This turned out to be a luxury B n B experience. We were spoiled by the hosts, Philip and Marilyn. Philip is a former hotelier and chef and he made lovely meals for us, from simple late night ssandwiches (when we arrived) to delicious salmon dinners. On the day we left, he got up at dawn to make sure our croissants were toasted. Both are very knowledgeable about local wine and local winemakers. They also know the local sites--and events. We went to hear live music at the local pub on their recommendation. Great fun!
The house is in a magical setting, against rolling hills and down a quiet lane. The night skies are amazing!
The room we stayed in is lovely, spacious and well-appointed. I'm fussy about linen, and the bed was beautifully laid. We were drooling over the newly finished quarters--which weren't finished when we visited. I don't think there is a more romantic suite in all of Marlborough! That suite would be my first choice on our next visit.
Nothing to fault--would recommend this B & B to any couple seeking a luxury base in wine country.
