In the Aylstone we found an excellent boutique retreat experience in Martinborough.. An idyllic setting amongst the various vineyards in an already stunning area and within very short walking distance from the town square this little gem is a true winner.. Not only does it look picture perfect with a colonial feel and spacious bedrooms, which are bright and immaculately...

Every accommodation was made to ensure we had a lovely visit. It's all in the personal touch and Denise and Bruce get it all right! From the immaculate, quiet room, delicious breakfast, sweet room finishes and great conversation, it was all perfect. As we ventured out to dinner, we were sent off on bikes and given recommendations to Micro Wine...

We stayed at Aylestone Boutique Retreat for two nights as part of our five week NZ trip. Bruce met us on arrival and was absolutely lovely. He showed us round and because he and Denise had decided to close for a few days, told us we were the only ones there and gave us a room upgrade! They are justifiably...

Bruce and Denise were lovely hosts.Beautifull B and B in the heart of wine country. We found a couple of other things to do that we would really recommend. Drive to Cape palliser to see the fur seals and from there to the Lake Ferry hotel for the fish and chips, beer, and the view.

We stayed here as a couple beautifully appointed. Bruce was a lovely host and full of helpful information. The room was spacious and clean however the only negative was being in having a room above us which you could hear every footstep. We would definitely book again but request a room without the upstairs facility for quietness. The breakfast was...

Bruce and Denise offer a warm and friendly welcome to this beautifully appointed B&B set among the vineyards of Martinborough. The views are fabulous and the rooms perfect. Complete quiet and serenity! Within walking distance of great vineyards and the village. Lovely continental breakfasts served by Bruce who is fun and helpful. A really classy place to be highly recommended.

This is a truly beautiful place to stay. Bruce, the owner, could not have been more pleasant; the welcome was warm and genuine and he could not have been more helpful. Our room was lovely - spacious, spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished with a delightful private patio overlooking the vineyard. The only regret we had was that we had booked...

Recently returned. Bruce the owner of the property could not be nicer. This place has a few, very well done rooms next to a vineyard. Our room looked directly onto the vinyard with a nice back yard view, which I recommend (along with a glass of the red wine in the room from a local winery). Large, very clean, great...
