Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The chalet was very clean and cosy with air con and ceiling fan, it was 29 when we were there.
Breakfast basket had a good selection and there was milk, butter, ham, cheese and fruit juice in the fridge. Plenty of tea and coffee.
There is a major road nearby and we found the noise quite intrusive overnight. The bed and pillows wee a bit hard for me but that’s personal choice.
The shower was excellent .
We found the host rather disinterested and skipped the wine tasting.
We were also shocked by a $12.65 surcharge when we presented our debit card for payment. We were told it was because we had used a contactless credit card, (it was debit , and we had not been charged a surcharge anywhere else in the previous two weeks). Shoulders were shrugged and we departed. Rather ruined our stay.

We have visited this place many times for wine tastings and always wanted to stay here so I finally did. Very modern unit, country chic but actually new and functional not worn out like many ‘country’ estates tend to be, comfortable bed, excellent shower pressure, room tariff includes juices & a very hearty continental breakfast basket, we couldn’t finish even half of it, the room tariff also includes a wine tasting in the evening, there is no restaurant onsite so for dinner we went to Stoaker Room some 5 minutes drive, as it was a special occasion we booked the spa house, I was loving it but my partner was too hot after 30 minutes so an hour of the 90 minute soak experience was wasted, the spa tariff includes a house bottle of wine that you choose when making your booking, 2x mainland cheese and cracker snack packs and a few Lindor chocolate balls, lovely views from the tasting room.

Again ended up buying a couple of bottles, lovely hostess, nice grounds, ooh and great grape jam to be purchased in store which paired beautifully with cheese later that night! The wine labels are cool and sassy, anatomy art for the win! We will be back!

Its nice to go somewhere where everything is up to standard, you get what you pay for.

Wow!! We went to the outdoor hot tub which was fab. We were there at night in a private out tub looking up to stars, drinking wine and water and eating cheese and crackers and chocolates. The surroundings are very well done with screens, plants and rocks, just lovely
Well done to the owners

What a fantastic place to stay, accomodation was great, comfy bed,deck area looking out on to the vineyard and mountains. Breakfast provided with plenty of choice and items varied each day. Really enjoyed the pool house, to relax after a day of biking. Hosts very helpful and friendly and provide a free wine and port tasting. Only a five minute walk to town, so you can do the wine tasting then go for dinner.
Highly recommend staying, will definitely return

Stopped here one night but wish we could have stayed longer.
We had planned to arrive for the welcome drink at 5:30pm but our plans changed due to the weather and we did not arrive until 10pm. We had contacted the owners to warn them during the day.
The owners, Graeme and Jan Marie were such lovely friendly, welcoming hosts. When we arrived they invited us up to the bar to have drinks with themselves and their neighbours. We sat chatting until the early hours!!! Their wine was very good!
Our room was beautifully finished and spacious. Bed very comfortable and room spotless. Bathroom and kitchen area great. They had left all the breakfast things ready for us on the side and in the fridge. Absolutely lovely!Lovely view of the vineyard and table and chairs with BBQ outside.
There was also a hot tub to use at an extra cost.
Will certainly re-visit on our return to New Zealand!

We had a wonderful 3 day stay. Beautiful accommodation, comfy bed, awesome shower, it had everything you could want. The breakfast was more than a basic continental breakfast, with something different each day. The hosts really made it for us, with a daily happy hour, which was an opportunity to meet other travelers, share stories & have a laugh. The wine tasting was very much to our taste, although I'm not a savvy drinker, I did take to the "Two Together" which is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc & Pinot Gris.

We were really disappointed.
arrived and werent made to feel welcome at all, in fact the opposite. Paid $65 a night to park in a gravel carpark area - no showers, no toilet between 7.30pm and 12 noon) , no dumpstation, no laundry. There are two spots and the camper next to us is a parked a couple of metres next to us. there is no privacy - even a hedge or barrier between the parking spots would be nice. I dont recommend this at all. In fact, we are departing a night early as its not a pleasant experience and quite simply a rip off.

Excellent little villa, patio right on the vineyard made for lovely pre-dinner nibbles and wine. As a bonus we managed to chat with Jan whilst wandering round the vines and learned quite a bit about grape growing in Cromwell. The room furnishings are superb and everything is to a really high standard - very comfy and well supplied with everything you m ight need. The wine tasting was also excellent and most informative. Many thanks to our wonderful hosts, Graeme and Jan-Marie.

What a treat after a busy day. Perfect for any post Cromwell adventure, day on the Lake Dunstan Trail or local wine tasting expedition. Unwind and relax whilst enjoying the wine and cheese nibbles. Marvel at the clear night sky and city night lights in your own private hot soaking spa to top off another perfect day.

Recently had 3 nights here and it was very relaxing having a glass of wine in the middle of the vineyard!! The villa was compact but so comfortable the shower and bed so comfy and lovely views to wake up to. Plenty of places to visit or if you are a keen cyclist plenty of routes from the vineyard, if wine is your thing plenty of vineyards in the area but don’t forget to get back for the 5o’clock tasting with Graeme and Jan great conversation and refreshments.
Certainly stay again if we come back to this area.
