      Fabulous stay”

      Fantastic lodge on the River Rock Estate. The lodge is very well presented by the friendly owners. The bar in the main building was a great place to chat with the owners and their neighbours into the early hours. Continental breakfast is comprehensive and available in the lodge. Overall, a lovely stay.

      Perfect honeymoon getaway”

      Being amongst vineyards, continental breakfast- many choices, had its own homely style unlike hotels

      We had a great stay, we enjoyed wine tasting with the owner and learnt a lot about how they make their wine. I loved that the room was amongst the vineyards that they use for wine making. It felt so homely and relaxing. Just a short walk to town made for a great location.

      Situated in a vineyard, lovely views to the mountains,private and comfortable.

      Our stay at River Rock Estate was relaxing and comfortable. With views of the vineyard and mountains in the near distance, it was too easy just to sit and chat and eat and drink in a sunny spot on the patio! It was an ideal spot, not far from Wanaka and Queenstown and had plenty of nice drives and surrounds. Local fruit for sale was nice and close to a shopping area for convenience. A great base to explore the surrounds.

      Comfortable large room, beautiful surroundings, friednly staff.

      Lovely little B&B in a small winery. Bisnes luxurious room. Free wifi, but that was a bit unreliable. The winery produces great tasty wines, and there were some provided in the room. We drank one Bottle diring our stay and they did not charge anything for that. Breakfast was delivered in the kitchenette each day.

      Rooms

      It's a great little out of the way bed and breakfast in Cromwell. The rooms were well designed and well furnished. The location is great if you are into wine with several vineyards within walking distance. Graeme and Jan are helpful and friendly and also run a nice restaurant/bar nearby. You are also a short drive from the lake, white water rafting, biking, etc. There are beautiful views of the mountains from your front porch.
