We stayed 4 nights in this lovely B&B, outside of Blenheim. Paul & Angela, the owners, are charming people who truly want your stay to be great. They were attentive without being intrusive and we enjoyed our chats with them. Lots of good recommendations. They even took us out to see their grape vines and orchards! They also drove us... More

Staying at Riverstone Lodge was one of the highlights of my time in Nee Zealand. My mom and I stayed here for the 2014 Marlborough Wine and Food Festival. We stayed in the Aubergine room and it had beautiful views of the vineyard. I would highly recommend Riverstone Lodge to anyone staying in Blenheim. It's off the beaten track, but... More

My husband & I enjoyed our 3 nights with John & Raewyn immensely! Their property is beautiful and they are very welcoming. John arranged for us to visit with several local winemakers, which we really appreciated. He also took us on an amazing 4 wheel drive adventure up into the mountains. Our room was private, immaculate, and had a beautiful... More

As many have said before, Raewyn and John are excellent hosts and worked really hard to make our stay as happy as possible. We had drinks with our hosts at night and also ate delicious breakfasts in their house in the morning - the breakfasts were a real highlight and some of the best we have enjoyed anywhere (gorgeous homemade...

My partner and I finished our two week travels in New Zealand with 3 nights at Riverstone Lodge and we couldn't have had a more enjoyable stay. Location is ideal - far enough from the city to relax, but close enough to visit the many wineries in the region. Raewyn and John are wonderful hosts who made us feel very... More
