Matt and Naomi are excellent hosts. They provided an enjoyable atmosphere and the breakfasts were exceptional. This is the only place I will stay in Blenheim now. Rooms are spacious and clean. The house is convenient to everything. Enjoy a glass of wine in the tv room or better yet, at poolside.

Just down the road from Wither Hills and the Omaka Aviation Museum - both worth several hours of anyone's time; and more! Matt & Naomi are warm and informative hosts with the best fruit medley, yoghurts, cereals (incl home made muesli) and decent coffee - Matt roasts the beans first. I had a single room but the other couple had...

Matt and Naomi were great hosts for my one night, and it was just what I needed, as a senior citizen by myself. Loved the refreshing pool, and breakfast was just superb. Would thoroughly recommend. Local bus and shops close by.

Matt and Naomi are lovely hosts and very accommodating. Our room was very comfortable and they offered a separate lounge with TV and DVD options. The continental breakfast was great in the morning and Matt makes a fantastic barista coffee and home-made bread. They have a lovely pool on offer to guests too, but we didn't get a chance to...

They were very helpful with my extra requests on this stay. The bed was super comfortable as always and the bedroom easy to heat with the heat pump. The location is...

This lovely B and B is owned and run by a young couple who have thoroughly researched the needs of their customers, are eager to please, genuinely welcoming and perceptive. The location is ideal for catching the Interislander. Our room was very comfortable and quiet.

We stayed at Rev's Retreat while in town for a wedding at the neighbouring Wither Hills winery. Matt and Naomi were very friendly and accomodating hosts, who made us feel very welcome. Small touches, like an airport pickup, restaurant recommendations, and terrific coffee, make this a top notch B&B and one I would recommend if you are visiting Marlborough.

This retreat reminded me of how great kiwi hospitality can be. Just what I needed a true retreat. The breakfast was 5 star with fresh home made coffee. It had a warm feel to it and the owners truly know the concept of 5 star kiwi hospitality. 'Paul Skerten'
