My wiife and I stayed here for 3 days on our month-long honeymoon to NZ. It was the highlight of our trip. The setting of the Estate high up on a hill over looking Lake Hayes was simply stunning. The service from both Giselle and Emily was fantastic, personal and attentive. We met the owner, who gave us a lift to collect our rental car. She was so welcoming and offered many suggestions of things to do in the area.
We stayed in the Coronet Suite which had a balcony that opened onto the stunning view of Lake Hayes and the surrounding mountains. I would highly recommend this room.
The room also had a raised window seat, allowing us the opportunity to sit and take in the beautiful views each day.
The estate also provides a pool and outdoor hot tub which was a lovely touch.
On our final day we strolled the grounds, the quaint chapel and gardens to the winery, where we enjoyed a beautiful cheeseboard & accompanied wines.
I could not recommend this property more highly.
It’s located 20 mins outside the thronged streets of Queenstown (which we loved) but a car would be advisable as a result, as a taxi would be upwards of $40 one way.
