The Olde Mill is the perfect place for a stop in wine country! Diane and Robert make you feel welcome and provide a lovely oasis to enjoy after a day of exploring the nearby vineyards. The gardens are spectacular - Don't be worried about the bees! They really don't bother with you, but there is also an alternate path if you are really concerned.
Our room was beautiful - clean and cozy with a big ensuite bathroom, complete with lovely bath products, a hairdryer and comfy robes. The room has glass doors leading out to a terrace with a table & chairs for 2... perfect for enjoying morning coffee or an afternoon glass of wine!
The bicycles are in great condition and come with helmets and satchel bags for any purchases you make at the cellar doors along the wine route. Robert set us up with a map and some great recommendations for exploring this picturesque region, which is literally all within 5KMs of the Olde Mill.
We used the remarkably clean and well-maintained grill to cook up a great dinner and then thoroughly enjoyed a soak in the hot tub, sampling some of the fruits of our earlier labors! (A great sparkling red called "Bubbles for Beth", from local winery Forrest)
Breakfast in the morning included lots of homemade preserves, james and spreads - I think the ginger & fig was my personal fave! It was nice to meet the other guests and swap stories about our wonderful New Zealand adventures and the subtle differences in various "Marmite" spreads. Diane makes great lattes, which starts the morning off right!
The Olde Mill is a fantastic value for money and shouldn't be missed if you are planning on exploring the Marlborough wine country!
