As previous reviewers have stated, this is a great location and the cottages are beautifully appointed. Situated amongst the vines with views of Te Mata this should have been an exceptional ovenight stay. The staff were very friendly and the 'Terroir' restaurant was definitely worth a visit BUT..... unfortunately, two thing let it down:
Firstly, this is the only 'luxury' NZ accommodation in which we have stayed, that does not provide a welcoming complimentary bottle/half bottle of wine. Being a vineyard this is a bit ironic and rather short sited as a complimentary bottle of wine would have no doubt have encouraged us to purchase another bottle or two!
Secondly, the breakfast was truly appalling. It consisted of day old bread which was already in our room on arrival, one choice of cereal (muesli) and a pot of stewed fruit. There was no fruit juice, no yoghurt and no jam, honey or other preserves. Plain toast or stale bread and butter is not quite what we envisaged from any establishment such of this and rather spoilt an otherwise very pleasant stay.
