Marlborough, New Zealand
A gorgeous historic convent converted into a luxurious boutique hotel in the heart of Marlborough's wine country.
Experience the relaxed elegance of The Marlborough. Located at the top of the South Island, outside the town of Blenheim, this grand country estate is nestled amongst 6.5 hectares (16 acres) of park like grounds and is surrounded by Marlborough’s famous Sauvignon Blanc vineyards. A chapel sits alongside the main building and is now home to a bar and lounging area, itself connected to a large outdoor fireplace for evening wines. Just beyond is a refreshing pool for Marlbrough’s characteristic hot sunny days.
The property has ten modern, stylish, and well furnished rooms spread over two levels. Some rooms have direct access to the wraparound deck and all have views over the manicured grounds. The large ensuite bathrooms are bright and modern, some with huge standalone bathtubs.
A vineyard makes up part of The Marlborough's grounds, growing world-famous Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc grapes.

We have been blown away by everything - hotels, food, people, golf, wine - the list is endless. You did an amazing job
Planning a 7 week trip is daunting enough without the complications of COVID cancellations, rebookings, and closures. Yet every connection, every transportation detail, every accommodation, every meal, everything was flawless.
From our arrival in Sydney .. to our last stop in Queenstown .. we will carry with us the best memories of our trip and all of your efforts. The incredible private boat tours .. the bespoke wine tours with the best guides .. our accommodations .. and the excellent itinerary and pacing, made for a perfect trip.
We can't thank Southern Crossings enough for making this trip all, and more, than we had imagined. You allowed us to see the best of your countries: the people, the beauty, the culture. Five stars, a blue ribbon, and a gold medal to everyone at Southern Crossings!
Your country, its people and your team could not have made us feel more welcome.
Thank you for all the special moments you enabled us to experience.
