Nice and cosy

The welcome was lovely, the room was super cute, the only thing that wasn't good was the bathroom ceiling and walls were dripping in water from the roof and it dripped all night but still had a nice night thanks

overall a good place to stay - comfortable walking distance to many of Martinborough's vineyards and to the village itself. The room was very well appointed and comfortable; but the experience was dampened - literally - by a design problem in the bathroom which meant that hot air condensed overnight and then 'rained' on the occupants for much of the following morning; and puddled on the floor. If this can be fixed the 'rating' of the experience would be considerably increased, but until it is, it does really interfere with the otherwise delightful amenity of the resort.

Nice room close to Martinborough Centre

Room was smaller than expected for the money we were paying. Outlook was superb- vines, vegetable garden, mountain range. Breakfast supplies consisted of some bread, butter and spreads. Coffee and tea maker but no way to heat milk. Toaster which set off smoke alarm. King size bed very comfortable.

In the heart of the vineyards

Pros: Quiet Comfortable bed
Cons: Bathroom
Location: Vineyards Wine tasting Walking Relaxing
Lovely quiet location away from everything,great for a relaxing stay. Comfortable room with everything needed. Bread and spreads provided for breakfast but no cereal No staff on sight, we had to ring a number and someone arrived about 5 mins later to give us the key. Bathroom needs a fan as full of condensation that drips over you. Lovely underfloor heating

Beautiful place to stay, but....

Beautiful place to stay but when we arrived at 3.30pm our room that I had purposely booked had been taken by someone else we were put into another room where the manager said it was a better room anyway and gave us a free bottle of wine which was very nice, I then asked about breakfast in the morning and she said they don't do breakfast anymore so I was very unsure what our $300 a night was actually covering!!! Not very impressed!!!
