The town of Cromwell is not that interesting, but if you have value for your money, this is a great place. Truly deluxe, with wine tastings each night, a great hot tub/spa, and very relaxing atmosphere. 30-40 minutes to Wanaka and the mountains.

This is a gorgeous place to stay. The view over the vineyards to the mountains is beautiful, the owners are really friendly, the wine is good, and you’re close to amazing places to eat. The room was lovely, well fitted out with everything you might need. Breakfast was a really nice touch, with local fruit juices and preserves. There are other wineries, and the rest of Central just a short walk or drive away. I can’t speak highly enough of River Rock Estate. Such a lovely weekend.
