"I had never stayed at a winery and wow - just wow - this was an incredible stay. From the moment we drove up the driveway we had to stop and take photos - the entrance door was so beautiful and we could not get far in without standing and looking in awe! The service was incredible, and complimentary wine and cheese beside the pool on a blue sky day was unreal. The breakfast that was cooked to order every morning was 10/10 and the staff were phenomenal. This was the best stay on our three week trip in NZ."

"Stoneridge Estate is in a class of its own. Gorgeous location, wonderful staff, amazing facility and owners that know how to be welcoming, courteous and attentive. I highly recommend it and hope to return one day in the future."

"We recently had our wedding in Stoneridge Chapel and our experience there went way beyond our expectation. Both the Chapel and the Estate are so stunning and fabulous, and we had the best time there due to the wonderful staff who helped us to coordinate and arrange our ceremony and also the dinner reception in the Lodge Dining Room. We can only ask you to visit Stoneridge yourself to experience the magic the Estate has to offer."

"We happened upon Stoneridge Estate on our travels as a family and could not imagine better customer service - it turned out to be a fabulous stay for our family of four. The team there shuffled rooms to give us a family room (a two-bedroom suite), and we enjoyed the personal cooked breakfasts to order, the gorgeous pool, and complimentary cheese and wine in the evening. We had an exquisite five-course private chef meal prepared for New Year's Eve, and could not have been happier with the stay."

"We were lucky enough to stay in the Retreat - amazing views over Lake Hayes from the top of the Estate were available from every very spacious and luxurious room. The hosts were so welcoming and nothing was a trouble. Definitely a place to treat yourself!"

"The team at Stoneridge made our elopement wedding so easy, and incredibly memorable. All involved were super lovely and we could not have hoped for a nicer bunch to spend our special day with. Flowers, hair &make-up and photos were all gorgeous. Dinner was amazing. The location is stunning. I would highly recommend Stoneridge Estate for a stress-free wedding."

"The Estate is breathtakingly beautiful, that’s a fact. But what is more remarkable is the team that made our wedding so much more memorable and simply perfect. Suzanne and Emily, your help from the beginning was exceptional. Our dear celebrant Glennys, we can’t thank you enough for going out of your way to make our day extra special... Miles our photographer, you are awesome and made us feel comfortable with the camera. The hair and make-up was everything we hoped for. Lastly, we were blown away with the lovely flowers! Thank you for a wonderful experience guys! It is something we will look back on with so much love and gratitude in our hearts"

"We hosted a small group of fourteen for a 'Trust the Chef' five-course degustation in the Lodge at Stoneridge after our heli-elopement. The evening absolutely blew us away, and we could not be more grateful for the experience. Upon arrival we were greeted with drinks and welcomed by the most spectacular sunset over Lake Hayes. Not even exaggerating, the view was so amazing, it didn’t even look real! The food was absolutely delicious! The service was flawless and nothing was too much trouble. We cannot thank them enough."
