Altitude 1 - Luxury in the heart of Martinborough.

 It was a great stay. Right in the middle of the village so easy to get to all shops and cafes. Fantastic accommodation with lovely furnishings and very tastefully decorated. No problems at all with noise at night. Everything worked like clockwork including the bike ride. Will definitely be staying again. Thank you.....
