Hotel Review

In the heart of Marlborough wine country sits Antares Homestay. There are three striking octagonal modules set in four acres of landscaped gardens and freshwater ponds with a short woodland walk. With two modern self-contained accommodation choices, The Loft and Ashwell Apartment, both with two bedrooms, a kitchen and living area. They have direct access to the outdoor hot tub and pool, and pretty views across the herb and lemon trees growing in the garden. Anglers and bird watchers will love the Homestay’s close proximity to the Wairau River, a breeding ground for trout and salmon and home to a host of aquatic birds including the rare black-fronted tern. Breakfast is provided, and there are plenty of fine dining options nearby in one of the region’s famous wineries. A peaceful place, and good value too.
