A lovely place to stay in an amazing setting. The private cottage was a fantastic size for our family of four but could easily fit a much larger family. We arrived late on a cold evening and was greeted by stoked fire and warm beds. We are looking forward to returning in summer and taking advantage of there large pool.

We stayed with a group of friends at The Vines and used both the cottage and bed and breakfast accommodation. Our hosts were lovely and couldn't have been more welcoming. The breakfast's were superb, Mary is an awesome cook. Very central to great wineries and Hastings. Would highly recommend

Staying at The Vines was the closest we've felt to home in New Zealand. After being on the road for hours, Mary and Hamish greeted us with open arms, and a delicious home cooked meal.

Great stay for us and another couple over the past weekend. The rooms were large and the facilities were well maintained. The lookout from the lounge both ways into the vines was amazing and we are really excited about coming back again in the summer.

My sister and I stayed in this lovely house in the vineyards and were very happy indeed. Mary and Hamish were so kind and considerate, our three nights there were a real pleasure. Mary gave us a tour of the vines and increased our knowledge by 100%!
