Kippilaw is a fabulous house with beautiful grounds,with wonderfully eccentric owners Margaret and Bill,who make everyone welcome. Margaret's food is to die for,it is comfort food with a stylish twist,I first experienced at her food delights at her Gourmet stall at FARMERS MARKET on Sundays at the A&P show grounds.
The guest rooms at Kippilaw are quiet and clean very well appointed.Everything about Kippilaw exudes old-world charm and manners I would honestly recommend Kippilaw to anyone, who wishes to have a unique experience with true southern hospitality.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Feel relaxed, warm and comfortable at Kippilaw House our guests often mention that they have walked in as guests and left us as friends. We are just a few minutes stroll to the waters edge of the Marlborough Sounds, cafes and various activities. Margaret is a professional chef/caterer of many years standing and loves sharing her recipes and experience in food. Bill is excellent passing on knowledge of the region things to do and see. Originally from the borders of Scotland he spent all his school holidays at Kippilaw Estate where his grandfather was the groom. We also operate a very well stocked deli Trailer at the Marlborough Farmers Market in Blenheim on Sundays where guests are most welcome to enjoy their breakfasts if staying Saturday night with us. We pride ourselves on good southern hospitality and place equal importance on the breakfast and the comfortable beds. Our point of difference is providing freshly sourced food with menus changing daily. Complementary afternoon tea is served at 3pm if you have not arrived this is left covered in your room. We make tasty interesting packed breakfasts for early travellers to take away. ... more less
