Denise and Bruce are delightful hosts and have a beautiful property, well maintained in ideal setting. Enjoyed two restful days in this picture postcard village and loved the opportunity to leave the car and walk between places with the close proximity to town and wineries. Only negative was noise between rooms. Breakfast was excellent and nice to have library area...

Really nice accommodation - comfortable and quite luxurious. Excellent ambience. Hosts, Bruce and Denise were ultra friendly and full of good advice. Reasonably easy walk to a number of great vineyards and into town. Perhaps a but on the expensive side.

We have just spent the weekend at this wonderful venue. Superb! Martinborough is a great place to visit and Alystone is part of one of New Zealand's best spots. Lovely rooms and a wonderful breakfast. Thank you for a wonderful experience, the greatest hosts ever!

It is a “retreat” from the hustle & bustle of everyday living, giving a quiet, peaceful time to reflect, sit up on the roof turret lookout, enjoy a glass of something you just purchased! survey the acres of vines in every direction and decide which winery to visit next; a cup of tea on your own balcony or if it...

I booked a surprise weekend away for my husband and I on our first anniversary, and we absolutely loved Aylstone Retreat. The host was friendly and happily gave us advice on things to do and see in Martinborough; the room was gorgeous and comfortable; and we had a lovely private courtyard to drink our local pinot noir in.

In the Aylstone we found an excellent boutique retreat experience in Martinborough.. An idyllic setting amongst the various vineyards in an already stunning area and within very short walking distance from the town square this little gem is a true winner.. Not only does it look picture perfect with a colonial feel and spacious bedrooms, which are bright and immaculately...

Every accommodation was made to ensure we had a lovely visit. It's all in the personal touch and Denise and Bruce get it all right! From the immaculate, quiet room, delicious breakfast, sweet room finishes and great conversation, it was all perfect. As we ventured out to dinner, we were sent off on bikes and given recommendations to Micro Wine...
