We stayed 3 nights in the Rose Cottage overlooking the stunning Te Mata Peak. The cottage was really well equipped for 2 couples (ensuites in both rooms, a kitchen fully equipped for cooking, a generous continental breakfast spread replenished daily, a complimentary bottle of wine for booking directly, a wonderful wine tasting etc...). The cottage has been beautifully laid out and no corners cut on aspects like bedding, flatware, toiletries etc... The real highlight of staying here was spending time gazing at Te Mata Peak from the room, and enjoying a glass of wine set amongst the vines on the beautifully presented grounds. We checked out very relaxed and dreaming of when we'll be back.
From the moment you arrive, you are treated in every way to a very highest standard. Every staff member from the wine tasting to the restaurant to reception to those working in the grounds were welcoming, polite and friendly. The cottage was lovely. It was very hot so it was hard not having a pool but the air con was great. The beds and pillows were wonderfully comfortable. We will definitely stay there again
We had the most amazing one night stay at Craggy range celebrating our anniversary! It was a beautiful set up, felt so homely, and the food and wine was amazing! I would highly recommend this vineyard stay ❤️
Disappointing for cottages at $695 p/n x 4 nights to have no pool. Only the Lodge has a pool. Wasn't clear when booking made. Instead, we drove half an hour to local superb beaches - Waimarama and Ocean Beach during 30+C summer days. Havelock North township quaint and really good to visit for light lunch or dinners. You need a car if you stay at this beautiful venue. 10/10 for new Villa, local breakfast provisions and daily baked bread, friendly helpful staff, grounds and setting: restaurant superb. Wines lovely too. Minor point to note - no after hours desk from 6pm. But Restaurant & tasting room teams improvised and conveyed messages for next day admin team.
Amazing place to stay.... v well equipped comfortable cottage. Loved fact properties weren’t too close to each other like in lots of similar set ups around NZ and so relaxing to be nestled among the vines. Sufficient breakfast and pristine clean cottage. Friendly helpful staff made our stay very memorable... great location to explore Hawkes bay... will definitely be back.. thank you for wonderful 3 days. Gráinne & Séamus
