Pinot Villas is perfectly located for your stay in the wine area of Martinborough. Situated in the heart of the village and close to local restaurants and shops. The villas have everything you need for a pleasant stay and the host, Ian is very helpful. He will help you out with suggestions for dining out and sight seeing. Highly recommended. Denise and David McKay from Canberra, Australia.

Booked on wotif and chose on basis of reviews. Well appointed one bed apartment and good value for money, esp if looking for weekend break. One bedroom apartment is very clean, warm (lots of heaters) and spacious for two people. On a section with other similar properties but feels private enough if you dont want to deal with people. Super friendly hosts who make you feel welcome but dont crowd your space. Plunger coffee in the fridge a nice touch, as was very useful recommendations for the area. One minute walk from town square/cafes/wine centre - handy if visiting during the shoulder season like us as places in town are open at night - and easy stroll down a straight road to the main cluster of wineries. Def coming back to Pinot Villas. Quick diversion - 'Circus' (local cinema) was open Monday night and serves incredible food. Execellent local fare/service/fire place and well priced considering the quality and quantity of meals (we spent $80 on two mains and three glasses of wine - and much more satisfying than many similar mid-range places in Wellington). Understated gem!

Room Tip: We stayed in a one bedroom villa which was comletely detatched. All the rooms loked good but the one...

We stayed in November and had a great experience. The owner was at dinner and he left the restaurant to come check us in. The rooms are so comfy and the garden and area around the property is kept nicely. The owner was a wealth of knowledge on the area and super friendly. This was our favorite place in NZed over 6 weeks of visiting the South and North Island. It is a great value.

We stayed for two nights in February and all our expectations were met. Other reviewers have said it all, really. Comfortable, spacious, light, well-equipped, and very close to the village square.
In fact, our only disappointment was with Martinborough, which was much smaller than we expected and a bit dull.

It's my second stay here, and I was looking forward to it! A warm, relaxed welcome to one of the nicest places I stay when away on business. I'd highly recommend it (but keep it to yourself so it's not fully booked next time I turn up!)

Pinot Villas is a lovely place to stay in superb village.Ian was a fantastic friendly host, showed us the ins and outs of the room and gave us suggestions of where to go for dinner.The rooms are beautifully decorated, clean, spacious and comfortable. The bathroom had a spa for 2 in it and the bed was very comfortable. The villas are close to the town square, pub and restaurants all within walking distance. Also close to lots of wineries. All in all this is a lovely place to stay and we would highly recommend you do so.

We had a really lovely time at Pinot Villas.

The owner came and showed us personally through our room upon arrival and turned on the heater to ward off the cold. Everything we needed in terms of tea, coffee, milo and milk (and biccies) was provided.

The lounge was really comfortable and had a variety of books, music and games to play. Even though it was a cold night, the heater warmed the place up nicely.

The bedroom and bed were very comfortable and I made good use of the electric blanket. Bathroom was also clean and fresh and had lots of little bits and pieces that come in so useful on trips and add a nice finishing touch.

The villas were peaceful and quiet and just what we were looking for in terms of a country getaway

Overall 5 Starts =D

Room Tip: All the villas are peaceful and quiet.
