We stayed here 2 nights but could have stayed much longer. Beautiful views; lots of activities available or you can just chill. The food was excellent and the 7 course digger station came with a wine pairing and was as good as any similar taster menus we have had in UK. Staff very attentive but not intrusive. A lovely restful...

Nestled in the heart of the stunning marlborough Sounds is this absolute gem of a lodge. From the moment you step off the comfortable ferry from Picton ( 20 minutes journey and a treat in itself ) you re met by the Guest Experience Manager and that sets the tone for fantastic service throughout your visit. The apartments are fabulous,...

My husband and I had the privilege of staying at this resort for 6 days while we walked the Queen Charlotte Track. From our room on the hill which overlooked the bay to the exceptional food served up each day to the polished and genuinely friendly staff we could not fault anything about this fantastic place.

What a fantastic destination. Excellent service, accommodation, wine and food. The staff were always super helpful, but never under foot. The menu and wine list were simply perfect. And the accommodation is secluded enough that you feel truely on your own. Make sure you take bush walking shoes, as there are some great nature walks from the resort of varying...

Traveling from north to south this was our first taste of the South Island . Spectacular scenery from the start travelling to BOMC by fast launch through the sound was breathtaking.

A special place in the Marlborough Sound which is only accessible by boat. Stay a couple of days or stay a week. Very peaceful and you will be well looked after. Also has a public restaurant for day trippers.

Thanks Neville and thanks for joining us this morning for breakfast. The Bight Cafe is certainly a great spot for locals or visitors to 'drop in' for a coffee - or something colder. We also have a wonderful fine dining restaurant - The Foredeck where an evening dining experience will take you on as journey of arguably the best food...

This place is amazing. The view from every room is incredible. Truly hard to beat. The service is outstanding. From the moment you step off the boat, where you are greeted by name, the staff is attentive, but not over bearing. They think of everything before you do. Then you go to dinner. Wow. The food is amazing. The chef...

We loved the whole experience which begins when you board the boat at Picton. From then on it is unpretentious, friendly and fabulous. Of particular mention the wine tasting session which was the only one ive ever managed to get through and learn something and the food - out of this world. Go hungry! Amazing views across the bay from...
