Warm and comfortable

Posted 07-Aug-2016
Pros: Modern well heated for this time of year.
Cons: Clarify what to do with key upon departure ?
Location: Close to Napier, Taradale and just about anything depending on weather.
Despite stormy cold weather the room was warm and very comfortable. Pleasant location amongst the vines.

Staying at the farmhouse was a highlight of our trip. It was lovely and the kids loved being right in the middle of the vineyards. The owners were especially helpful when we couldn't get the bbq started. They arrived in 5 minutes and sorted it all out. We loved it.

Pleasant farm house in the vineyards

Posted 21-Nov-2015 on Wotif
Pros: Lovely setting in the vineyards, gas heater, the painting in the hallway.
Cons: More books and some homely touches.
Location: It's not as far out of town as we'd imagined- in fact just round the corner from the shops etc. but the house overlooks the vines and cows
Our one night stay at the farmhouse was pleasant. It was raining so we lit the gas fire and spent the rainy afternoon reading among the vineyards which was lovely. Although the house was well fitted out with full kitchen etc, there was a slight feeling of stinginess- I always feel a little disappointed when doors are locked to other bedrooms, and there is no loo paper or towels in a second bathroom, no books about to read, no sign of homeliness. It’s a tiny thing but just didn't feel generous. Dinner at Mission Estate restaurant was pleasant but not memorable. The dark red walls and corner table felt a bit stuffy and didn’t enhance the food experience. The bar seemed to be more open and have a livelier vibe.

Better then you'll expect...

Posted 01-Oct-2015 on Hotels
Was better then I thought... Was expecting a room off the kitchen but had the whole house (except the 2 spare bedrooms) had a lovely catch up entertaining friends I haven't seen in over 20 years and able to use balcony in the arvo and fireplace at night... BLOODY BRILLANT Only downside is no electric blanket nut when you have a partner that helps..

This place was beoynd any expectations, worth every cent. Big house in the middle of vineyards and walking distance from restaurant and wine cellar. We had wonderful time here during our honeymoon!!

Cosy well appointed little cottage, delightfully situated in the vineyard at the Mission. All we expected and more.

Great Wine Country Escape!

Posted 09-Apr-2014
The Farmhouse at Mission Estate is a fantastic, luxury oasis with great beds and lots of space to enjoy the vineyard views and unwind in Wine Country. We stayed two nights and then came back for a third before heading back home to the United States. This reminded us of a Napa Valley get-away with a well-furnished small kitchen, beautiful decks, hot tub and lots of space for relaxing with family and friends.

Disorganised unpleasant staff

Posted 04-Dec-2013
Pros: Nice setting
Cons: Professionalism
Booked and paid for this place months in advance for our wedding night. I'd even been in email contact and arranged for key pickup if we were late. Got the key from staff on the day and left our luggage in the room. 2 curt messaged phone messages left during our wedding ceremony, first saying the booking was 'invalid'. They did find alternate accommodation and our baggage was moved. We drove around about midnight after our ceremony to find our new accommodation. We really wanted to stay at the Farmhouse. Not even an apology or any followup. Overall, unprofessional, disorganised, rude. Boasting a quality product or some reputation is no excuse for callousness, disregard and snobbery.
