We only stayed one night so did not get to make the most of this great accommodation. The town house was spacious, well appointed and very clean. We really appreciated the little details such as real coffee for the plunger and a choice of both blue and green milk. The woman at reception was very friendly gave great advice about...

A perfect location for a family break near Blenheim. Attention to detail, exquisite views and comfortable accomodation. We'll return for sure and next time for longer. Thank you for a wonderful stay that ensured we had a fantastic holiday.

We travelled as two couples and chose one of the Manors villas. The primary reason that we chose Vintners Retreat was the location - on Rapaura Road, so ideally situated for enjoying Marlborough's famous wine. On previous visits to the region we had stayed in Blenheim, but found Vintner's Retreat to be far more convenient. The villa was very spacious,...

Perfect! it was great to have all the amenities of home while on a vacation: kitchen, living room, washer & dryer, garages, jacuzzi, and pool. Dining recommendations were great too! We will certainly return to this property when return to NZ.

My wife and I visited New Zealand and pick this place for vineyard stay. Restaurants nearby. Services of concierge and manager are excellent. The staff are welcoming and you will enjoy warm ambience. I will come come back and stay in this hotel when I visit Christ church.

We stayed in April 2016, for one night only, and wished that we could have stayed for several days. The setting is unrivalled, with a selection of the properties opening out on to vinescape (NB the vines belong to another property, so cannot be accessed from the hotel). Great thought has gone into fitting out the units, and they are...

The lodges are top quality with absolutely everything you could need. Sky, Wifi, Laundry facilities, deck area, Spa Bath, lovely big beds, etc.. But it was the location that really makes it. Walk out onto Raparua Road and within two minutes you have 3 top class wineries where you can sample wines and eat excellent meals and then walk home!...

This retreat is situated right in the Marlborough area and close to many good vineyards and restaurants (although you will need a car). We stayed in villa accommodation which was clean, spacious and comfortable. Good for couples or a family. There is no restaurant on site so it is self catering although you can buy a continental type breakfast from...

We have stayed here a number of times. It is always very clean. We love the villas, they are spacious and quiet. We self cater and there are adequate things necessary for this. We also think the grounds are very appealing. Nice to be set in such a large area. Martin is very helpful. We would have no hesitation in...

“The villas to furthermost from the road have lovely views over the vineyards and more privacy.”

“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!”
