The Old Glenmark Vicarage is simply stunning! Set in beautiful gardens and vineyards, the Old Vicarage is a stunning B&B that is elegant, peaceful and overflowing with old world charm. The rooms are large, bright and very well presented. Sitting here now looking out over the Autumn gardens I honestly have to admit I'm instantly relaxed and needing to remember... More

It was our last night in NZ and we were between Waipara and Christchurch. This great place didn't disappoint from the extremely comfortable bed through to the small touches of heated towels, great breakfast and huge clawed bath (we were in the rimu room). Damian and his family were welcoming hosts and have done beautiful work restoring this grand old... More

We were going to UB40 concert at Waipara Hills winery and the Old Glenmark Vicarage were the only one with a room still available. I am so glad that we stayed the night there. The accomodation is situated in a lovely environment, the home is beautiful and and so was our room. Comfortable bed, clean room/bathroom and a lovely breakfast... More

Because i had an early flight i asked for an early checkin so we could hit the trail (on borrowed bikes from the vicarage i might add) that was not... More

We were looking for a romantic getaway halfway between Christchurch airport and Kaikoura and boy did we find it. We stayed in the barn, a self contained, two bedroom house complete with hammocks and private spa pool. Very friendly hosts had the wood burner lit and ready, supplied us with a fantastic breakfast and showed us where to head out... More

A delightful historic home, beautifully restored to former glory. The main house accommodation was excellent - attractive, well proportioned, comfortable and well appointed. The owner was very welcoming and we enjoyed a tasting of some of his excellent wines. The surroundings are peaceful and form part of a local wine trail. It is the ideal base to head to after...

I was looking for a B&B that was near ChristChurch (airport access) yet give me a bit of flavor for the country side and taste some wine. The Glenmark was fantastic- the inn keepers were friendly and helpful. The garden room I was in, was clean, quiet and had a country feel - just perfect. Loved their estate Pinot! Loved... More

The Old Glemnark Vicarage had previously been described to us as the smallest winery in New Zealand. The wines have attractive names based on the history of the vicarage, and they're very tasty. Our delightful room occupied a sunny corner overlooking the garden. The charming bathroom had a clawfoot tub. We felt very pampered during our stay.
