What our customers say

Thank you for a lovely stay! Wonderful setting, staff & food!

Sarah & Ross

The newly opened Marlborough Lodge is a serious treat. Peter and staff are absolutely attuned to guests' needs and desires, and the personal attention is heartfelt. The lodge is stunning...we stayed in a second floor suite that was beautiful with incredible views out over the surrounding vineyard. They have some brand new bikes which are perfect for the many gorgeous back roads right out the door.

Guest - Concord, New Hampshire

Beautiful spot in Blenheim. Absolutely loved our stay at The Marlborough Lodge, we enjoyed the Kingfisher room which had beautiful windows from the buildings church history, was hugely spacious and had a stunning outlook onto the surrounding grounds. Amazing food and the best omelette I've ever had for breakfast! This place is very special and we look forward to returning in the years to come! Big thank you to the lovely staff!
