“Hotel d'Urville, magic in Marlborough”
Reviewed March 2, 2004

my wife and i just returned from a truly fantastic holiday in NZ. We toured the north of the south island in a hire car and stayed in Nelson and the Marlborough sounds. Both those areas are beautiful. Nelson has lots of arty stuff, good food and lovely beaches. The Sounds are stunning with great places to stay and good fishing! The highlight however was 4 nights at the Hotel d'Urville in Blenheim..pure magic right in the heart of Marlborough. The wine region is on your doorstep and the hotel organises wine tours, (with a driver!) so u can explore and taste those great wines. They even have a cooking school in the hotel! The restaurants in the region are very good but the one at the hotel is exceptional with a Chef from one of the Conran restaurants in London. Food so good it was a shame to have to go out. But it was the rooms that were the best. all the rooms in the hotel are different and each one superb (we got to see most of them) we stayed in the New Zealand room which is quirkily but beautifully furnished and proped with lots of Kiwiana and has a delightful bathroom. The hotel only has 13 rooms so the service is fantastic as well with Julia the manager and the rest of the staff making us feel like we were part of the family.
those 4 days really made our holiday. New Zealand is a world away from anywhere else which is what makes it so special. we will be going back next year for sure. Chris and Soo Hui Chang.

A wonderful region for wine lovers and foodies a culinary paradise. The hotel has 11 rooms and no two rooms are alike and the individual flavour of each is captured in an eclectic mix of four-poster beds, exotic fabrics and antiques.
Great staff, great food. A great base for exploring the region if you have limited time this area would be the best way to sample all of what NZ has to offer.
