We stayed here for 2 nights in the standard room (Winemakers cottage).
The property is situated a 10-15 minute walk outside the centre square of Martinborough, next to a vineyard (not sure which one) and across the road for Nga Waka's vineyards. Despite being outside the town centre, the nice thing is Martinborough is very small and most of the wineries are close together.
When we stayed the place was pretty empty, so I was quite surprised they didn't upgrade us to a room with a view. The room itself is very nice, although the view is of the other rooms. Nice bathroom with fireplace and good heating. Also very clean and quite self-contained.
We hired bikes for the day, and I thought the price of $30/day for bike hire was pretty steep (I assumed it would be included, and I'd say the bike itself wasn't worth much more than the daily fee!). Despite this, riding around the wineries was great fun and highly recommended!
Breakfast was included and was good.
Overall I did like this place, but I think next time I go to Martinborough I'll try to stay in a winery or somewhere a bit more personal.
