the B&B is located in a manor builded in early '900 from english nobles. The building is very peculiar, well renewed and the fornitures are in english style. It is a pleasure stay in feeling in the past!! The owners, Alex and Peter (and their sweet dogs) are very very friendly: they led us to use their bicycles for a... More

We stayed at the Ugbrooke for one night on our road trip across New Zealand and had a wonderful time. Peter and Alex are fantastic hosts that welcome you into their beautiful historical home. I suggest eating dinner at the manor at least one night. Alex cooked us some scrumptious mussels in a coconut sauce followed by venison and potatoes.... More

My wife and I stayed at Ugbrooke for 3 nights and absolutely loved the experience. The estate is beautiful with original architecture tucked into the hills of blenheim. Peter was an amazing host and treated us more like friends rather than customers. The estate is very close to the beautiful coastline and several local vineyards. The meals were great and... More

I must thank my husband for including Ugbrooke in our New Zealand trip. What a beautiful surprise for the both of us. The stunning scenery piqued our interest as we made our way closer to Ugbrooke. When we arrived at beautiful Ugbrooke Estate, we knew then that we were in for a treat. We were warmly greeted by Peter and... More

A highlight of our trip to New Zealand. After traveling all day and arriving quite late at Ugbrooke, Alex and Peter greeted us, were immediately helpful getting us settled and providing a refreshing glass of an excellent local Sauvignon Blanc. We changed our plans to have dinner there the next night, very glad we did as Alex's cooking is tremendous.... More

We held a team day at Ugbrooke Estate and it was superb. Peter and Alex were amazing hosts making the whole day run smoothly! Great place to take your team away from the office - beautiful location and functional facility - and the food provided for morning tea and lunch was delicious!!

This is a review that is long overdue. Me and my husband visited Ugbrooke for 3 nights over last New year's eve as a part of our 2 week drive vacation around the South Islands. We had a lovely time. The estate, about 20 min drive from Blenheim, turned out to be a perfect place for us to unwind after... More
