Martinborough has made a name for itself as a centre of excellence for cuisine and wine. Visitors and locals alike find the romance of Martinborough endearing as well as invigorating. The hotels past, and it's sense of history and place will charm you as soon as you arrive in the lobby - from the battered suitcases of a gentleman traveller in reception, to the sloping floors and historical sketches of Wairarapa personalities adorning the walls.
Today The Martinborough Hotel offers character, comfort and old style personal attention. As for the little town with the big name which attracts thousands to its fairs, wine and food festival and vibrant restaurant and café scene, Martinborough remains as quirky as ever.
