Hotel Overview


About a five-minute drive from Blenheim in the South Island’s northeastern corner.

Rooms at The Peppertree

The Peppertree presents five beautifully-appointed luxury suites, individually designed and cosily furnished. The antique wardrobes, roaring fires, and claw-feet baths speak sophistication while the balconies and verandas display fantastic views across the orchards, vineyards and olive groves inside The Peppertree’s 10 acres.

Food and facilities

Blenheim, five minutes from The Peppertree, has a stash of welcoming restaurants specialising in hearty New Zealand cuisine. Most menus revolve around fresh local produce and lip-smacking seafood dishes; and no eatery in Marlborough would be worth its salt without a stellar wine menu.

Activities at The Peppertree

Wine-tasting takes pride of place on this region’s list of musts, so be sure to sample a few before selecting your favourite. The rolling rural surrounds can be explored via horse treks, fishing trips, helicopter rides and scenic flights; or you can simply stroll the country lanes and find a charming cafe. A sunny day at The Peppertree will include a lazy game of croquet or boules and dip in the outdoor pool.
