved that it was so quiet and felt like the middle of nowhere yet close enough to town for the local pizza to deliver which helped after a long day of driving. Set right amongst all the wineries it is the perfect place to base yourself from. Oh another thing that was great were the heavy curtains. Anybody travelling with children appreciates them especially when it doesn't get dark until really late in summer!

Room Tip: There are 4 units located furthest away (i think units 13-16?). These are the prime spot because the...

Very high standard accommodation in a beautiful vineyard setting. The rooms are actually apartment suites with good size living accommodation and large bathrooms. Food in the restaurant was generally good, although my wife was a little disappointed with her pork belly. It was a relief to find somewhere with free wireless broadband.

We arrived here having spent 7 nights in a motor home. We were really pleasantly surprised. The rooms were excellent and very large and the hotel was in a perfect location right in the middle of the vineyards. The rooms were very well equipped so eating in would not be a problem. We would definitely return here and recommend to others.

Stayed in September/October time so off season. Hotel was quiet. Rooms are a good size, clean and well equipped. Massive bathroom, yet no bath, merely a shower. (You'd understand if the space was challenged but for such a large room it seemed a bit crazy really, Maybe no one likes a bath in Marlborough.). Good pleasant stay that was spoilt a little by such a poor wi-fi signal, that even though I was in the nearest block to reception I had to frequently move myself and sit either outside of reception or on the sofa beside it. Not really easy to work, which I unfortunately needed to. Probably would look to stay elsewhere if the wi-fi issue wasn't sorted out, but I'm sure it would be by now.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms furthest from reception if you want to be truly amongst the vines.

Yes, it's expensive, but it was our New Years' gift to ourselves and we
thought it was worth it. The rooms are magnificent -- beautifully appointed
and exceptionally clean. So safe -- we enjoyed the private patio and the
Tui birds that sang for us. I can't imagine sleeping with the windows and
patio doors wide open anywhere else, but this felt as safe as can be. A
wonderful location for the wineries -- biking distance to many excellent
ones (though we drove). If you're used to finding a French Press coffee
pot, you find that and also quite beautiful crockery for self-catering. But
the nearby restaurants are worth a taste -- Hertzog's Bistro for dinner is
just across the road and Wither Hills is nearby. Both were excellent. (By
the way, Herzog will provide wine tastings outside of their posted hours,
if you want to squeeze one more in). Laundry facilities were very
convenient and inexpensive --they provide environmentally-friendly
detergent. One small point: the receptionist was not overly helpful
(telling us simply that things were "on the map" was not as helpful as we
had come to expect, but it is true, of course), but that is hardly a major
problem. Dinner there was one of our nicest on our trip.

Very pleased overall with this accommodation that we booked via the internet.
Rooms are modern and spacious and we enjoyed our relaxing stay (the free DVD library was a nice touch too). It was a handy location to the vineyards and the beautiful wairau river wines restaurant (wonderful for lunch, really busy!!).

The gourmet package 2 course was good and the restaurant offered a very high standard of food if your wanting to treat yourself. It was great for a romantic dinner as quiet and peaceful.

I would love to return again and can quite understand why it has received such good reviews!

Room Tip: Some of the rooms at the end of the property looked to have a view of the vineyard (our one didn'...

the location on the golden mile is perfect and all the fab restaurants and wineries are a stones throw. cloudy bay,allan scott, waiparau wines are literally less than a 5 min drive. its a gorgeous hotel and you can do star gazing at night sitting amongst the vineyards. perfect with kids as they have a great DVD collection and also they have great areas and lawns for kids to run around.
