The Marlborough Lodge
Scale of 90-100
Built in 1901, this historic former convent with 10 rooms is centered on 16 lavender-strewn manicured acres, complete with vineyards, heritage trees and lily-covered ponds. The premium Kingfisher Suite (#10), with its octagonal shape and vaulted ceiling, has kept most of its original architectural details, including stained glass, gothic windows and French doors opening onto a balcony overlooking the scenic landscape. Period moldings, doors and an intricately carved staircase are fashioned from native New Zealand timbers. These period details serve as a reminder of the history of this now thoroughly updated country house hotel. Amenities include a charming Great Room, an excellent restaurant for seasonal cuisine, grass tennis courts and an outdoor heated pool. The hotel does not permit children under the age of 8.
Good to Know
Sauvignon Blanc grapes are grown on-site, and vineyard tours led by the head gardener (followed by a glass of wine) can be arranged.
