The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Escape - - WHAT’S YOUR BUDGET MARLBOROUGH - MVH.CO.NZ

OVERNIGHT RATE FROM $NZ185 (ABOUT $165) VINE­YARD VIEW

You’ll be ex­cused for hav­ing wine on your mind when staying at Marl­bor­ough Vintners Ho­tel (well, when staying any­where in this epi­cen­tre of vino pro­duc­tion, re­ally). Pull up to one of 16 suites set among orderly vines in cen­tral Blen­heim, with views across to the Richmond Ranges. Hire bikes and fol­low Marl­bor­ough’s Golden Mile to taste your way through the vine­yards. The Omaka Avi­a­tion Her­itage Cen­tre is also a five-minute drive away. There’s plenty of room to spread out in your suite with king-sized bed, lounge and din­ing area, and kitch­enette with tea and cof­fee mak­ing fa­cil­i­ties. En­joy your pur­chases over­look­ing the vines on your pri­vate pa­tio, then head to the on­site Vintners Room Restau­rant where French ex­ec­u­tive chef Ar­naud Mal­let turns out blue-cheese stuffed mus­sels and duck-fat pota­toes.
