We stayed for two nights in the private suite at Whangaimoana, an impressive sitting room and comfortable bedroom made us almost unwilling to go on our Martinborough wine tour! Our hostess Jacqui Sutherland was very kind and accomodating. We spent a pleasant evening exploring the lovely gardens. Jacqui even showed us her private sitting room, the largest most impressive room in the house. Martin Priestley.
Grand old house with high ceilings and lots of varnished hardwood flooring/walls. Comfortable, well equipped rooms with en-suite. Tea making facilities and fridge. Good selection of reading material. Our hostess, Jacqui, made us feel very welcome. The dining room/guest lounge has a homely atmosphere with TV although we never had time to use it. Breakfast was excellent. We had poached eggs and bacon. Recommended.
Quite possibly one of the loveliest places I have ever stayed. The cottage is just delightful - the fire was lit before I arrived and the beautiful cottage garden made for a lovely welcome, along with homemade lemon cake and fresh flowers. The cottage was very cosy and equipped with everything you could possibly need. It has a comfy bed and I had a great night's sleep, waking up to glorious sunshine and pretty views of the garden from every window. Hosts were charming - gave me a tour of the big house and also cuttings to take home for my garden. Absolutely loved my stay and can't wait to come back again!
A wonderful place to stay while enjoying the many local attractions that Martinborough has to offer. Jacqui our host offers a wonderful insight into the local history and places of interest to visit. We arrived late in the evening to a welcoming fire and lovely afternoon tea. The following morning a where served a wonderful cooked and continental breakfast with delicious home made condiments. This is a magnificent heritage home and property and a garden lovers delight, complete with tame kuni kuni pigs, ducks and geese! We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 days at Whangimoana, thank-you Jacqui and Alistair. Kim and Helen
