“Wonderful Experience - One of the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

We stayed in the Hillsfield House Courtyard Room for two nights during our three week tour of New Zealand. The property is gorgeous, the room is beautiful and cozy, and Jo and Steve are the nicest hosts! Plus wine tour bikes are right down the driveway and you have more than enough vineyards to visit within easy biking distance. The room and the setting almost make you want to just hang out in your room for a few days.....with a few bottles of wine. My favorite part was the little "treats" we would find when we came back to the room - chilled water refilled, afternoon carrot cake snack, bed turned down. And there isn't enough space to write about the AMAZING breakfasts brought to your room every morning (the croissants....). This is a great place to spend a few days resting and relaxing after you book a hectic vacation schedule (we know we all do it!). In addition to great vineyards, you are also surrounded by first rate restaurants in the area. Thanks, Jo and Steve, for your hospitality!

My husband selected this amazing B&B for us and another couple for our stay in Marlboro. Not only was the B&B beautiful, clean, amazing views, it had the most gracious and caring hosts. My friends and I truly felt like we were staying with family. Jo and Steve are truly what made our stay so enjoyable. I cannot recommend them enough. Hopefully we will be able to return again and enjoy more time with them and their beautiful place.

We stayed with Jo and Steve for 1 night in the loft room and I honestly can't think of anything they could do to improve, the attention to detail is incredible, the location is excellent and you can easily cycle to many fantastic wineries, we managed 5 in one afternoon.

The room is very spacious and it's nice to come back to such a lovely room after a hard day of wine tasting, breakfast is served in your room and again was lovely.

Jo and Steve are great hosts and I would not hesitate to recommend their lovely B&B

Thank you Jo and Steve for having us stay at their beautiful property, conveniently located amongst the wineries in Renwick for a very cosy autumn night. Jo made dinner reservation for us at Hanz Herzog bistro and when we returned from dinner our courtyard room was already prepared for bed time, with lovely smelly rosemary on our pillows and bathroom. The home made croissants for breakfast were heavenly! You guys deserve all the praise and raves here on Tripadvisor!

All the tripadviser reports said it was 5 star, Paul Carberry of New Zealand in Depth said it was a must to finish our stay on South Island and now we have experienced the delights of pampering by Jo & Steve that happens to all fortunate enough to stay at Hillsfield House. The sincere & warm welcome, the advice on what to do & see but only after finding out your interests, the restaurant bookings and taking to the restaurant if required, the bed turndown service plus the attention to detail, we drink only ground coffee so a plunger and fresh coffee provisions appeared, we were eating a picnic of foods we had stored in our room fridge on night 2 so plates cutlery and homemade carrot cake were waiting in our room on our return on the second afternoon. Yes and the freshly baked croissants that everyone raves about, it all lived up to the well deserved hype. Jo & Steve please keep it up and may you get you’re rewards because you deserve every bit of praise! Simply sublime!!

You will be greeted, quite literally, with open arms by the fabulous hosts! What I liked most about this B&B (outside of the proprietors Jo and Steve) is that the 2 rooms are in a separate building from their home. You have absolute privacy. The Loft was very cozy and charming, every amenity is provided. You order breakfast the night before, and it is delivered to your door at whatever time you like. I cannot recommend the croissants any more highly.

Originally we wanted to stay right in Blenheim. But I really think this location is much better. There are several excellent restaurants just a few minutes drive away, and most of the wineries are within biking distance of the house. Enough for two days I'd say although we only did one.

I would love to return some day.

We stayed here in February 2014 for two nights of our 21 night tour of New Zealand. Really wish we had stayed longer as this is the best place we have ever stayed! Jo and Steve are superb hosts, nothing is too much trouble, and we were made to feel very welcome.
The Loft room was fabulous, and felt like a home away from home. But it really is Jo and Steve that make Hillsfield House so wonderful. If we return to NZ we will definitely be booking in at Hillsfield again, and will recommend it to all of our friends who are heading that way! I could write a lot more, but everyone else has already said it. Hillsfield really does live up to the reviews.
