This is a unique country house hotel in a beautiful setting. Peter and Alex are friendly and thoughtful hosts and Alex's cooking is just as delicious as advertised. We thoroughly enjoyed Peter's wine region tour too.

The Ugbrooke estate is a beautiful place quietly settled in the vineyards. The hosts were more than accommodating and very down to earth. I would highly recommend it for a peaceful get away or a stay while checking out the Marlborough wine region.
