We'd read reviews for Cloudy Bay Views, which is why we decided to try it. And it almost didn't happen - a fair bit of confusion on finding it, and our fault in not having the owners phone number on us - but we finally got there. And we're SO glad we did. The rooms are fine - it's a B&B. The beds were comfortable, the room was clean and tidy, the bathroom good. The view from every room is quite stupendous - straight out onto Cloudy Bay. And the welcome from our host was so warm and generous - Barb and Mike are fabulous hosts, as are their puppies :-). After a very late lunch on a winery (they are situated within 15 minutes drive of many of the wineries, some of them closer) we decided that cheese and wine was the way to go for the rest of the afternoon/evening, and it was just so relaxing, sitting overlooking the extensive gardens, down through paddocks of sheep and cows, and then onto the waters of Cloudy Bay. And the sunset - wow. Can't recommend this place - or the welcome we received - highly enough. Yes, you can stay in Blenheim itself - but with this little gem, why would you want to?
