“Absolutely amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2011

We stayed here for two nights and it was nothing short of amazing. The view are spectacular and the accommodation is amazing, we felt so comfortable and welcome here. Peter and Margaret were so helpful, the breakfasts were devine (nothing beats fresh free range eggs). We loved the way the place was decorated and the cleanliness was exceptional. I would recommend this to anyone who wanted to relax and unwind after a tough day out at the wineries,,,, It is a short drive from town but worth every moment of it.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2011

My family and I stayed here for 2 nights, occupying both rooms of this wonderful bnb. Peter and Margaret were excellent hosts, always checking if we were comfortable and if all our needs were attended to. Breakfast was such a spread that we had to tell them to cut down so as not to waste their efforts! Rooms were splendid, clean and large. The lounge was intimate and cosy so much so that we were unwilling to go out to explore blenheim! We just wanted to order take outs and laze around in this great estate. We honestly have no complains, only compliments for our stay and it was such a shame that we had only 2 nights there. It was definitely our best stay throughout our holiday in New Zealand and if we were ever to return, this would be our one and only choice to stay.

Room Tip: Book early as they only have 2 rooms

How to describe all of the perfection????A home overlooking the vineyards, a vieuw from the south island to wellington across the sea, a fusion of the green of the earth and the blue of the sky. The house is more than tastefully decorated and designed: you are in the upper class. Your hosts are perfect: kind, available,.....Your are staying in the dreams of your holidays. It's seem far but It's conveniently situated. Don't hesitate.....we share our dreams

If it looks good on the website it's nothing short of exceptional in real life. The panoramic view is as breathtaking as the building design. Each time we thought about sightseeing we decided to go back to the hotel to enjoy the beauty and tranquility. Peter and Margaret are welcoming, helpful and friendly but unobtrusive. The beds (and peace) make for a great night's sleep, the bedroom decor is tasteful, but the best thing is the floor to ceiling windows - waking up to that view is a pleasure. Then there's breakfast - delicious, hearty and healthy.
It is ideally located for all that this great wine region has to offer, so if you are in Marlborough and you don't stay here you only have yourself to blame.

We do not think we have stayed in anywhere in our 10 week tour where the decor was fantastic and the house was designed in such a way to maximise every opportunity to see the views. The views from Brancott Ridge are amazing and you can also see some great views from the outdoor pool too.

It has only got two guest bedrooms but these are beautifully furnished. Combine this with the guest lounge area and pool you almost feel like you have the whole place to yourself.

Margaret and Peter have created a wonderful place to stay and the breakfasts are fantastic and served with everything so tastefully done just like everything else about this place.

There is one word to represent this place – EXCEPTIONAL! In the guestbook, my partner described this as ‘A Slice of Heaven’ and this is a very apt description. Everything from the excellent welcome and hospitality from Margaret (owner) through to the classy decor, attention to detail, fabulous breakfasts and the amazing view/ sunsets were first rate. We were lucky enough to stay for 2 nights and didn’t want to leave at the end of it. Brancott Ridge truly relaxes and energises.

In terms of location, yes the accommodation is out of Blenheim and 2km up an off road dirt track but it is superbly located for the key vineyards of the area and Blenheim is only a 15minute drive away. We will one day return to this heavenly place and if you are planning to stay in this area and would like to relax and be pampered then this is for you.

My wife and I wanted to explore the wine region of Marlborough for a long weekend and found Brancott Ridge to be the perfect place to do this. Our hosts, Margaret and Peter were very welcoming from the outset and throughout our stay.

The residence had stunning views out over the vineyards and was delightfully furnished and finished. Each room had a 'private' feel to them with an individual sitting area outside. The floor to ceiling windows were fabulous.

Breakfast was really tasty and all home prepared. We just loved the attention to detail, the crockery, cutlery, table ware.....it all spoke of great taste.

We would visit again in a flash.
