Super friendly check in with lots of recommendations for our short stay. (Btw, we tasted and lunched at Poppies and it was excellent, thanks Nikki!). Although on the edge of town, the property felt rural and spacious with units thoughtfully situated for privacy and well maintained gardens. Our unit was a two storey (mezzanine?) villa with the bedroom upstairs, a...

Stayed for two nights whilst we toured the region. Very friendly greeting at check in. The Pinot is a two bedroom unit which is very well finished. Beds were comfortable and we lacked for nothing in the kitchen. The walk to the centre of Martinborough is not a long one if you want to eat and drink in town. If...

Myself and 4 other friends stayed here for one night, after a day of wineries. The woman and man at reception were so incredibly helpful- we arrived way before check in time however they let us park our cars and bags next to the rooms, and spent a good ten minutes showing us the map and highlighting all the great...

We spent one night here on our trip around New Zealand. The room was spotless, splendidly proportioned with full kitchen facilities, free parking, a beautiful private decking area which was a real suntrap, and a large bathroom, toiletries included. The proprietor was helpfulness itself, and there was even a book exchange available. The motel is situated just about as far...

The town of Martinborough exudes understated sophistication, beautiful houses, extremely well maintained, great shops, an elegance about it. That it houses the Pinot noir of choice of all the Southern Hemisphere is a happy coincidence. Clermont is positioned a couple of blocks from the beautiful Town Square. Discretely presented, the separate 2br villas all have absolute privacy. Lovely kwila deck...

Ideal for wine tasting trip to Martinborough. Short, 10-15 minute walk to centre of town. We were greeted late in the evening by reception who took the time to show us the local maps and made recommendations for food and wineries. Very friendly staff, clean and nice apartment, comfy beds.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit with another couple and had a wonderful time. It was comfortable and quiet although the beds were a little hard. The owners were great. Hmes and FVDs were available for use.

We stayed here as an extended family group between Christmas and New Year. Agree completely with previous reviewers - the owners are really friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.
