“The best place we stayed in NZ”
Reviewed February 17, 2009

This is definitely a 5 star experience. The rating system won't allow me to select 'excellent' - maybe a bug in the system.

We were warmly welcomed by Robin and Nancy Taylor who readily provided all the necessary advice regarding restaurants and sightseeing.

Facilities here are superb with two very large bedrooms with a small living area with television, fridge, and sink and comfortable chairs.

Breakfasts were magnificent, cooked to order with choice of eggs poached, fird or scrambled.

An added attraction was the Alpacas which could be watched being handfed.

Definitely a place to come back to. The ensuite for the handicapped was much appreciated.

Stayed February 2009, traveled with family

Reviewed January 2, 2007

We were staying at Blenheim in the Marlborough region which is famous for the vineyards in the area. We found Omaka Heights on their great website. The website had very easy directions on how to find the property. It was a little out of Blenheim, right in the heartland of the wine district, which we loved. The B&B is situated on a hill with sensational views of the surrounding vineyards with a glorious mountain backdrop visible from our private deck adjoining our room. The property also has alpacas which the kids loved. The hosts, Robin & Nancy were fantastic and really helped us arrange our daily excursions. The room was well appointed (including a disabled capable bathroom in one of the rooms) and very comfortable. There was an excellent guerst lounge which was great for the kids to relax. This is the best B&B we have stayed in during our time in NZ and would strongly recommend it to anyone.
