The owners, Matt and Naomi, are excellent hosts, always very nice and welcoming. The house is spotless clean and comfortable. The amazing breakfast with homemade bread and jams is the perfect way to start the day. I would strongly recommend Rev's Retreat to anyone going to Marlborough for fun or work. In addition to all this, Matt and Naomi are... More

I've now stayed here four times on business trips and will come back again. Matt and Naomi are great hosts - the breakfast is awesome and the coffee excellent. They were very helpful with my extra requests on this stay. The bed was super comfortable as always and the bedroom easy to heat with the heat pump. The location is... More

This lovely B and B is owned and run by a young couple who have thoroughly researched the needs of their customers, are eager to please, genuinely welcoming and perceptive. The location is ideal for catching the Interislander. Our room was very comfortable and quiet.

We stayed at Rev's Retreat while in town for a wedding at the neighbouring Wither Hills winery. Matt and Naomi were very friendly and accomodating hosts, who made us feel very welcome. Small touches, like an airport pickup, restaurant recommendations, and terrific coffee, make this a top notch B&B and one I would recommend if you are visiting Marlborough.

This retreat reminded me of how great kiwi hospitality can be. Just what I needed a true retreat. The breakfast was 5 star with fresh home made coffee. It had a warm feel to it and the owners truly know the concept of 5 star kiwi hospitality. 'Paul Skerten'

We can't recommend this gem highly enough. Matt and naomi were fantastic hosts and were very helpful during our stay. Outstanding room and breakfast at a very reasonable price. If you are taking the interislander to the south island, and you have time, its best you avoid Picton completely as we found it very expensive in comparison to blenheim. Great... More

We had a wonderful weekend staying at the Rev's Retreat which is in a quiet peaceful location handy to the centre of Blenheim and surrounding vineyards. Matt and Naomi, our wonderful hosts, looked after us and made us feel very welcome. The Rev's Retreat is like a home away from home and we came away feeling very relaxed. Will we... More

Matt and Naomi are wonderful hosts. By the time you leave, even if there overnight, you will feel as if you have got to know them and feel at home at the retreat. The bbq dinner Matt made was amazing with the mussels, venison sausages, lamb, and salads. Fantastic stay. Comfortable beds. Great hospitality. Doesn't get much better!
