Absolutely a beautiful place to be. Warmest hospitality from the host. Superb breakfast + homemade ruba juice & cakes - best in the world. At night time the spa is just stunning, milky way and star clusters above your head makes you feel you are far away from busy life. We will definitely visit again.

My girlfriend and I stayed here when arriving to New Zealand. It was such a delight. Trudy and Barry were wonderful hosts to say the least. They greeted us with the most delicious fudge, a great sav. blanc, cherries and the cutest sign welcoming us. When we walked to our room, we marveled in the amazing view of the vineyards...

Trudy and Barry are the most hospitable hosts and the facilities are excellent. We stayed for 2 days and wished it was longer. They have very good organic Sauvignon blanc and Pinot noir wines which we sampled and ended up buying. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

Sadly we only had one night here, far to short a time! Beautiful accommodation with the most welcoming owners who catered for every need, and it really is the attention to detail that counts, and it shows. A very warm welcome with lovely goodies in the room. This little gem is perfectly situated for visiting the vineyards in Marlborough and...

We had unforgettable stay here.it's in a very quiet place and surrounding by vineyard. We were so impressive of sunrise and the milky sky in the night. The owner is a couple who are very nice and elegant. We really enjoy stay there.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Luxury Bed & Breakfast in a unique vineyard setting Far from the madding crowds, in the heart of Marlborough's wine district, you will find Straw Lodge Vineyard, and our very different straw-bale constructed homestead and Vineyard Suites - a very special place where rest, relaxation and rejuvenation awaits the discerning traveller. Nestled amongst organic Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir vines Visible from each suite are glorious mountain ranges, behind which the sun sets in beautiful displays of rich colours. Before you retire to your cosy king size bed, bathe in our warm spa pool at night, and gaze up at the clear skies filled with a galaxy of stars. Each private suite has a lounge and en-suite bathroom. Full sumptuous breakfast created from local produce Rise at your leisure to a treat of a continental and/or cooked breakfast, created from home grown or locally produced foods of your choice. Then set out on our pedal bikes, take your own vehicle, or book a tour through the surrounding wineries. Internet use is free of charge, as are our golf clubs, DVDs, and a bottle of wine from our vineyard! ... more   less
