Exceptional host & beautiful building

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 28 Apr 2024via mobile
Spent two nights here towards the start of our honeymoon. It is a very impressive building with beautiful grounds including a small vineyard where they produce their own wine (Chardonnay) which is delicious (we bought a bottle to drink whilst there and bought one to take home with us).
Heidi is very welcoming, personable and knowledgeable about the area. Upon arrival she showed us to our room (the William Morris Suite) and then provided a number of dinner recommendations. After we'd had a look, and at our request she booked us a table at Scotch Bar (also recommend) in town and ordered a taxi for us.
The following day she liaised directly with our tour company as due to weather conditions we had to alter our plans.
That evening we had one of Heidi's platters for dinner in the front drawing room next to an open fire.
Breakfast was served in the dining room, our first morning we ate with two other couples, the second morning we were the only guests. Heidi puts on a large spread with continental style breakfast including authentic Swiss muesli, as well as a cooked breakfast option and kept us well topped up with coffee.
Our room was very spacious with a large bathroom with a stand alone bath. It had everything we needed including tea/coffee making facilities and a fridge/mini bar. It also had it's own outdoor seating area
I had seen mention of a gym previously but could find no sign of it whilst staying here in the room literature. That said, I would not have had time to use it at any rate!
There is plenty of places to sit in the grounds, including on the front veranda and in the vineyard, however due to poor weather we were unable to enjoy this.

Not sure I would agree that this is luxury accommodation. It is OK but looking somewhat tired. Heidi is very welcoming and clearly loves her property. We had good access to a comfortable lounge area. The room was fairly dark with old fashioned dark wood furniture. The bathroom had everything we needed but a window with a path outside so people passing could look in - there was a curtain but we needed to open the window after showering to let the steam out. Breakfast provided some cold meat and cheeses along with yoghurt and fresh fruit - the figs in honey were especially good. Coffee seemed to be instant and was served with milk to the table - we would have preferred a cafetiere. Even when we ordered a pot of tea the next day, it was brought to the table and Heidi poured a cup without giving time for it to brew. A laundry service was available but quite expensive at $30 a bag.

Elegant single storey property set in its own gardens, orchard and small vineyard. Heidi was an exceptional hostess and we weren't disappointed when we took her recommendations for tours and restaurants. Abundance of home grown and home made products available for breakfast.

Room tip: Brits may like to ask for their tea to be extra strong.

A wonderful boutique hotel hosted by Heidi and Werner. One of the warmest welcomes we've ever experienced with tea and homemade cakes. The location is excellent for walks right from the house and convenient for Blenheim and local vineyards. The Peppertree gardens and lovely. The breakfasts are cooked to order and are perfect.

Sorry to say this lovely property is living on past glory’s. Whilst the property itself is lovely the Garden Room we stayed in is firmly staying in the 80’s. The bed which was two singles making a king was at least 20+ years old which makes sense given the top magazine on the bedside table was dated 2009. Once 5 Star l am sure but at the price being charged you can do better elsewhere. Heidi was lovely however we were not introduced to Werner which was unusual for a B&B.

A warm welcome and a wonderful stay await anyone lucky enough to stay at the Peppertree on a tour of New Zealand. Book a platter for dinner in the evening and enjoy a good breakfast with home baking in the morning. Try a bottle of wine made from their own vineyard
