She gave us lots of good advice on places to visit which enabled us to fit in it many good experiences in a relatively short stay. We particularly enjoyed our visit to the Omaka Aviation Centre, various vineyards and... More

Our room looked out upon a pretty garden of all sorts of flowing plants and, beyond them, rows and rows of vines. It fit my mental image of a wine estate perfectly. Leslie was a wonderful hostess with many helpful suggestions for wineries and meals.

We have stayed at Blue Ridge at least 5 separate times. We keep returning because it is a blissful place. Brian and Leslie grow beautiful grapes, their guest rooms are among the vines. The B and B is located among theNZ great vineyards and very near Marlborough's best restaurants. The breakfasts are brilliant, all homegrown foods deliciously prepared. The rooms... More
