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.

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.

My dad and I stayed here for 4 nights, actually it was so good, we extended! From the rooms, to breakfast and dinner, to the grounds and staff, the lodge exceeds even the most distinguished expectations! I have stayed in the best hotels around the world, but The Marlborough Lodge is without hesitation one of those places where you will always remember every detail because they exceeded in every category! Can't wait to return!

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.
