This was our 3rd time here but 1st staying overnight in a cottage , such a difference it makes being able to indulge in great food and wonderful wines. Friendly and prompt service , wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
My partner and I stayed for our eight year anniversary and absolutely loved it. Such a beautiful and peaceful place. The cottages have everything you could ask for e.g. BBQ on the deck, electric fry pan, kitchen utensils, chopping boards, they even provide things like oil, salt and pepper. The breakfast provisions were fantastic, they even provided gluten free bread, cereal and bacon (we requested GF at time of booking). The gluten free provisions were clearly labelled and kept seperate to avoid cross contamination. The view from the deck, and everywhere else on the property, is spectacular. The staff are super friendly, welcoming and helpful. Oh my, the gluten free lamb pizza was super delicious (ordered in advance as they prep the gluten free ones first before touching other pizzas). The wine is delicious and loved the chocolate lava cake (not gluten free, partner has coeliacs not me. He had the GF pear and cinnamon cake). Phone reception was basically non-existent in the cottages but was slightly better in other areas of the property. It was actually really nice not being able to use our phones and enjoying the serenity. We took a book each which I enjoyed reading on the deck, although I did more looking at the surroundings than reading. If you're wanting to head in to Gisborne for dinner (the cellar door at the winery is open for lunch only) and don't want to drive, let's face it there will be too much wine for driving, I suggest booking a taxi in advance. If you don't have any phone reception at all you can ask staff to call and book in advance for you. We tried to call a taxi from outside the cellar door (a bit of reception there) when we needed it and couldn't get through to the local company and had 2 uber drivers cancel on us so we were late for our dinner reservation. Alternatively, you could buy some groceries in the morning then cook up a lovely meal with the BBQ or electric fry pan for dinner. Can't recommend this place more.…
I very much enjoyed our Golf-weekend package. The ecological cabins are lovely and well-maintained with a comfortable bed and have a beautiful view over the vineyards. Great service from the staff, sending Would come again.
Beautiful setting for casual dining. Welcoming staff greet you. Service was great. Shared plater was amazing with plenty of bread to go with dips, cheeses and meats. Pizzas good & deserts very tasty. Good wine list. Would definitely come back
A beautiful spot, well appointed cottages with great views, a fantastic place to unwind. Staff were supper friendly and helpful. Good food and of course fine wine. We have no reservation in recommending Gisborne Peak.
