Was looking to escape Christchurch for a night over Easter - managed to secure a booking at French Farm Winery. Was aware that in the past this facility was a well respected winery and restaurant, so didn't know what to expect.
Upon arrival learnt that this venue is now a boutique hotel (only four rooms) and wedding venue facility.
Shown to our rooms - well appointed with a traditional French theme. We were with another couple and they had the larger room (which they paid more for) neither room had views.
After settling in down to a pleasant courtyard for a wine and nibbles - the cold eventually forced us down to the bar. A pleasant hour flowed chatting to the new owners about their plans for this facility.
Breakfast comes with the room, guests are provided all ingredients for a nice continental breakfast.
Overall a pleasant stay in a facility which new owners have great plans for.More
