Trudy and Barry were wonderful hosts. We were made to feel like long lost friends . Straw lodge is a small organic winery and my husband asked if he could help with the netting of the grapes. We had use of some bikes and took a ride thru the vineyards. The breakfasts were great and we even used their barbecue... More

A beautiful location with the nicest possible hosts. We were greeted on arrival by a welcoming message and Trudy who then spent time with us showing us all the amenities and explaining the area to us and giving us a complimentary bottle of wine. The accommodation was excellent and the use of the spa whilst looking at the stars was... More

Absolutely a beautiful place to be. Warmest hospitality from the host. Superb breakfast + homemade ruba juice & cakes - best in the world. At night time the spa is just stunning, milky way and star clusters above your head makes you feel you are far away from busy life. We will definitely visit again.

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!
