The Martinborough Hotel

The Martinborough Hotel - External 2 Night.

Hand-Picked Hotel

The Martinborough Hotel is jam-packed with charm and cosy corners – the perfect base if you’re visiting Wairarapa wine region.

If old-world charm is high on your wish list, the historic Martinborough Hotel will fit the bill and then some. In the heart of North Island’s wine country, this boutique hotel has a striking Victorian-style façade and wraparound balcony. It’s equally impressive inside, with high ceilings, timber floors and a grand staircase dating back to 1882. Comfort and character are the name of the game here. Curl up on the sofa in the Kitchener Library, with its vast collection of books to be thumbed through at leisure. Or kick back and relax in the guest rooms, each dressed to the nines in a zing of contemporary colour mixed with traditional touches. Step outside and you’ll discover a private courtyard garden that’s calling out for an ice-cold glass of rosé among the roses. After a long day exploring the region’s wineries, be sure to book a table at the hotel’s bistro, Union Square. Its talented chef will serve you up mouth-watering modern fare with a French influence – think pea risotto with goats’ cheese or scallop and chive tortellini. You can also grab breakfast, lunch and weekend brunch at this highly acclaimed restaurant.

Local Area

Martinborough wine village in South Wairarapa is located just over an hour from New Zealand’s capital, Wellington – it’s the perfect base for exploring the region’s award-winning vineyards by bike. Not a wine fan? Not a problem. This quaint community is also the ideal spot for outdoor adventures, along with a variety of tempting eateries and boutiques galore. When it comes to Pinot Noir et al, the local winemakers certainly know their stuff – and they’re more than happy to share their knowledge during a guided wine tour. While there are many cellar doors to choose from, perhaps start with Colombo Wines where you can pair wood-fired pizza with a crisp Sauvignon Blanc al fresco. Soak in the relaxed pace of life this rural neighbourhood is famed for. You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to retail therapy – you can shop for special gifts, homewares or even treat yourself. Further afield, you can get your steps in on the picturesque Patuna Chasm walk or venture to Lake Ferry for some net-fresh fish and chips.
