I booked a 2 bedroom Classic Lodge for a friend and I thinking we would each get our own room with a king sized bed. We had another friend join us last minute so I emailed the concierge asking if they could switch the king bed in one of the rooms to 2 single beds (on website they said all...

We've just stayed one night, however I believe it is a good place for families because the houses are really big and well equipped with kitchen and lining room and a huge balcony! And private garage... Nevertheless we were just a couple staying for 1 night! The house was a little bit cold just for us two! However I would...

Your own two-storey accommodation, with garage that also includes laundry facilities. Amazing views across the vineyards and extremely peaceful. Well-equipped kitchen, two bedrooms (in our accommodation - others may vary), large bathroom with spa bath. Very nicely furnished and well presented. We booked this through a travel agent, with no idea of what it was until we got here. If...

Vintner's Retreat was a highlight of our four weeks in NZ. We even tried to change our ferry reservations so we could stay one more day in this peaceful, relaxing, stunning haven. The units, self contained holiday homes, are spacious and superbly equipped. Our back patio was private with stunning views towards the Marlborough hills. Though we had pre-booked a...

What a fantastic area and location! This property is surrounded by vineyards and wineries and within walking/biking distance of many of them. The units were very spacious. Since there was just two of us we got the smallest one but it was way larger than most any hotel room with the convenience of a full bathroom, kitchen, dining table, living...

We really loved Vinter's Retreat and visited in June of 2016. It is in a perfect location to explore all the vineyards and within easy drive of some really wonderful restaurants. It was also very nice to have a washer dryer in the middle of our trip in New Zealand. The staff was very friendly and could not have been...

Vintners Retreat is in the heart of the Marlborough wine area. There are a couple of cellar doors that you could literally walk to including Giesen and Nautilus! The accommodation we stayed in was spacious and clean and included everything we needed. The lovely lady at the reception was so helpful when my son cut his forehead at 9pm one...

Spacious modern home with vineyard outlook and the hills of Marlborough in the distance. All the houses at Vintners Retreat are spaced apart from each other so there is a wonderful sense of quiet privacy.

Arranged as a work weekend for all colleagues to catch up and have fun, it was perfect. The location of the Retreat in respect of wineries is great, including the ability to hire bikes to tour around. This is a lovely place and peaceful.

“Not so much a room tip as the facilities are beautiful, but just a heads up, virtually nothing is open for dinner in the Marlborough region so stock up on ingredients to cook at "home" otherwise it's a bit of a drive into Blenheim to find places to eat. Lunches however are outstanding at the wineries!”
