Reviewed 5 September 2017

We accommodated our friends and family here over four nights, as we hosted our wedding at the Black Barn Winery. We wanted to showcase the best of Hawke's Bay to our family and friends and this venue delivered. With beautiful views of almost all of Hawke's Bay while feeling nestled within the vineyards, it was exactly what we were looking for.

We especially loved the open fire place and open planned lounge, dining and kitchen area. We were able to entertain guests while also having the opportunity to wind down and relax in front of the fire.

The complementary breakfast was greatly appreciated and the venue was hard to fault.

We stayed here last weekend with a group of friends to celebrate a couple of significant birthdays. The house is lovely and the location was beautiful, with stunning views across the vineyards to the sea. The environment was peaceful and relaxing, with the only noise from birds singing and sheep baaing. We had Haumoana House and Villa 1, fantastic accommodation for a large group. Would totally recommend.

We had a most relaxing 2 night stay in Villa 1. Beautiful view, even in winter! Wonderful open plan design that allows maximum sunlight into the house. The 3 portable heaters & fire place were more than enough to keep the place warm & cosy. The owners kindly provided fresh eggs, milk, jam, bread, yoghurt, fruit & a bottle of wine grown & made at the estate. It was very good wine by the way, available for purchase at the pool house if you wished to bring a bottle home. All amenities were quite luxurious, comfortable king size bed, high quality linen & big bath tub.

Hastings & Napier (Art Deco town) were within a 20min drive away with some good restaurant choices but since we had a fully functioning kitchen (dish washer too!) we ended up cooking ourselves. The produce in New Zealand is so fresh, we bought fish, lamb chops, chicken, veggies & popped them on the barbecue. With good food, wine, amazing view & wifi, we didn't really need to or want to leave the property!

We couldn't believe we were actually staying here, Millar Road was like a sanctuary in the middle of a hectic holiday, we could have stayed a week not just two nights. The villa was great, modern with understated luxury, views out to Hawkes Bay, situated in a vinyard. We had a welcome pack with bread, coffee, bacon, eggs, yoghurt and homemade strawberry jam with a bottle of wonderful wine from the vinyard! It was heaven, weather wasn't great but we didn't care, lit yhe lag fire and relaxed.
Napier was good to visist and Havelock North, lots of cycling and paths close by.

It is a bit remote but well worth the drive

Room Tip: They're all good!
