Stay a night or two in Marlborough

For a memorable night in Marlborough choose boutique accommodation surrounded by vineyards or escape to a lodge or retreat in the Marlborough Sounds.

Along with a great line up of hotels, motels and holiday parks in the region you can also choose to get in amongst it all with your choice of accommodation in Marlborough.

The Marlborough landscape is dominated with neat rows of vines, that grow the grapes, that produce the world class wines, that has made Marlborough world famous as a food and wine destination. 

When you visit Marlborough spend your day sampling wine at winery cellar doors and picking up locally grown fresh produce and take it back to your accommodation among the vines.  There is a great range of boutique hotels, lodges,  and B&B's where the vines start just metres from the door so you can sit back and relax, and reflect on your day over a glass of your new favourite Marlborough wine.

From Picton or Havelock board a water taxi or scenic cruise out to one of the lodges, resorts or B&B's in the Marlborough Sounds.  It doesn't take long to get there, but when you arrive you will feel like you have totally escaped.  You won't miss out on great food and wine, seafood is of course a speciality.  No matter what time of year an early morning kayak to explore the bays is a must, followed by a hearty breakfast. Or just sit back and relax and watch the waterline for pods of dolphins.

Take the opportunity to go for a walk through the bush or climb into a hammock and read that book you have been meaning to get to.
