It is located in the heart of the vineyards. Rooms are very spacious with lovely outdoor living and a BBQ. It was great for our work function as we had 5 rooms booked but there was plenty of room for all of us to congregate,BBQ and breakfast in one room. Very well equipped rooms and spotless presentation. The manager was... More

We stayed in Blenheim the night before and decided to have a 'wine change' for our last night. Perfect way to do it as we were doing a winery tour during the day and it made sense to keep the theme going! We dropped the car off at the Retreat, put our shopping in the fridge for dinner later on... More

Can't beat the location among reknown vineyards. Manager was extremely helpful & accommodating, helping us to arrange a baby cot at the last minute. Great recommendations on lunch & dinner, plus activities in the area - don't miss lunch at Wairau Cellar Doors next door and you don't have to worry about drinking and driving since the cellar doors are...

We have stayed in Blenheim several times and noted this spot on our last visit. 15 minutes outside of the CBD, but well worth the slightly longer drive. Stayed in Villa 12 and can find no fault with the accommodations. The kitchen was well equipped, the bed very comfortable and the baths spotless and thankfully free of the ubiquitous "water... More

Vintner's Retreat is strategically located with access to amazing wineries in the Marlborough region. The accommodation was a two story, two bedroom, two bath "villa". Great design, and features throughout the place. It overlooked a vineyard with an amazing view of the mountains behind the vineyard. See the attached photo.

Hello Kevin O Thank you for taking the time to review Vintners Retreat, and posting a picture! In case anyone is wondering, the room tip refers to either the Manors or the Three Bedroom Lodges that are placed right next to the vines and have wonderful views of the Richmond Ranges. Thanks again! Shulah George More

The quality of our accommodation was very high- we had a wonderful 2 storey, 2 bedroom unit. Everything was there- from beautiful kitchen appliances and utensils, Molton Brown bath products (a favourite of mine), a vase of fresh flowers. It's the little touches that go a long way. We only wish we'd had longer than one night!

Our cottage looked amazing, everything there, fully equipped kitchen with very cute dishwasher, very comfy bed, nice bathroom, beautiful fireplace. I just wished that someone would have heated up the cottage when we arrived! It took us at least 3 hours to get warm. The shower was good but due to the lack of a glass door the bathroom was...

Hello Robert W Thank you for your review, however I think you may have reviewed the wrong property - we have neither fires or pine trees here at Vintners Retreat. The place you did stay at does sound very nice, apart from the lack of initial warmth : ) Kind regards Shulah More

One of the most scenic places I ever stayed and I'm very well travelled. Our courtyard was facing the vineyards and we had a wonderful BBQ outdoor. Amazing! The villas are very spacious and well equipped. Would recommend to anyone!

Lovely self contained 2 bedroom unit, within walking distance of a number of wineries. Plenty of room and the shower had the best water pressure of any place I have ever stayed in! Helpful staff and close to other activities for those who are not into wine tasting.
