“Super, smashing, great!”
Reviewed 12 May 2013 via mobile

Fantastic B & B, lovely people, great location for the vineyards. Would recommend making use of the free bikes to cycle around nearby wineries. Hosts were very helpful. Beautiful house and gardens, spotlessly clean room and ensuite. Had a great time and can heartily recommend it.

Stayed May 2013

We spent 2 nights here as part of a 10 day trip in the South Island. Diane was very helpful with some questions we had before we came regarding walks and was able to put us in touch with relevant people. Our stay was very comfortable, breakfasts were delicious and we were able to get some clothes washed and because of the great weather we could dry them outside. Both Diane and Robert are what makes this guest house a home from home. They are very welcoming and offer their beautiful home to us, the guests. We loved the hot tub and we made us of the BBQ on our final night (we got the most amazing meat from the butcher in Renwick, already prepared). Sadly we just didn't have the time to cyle but it is a wonderful extra to have included.

We loved our stay at this B and B, and Robert and Dianne were so helpful. The room was beautifully decorated with many little extras and the garden and hot tub made the stay additionally relaxing. So many roses even in the autumn. Breakfast was excellent with a range of home made preserves and the best coffee. We would recommend this B and B with no reservations.

The location of this B & B is nice, not far from winetasting and with picturesque sheep grazing across the street despite being in a residential area. There's a definite "funky family feeling" about the place which appeals to some people. Our room had a white netting over the bed which seemed a nuisance at times. We stayed for 3 days and though the hosts were very nice, there was not much attention to details. Our room was never cleaned and no trash removed and towels changed upon request. The towels are sundried which is lovely for the smell but very very rough on the skin. Wifi was at times not as efficient as expected. On the positive side, the breakfast was continental but hearty with homemade jams and the coffees were professional and delicious. .

Well we have never had an average review before. Yes it should have that family feeling here as we invite you to share our home and learn how New Zealanders live. A home away from home is the energy we try to project. The white canopy is for decoration and can be draped aside and we have never had negative comments about these in the past . It is our policy to make beds & tidy every day . Then change towels in the summer every second day or as required. We always wait until guests go out for the day to do this . If guests request things to be done out of normal sequence it would appear to them that they needed to ask. All our washing is sun dried it is healthier and more Eco friendly to do so. We are in a rural situation here and do not have super fast Wi-Fi that cities enjoy. But you should acknowledge that it is FREE to guests.
We all need to keep improving ourselves and the tasks we undertake and welcome positive feedback.
Thank you Robert & Diane.

Robert and Diane run an awesome B&B in Marlborough wine country. The B&B and rooms are super clean and comfortable, set amidst a beautiful garden. They will let you borrow bikes to ride to all the nearby wineries. Check out the Gibson Bridge winery nearby if you get a chance. It's a boutique winery run by a really awesome couple. I recommend the Olde Mill for anyone staying in Marlborough. Also, go say hi to Jasper the border collie in the backyard.

Beautiful home set in magnificent gardens....so many pretty flower beds! Numerous home made jams available for breakfast, generous sized rooms, free WiFI, such welcoming hosts - it really was a tranquil stay. Robert and Diane were so accomodating, twice giving us a lift to save us a taxi fare. Add to that the Olde Mill House is surrounded by vineyards, it really was a superb find. Would not hesitate to recommend.

Room Tip: All rooms looked lovely!
