“Comfortable and homely”
Reviewed 28 December 2010

We stayed in Martinborough for only one evening and found the Oak House very pleasant.
The large bedroom contained a very big and comfy bed.
The house itself is a stunning old building with original wood interiors and breakfast was served in a spacious dining room.
It is a short walk to the centre of Martinborough and surrounding wineries.
Our hosts were kind and welcoming and we wished we could have stayed longer.

What a great find this homestay B&B is. It is listed on the bnb.co.nz website, which I've used before with good luck. Since there are only a few rooms, bookings are advised. Very conveniently located for a winetasting excursion to Martinborough. I took the train/bus combination from Wellington (there is a bus stop right outside). Martinborough is dead flat and you can easily walk or bike between wineries (which helps pace tastings). If you are really a wine enthusiast you'll have an opportunity to learn a lot from the owners, the Burings, who have some 40 years in the wine business, and will welcome you with samples of some of their own excellent vintages (Burings of Martinborough). Breakfasts are a highlight, fresh local fruits, homemade preserves and lemon curd, croissants, and tastings of NZ honeys..displayed in vintage majolica and served in a beautiful dining room. The house is a 1920s villa made of heartwood rimu. Three friendly cats live here...although they are kept out of the bedrooms. Really lovely hosts and you'll leave feeling as if you've made new friends. Dinner can be provided ...and is worth it.! Pricing was very very reasonable.
