“The bar has been set for B&Bs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2013

We stayed at Hillsfield House during March 2013 and Jo has certainly set the bar for all B&Bs……we are ruined forevermore, in a good way.

Both cottages are absolutely gorgeous and beautifully appointed. Jo and Steve are incredible hosts, nothing was too much trouble & we appreciated the overview of the area as well as recommended local restaurants & tours upon arrival to help get our bearings and make our plans. Jo helped us out with restaurant and tour bookings and I think I want to marry her, she is that charming.

Breakfast is served in the room each morning and it is an extravaganza. Jo pops her head in to check all is ok – my goodness, how could it not be. It’s the little touches like finding a sprig of rosemary on your pillow before bed that makes you smile as well. The bathrooms are also lovely and stocked with organic, local shower gels and shampoos which are lovely. It’s so lovely to wake up & look out your window and see the miniature horses in the paddock and visit the alpacas as well.

A big thank you to Jo for dropping us at a local winery for dinner and to Steve for showing us his fantastic vintage car, very Downton Abbey *swoon*

If you’re after a beautiful and relaxing Marlborough stay, look no further, just book in. And if Hillsfield House is already booked out, change your travel dates.

We stayed at Hillsfield House in April and had both rooms. They were both as beautiful as each other and the delicious breakfast served in the rooms, by Jo, was an added bonus.
The location was tranquil yet only a short drive from restaurants and wineries. A big thank you to Jo for driving us to Hans Herzog Winery for a lovely dinner and for booking the Winery Tour for us.
This is a perfect get away for a peaceful stay in the country.

I strongly recommend this B & B - Jo & Steve made it feel like we were at home. Our first trip without our children and this was exactly the place we needed to stay at. Beautiful breakfast, perfect location, cleanest property and friendly hosts. We even got little extras....beds turned down, bath robes and the yummiest carrot cake for after noon tea and even an offer to be picked up from our night out. You wont regret staying here! Thanks Jo & Steve!

We often avoid B&Bs as we like a bit of anonymity and privacy and generally enjoy the process of finding our way around but after getting a personal referral from friends then reading the reviews online we decided to give Hillsfield House a try. Brilliant decision. Hillsfield House’s two charming rental units are in a separate building from the main house and Jo and Steve are exceptional hosts who provide a wonderful balance between allowing complete privacy and comfort in your own space while also being available pretty much anytime you need them to help make your trip special. After emailing Jo that I was trying to arrange some appointments with local winemakers, she offered me wine maps and local insiders’ insights on the options and even helped me gain an appointment with a wonderful local winemaker that I’d had trouble contacting. While there she also helped me negotiate a challenge with the car rental company. And one night when we decided a bottle of wine and a cozy simple dinner in our room was what we wanted, they even heated up the smorgasbord of take-away we had gathered that day. It’s hard to describe Jo’s warmth and charm without smiling. But there are only two units available so don’t procrastinate. Hillsfield House is the place to stay in Marlborough.

The Hillsfield house is in a great location for visiting the Marlborough area. It is in a beautiful setting. Jo and Steve were both gracious hosts. The room was absolutely delightful. The breakfast was delicious, especially those warm croissants and organic honey. Jo sent us information and suggestions before we arrived that helped in our planning. We toured and went to dinner based on their recommendations and we were never disappointed. It was a real treat for Steve to drive us to dinner in the antique car. We highly recommend a stay here, it will be memorable! Only wish we could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: We stayed in the courtyard room on the same level as the entry. No stairs if that is an issue for yo...

One of the best places we have ever stayed! If you are looking for an amazing bed and breakfast in Marlboroug, look no further.. the only downside we had was not being able to stay long! Jo and Steve were awesome hosts and made us feel very welcome. I could go on and on about how marvelous our stay was but instead ill say try it for yourself, you wont be dissapointed. Thanks again! Kate and John

Where do I start....so much to tell about our stay at Hillsfield B&B, I can't believe it was only 1 night. A warm welcome by Jo, the complementary bikes ready to use when we arrived around noon so we could carry on with our tasting right away. The room was superb with everything you need in a beautiful setting. Steve was so helpful to bring us to the restaurant (Herzog estate bistro, pick this if you'd love a nice setting and good food), thanks again for that nice ride!

After a very good sleep the breakfast was overwhelming, very freshly prepared with love (you can taste that!).

So what makes this B&B really outstanding? Steve and Jo that is, making you feel at home the minute you booked your stay (never recieved such good information beforehand).

Thank you guys!
