Jan and Graham were the perfect hosts. Friendly and inviting and went out of their way to help me. I accidentally booked the wrong nights and were surprised when I turned up, as to be expected. They luckily had a room available and booked it for me. They are very accommodating and really good to have a yarn with at...

Such character! This place oozes with boutique vineyard charm! We stayed here on our wedding night and couldn't have picked a better place. It was quiet and private, and when we woke in the morning and went outside it was as pretty as a picture! Cottage gardens filled with lavender, thyme, and rosemary edge the entire accommodation. Just stunning, highly...

Although Cromwell wasn't our first choice of destination we enjoyed our stay here. After a hectic three weeks it was nice to slow things down. We would have stayed in Wanaka, but what with Chinese New year and the Triathlon we had no chance. The room was very comfortable. Settee, comfortable bed, kitchen table and chairs. TV, DVD player and...

Stayed at River Rock Estate over the Christmas break, upon arrival we were confused as to where to go to check-in. Other guests pointed us in the right direction, we met Graham and were shown to our room/cabin. The room was clean, tidy, well laid out, free internet, and serviced daily. Extensive continental breakfast that varied each day, also snacks...

Another good stay in this lovely cottage. All the comforts of home, plus a bit of luxury. As last time, our cottage was cozy, warm and suited us well. While compact, the cottage contains all one needs for a quiet couple’s escape to wine country. What the cottage lacks in living space, it more than makes up for with its...

This was a delightful spot in the middle of a vineyard with a generously-sized room, bathroom, and kitchen area. Breakfast was left on the kitchen counter and in the refrigerator for us to enjoy at our leisure. The bathroom and the living area are well appointed with everything you could need. The town of Cromwell is just across the highway...

Adjoining a vineyard owned by our hosts, this standalone unit has nearly everything you would want: minifridge, hair dryer, dishes, utensils, TV, blow dryer, umbrella, iron, ironing board, great wi-fi with cable connection, and microwave. It would be suitable for a longer stay. The continental breakfast was on the counter and in the fridge when we arrived. We had a...

The property is lovely, the cottage is comfortable and has everything we needed. The bed was really comfy and we were warm and cosy whatever the weather.
