Since taking over this beautifully restored B & B in January it seems that Megan and Malcolm have really got into the swing of things. The welcome was friendly and the local wine and delicious nibbles at 5.30pm a lovely touch - a good time to meet other guests and get to know the hosts a bit better. As well... More

Hardboard floors, 'vintage' power sockets and water faucets ... you get the idea. Malcolm and Megan took over this place only a few months ago, without any prior b&b experience, and succeeding extremely well at providig their guests with a class act and superb service. A nice glass of wine and home made nibbles prior dinner, and a great breakfast.... More

This is an old house done up beautifully. There are 4 or 5 double bedrooms each with its on bathroom. There is a large outdoor table overlooking a wine yard which is perfect for relaxing with a wine or the newspaper. Breakfast was well cooked and served at a large table in the dining room. Our room was lovely with... More

My wife and I spent a night here recently and had Avery nice time. We selected it as it is number 1 B&B on TA. It is a lovely old place with new owners and overall very good. Missed a 5 star from us because no shampoo or bathrobes and nowhere to put anything in the bathroom. New owners just... More

We've just enjoyed 2 nights at The Old Manse in Martinborough. I haven't had much recent experience in a B&B so wasn't sure what to expect. Our warm welcome and tour of the well appointed facility didn't disappoint. Our room was large with gigantic windows overlooking a closeby vineyard. We were invited to join our hosts for a glass or... More

We stopped off in Martinborough on our way home from Wellington. The B&B had recently been taken over by 2 new owners (Malcolm & Megan) who are doing a great job. The minute we arrived we felt so relaxed in this tranquil setting right next to a vineyard. The B&B is an old converted rectory and has retained many of... More

We stayed here for a Saturday night in February 2015 with relatives from the UK. This was our fourth stay at The Old Manse - the first with new owners Megan & Malcolm. Our last stays have been wonderful and I was nervous about what to expect - but I shouldn't have worried. Megan & Malcolm have retained the complimentary... More

If you had to create the perfect B&B experience this would be it.. Dusty and tired we lugged our suitcases over the threshold to find a perfect sanctuary, romantic wrought iron bed and a long hot bath in clawfoot tub. Our spirits revived we were invited to an informal sips and dips on the porch overlooking the neighboring vineyards. Malcolm... More
