Hillsfield House is a beautiful place to stay and Jo, who is so friendly and helpful, is a really great host. Jo provides lots of helpful information about the area and restaurants etc making it very easy to decide what to do and where to go. The B&B has a great location, only minutes away via bike, which are provided for guests' use free of charge, from many of the great Marlborough vineyards (e.g Wairau River, Gibson Bridge to name only two) and a couple of minutes from Renwick. The courtyard room was charmingly decorated in a traditional country house style, was like a 5 star hotel room, with lounge area and even a four poster bed. Jo provides a menu for selecting your preferences for a very generous continental breakfast (croissants with local honey and jams and the fruit platter were great) served in your room. Also have to thank Jo for the huge and yummy packed lunch she made us for our day’s cycling in the Charlotte Sounds. Cannot recommend staying at the Hillsfield House highly enough, so glad we picked this B&B for our 3 night stay and surely the only place to stay in Marlborough! Thanks again for your warmness and kindness Jo!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Courtyard Cottage is a peaceful, rural, self-contained hideaway, aptly named as it is found nestled in a pavilion, separate to that of your hosts, with a private entrance all of its own so you can make yourselves at home and come and go as you please. Tastefully and elegantly furnished, The Courtyard Cottage boasts a cosy lounge and dining area on the ground floor, along with a country-styled kitchenette, overlooking a sheltered garden filled with roses and lavender. Upstairs, a romantic master bedroom awaits you with a four poster bed, quality brocade bed linen and its own bathroom, stocked with beautiful hand-made soaps and bath toiletries, by Jeymar Soap & Body. Allow yourselves to indulge and be pampered, and awaken each morning to a continental breakfast served in your room at a time of your choosing, to suit your relaxation or travel plans. Alternatively, if preferred, we can bring you a basket of breakfast goodies the night before, to be enjoyed in the morning, at your leisure. During your stay, if the idea of gently cruising around Renwick's gorgeous boutique cellar doors takes your fancy, where you can take your time to delight in seasonal fare and some of the tastiest wine you could ever hope to try, we would love to make it happen for you. Here, you will find yourselves right in the heart of Marlborough's wine region and so our package also includes a complimentary bike tour with Wine Tours by Bike where you will have over a dozen or more cellar doors and restaurants to choose from, all within easy cycling distance away, via flat roads and bike paths and we promise you don't need to be super fit or confident on a bike to reach them. ... more less
