Luxury stand alone ensuite rooms with King size bed, heat pump, tea/coffee making facilities, fridge, microwave, TV/DVD, Free view TV.
Excellent facilities and a great continental breakfast tray complete with fresh grapes, chocolate, sultana bread and plain bread, choice of jams and cereals waiting for us. Hard to better this. I would recommend River Rock if you are looking for comfortable, warm, sparkling clean self contained studio accommodation for one or two in Cromwell.
The owners are lovely people. However we wouldn't stay here again, the locality (Cromwell) is a bit sad. We stayed 3 nights - the accommodation is nice to look at, however the bed is like a slab of concrete - very uncomfortable. Nice breakfast provisions were left out for the first morning, but deteriorated for the next 2 mornings. There was dishwashing detergent & tea towels left out but the only place to wash dishes was the bathroom sink which is a shame.
We stayed at the vineyard for one night, the chalet was well appointed and within walking distance of Cromwell on a good night. We had a stormy night so we bought supplies in the village and hunkered down through a wet and windy night. The heat pump, DVD and comfy bed provided a pleasant and snug evening.
We enjoyed a well presented tray of Continental breakfast before heading off on our travels. Cosy in winter and would be a gorgeous place to stay on a summers evening.
This was an excellent place to stay - we so enjoyed the vineyard surroundings and the decor inside was very attractive, tasteful and comfortable. The continental breakfast was delicious. Thanks for a lovely restful stay Graeme. We have already suggested River Rock to several friends !!!
The property is lovely, the cottage is comfortable and has everything we needed. The bed was really comfy and we were warm and cosy whatever the weather. The continental breakfast provided was great with care going into selecting things so you got something different each day. The host was lovely and we felt comfortable from the start. The view is ridiculously gorgeous and can't fail to make you feel relaxed and lucky to be there. Alas the cat, Rabbit, didn't make an appearance during our stay .. oh well, I guess we'll just have to go back again to meet him?
Great spot, great hosts, great scenery and plenty of things to do. Really enjoyed the laid back atmosphere. Every one should experience a break at River Rock Estate. We will certainly be going back.
Our second time at this accommodation - that says it all. It was even better this time around. We stayed four nights and were treated to a complimentary bottle of Vineyard wine as well as wine tasting at the cellar. Graeme and Jan were excellent hosts and the accommodation was excellent, with a varied breakfast each morning. Cromwell is an ideal location for day trips to Wanaka and Queenstown and to experience the sights in the local area too. We look forward to a third visit in the future.
