My wife and I recently had the pleasure of staying at Straw Lodge while we were visiting the Marlborough region. This is a special B & B, built by the owners as part of their small winery.
They have obviosly put a lot of effort into creating a very comfortable, visually appealing place to stay.
Make sure you make use of the hot tub and barbecue area while you are there.
The room we were in was a very spacious suite that entered into a shaded patio and beyond that lawn ad vines.
The qwners go out of their way to be hospitable, with great info on the area, etc. When we were there you had the choice of contnental breakfast or cooked breakfast. Very good food. They know what they are doing.
Let me add that the wine they make is very drinkable.
