We had a wonderful time at the Straw Lodge! Trudy and Barry were the most amazing hosts and thought of everything including Barry taking his vintage Morris out of storage to drive us to their favorite restaurant (my wife's first car many years ago was a Morris so it was very nostalgic). Our room was very well appointed and the...

Our hosts Trudy and Brian provided such a warm welcome on our arrival. A complimentary bottle of their wine, and homemade treats accompanied a myriad of suggestions for ways to further enjoy our time in the Marlborough region. Our room, separate from their house, overlooked the vineyards and had its own garden courtyard. The queen room was well appointed to...

Flaky croissants. Bacon crisp, eggs cooked perfectly. Wonderful view from the room and the breakfast room was vineyards with mountain range in the background. Amenities include tasty bottle...

We stayed for only one night - and wished we'd had more nights here. This is a seriously special place! I don't think the photos really do it justice. It's beautiful being right there on the vineyard, and the comfortable little retreat has it's own private garden area and view. But it was the hosts that were truly outstanding (Trudy...

Very nice host and warmest welcome for us. The property is right at the edge of vineyard and from the front of your room you can see and touch the vines. As we're on honeymoon, Trudy gave us the most special memorable part of the trip. Thank you so much and we've enjoy our stay. Wish we could stay longer.

Location was great, rooms were spacious and clean. They helped us find spots for dinner and the breakfasts were amazing. Homemade croissants with a lovely view of the vineyard. There were even bikes available to cruise around on.

Trudy and Barry were wonderful hosts, sharing information about the area and even driving us to dinner two nights. Because we were due to get to Straw Lodge fairly...

The atmosphere of this lodge is just delightful. I truly recognized the accommodation is created by the hosts and their personality this time. Trudy is very thoughtful and kind to guests, and her breakfast was very tasty! The restaurant they introduced was wonderful ,too. The memory of the lodge in vineyards is unforgettable. We really want to visit again. Highly...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Luxury Bed & Breakfast in a unique vineyard setting Far from the madding crowds, in the heart of Marlborough's wine district, you will find Straw Lodge Vineyard, and our very different straw-bale constructed homestead and Vineyard Suites - a very special place where rest, relaxation and rejuvenation awaits the discerning traveller. Nestled amongst organic Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir vines Visible from each suite are glorious mountain ranges, behind which the sun sets in beautiful displays of rich colours. Before you retire to your cosy king size bed, bathe in our warm spa pool at night, and gaze up at the clear skies filled with a galaxy of stars. Each private suite has a lounge and en-suite bathroom. Full sumptuous breakfast created from local produce Rise at your leisure to a treat of a continental and/or cooked breakfast, created from home grown or locally produced foods of your choice. Then set out on our pedal bikes, take your own vehicle, or book a tour through the surrounding wineries. Internet use is free of charge, as are our golf clubs, DVDs, and a bottle of wine from our vineyard! ... more   less
