Vintners Retreat is in the heart of the Marlborough wine area. There are a couple of cellar doors that you could literally walk to including Giesen and Nautilus! The accommodation we stayed in was spacious and clean and included everything we needed. The lovely lady at the reception was so helpful when my son cut his forehead at 9pm one...

Spacious modern home with vineyard outlook and the hills of Marlborough in the distance. All the houses at Vintners Retreat are spaced apart from each other so there is a wonderful sense of quiet privacy.

Arranged as a work weekend for all colleagues to catch up and have fun, it was perfect. The location of the Retreat in respect of wineries is great, including the ability to hire bikes to tour around. This is a lovely place and peaceful. The villas are a perfect size and well equipped for all our needs. The beds were...

We flew over from Perth to Blenheim for a family function for 10 days. With having a young family (2 and 4 years old), we weighted the cost and factors of the long flight from Perth and having enough room for the kids to run around in safety and having plenty of space and fresh air, and choose to stay...

Hello mroany Thank you very much for reviewing us and I am so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and found us to be good value.

This place was lovely to stay in. The bed were super comfy, the lounge was a good size, kitchen was well equipped, bathrooms nice with good towels! The only issue with this place is the wi fi, it dropped in and out, I gave up using it!

Great place to stay! Accommodations are top notch, well appointed and very comfortable. Martin was very helpful in arranging activities for us, and we very much enjoyed our stay. You are a bit out of town but we took the suggestion to head for dinner to the Cork and Keg, and had a great dinner there. We would absolutely stay...

Excellent service, the suites are nice. Only issue was an ant problem in the kitchenette which they fixed immediately. Also the suites are not very private as people can walk around and look right into your room.

Hello LeslieC Thank you for your review, however I have a suspicion you may have us mixed up with another property - we have large two and three-bedroom Villas with full kitchens, not suites with kitchenettes, and a quick look at our reservation history shows you booked with us but then cancelled.

You will be sorry if don't stay here....Vintners Retreat is amazing! We have enjoyed staying in the 2brm manor; overlooking the vineyards. The scenery is breathtaking.

Had a lovely stay. The apartments were spacious and tastefully decorated and most importantly, clean & warm. One of our friends have mobility requirements and she found the apartments quite suitable. The surrounding grounds were vineyards which were beautiful, and mountains in the background were amazing.
