“the place to stay in Blenheim”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2005

Of all the wonderful hotels and guest houses in which we stayed during our trip to New Zealand last year, Old Saint Mary's Convent was # 1. It is set in an impecable 20 odd acres of grass, woodlands with a pond that provides nesting for various birds. Christine, the owner/manager is an absolute jewel, she will arrange day trips, provide advice on which winery to visit (based on your wine preferences), make dinner reservations (if Herzogs is your choice, she will drive you there and Louis, the head chef, will drive you back). One nice touch is that all guests are invited to wine tasting and h'orderves in the study every evening, where one can discuss the day's events and highlights. A cooked breakfast is included in the price. We are going to spend at least one week there on our next trip to that wonderful destination, New Zealand.
