This well located B&B offers a very comfortable, clean, relaxed, friendly retreat. The handy location to the township is within walking distance. An ideal location to visit the vineyards that are close by via car, push bike or tour. A trip to Lake Ferry original hotel and wild coast and a delightful walk to the Pinnacles are all a must...

We had a pleasant stay during the grape harvest. The breakfast always included a very ample supply of fresh fruit. The accommodations are walking distance from the restaurants and vineyards. Very clean room with all needs met.

A gracious reception and excellent breakfast made this little B&B a charmer. The host David provided us with excellent wine advice and Lorraine cooked up a beautiful breakfast. The best fruit salad and bacon and eggs in NZ!

My usual experience with B&Bs is a gracious host couple welcoming me with a cup of tea, wine, beer, whatever, giving us time in the common area to chat about our plans or needs in the area. We never saw the hostess except to collect my credit card. Her husband was kind. When asked about a time to gather in... More

We were not expecting the tiny poor quality rooms offered here. The walls are paper thin and the noise from the road and other rooms was clearly audible. The bathroom was not big enough to pick up a cat let alone swing it. The lounge in the main house was comfortable but not big enough if all the rooms are... More

This place is really nice - the heritage old style building and the warms of the common space and the sun in the garden ideal for relaxation are the positives which makes this place special. the rooms are clean and comfortable, a bit out-dated possibly, but really that is not why you should pick up martinborough connection. it is the...

David & Lorraine are great hosts and went out of their way to get our breakfast ready for an early departure. Characterful spotlessly clean accommodation just a short walk from the village centre. The garden was especially pleasant to while away an hour before dinner. Would definitely go back and highly recommended.

From the moment we arrived the hosts, David and Lorraine, treated us like friends rather than guests and could not have been more welcoming. They were informal and informative hosts who went out of their way to ensure that we had everything we needed to make our stay as comfortable as possible. David provided a map of the local vineyards... More

A historic house close to the centre of Martinborough, this is a wonderfully relaxing place to stay. Warm and friendly, Lorraine and David are excellent hosts, who go out of their way to make guests welcome. The breakfasts are delicious and the accommodation very comfortable. The bedrooms overlook the beautiful garden - a delightful spot to sit - and there... More
