The Straw Lodge is perfectly situated in the heart of the Marlborough wine region. We enjoyed a beautifully furnished, private and comfortable suite in the middle of a working vineyard. The vines were just a few paces from our patio. Trudy and Barry are charming and knowledgeable hosts, and they made our all-too-short stay a total pleasure. Many thanks! We...

We have spent 2 nights at the Straw Lodge, a wonderful vineyard in the surrounding areas of Blenheim. As of Christmas 2013 Trudy and Barry are the new owners. They are both excellent hosts. On the evening of our arrival we had a dinner platter (75 NZD), which consisted of cheeses, salami, salmon, bread and vegetables and of course a...

We had two nights at Straw Lodge after completing the Queen Charlotte Track. Trudy made us feel so welcome and had got in food for us to BBQ on our first evening as she guessed we would not want to go out to find a place to eat. On the second night she drove us to a local restaurant. The...

By far the nicest place we stayed in New Zealand. Trudy and Barry were exceptional hosts in every way, and first rate cooks to boot. Straw lodge is a couple of big and super comfortable rooms on a working, organic vineyard in the heart of the Marlborough region. The vines are right outside the front door and you're free to...

What a pleasure it was to stay at the Straw Lodge! It was by far our favorite hotel in New Zealand. The lodge is small with only a couple of rooms so the feel of the entire experience is extremely intimate and personalized. The owners, Trudy and Barry, are unbelievably welcoming and hospitable. Every morning begins with a custom breakfast,...

We spent Christmas 2012 at this wonderful B&B with our two teenage children. Although thousands of miles away, we felt like we were with family. Need I say more? The food was scrumptious and the rooms were impeccable. We ride their bicycles around the countryside, soaked our tired legs in the chilly river and just enjoyed the open spaces; a...

This is a beautiful B&B in a gorgeous setting with the nicest hosts. Trudy and Barry recently bought the B&B and vineyard from the prior owners and they couldn't be better hosts. The place is beautifully kept up. The room is very large with a separate sitting area and its own terrace looking out on the vineyard and the valley....

We stayed one night at the Straw Lodge in September 2013. Nettie and Jane were the most gracious hostesses one could ask for, and I fell in love with giant Texas immediately.

Our little cottage was separate from the main building and 2 suites. It was a sweet place, separate bedroom, lounge/kitchen, laundry area, outside patio where we bbq'd our own steaks.

Having read all the previous reviews we were looking forward to somewhere special to end our holiday in NZ. We certainly found it.

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
