Taking pride of place at the entrance to the square is The Martinborough Hotel. Developer Edmund Buckeridge described it in 1882 as “one of the finest hostelries ever erected in any inland town in New Zealand.” A way station for prosperous travellers to and from the South Wairarapa’s huge, isolated sheep stations, its grand façade has been a focal point for the town right from the early days.

In the early nineteen eighties the wine pioneers discovered that Martinborough’s soil and microclimate are perfect for grape growing. The wine industry grew and the hotel was fully restored in 1996. Martinborough soon made a name for itself as a centre for good food and good wine by visitors and locals alike.

Martinborough Hotel still holds a sense of history and place, that will charm guests as soon as they step in the front door - from the battered suitcase of a gentleman traveller at the bottom of stairs, to the sloping floors and olden day sketches of local personalities adorning the walls. Today The Martinborough Hotel offers character, comfort and old style personal attention combined.

20 colonial-style guest rooms overlook the village, private gardens and surrounding mountain range. Guests can enjoy a delicious continental café breakfast at a Martinborough café from 8am or a continental breakfast basket can be delivered to guests rooms the night of their stay. Relax and unwind in the Guest Library or wander through the private, picturesque courtyard garden.

Martinborough Hotel is located right in the heart of Martinborough Wine Village, surrounded by village boutiques, eateries and award winning wineries. Guests can indulge in seasonal hearty country cuisine at the hotel’s restaurant.
