My girlfriend and I stayed here when arriving to New Zealand. It was such a delight. Trudy and Barry were wonderful hosts to say the least. They greeted us with the most delicious fudge, a great sav. blanc, cherries and the cutest sign welcoming us. When we walked to our room, we marveled in the amazing view of the vineyards... More

Trudy and Barry are such tremendous hosts. It was like staying with family you enjoy, clean, great goodies and breakfast. They even gave great guidance for our local trips and next Australian journey! Thank you, thank you!

Trudy and Barry are the most hospitable hosts and the facilities are excellent. We stayed for 2 days and wished it was longer. They have very good organic Sauvignon blanc and Pinot noir wines which we sampled and ended up buying. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

Sadly we only had one night here, far to short a time! Beautiful accommodation with the most welcoming owners who catered for every need, and it really is the attention to detail that counts, and it shows. A very warm welcome with lovely goodies in the room. This little gem is perfectly situated for visiting the vineyards in Marlborough and... More

We stayed for just the one night which was definitely not long enough. The family were welcoming, the views and facilities fantastic and the wine and platter to due for. All in all a thoroughly recommended place not to miss!

We had unforgettable stay here.it's in a very quiet place and surrounding by vineyard. We were so impressive of sunrise and the milky sky in the night. The owner is a couple who are very nice and elegant. We really enjoy stay there.

Our first visit to Straw Lodge seven years ago had been truly magical. Our return was equally as memorable! Our accommodation was even better than we remembered. Peaceful, quiet well-insulated rooms with simply astounding views down through the vineyards with the range of hills in the background. Trudy, Barry and family are the perfect hosts with Trudy especially always available... More

What a place. Perfect cottage, tranquil, peaceful and idyllic. With the vines surrounding you, you feel encapsulated in your own viniculture paradise. We enjoyed a wonderful BBQ surrounded by fresh fruit and washed down with some of the local produce. Trudy and Barry were wonderful and welcoming- even when I flooded the tumble dryer. A must stay. There were four... More

With pleasure we're looking back at our stay at the Straw Lodge. Great hospitality, unique lodge, very tasty breakfast and a stunning view, made it one of our best memories of our New Zealand holiday. We really recommend this accommodation, but stay at least 2 nights because 1 night is definitely too short. Some day we hope to come back... More

We were visiting Marlborough for the vineyards and wineries. Straw Lodge is a small, intimate property located in the middle of a beautiful vineyard. Location is a close 5-10 minute drive to all major wineries. Our room was cozy yet efficiently designed. The host, Trudy, is wonderful and very charming.
