“Terrific stay, wonderful hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

Our 1 night stay at Rev's Retreat was our first experience in a B & B and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Naomi and Matt are wonderful hosts who were very welcoming and happy to chat or to leave us to our own devices, whichever we preferred. We spent a very comfortable night in the queen room, and in fact the bed was so comfortable that we unexpectedly fell asleep not long after arriving! The breakfast in the morning was lovely. After a few weeks travel away from our own pets, we particularly enjoyed meeting their gorgeous dog Ruby and cat Cohen. A home away from home. We thoroughly recommend a stay at Rev's Retreat.

We had a wonderful weekend away staying with Matt and Naomi. Our room was beautiful and comfortable and Matts home made bread and specially roasted coffee at breakfast was a treat. We wanted to do a cycle wine tour which they helped us organise, and rather than go out that evening we staying in and they cooked us a lovely dinner. They are perfect hosts and we felt very spoilt.

We stayed 1 night in the Queen suite and got far more than we expected. Matt and Naomi are talented and excellent hosts. They have have thought of every detail and we enjoyed every aspect of our stay. Amazing breakfast from the home made bread and jams to their self roasted coffee. We thoroughly recommend anyone to stay there. ...we will be back.

Matt and Naomi were delightfully warm and friendly hosts. Felt completely at home and welcome throughout my stay. Room was spacious and light; very comfortable. Delicious breakfast served each morning. Will absolutely visit for a return visit if I return to the Marlborough region.

I stayed at Rev's Retreat on the 29th May 2013 during a business trip to the Marlborough region. It was the first time that I had stayed at a B&B instead of the usual Hotel/Motel accommodation during my business travels. I was so pleased I did as it felt like a home away from home. Naomi and Matt were wonderful hosts who made me feel so welcome and comfortable. The dinner meal that Matt made was superb, matched with good wine and company. The room was very spacious and the bed was very comfortable. In the morning I was treated to a lovely breakfast that also included home made bread and jams. I will definitely stay here again the next time I travel to Blenheim.
Keep up the great work Naomi and Matt!

We stayed with Matt and Naomi for 2 nights while we were in Blenheim to run the St Clair Vineyard half marathon. They were fantastic hosts, very helpful with all our questions. Breakfast was great, homemade bread was lovely! The room was spotless and really comforatble. We'll definitely be back next time we come to blenheim. Julia and Arpi

We stayed at Rev's Retreat in May while coming to Marlborough for a holiday and do a review on the St Clair Vineyard Half Marathon. We had a delightful stay with a large cosy room upstairs and delicious breakfasts in the morning of homemade bread, jams and preserves and yogurt with fresh fruit. Our hosts Matt and Naomi were extremely friendly and helpful so if we come back down to Blenheim for the Half Marathon next year we will certainly make a booking.
A fab place to stay!

Room Tip: If you want a quiet, large room with a T.V choose the King Size suite
