“Beautiful and peaceful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

We stayed here as part of our "babymoon", one last relaxing weekend away before the little one arrives. The service from start to finish was wonderful and we were thrilled when we walked into our secluded cottage - beautifully decorated and so so comfortable. Nothing here is done in halves - a really calm and quiet environment. The bed was ridiculously comfortable with gorgeous linen - being heavily pregnant I don't count on good sleeps lately but I was out to it. The cedar hot tub out on the deck was an absolute treat and even the shower is worth raving about! Food at the restaurant is divine, in particular I LOVED the duck, have never tasted anything so good! Breakfast was delicious, sorry to all others who came to breakfast that morning, it was me who ate all the danishes - although staff regularly replenished everything. The staff were naturally friendly and efficient. Cant recommend this place enough if like us, you just want to get away from everyone and everything for a weekend. Thank you Peppers Parehua

Room Tip: We booked a Secluded Cottage and it lived up to its name. Has a cedar hot tub also which was icing...

I cannot recommend this place enough - for the price we paid, I think you would struggle to get better value elsewhere. The room was absolutely BEAUTIFUL and thoughtfully designed with a large, comfortable bed, and good solid walls meaning that you are not bothered by noises coming from outside or the neighbouring room. The furnishings are very tasteful & it felt luxuriant. There was also a lovely private seating area accessed by sliding patio doors; we sat there one evening, and it was such a clear night we could watch shooting stars. In addition to all of this, I really liked that all the accommodation is wheel-chair accessible, so anyone could stay there without a problem.

The facilities are also great; there is a large swimming pool, pavilion bar, tennis court, petanque area, and croquet. In addition to this, the staff were really friendly, particularly the team working in the restaurant. They chatted to us at each meal and were just so friendly & approachable.

We would absolutely love to stay here again - a real highlight of our holiday.

We stayed in a secluded cottage (Room 5) for 1 night and we wish we had booked longer. The inside of the cottage was luxurious, clean, beautiful décor, comfortable bed, robes and slippers, nice big bathroom, separate toilet, two TV's - one in the lounge the other in the bedroom and well equipped kitchen. The cedar spa pool was very private on the deck. We also experience the Table d'Hote progressive dinner - OMG divine food! We have dine at Wharekauhau Lodge and have to say, food was better at Peppers. And the breakfast did not disappoint with a selection of cereal, fresh fruit and cooked buffet. This is the perfect place to stay for a romantic getaway or to recharge your batteries. We will definitely be back.

The welcome was warm and professional, helpful and efficient. Our cottage was perfect. Calm decor, understated luxury and comfort. The bed and quality linen was divine!
Dinner was excellent with each course beautifully presented and delicious. Truly 5 star service too - smilingly discreet and efficient.
Buffet breakfast did not disappoint with a wide choice of cereal and fresh fruits. The melons were mouthwatering! Cooked buffet was freshly replenished frequently and delicious too.
We loved our stay at Peppers Parehua and heartily recommend it. It is worth every penny!

Room Tip: I am sure all the cottages are tops. Privacy ensured by strategic plantings, quiet and beautiful.

Our garden cottage was well laid out and very clean. It was very private and extremely quiet for a weekend away. Breakfast was included and there was a good selection of cereals and also cooked breakfast. This place is about a 10 min walk from town set in the countryside with a nice walk or bike ride to the many wineries located close by. Quite expensive accommodation but worth the extra cost. If feeling fit you can also have a game of tennis or a swim in the clean pool. We look forward to returning soon.

I took my wife away for her birthday for two nights as a surprise to Peppers. I have to say that we had a fantastic weekend and will be back again. I booked a lakeside villa on recommendation of the staff. In the price a breakfast on both days was included in the package. We found the staff were great, where they were attentive but without being over attentive. We dined in on both evening's at Peppers also. The meals were of excellent quality and the staff were great with friendly service. As my wife had a different main to mine we asked for a wine recommendation from our waiting staff. The waitress recommended a bottle of a local Martinborough Pinot Noir. The match was perfect with our meal.
Our accommodation was very well appointed and found it very relaxing and peaceful. The villa was screened with native shrubs. The bedroom had a great king size bed and was super comfy along with a good size couch in the living area.
In general, we found that any thing we required was done with no problems and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We will be returning in the near future of our wedding anniversary, such was the great weekend that we had.

We chose to stay at Peppers Parehua Martinborough for a peaceful, relaxing weekend and the cottage that we stayed in was perfect.

The cottages are very private with tall green hedgerows and fences. The cottages are of a very high quality standard and have space and the comforts of home e.g. large, soft comfy sofas and chairs, good size kitchen, good size bathroom, spacious bedroom with large bed. The TV [although a small screen] was good because you could turn it around from the lounge into the bedroom [very convenient]. The bathroom had a walk-in shower [no door] which was great and had the required amount of toiletries. The cottage was serviced daily [we stayed two days].

The swimming pool was very good as it was summer the water was warm not sure if it is a 'heated pool' and ok for winter.

The weekend buffet that came in the "B&B" price was very good - cooked well and lots of variety. Only downfall was one "very slow cooking" toaster. Needed another toaster to cope with the weekend volume of people.

Really enjoyed our stay - secluded cottage, very private, well appointed quality cottage and had a relaxing stay.

"Yes" we would definitely stay at Peppers Martinborough again

Room Tip: Winemakers cottage is good size for a couple and cheaper
