I spent four days cycling around the Marlborough wine region and this was my penultimate night stop. I wish it had been the first and only one. The beauty and tranquility of the house and the location were outstanding but even they couldn't match the friendliness of Layonie and her team. Taking pity on a lone traveller, Layonie invited me back for her family BBQ which was a very special evening. I spent three months travelling around the world and this was an equal first with Los Juncos in Bariloche, Argentina.

Our stay at Old St. Mary's Convent provided the perfect ending to a wonderful trip to New Zealand. The park-like setting of this outstanding accommodation, in the midst of the vineyards of Marlborough, is beautiful and serene. The convent is furnished with gorgeous antiques. A lovely breakfast and all refreshments are included in the price, including the convent's own wines -- try the Merlot Malbec. I can also recommend the cold plate that you can have prepared for a small additional cost -- a delicious spread of meats, cheeses, vegetables and fruit that was so lovely to enjoy while sitting by the fire in the great room. We (a party of four) were the only guests there at the time, so we had the place to ourselves. We were hosted by Maria, who has worked at this accommodation for several years. She is a fabulous host and incredibly accommodating and helpful. She even providing a duffel bag for my friend when the zipper of her suitcase broke on our final day! I can honestly say that this was the finest accommodation in which I have stayed, and well worth the cost. Go ahead and treat yourself! Note that there are very nice cats in the house (not permitted in the guest rooms), but I am an allergy sufferer and had no difficulty with them.

Arrived at this beautiful location in the heart of vineyard country. We stayed in the 'Mother Superior Suite' and it was very much superior. A suite with luxurious bedlinen, towels bathrobes and furniture. The exclusive use of downstairs library etc. well stocked bar (drinks complimentary) do enjoy their own brand wine, it is worth bringing some home! The breakfast was excellent and again nothing too much bother for the hosts who were so friendly and helpful. They recommended a nearby winery where we had a most enjoyable dinner at a very reasonable cost.
The walk around the large grounds are worthwhile and do visit the beautifully restored wooden church in the garden.
We enjoyed our short stay in this hidden gem and wished we could have stayed longer but our trip was planned before we left home which included visiting the South Island staying at boutique hotels before we went to visit our son and family in the North Island.

My husband and I traveled to NZ for two weeks and came upon this special place at the last minute. My boys (ages 10 and 14) loved it too! They have a great pool, tennis courts, bikes.....and a delicious breakfast. The owners and staff are truly wonderful and really care about your visit to their magical place. A must if you are in the area!
