“Beautiful View”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2012

Omaka Heights (O/H) came recommended to us by friends who had stayed there a few years earlier. O/H was warm and cozy and came with a private patio to sip wine and watch the valley below.The spacious room was very clean and neat with the bath ensuite. If you enjoy animals you will love the Alpacas which are fun to watch and feed. We had a very restful and relaxing 4 nights thanks to our host and hostess Robin and Nancy who were very accommodating and helpful with planning our days. This place is smack dab in the middle of the Marlborough wine country. There are dozens of cellar doors (quite a few with food available), so if you're into tasting great wine this is the place to start. The nearby town of Blenheim has plenty of good restaurants to choose from.

My only detraction is they need to upgrade the small tely in the sitting room.

We highly recommend the flight museum nearby, it's well worth the price.

Clean, comfortable rooms with beautiful views of the hills of Omaka. We loved staying on a farm, seeing the alpaca, and chatting with the gracious hosts. Nibbles and wine are provided in the late afternoon/evening, which is a perfect way to relax after biking around the vineyards.

What a wonderful view, location and absolutely friendly, welcoming hosts. We stayed for two nights...it was the perfect location for touring the wine district in Marlborough, we highly recommend it. Blenheim is only a 5 minute drive...wineries on your doorstep. Wake up to spectacular mountain views....and a few Alpaca's grazing by. Don't bother staying in town, this is the best place to stay and has everything you need, inluding delicious breakfasts!!!

Room Tip: Either rooms would be fine, they both have spectacluar views.

My wife and I stayed with Robin and Nancy for four nights. We used the B & b as a base to tour the north of the South Island including the Nelson and Kaikoura areas as well as the more immediate wineries. It proved easy to get to all the places we wanted to although the location is a few kilometres outside of Blenheim . That was generally a plus point as far as we were concerned because it meant we had superb views over the countryside, including vineyards and the more distant mountains, it was quiet and peaceful and we were unimpressed by Blenheim itself but it did mean a drive to go for an evening meal.
The use of the small guest lounge was a bonus and it acts as a meeting place for both sets of guests. Breakfast was cooked to order and was sufficient enough that we had no need for lunch. Robin provided us with good advice relating to the wineries to visit and other aspects relating to our stay. We also enjoyed seeing the alpacas up close.
We believe that Omaka Heights deserves to be higher rated than it is currently in the TripAdvisor ratings.

We really enjoyed our stay at this bed and breakfast and we even decided to stay one day longer. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is great, the rooms are nice, but do not expect anything fancy.
The view over the vineyards is amazing and very centrally located in malborough and close to the vineyards. We would recommend this B&B to everybody!!!!

We loved Omaka Heights with its resident alpacas, beautiful outlook and very comfortable rooms. The views from the panoramic french windows of our room and the communal guest area were superb over the alpaca pastures, the vineyards to the distant mountains. Our host were discrete but very helpful, the food was lovely and plentiful. Highly recommended. We used this as our last stay on South Island before we flew from Benheim to Wellington. This has to be the best way to cross the Cook Strait, rather than the 3 hour ferry ride but, if you do, don't miss visiting Picton which is a lovely spot.

Our stay at Omaka Heights was wonderful. We had an incredible view from our room where we would enjoy the sunset with a bottle of wine each night. Nancy and Robin are great hosts. It was such a comfortable and cozy place to stay- we felt like we were staying with family. It was also fun to learn about the alpacas..We would recommend this place to anyone.
