  • Not quite 5 star, but about 4

    Not quite 5 star, but about 4.7! So close to the Square and Martinborough's eating places. It's a lovely little studio, perfect for a weekend, but it is small so perhaps better for shorter stays. Nice outside area with BBQ and quite private. Don't miss the "window on the straw bale wall" in the second bedroom, a glimpse of its different construction. And it has a carport. Recommended. Thanks Bruce, next time we need a M/boro retreat you're the one.

  • Excellent location close to town

    Excellent location close to town. Very quiet. Only issue was sometimes difficult to drain wet room. Lovely place and very well kitted out.

  • Location is fantastic - walking distance to Martinborough square and wineries

    Location is fantastic - walking distance to Martinborough square and wineries. As others have commented, the bathroom is less than ideal. The bathroom is a wet room, however, it does not drain well. The rest of the studio is very spacious and well appointed. A very enjoyable stay :)
