The amenities and view are there but one would expect more for one's money in a "5 star" accommodation than was offered. There was a pool, yes, but it was not clean---full of leaves and slimy at the bottom. There was a hot tub, but the water looked suspect. The room was not serviced on a daily basis---we stayed in...

We found this at short notice and could not recommend it highly enough. The location on a hill surrounded by vineyards is exceptional. The room was clean and ours had superb views. The pool, although a little cold was a great bonus along with the outdoor hot tub. The host Leon was very friendly and accommodated any simple requests. Meeting... More

Top marks to Leon and the Mountain View Villa! Wonderful welcome, host and location. The views are stunning, the pool is freezing but invigorating before jumping in the hot-tub.... A proper home from home. Given less than half a chance, I shall definitely return!

However, as this villa was so amazing we stayed here for an extra two nights! It is based within the wineries of Marlborough and is a 30 min drive to picton - should you wish to explore... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights to explore the wine region. Great place to stay. Amazing views and amenities- pool, spa and steam room. It is a bonus that this is a small hotel with only 5 guest rooms (and no children) The host Leon goes the extra mile even offering rides into town for those of... More

My husband and I stayed at Mountain View Villa on the first day we arrived on the South Island. We loved it so much, we came back again for one last visit before we headed home. The views, as promised, are spectacular - but that is only the beginning. The rooms are beautifully and tastefully appointed. The shared "common areas"... More

This B&B was such a nice surprise while I was traveling through the Marlborough wine country. It's set on top of a hill with beautiful views of Wither hills, the mountains and even a bit of ocean. The owner and staff were highly accommodating.

You won't get a more beautiful view in Blenheim! Perfect for visiting the wineries in the Blenheim/Renwick region. The accommodation is excellent and everything was kept clean. Staff are nice and helpful. The best B&B I have ever stayed at.

I had a wonderful experience last mounth in New Zealand with my family, we spent couple of days in a luxury B&B on Malborough region, the place was so beautiful , so cosy and confortable that we extended our stay from 1 to 3 days. I couldn't stop at looking outside the wonderful panorama and the staff was so friendly... More
