“Just a lovely place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Radfield House is all it says in the other reviews, Jane and Bill the owners were so very kind to me and nothing was to much trouble, always there with any help you may need. The breakfast was so enjoyable with home made jam, bread and fresh fruit salad. I visited the the wine fields and enjoyed a great day out on the mail boat from Havelock a short distance from Bleneim....Thank you Jane and Bill for all the kindness you showed to me while I was staying with you in your beautiful home.

Room Tip: Both rooms are excellent

As far as B&Bs go Radfield House is as good as it gets. Extremely clean, comfortable and above all friendly and helpful. We stayed in the room with the en suite full of fresh roses from the garden. It was so spic and span that it felt like we were the first occupants ever to stay there. And we basically had the whole top floor to ourselves including the lounge, hi-fi, TV. It felt more like an apartment than a B&B, except Jayne provided an amazing breakfast basically made to order. The fruit salad, museli, muffins, bread are all homemade and all delicious.
My wife and I have relatives in Blenheim so we'll be going back...again and again not just for the accommodation but the people themselves, Jayne and Bill, who own and run the place. In all our travels we haven't met nicer B&B owners.

Room Tip: Both rooms are pretty equal. One is larger but has no en suite, but a huge bathroom next door. One i...

We've been to many different hotels, motels, B&B's and this was by far the best experience. Everything was 110% perfect, we couldn't have asked for anything more, beds are extremely comfortable; nice, big bathroom; very, very clean; delicious breakfast (especially the home made jams and muesli!) And Jayne and Bill are the perfect hosts and make everyone feel like home. Highly recommended, we'll definitely be back!

A great place to stay - spotless rooms, comfy beds, spacious bathroom, tasty breakfasts. Beautiful old house. Fantastic helpful hosts. No wonder other reviewers are so complementary! Recommended for a delightful stay in Blenheim.

This is our second visit. I'm happy to tell you that Jayne's high standards are very definitely still maintained throughout every aspect of the accommodation and breakfast. We were in the room without the ensuite this time (the private bathroom and loo are just next door). I actually enjoyed this room even more than the one with ensuite. The large walk-in shower was fabulous! Thank you very much indeed.

The stay here has exceeded my expectations and all the rave reviews I read. Jane is an absolute joy to spend time with, the residence is absolutely perfect, breakfast features fresh baked meals, and her knowledge and organization makes your stay extremely comfortable. She does an exceptional job at making you feel like you are staying at a family members house rather than a guest at a hotel. I highly recommend staying here if you get the chance.

The house and furnishings are beautful, and the location is great. Jayne is an incredible hostess who leaves nothing to want for, home made jams and breads, delicious breakfast, personal touches including doing our laundry for us. One could get quite spoiled staying at the Radfield House.
