We have stayed at this accommodation previously, and decided to return simply because it is spacious, comfortable, and in a nice setting. I have read some of the reviews about the management’s interpersonal style. There is no doubt that the man operating the venue can be somewhat rough around the edges, but to his credit he appears to take as...

We had a great stay here recently with friends. The villa was very comfortable, clean and spacious. It is located walking distance to some great wineries but you really need a car to explore the beautiful surrounding area. Scenery is spectacular. Would definitely go back. We went on the coldest weekend of the year and the only comment I would...

Martin H, Manager at Vintners Retreat, responded to this review

Hello Mosnz Thank you for taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor and I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Our bathrooms and kitchens are tiled and so I agree, they can be cold on the feet. We often put complimentary slippers in the Villas during the coldest months and I'm sorry this was not done in your case....

Although we have stayed at Vintners Retreat before, it never seems to disappoint. The accommodations are of the highest standard, the surrounds are quiet, and the views are magnificent. Martin and his staff are always there to help in any way whatsoever. I cannot recommend Vintners highly enough, and I know we will certainly be back, as will our friends...

We were very, very happy with the accommodation. The apartment was spacious and extremely comfortable. A fully equipped kitchen made food preparation easy. The staff were helpful and efficient. We had a beautiful apartment overlooking the countryside. Very relaxing. Will definitely stay here again.

The villa itself was perfect, absolutely huge and great value for money, albeit our hire car was too tall to fit in the garage, but this wasn't a problem as parking spaces were available too. The whole site was very clean, and our villa was spotless. The bathroom was perfect, and the bedrooms were very well equipped for a comfortable...

We were blown away by our recent stay at Vintners Retreat. If you are in the Marlborough region visiting wineries I cannot recommend this place more. It is fully self contained, so spacious and modern so you can still prepare meals at home while being just a short stroll/bike ride/drive away from some major vineyards.

The Vintners Retreat is in the middle of the Marlborough wine region so is a very good place to stay if wine is your interest. The accommodation is superb. We had a two bedroom, semi detached house with it's own garage, patio area and gas barbecue. Inside it was extremely well furnished with everything you could possibly want. There were...

We rented a two bedroom Manor Villa for a three night stay and were delighted with the space inside the villa, the excellent kitchen area and fantastic views of the Richmond Hills. The Vitners Retreat is in the heart of Marlborough wine country and a short drive from the famous wineries. The city of Blenheim is closeby with a good...

This was my third stay at Vintners over the past 7 years.I always have been completely happy with the rooms, staff, and location. This time I had friends with me who were first timers to Vintners. They were blown away. Life amongst the vines is great. Highly recommended.

Had been searching for somewhere lovely to stay in Blenheim for a weekend getaway for ages. Scoured Air Bnb, Booking.com, Tripadvisor, somehow this place finally came onto my radar a few weeks out. The place was fabulous. The villa was possibly a little big for the three of us (we took a room each) but it was fantastic. Every small...
