Marlborough Lodge is a place that surprises and enchants guests in equal measures, with its picturesque grounds, sprawling vines and stately house that once served as a convent for nuns in the early 20th century.
Your arrival at Marlborough Lodge sets the tone for what’s to come during the rest of your stay, as you enter along a driveway lined by lavender, and staff are already on-hand with a glass of local wine ready for you. The leafy trees landscaped lawns and fragrant flowers make for a gorgeous backdrop to this painstakingly preserved property, which is sure to impress with its pristine white veranda that leads into beautiful interiors. Parquet floors, hand-picked furnishings and stained-glass windows are just some of the many thoughtful touches here.
Continue to your guestroom, one of ten rooms and suites that have been designed with great taste and equipped with up-to-the-minute amenities: not only does each include a Nespresso machine, but also a kettle that you can boil up to varying temperatures depending on your tea of choice! Elsewhere, Marlborough Lodge sports an attractive Great Room, outdoor terrace with fireplace, heated swimming pool and a tennis club next-door for active types. Finally, the restaurant deserves a special mention, as this is where you can tuck into fine New Zealand cuisine paired with one of the estate’s very own wines, which is a special touch indeed.
