“Fantastic all round experience!”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

We stayed at the Saddlery for a weekend away and can't talk more highly of the experience. Steve and Sandra are wonderful hosts and the house is amazing! It has been lovingly restored and looks incredible. The breakfast includes homemade muesli, handmade jams and spreads and bread/rolls fresh from the bakery.

We stayed in the Garden View room and it was fantastic. The room is huge, filled with afternoon sun and a view out over the garden below. The king bed was super comfy and the bathroom spacious and new, with carefully chosen fittings in keeping with the historic feel of the house. Everything was also immaculately clean. What more could you ask for?!

The house is perfectly located (on the main street, and only a couple of minutes walk from the shops and restaurants).

We really enjoyed our stay at the saddlery, everything was fantastic! We stayed in the shop room which had the old school bath, very comfortable bed and everything we needed was there. Very boutique and old school I highly recommend this as a great escape from anywhere!
Steve was a wonderful host who dropped us off in Martinborough so we could do all the wine tastings over there and when we were ready he came and picked us up, thank you so much!!
We had the continental breakfast where it wasn't a typical canned fruit and boxed sugar cereals..but it was an amazing homemade muesli, fresh fruit, homemade jams to go with wholesome toast and warmed croissants, yoghurt, everything which will power us through the day.
The decor and garden were so pretty and homely we didn't want to leave!! Hope to be back sometime soon, this is a top of the list place to stay at, such wonderful hosts:) thank you again guys!! Christie & Clarke

We loved staying at The Saddlery. Can't say enough about how splendid this homestay is. A short 2min walking distance to all the gorgeous Greytown shops and restaurants. We enjoyed the traditional German breakfast which we recommend. That was all after a great afternoon enjoying the relaxing flower gardens and an evening of sound sleep. But watch out for those cheeky native birds in the plum tree, they bombed our breakfast table with a couple of plums! It was both funny and delightful. Overall AAA+ the best bed & breakfast honestay ever,

Room Tip: There are 3 rooms. We stayed in the spacious Garden View room but they are all exquisite with ensuit...

We stayed at The Saddlery over the long weekend. It was the first time we'd taken our baby away so we were very much looking forward to a break together. We had such a lovely time. Sandra and Steve made us feel so welcome and are such a lovely couple. The house was absolutely lovely, beautifully refurbished and so much thought had been put into all the little details - lovely products in the shower, gorgeous fresh flowers and even homemade candles! We had both the continental breakfast and the traditional German breakfast and the food was fantastic. The fact that a lot of it was also homemade made it that bit more special. We would totally recommend The Saddlery and will look forward to returning.

We stayed at The Saddlery last Saturday night and had an amazing time. From the moment we arrived we knew we were in good hands: the hosts, Sandra and Steve, were genuinely kind and hospitable and made us feel welcome in their home. The house is simply amazing, beautifully decorated and furnished – each room has a different theme. We stayed in the ‘Garden View’ room, a spacious and luxurious room with the softest bed I’ve ever slept on :) Cute Christmas décor was also on show in the house, bringing some Christmas cheer to our evening there. Breakfast was plentiful, I highly recommend the home-made jams, don’t leave without trying those! :)
Happy to recommend this place to anyone looking for a Greytown or Wairarapa getaway or who simply wants to sit back and relax in a beautiful garden while enjoying great hospitality. We will definitely be back!

I had a fantastic time with my family during our stay at the Saddlery B&B in Greytown. Our 5 year old daughter loved the big garden with the amazing variety of flowers. We stayed in the upper rooms and enjoyed it very much. The hosts Sandra and Steve were so welcoming and made our stay to a real home away from home. We all loved it and hope to come back soon!
