Certificate of Excellence

No need to say more - I echo every word of the last review. We too did not want to eat out one evening and Heidi's cold platter was a treat, visually and in taste. We didn't want to leave after our three nights.

We stayed at the Peppertree for 3 days and would love to have stayed longer. Our room was delightful, with french doors opening onto a private section of the lovely garden so that we could spend a relaxed evening enjoying one of Heidi's cold platters washed down with the Peppertree's own home-grown wine - it was great to be able to do this when we didn't feel like driving out to a restaurant. So many small details make this place special, like the fruits straight from the garden - plums, kiwis, greengages, peaches - and really comfortable accommodation with everything we needed. Breakfast was superb, beautifully cooked and presented, with the freshest of ingredients, home made preserves and the best bircher muesli ever. There is a casual elegance about the house and garden, which nestle at the foot of hills that are great for walking and getting views of the surrounding vineyards, including Werner's own where he grows the grapes for his very good chardonnay. Our hosts were really helpful with advice on local wineries (Hunters do an excellent lunch), restaurants, etc, as well as being most hospitable and welcoming, yet never imposing on our privacy. They also had a good wi-fi connection which was important to us. A definite place to stay if we manage to get back to NZ - if they're not fully booked!

We spent a night at the Peppertree Lodge, just outside of Blenheim, and really enjoyed our stay. Heidi and Werner were fantastic hosts and really made us feel at home. After showing us around the house, we strolled around the vinyard, olive grove and gardens, visited part of the wine county on Heidi's recommendation, and gathered with all the other guests for a drink - their homemade wine (very good!) and homemade olive oils/dishes as an apetizer. The room we had was spacious and had a nice little garden, the bathroom was a bit cold but nice and large. Breakfast was delicious - homemade breads, jams, cooked eggs, fresh ham and cheese - just perfect!

Why? To explain quite how outstanding The Peppertree is , I need to put things in context… Four of us were almost in the middle of our six plus weeks away from day-to-day life in London. We had already enjoyed spring in Japan, at the peak of the cherry and plum blossom season and, following a short break in Sydney, we arrived on South Island in NZ, God’s Country. One night in Christchurch, and scenery beyond description on the trip across the island on the TranzAlpine, a night in Nelson (the happiest place in NZ) and more views beyond imagination on the coastal route to The Peppertree, just outside Blenheim…

Could we really be impressed any more?

We were greeted by the corridor of pepper trees, a passage into the sanctuary that is The Peppertree. If the place were to have a strapline, it should be: Having enjoyed nature’s gift to mankind, come enjoy our gift to you…

Hospitality beyond expectation… Countless thoughtful details, an intuitive grasp of each individual guest’s needs… In my case, the third cup of the superb Havana blend coffee… To accompany the feast which was offered as breakfast: birchen muesli with cream and yogurt (and their own raspberries), yogurt with. their own apricots, the freshest fruit salad (with their own really fullsome peaches), eggs any way you like… Even the walnuts in their home-baked bread are from their own trees.

We were very sad to leave… Promising ourselves we’d be back.

So thank you God. And thank you Heidi and Werner…

When you come across a property that the owners have lavished care & love on restoring and then they offer it to you as paid accommodation- you have to consider yourself extremely lucky.The Peppertree is all of these and more.The later reviews say it all but the earlier grumpy ones leave you questioning the value of Trip Advisor- my comment to those people is get real- recognize quality when you are privileged to experience it otherwise stay in a motel if you have that sort of budget- you are just bitter sad individuals.We loved everything about Heidi and Werner's home- their Chardonnay,Olive Oil(home produced),magnificent breakfast,garden,extremely comfortable rooms and location- they are true professionals.THEY ARE THE BEST IN THEIR REGION.

This "five-star" B&B just south of Blenheim has a lot going for it -- genial and attentive hosts, good food (much of it grown organically in the back yard garden and orchard), proximity to the Marlborough vineyards and the Picton ferry, But it proved almost twice as expensive as comparable B&Bs we have stayed at, in the "Heritage and Character" group, and it wasn't any better. Particularly annoying on a cold night was to wake up in the morning and realize that the heat had been turned off for the night -- something our hosts insisted was perfectly normal, but did not seem to us a mark of five stars.

A two night stay in early February. The house is very comfortable and well appointed and the hosts, Heidi and Werner, are very welcoming and hospitable. A highlight is the chance to sample Werner’s own wines in the early evening as pre-dinner drinks. We ate in Blenheim both nights in a restaurant called Bacchus, which was very good.
