What our customers say

It was a typically crisp Autumn evening so we started with a glass of bubbles and delicious canapés beside the huge outdoor fire. We could just as easily have settled into the comfy sofas inside the chapel, now transformed into a cosy space for pre-dinner drinks, wine tastings, and browsing a range of beautiful NZ-made gifts. This was not our first visit to The Marlborough Lodge, but the first since the change of guard the kitchen. The menu changes daily and is a showcase of local produce with a touch of European flair. Portions are generous and our plates were bare when they returned to the kitchen. That says it all. The Lodge effortlessly combines elegance with comfort and under Karen's stewardship the staff are efficient and friendly and knowledgeable too. We locals are lucky to have a place of this calibre on our doorstep, visitors who stay here are just lucky.

Marlborough Lodge was the last luxury lodge we stayed in after 3 weeks (9 lodges) in the South Island. All experiences have been lovely but this place is just gorgeous. The staff were all so delightful, the food great and the building and grounds just stunning.

Tastefuly furnished with a Nespresso machine, pods, and gorgeous fresh creamery milk. Great shower with lovely toiletries provided...and great 4G WiFi. Don't stay here if you want Cook...but why would you when you've got some of the best chefs and wine the area has at Hans Herzog Bistro, Restaurant and vineyard across the road.

Our entire stay was absolutely amazing. Our room was spacious and very comfortable with beautiful views of the vineyards. This property is exceptional in every way, the gardens breathtakingly beautiful. Breakfast and dinner were included as were drinks and canapés before dinner outside . Karen and staff were exceptional, nothing was too much trouble. The Lodge has bikes and we went for a pleasurable ride through the vineyards . A truly fabulous and memorable stay.
