What our customers say

How anybody could not give this 5 stars is beyond me! From the initial greeting with a lovely sauvignon ( Giesen) to the great food and gorgeous room upstairs with a view over the recently renovated chapel everything was wonderful. Go for a walk round the gardens as they are very pretty and lots of fruit to pick. The predinner drinks are free flowing and sitting out by the fire even on warm night was a perfect way to start the evening. We took the Lodge bikes and did a wine tour on the bikes - was flat and taking it steady was a lovely way to see the area and taste lots of the wine. Couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Marlborough. Thank you to Karren and all her team

Everything was great : the room ( super clean and very well appointed), the food ( excellent breakfast and superb dinner) , the staff ( Karen, the General Manager is a super friendly and professional person that managed very well her excellent team), the property in general ( a beautiful lodge perfectly sitting in a wonderful garden).... We normally stay at 5 stars hotel around the globe but this one is one of the few we will remember . Thank you !!

A former convent on 16 beautifully landscaped acres updated to the highest standard. Our stay was was one of the highlights of our visit to New Zealand. Foremost in our experience was the warm attention of Manager Karen and Owner Angela which carried through the entire staff. The building is charming, the gardens beautiful.
