Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Simply perfect! We had 2 storey accommodation with huge bedrooms, spacious bathroom with great shower - even a spa bath! The views from the patio area were amazing - vines stretching to the mountains and we loved watching the birds, especially the harrier on the hunt at dusk. The pool was refreshing after a day of wine tasting! Accommodation included a washing machine and dryer and a superb well equipped kitchen. It was a great spot to unwind. The only suggestion would be to ask the owners to put a few stickers on the large picture windows as a beautiful thrush hit the window whilst we were there! Luckily it recovered after about 20mins but the birds can’t see the windows in the evening sun! Wouldn’t hestitate to stay here again!

This is the ultimate getaway for a family. House #14 was perfect for a family of 4 with a fully equipped kitchen to huge bathrooms (2!!) to a washer and dryer and dishwasher to Netflix. Very comfortable beds and it felt like a home away from home. The location cannot be beat - within walking distance to many wineries. The price cannot be beat, either!

Oh my goodness we loved it here. We had a 2 bed bungalow with laundry facilities and it was so clean and airy. We relaxed and enjoyed the accommodation including the pool. All of the wineries are here and wine tasting can be arranged in walking distance. The rooms have large kitchens and bathrooms with jacuzzi baths and walk in showers. There was nothing not to like.

We have been coming to Vitners since it opened. We will not stay any where else in Blenheim. Have just had another fabulous weekend in the Manor. So relaxing as soon as you walk in just leave all your troubles and tension at the door. Mike keeps an amazing property the standard is 5 plus. Best manager they have ever had nothing is a problem. See you again soon.

What a wonderful surprise. With our friends we stayed in a two bed house. It was huge, and beautifully furnished and equipped. We overlooked vineyards and mountains and wished we had booked for longer. This is a great place and the location for the wineries could not be better. We will definitely return. Don’t miss this place.

We stayed here for 2 nights with our 2 teenagers in a 2-bedroom villa. It's a peaceful place to stay, with views out over the vineyards and mountain range. We loved the pool and also played tennis. Our villa was clean, comfortable, spacious and had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again.

Our family recently stayed here and loved the location, space and cleanliness of this place. The apartment was well equipped and had everything you needed. Tennis courts were great to keep the kids occupied. We definitely will come back, hopefully when the weather is better!
