"We have stayed at Stoneridge a few times, and 3 weeks ago we stayed at Stonerige for a week and had our wedding ceremony and reception there. We were lucky to have such stunning weather to compliment the beautiful venue. Suzanne, Wayne, Giselle and staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We and our guests loved the venue, the food and service. We would definitely recommend Stoneridge Estate to anyone who is interested in staying there or having their wedding there."

"I stayed here two nights and absolutely loved it. There is no reception area but the Lodge door magically opens when you drive up and there is someone there to greet you and show you to your room. I arrived late afternoon and was welcomed with a glass of wine and very generous cheese plate. I had the 5 course degustation meal which was heaven - I wasn't even that hungry but ended up finishing every single dish because it was so delicious. My room looked directly over Lake Hayes and the vineyards . A generous breakfast menu. I liked the discreteness of the staff - there when you needed them but otherwise they left you alone. I prepaid so it was also nice to not have to carry my wallet around or have a big bill to settle at check out. I thoroughly recommend Stoneridge if you're looking for a relaxing luxurious place and enjoy fine dining. will definitely be going back."

"We were on our Honeymoon and stayed a few nights at the Stoneridge Estate, the grounds were beautiful. The hostess greeted us with wine and cheese platter in our room that over looked Lake Hayes & Arrowtown. It was a scenic drive and we lucked out on the weather & had a sunny day to go wine tasting and drive into Queenstown. We would love to go back someday."

"I would just like to thank you again for our wonderful stay with you all. Undoubtedly you have a fabulous venue, pristine and away from the bustle of Queenstown, but it was your staff that made our holiday so memorable. This all started out as a surprise birthday ‘gift’ for Marion and although I had to let her in on my plans before we left Perth, I am pleased to say you all provided us with a number of your own surprises to mark the occasion. The wine and card on arrival, regular afternoon platters, everyone wishing Marion a happy birthday on the 27th, the private dinner, your attention to detail and the informal and very relaxed atmosphere of Stoneridge……….have all left a lasting impression with us."

"We had the absolute pleasure to stay at Stoneridge in August 2017. It was such a romantic retreat. The property is stunning and you can tell the years of dedication and effort that has gone into creating such a magical place. Apart from the property Wayne the owner and his team, were the perfect balance of attentive but not intrusive, there if you needed them but equally respectful of our need to escape from our busy lives. We also run a 7 day a week 365 day a year business, so know the effort that goes in behind the scenes to make your stay a once in a life-time event. Thank you Wayne and team for all your carefully thought out touches and your warm hospitality. We hope one day we maybe back to create more memories but in the interim we will sing your praises and share our "secret" you deserve much success :) With huge gratitude and appreciation"

"We were lucky enough to stay in the cottage at Stoneridge Estate following our wedding in August 2017. What can I say - it was just perfect! As soon as we arrived we were greeted by the lovely Giselle and offered a cheese platter with wine (which was delicious!). All of the staff were amazing and provided by far the best service we've ever had. It was the little things which made the experience truly memorable - like going out quickly to grab dinner and coming back to find our bed turned down and chocolates left on our pillows. Not to mention the delicious breakfast cooked for us every morning! The cottage itself was absolutely beautiful, I particularly loved the huge spa bath with an amazing view of Lake Hayes. So luxurious. Our wedding was organised through Heli Weddings NZ and we were able to have some of our photos taken at Stoneridge Estate, which look beautiful and really added to the whole experience. After our wedding we also treated ourselves to Stoneridge's 5 course Trust the Chef dinner - all I can say is WOW! We got to sit in a beautiful private dining room with a view and the food was so yummy. Definitely one of the best meals we've ever had. If anyone is looking for wedding/honeymoon accommodation or even just a luxurious getaway, I highly recommend Stoneridge Estate - worth every dollar. We will definitely be returning!"
