The atmosphere of this lodge is just delightful. I truly recognized the accommodation is created by the hosts and their personality this time. Trudy is very thoughtful and kind to guests, and her breakfast was very tasty! The restaurant they introduced was wonderful ,too. The memory of the lodge in vineyards is unforgettable. We really want to visit again. Highly...

A peaceful oasis away from the bustle of Blenheim albeit interrupted by the gas gun bird scarers which come with the territory. Trudy and Barry are excellent hosts and helpful in every way. Amongst other things ferrying us to nearby restaurants. Make a trip to The Arbour restaurant a must do. Great breakfast bathed in sunshine looking out on magnificent...

Straw Lodge is ensconced in a family operated vineyard outside Blenheim. The small two suite B&B could not be placed in a better spot. You approach this “heaven in a vineyard” via a narrow gravel driveway. As you approach the front door of the residence (next to, but detached from the suites) you will probably see a free standing chalkboard...

Straw Lodge is an exceptional place to stay when visiting the Blenheim area. With only two rooms, each with private patios facing the beautiful vineyard, guests receive personal attention from the owners, Trudy and Barry. They are generous, warm and genuine, and truly care about their guests. One can request a huge veggie/cheese platter for dinner prepared by Trudy along...

Trudy and Barry were among the most hospitable people we met in New Zealand. They make you feel truly welcome in their home. Breakfasts were very good with excellent fruit, beverages, and yogurt at each meal, and a special main course each day. Trudy made dinner reservations for us and also had excellent suggestions for places to visit, including wineries...

We thought that Straw Lodge was the perfect luxury B&B, with beautiful accommodation set in the heart of the owners' own Marlborough vineyard. Trudy and Barry were perfect hosts and could not have been more helpful to us in so many ways. There were many little extras, including a bottle of their own World's End sauvignon blanc and homemade biscuits...

Our ideal place to stay - quiet and in natural surroundings and away from hustle and bustle. With a super king bed, settee and chair and then a private outside terrace overlooking the vinyard, it provided everything we needed for a relaxed stay. There were thoughtful extras such as home made cookies, a fruit bowl and drinks and milk in...

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
