“Quaint b&b with good old fashioned service and all the creature comforts you could need”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

A lovely b&b 5 mins outside Blenheim town centre. Ian ( and Dudley the dog) couldn't have been more helpful with suggestions of things to see and do. Stayed in the front 2br annex. Great accommodation for a family. Everything you could possibly need. Bed was super comfy. Both br had lovely en suites. Definitely worth a visit.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

We were in Blenheim for nearly a week for various wedding-related events, and Tresco 'cottage' provided value-for-money retreat with fine host, sociable house-dog and all-round hospitable environment. Comfortable bed, good bathroom, well-stocked mini-kitchen (and - yes Marlborough! - decent wine glasses).
A warning for the carless: If you arrive without a ride, probably not the best location. In fact the entire region not geared for the carless. Local bus services almost non-existent and pretty patchy public transport information hard to get - unexpected in such a deservedly popular area. Having said that, Ian drove us into the town centre when we arrived to an excellent local club where we could dine - now that's service.

Room Tip: Cottage is slightly cheaper and offers privacy & kitchen, but for a shorter stay than ours, I...

We stayed here two nights. The bed was so comfortable, room was clean and bathroom was modern. The highlight would be the excellent breakfast, including fresh homemade croissants! Ian (the host) also helped us with booking the best winery tour in the region, and was full of local knowledge and experience.

We stayed one night at this great B&B, as soon as we arrived we were greeted warmly by Ian. The bedroom was great, king bed that was super comfortable.
In the morning we met Wendy and had a great breakfast with them, and they were happy to tell many stories and point us to many things that we could do on our South Island trip. Great advice too.

Our overall experience was awesome with them :).

We stayed one night in this B&B and loved it. Room was clean with big king comfy bed and large bathroom. We slept really well as the B&B was off the main road and extremely quiet. The bed too was so comfortable that I struggled to get up in the morning! The owner, Ian, is charming and helped us decide on our next NZ adventure. Fruit for breakfast from the garden, homemade yummy yogurt and fresh hot bread for breakfast was delicious. We loved playing with our mate, Dudley, Ian's little terrier. Hope he found his ball!? We would return. Very good value for money and very cozy.

Room Tip: There are various options at this B&B. There is a stand alone cottage and 2 bedroom room with ki...

We stayed one night at this B&B, the location is close enough to be able to walk into Blenheim town centre (10 - 15 mins walk), and also to be able to access the vineyards (only a short distance to cycle/drive).

The room was of good standard, with comfortable bed, and excellent bathroom facilities. Our host (Ian) couldn't have been more friendly & accommodating, & gave out great information & a wonderful breakfast with delicious freshly baked bread being the highlight.

It is reasonably priced, & I would certainly stay here again.

We statyed two nights over labour weekend October 2013. The cottage was lovely, beautiful ben linen and comfortable beds. We cooked inside and ate on the lovely little deck overlooking Ians garden which had an outdoor setting, hammock and a bbq for guests to use.
Would definitely stay here again. Nice and peaceful and a great base for exploring the Marlborough wine region.

Room Tip: The cottage is great for couples or two singles.
