“Ideal for a relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

This is an ideal location for a relaxing holiday. The surrounding is quiet and peaceful. I am a very light sleeper but I slept like a log. The room is warm, bright and spacious. The beds are comfortable and you get to choose your preferred pillow types. The bathroom is huge. They have the most powerful shower you can imagine, it's a joy to have an aqua massage every day. The kitchenette is perfect for making a cup of tea at your own leisure. I did have the privilege of picking home-grown plums, it is great fun. I didn’t try out the spa though but suspect it would be quite lovely to do that under moonlight. I also have problems with the GPS navigation initially but if you follow road signs to Mapua, the GPS will then sort itself out.

We got to test-drive Pine Hill Lodge before it officially opened for business and we were very glad we did. The location is great, just a short drive from Nelson and an ideal stopping-off point before heading further south. We loved the vineyard ambiance of peace and quiet and can highly recommend a walk around the vines past the lake to whet your appetite for whatever meal is coming.

Hosts Paul and Jeanette are very welcoming and the rooms and facilities are top-notch. We were lucky enough to sample some apricots from the small orchard area near the house. Delicious! But you would have to visit during summer to have this opportunity.

One highlight available all year though is being able to sample wine made from the grapes grown at the vineyard. Some of the wines have already won awards, and from the taste it is easy to see why.

Pine Hill Lodge is in a very handy location to where we headed next - the Rainbow Valley road through to Molesworth Station and Hanmer Springs, open to 4WD vehicles only.

The only slight hiccup we had was navigating to Pine Hill Lodge the first time, particularly when your GPS gets confused!
