“Perfect!”
Reviewed December 16, 2006

My wife and I stayed for two nights last week at Vintners Retreat. From the moment we arrived, everything about the property and our stay was perfect.

Our suite seemed to be brand new and was spacious, well appointed, and enjoyed wonderful views over neighbouring vineyards. It comprised a large living/dining area, bedroom with built in wardrobe, teraaces to front and rear, and perhaps the most spacious bathroom I have seen in a holiday suite.

All of the accommodation features were top quality with a lovely comfortable bed, good spec TV and DVD/hifi system. Some nice touches were the bottles of own label wine in the suite at a reasonable price (my pet hate is preposterous charging of "minibar" items).

Vintners Retreat has an excellent onsite restaurant, so good we ate there both nights. The menu was superb, both in terms of quality and cost, and the wine list, as you might expect, was both extensive and well priced.

Finally, if you want to visit vineyards, and realistically, if you are here, you will, then Vintners Retreat is the perfect location. Many household names are within walking/cycling distance, or if you can find designated driver, a few minutes by car. These include Montana, Cloudy Bay, & Villa Maria but you should try some of the lesser known vineyards that you probably won't have heard of in advance.

We left regretting only that we didn't have more time here. I would highly recommend Vintners Retreat to anyone!

We wanted to stay at a place in the heart of the wineries in Blenheim, and were recommended Vintners not only for accommodation and situation but also the restaurant. It cost NZ$150 for a one bed suite. The place was newly built, large, and comprised a mini kitchen, kitchen table, desk, living room with sofa, stereo and TV, as well as a huge bathroom and bedroom. The room overlooked the vines and was brand new, clean and fresh. Dinner at the in house restaurant was delicious and of a very high standard. The sort of place you look a bit smarter for with great service and of course great wine.
Highly recommend this place. Helpful and friendly staff. Good value all round.
