“Very Convenient”
Reviewed 28 March 2013 via mobile

Large rooms. No ac. The windows cross vent well. Privacy with windows open, well...
Love The close location and no being directly on the main drag. Much less noise. Cute private gardens and the bathroom is large!

Thank you very much for your comments about Pinot Villas, Mollie. The location IS perfect for people to wander 100 metres into town for a drink or meal - it makes it so easy instead of jumping into the car to drive into town. The villas are a good size and we endeavour to make them like a "home away from home" for the comfort of all guests. In NZ, ac is not standard and if we were to install it we would then be rated 5 star which would then relate to a higher tariff. We will look into this option. Hope that you return to NZ in the future and we would welcome you back to stay at Pinot Villas.

Spent a night, little cottage/villa well suited for a longer stay. Very short walk to the very small but nice township of Martinborough for drinks or meal. Also very worth taking the 25min drive out to Lake Ferry for fish n chips at the lovely little pub.
One warning about the Villas - if your life revolves around internet access, this might be a problem. Even after moving around the the Villas property as suggested by the management, we could not log in either of 2 devices to the net. However it turned out it was good to have a night off!

Thank you, Andrew, for your very positive comments posted about your stay at Pinot Villas. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Martinborough and look forward to your return in the future. Regarding the Wifi - apologies for the lack of connection. We have experienced a couple of incidences lately where access has been a problem (with i pads and/or i phones). With these devices the antennae are not as good as a laptop so since your departure we have employed the "experts" who have installed devices to improve the Wifi signal throughout the complex and now everything is working perfectly for all devices. Thanks for your understanding and we hope you enjoyed the time "away from the computer".

Stayed here with my girlfriend for a night. The owner couldn't have been nicer and helpful.
The rooms were really good quality with everything you could need. A minute walk to the shops and wine centre and within walking distance of several wineries.

Highly recommend

Beautiful accomodation - spacious and very comfortable. Just a few minutes walk to the centre of Martinborough. Very friendly welcome despite us having accidentally booked for March instead of Feb, and therefore we were not expected! - luckily there was one room left that we could have.

Difficult to find enough words to praise Pinot Villas! I've just returned from a whistle stop North Island tour and the Villas were the accommodation highlight by a mile. Our villa was immaculate and much thought had clearly gone in to planning the layout and setting the ambience. The owner, Ian, was friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We were in the two rooms next to reception, really a part of the house. The others looked to be more...

Great villas in a nice garden setting. Also located close to the Martinbourough Square which is a bonus. Our villa was very clean and tidy with all the facilities we needed, as well as some usefull extras like umbrellas and CD/DVD selections. Ian was a friendly host. Would certainly stay again.

My stay at Pinot Villas as absolutely lovely. I walked to the hotel from bus stop and was immediately pleased with my choice. The room was spacious, clean, and luxurious. The jacuzzi was perfect after a day of wine tasting and rooming around the town.
