I would stay here again - great value and service, loved the free DVDs. Located well and lots of helpful info about the local area. Obliging about a late check out. Well equipped. Clean and comfortable, nice green garden outlook.

We took our friends there using the getaway package again - it was their 20th anniversary and we were so impressed with our first visit that we thought it would be perfect for them. Unfortunately Tirohana Estate wasn't available so instead we went to Cool Change and that was awesome. We stayed in the spa bath executive units this time and they were great. Very spacious and fabulous linen! The continental breakfast was very good. Claremont is only a 10-15 minute walk from the centre of Martinborough so is really quiet. I would continue to recommend this property. Tina and Brett are perfect hosts.

Room Tip: Any room is a good room.

Rooms well provisioned, good quality soaps etc. There were 4 adults and the room was just fine for us. Nice walk back from town to allow some time for digestion after dinner (20 mins walk). Nice quiet location. Bike hire for the vineyard tour was also a nice tough and we enjoyed our stay.

A very friendly greeting met us at this centre of with studios and apartments. It is out of the centre of a very sleepy small town and is ideal for a quiet place to stay. Our room had a double bed upstairs and a single bed in the spacious lounge diner. It was fully equipped with 4 chairs and all the necessary items to go with that including a 2 ring electric hob and microwave cooker. Beds for 3 eating facilities for four was therefore generous.

A cool early morning was soon warmed up by the very effective fan heater. The bed was large and comfortable and I slept very well. This is not always the case when you are travelling around from hotel to apartment etc.

The room was thoroughly cleaned whilst we were out as you would expect. A good internet service was available for the usual $5 per hour and it connected to high speed broadband which allowed me to do all I needed to in the time purchased. This price is normal for New Zealand but expensive in UK terms

Thank you so much for being so welcoming when we arrived.
the room was clean great linen on the beds, and plenty of thick and thirsty towels. great selection of products in the bathroom.
a good variety of teas and coffee and choice of milk.
the surrondings made it peacful, and you felt like you where in your own private place.
staff offered help with outings, and places to see if needed.
thank you.

Reviewed 10 September 2012

Our studio unit with a queen bed was spacious, stylish, light, and comfortable, with a patio that opens on to a secluded lawn, and gets the afternoon sun. The unit was fairly new, clean, and nicely equipped with a small kitchen, a table and two chairs, a flat screen TV, and a sofa. Maid service was efficient and comprehensive. Electric blankets, heated towel rails, a heated mirror and a couple of patches of under floor heat were welcome touches. WiFi was very expensive at $5/hour, and once you started to use it, you couldn’t stop the clock (there are options that lower the hourly rate). We like the Claremont, which has a number of separate buildings in attractively landscaped grounds, and we enjoyed our stay. This was our second stay, and we would definitely return. We’d like it even more with cheaper (or free) Internet.

We stayed at the Claremont for only one night but found the place very good. The service was great as were the rooms. We only paid 180 $ (NZ) for one night at the medium size cabin with great level of equipment. It was off-season, however, so during high-season I assume that prices would be higher. The location was good too, it only took us about 10 minutes to walk to the center of the village. I would definitely stay at the Claremont again.
