We stayed recently at Sublime Lodge for a staff function. They did us a favour as we were a larger group than is usual for them. We're all hospitality workers so it was so aweaome to be so well looked after and feel so welxome and at home!! Great food. Great wine. Fantastic atmosphere and people :) I would visit... More

Dropping into Kurow form the Dansey's, we decided to stay for the night. A quick check on trip advisor resulted in a phonecall to Sublime and fortunately they had a night free. It's about 10 minutes out of town on a quiet country back road. The accommodation is a wing of the house filled with art and seriously cool stuff.... More

This was our Kurow stop on the Alps to Ocean cycle trail. Steve picked us up from the Kurow Winery to save us a few kilometres on gravel roads. A welcoming, peaceful place with lovely views of vineyard and the mountains beyond the Waitaki River. The meal was special - paua and their own beef, and the wine sublime. Breakfast... More

We loved this place. From the moment we arrived, Steve and Fenella were fun and charming, with just the right balance of hosting and leaving us be to relax. At various points, we sat by the roaring fire and covered ourselves in blankets on the terrace to watch the sun create beautiful patterns on the mountains. The B&B itself is... More

Sublime B & B is located 5km off the main Waitaki Valley highway linking Omarama and Oamaru. It is blissfully located in a rural setting on a Vinyard. The decor is eclectic, the service relaxed and excellent, the food is sensational, honestly it's worth a stay for Femellas' cooking alone. We had paua patties as a starter followed by a... More

Great outlook, relaxed and friendly hosts, everything was so easy. Food was fantastic, wine was lovely and generous, rooms comfortable. Kids loved it and want to go again. It was a great find for an easy relaxing and fun night away with our kids (age 4 and 5).

Sublime lodge is a fantastic b&b. Steve and Fenella are gracious hosts. Dinner was amazing: home made game sausages, pork belly cured a few days before by Steve and a great cake afterwards. You'll want to take some of the homemade bread with you. The wine off the property - a great Pinot noir and a surprise in an excellent... More

Good stuff: Great rural location with a wonderful outlook from the rooms.. Fascinating decor. Comfortable rooms with very good bed linen. Excellent evening meal. Good wine. Friendly, helpful and welcoming owners. Other stuff. All I can think of is that a little more shelf space in the bathroom would be good and an in-house credit card system for payment would... More

Sublime is the name for an extraordinary place, awesome breakfast, superbe dinners (upon request) and most of all lovely hosts! It is truly a great experience to spend time at Sublime. Steve and Fenella have a lot to offer and share. Our... More

When planning our holiday in NZ we made good use of TripAdvisor and were mostly happy with the results. Sublime Wines had such a consistent rating that we had very high expectations: we can honestly say that these were fully met and indeed exceeded by the very warm welcome, the comfortable accommodation, the truly stunning food that Fenella cooked for...
