Nelson was our first stop on our 10 day road trip to the South Island and Pine Hill Lodge doesn't disappoint. It's situated in a vineyard (what more can you ask for) and the hosts Jeannette and Paul Chik are so gracious and attentive. Who doesn't want to wake up in a vineyard? Their 2 beautiful dogs are an added...

Beautiful and absolute quiet location in the middle of the vineyards, awesome breakfasts (pancakes, French toast, ...), wonderful hosts and two friendly dogs. It was fun to pick different lettuce varieties from the vegetable garden (a pity the fruit wasn't ready to pick). We hope to return one day.

I stayed with a friend at Pine HIll Lodge in December '16 and it couldn't have been lovelier! We moved out of our hotel in Nelson in search of a place that would be closer to Kaiteriteri beach and wine tasting. Pine Hill Lodge far exceeded our expectations. The setting is beautiful, the rooms are clean and modern and very...

With views that ooze romance, this working vineyard for our honeymoon , which looks out to sea, was a treat made even sweeter with surprise cherries from a local orchard, home baking and luxuriant breakfasts swiftly devoured. We watched stars pop out from our jacuzzi observatory with the darkening of night. This was the perfect base to explore the region...
