Reviewed November 27, 2011

I took my husband to the Marlborough Viineyards for his 50th birthday. From the moment we we were greeted by Phil, we knew we were in for a great weekend. Phil & Katherine are terrific hosts with fabulous senses of humour. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious... sorry Katherine, Phil's were brilliant too... you've trained him well, there was no clear winner ! :)
We would love to return and spend another 4 nights there. The vineyards are fabulous and Phil's recommendations were spot on, we dined at wonderful restaurants recommended by them both and all in all it was a great trip. Blenheim is a wonderful spot made more wonderful by these 2 characters and the best wine in the world.

Room Tip: Both rooms atre lovely and spacious.

My husband and I along with another couple stayed with Phil and Kathryn for a couple of nights and had the place to ourselves. We were waited on hand and foot. The rooms are lovely and bathroom spacious. The highlight, of course, is the amazing breakfast each morning. So good and plenty of options. Phil and Kathryn have created a very comfortable but 5 star place to stay and we would definitely go back again. I even went home with Kathryn's delicious cookie recipe.

Philly & Kathryne are the ULTIMATE hosts & Antria is a very cool lodge full of personality & charm where you can exhale & take it all in. The rooms were fantastic, comfortable & beautifully decorated. The hospitality was 5-star. Not to mention the yummy food Phil & Kathryne whip up for you....

We booked a half day wine tour w/Philly as our guide & had an A-MA-zing time....a total ball! He catered the tour to our tastes & took us to several vineyards 'off the beaten track'. It was one of my favorite days in NZ....

I would not consider a trip to NZ complete without a stay at Antria & can hardly wait to visit again!

Stayed for 2 nights with Phil and Kathryn in Antria Lodge. Had a great time and they made our stay in the area so much easier by sharing plenty of insights on the best wineries, restaurants and modes of transport. If you want a relaxing stay in Blenheim with locals who know the place best, we'd highly recommend it

the room is cozy and comfortable, the whole lodge is also really clean and nice. there are a wonderful garden, nice living room which you can watch tv or dvd(they have amazing selection! we enjoyed harry potter again). katherine is a good cook! she cooked fresh breakfast everyday, their blueberry pancake is fantastic! you should try it. welcoming chocolate fudge is also very nice..the hosts are perfect, this trip was special thanks to them.they are always there when you need help, they also offer a ride when you need to have dinner out. they recommend good winery and spots to visit. it is at the center of so many winery, close to shops. they told me i am the first korean girl who stayed here, i hope more asian people to come here and enjoy the real pleasure...

Room Tip: there are only two rooms, so its very private to stay. i don't think there is a big difference...

We had a great time getting to know you in the short time you stayed. We were happy to be part of your celebration. The fact that you had flown all the way from China for 3 days in our beautiful region was just great. Hopefully you will have more time in NZ when you visit next time. Thank for the photos you posted and we wish you all the best for the future.

Perhaps the most laid back and pleasant break we have ever had. Kathryn and Phil could give cooking classes so good were the breakfasts and cookies. The rooms are great the surroundings great and the hosts were the best.
