Wine. Dine. Sleep

From historic country pubs and family-run homestays, to relaxing retreats and vineyard views, you’ll find the perfect place to rest your head the length of the Trail.

Wining, dining and sightseeing can be tiring so make sure your accommodation along the way adds relaxation to your journey.

Start with a luxury lodge in Hawke’s Bay followed by a boutique retreat in the Wairarapa, then add a five-star hotel in the capital city and end with a night among the vines in Marlborough - you’ll have yourself a luxurious culinary journey.

Staying at a bed and breakfast or farmstay is a great way to get closer to Kiwi culture, and if you’re a keen cook, make the most of the farmers’ markets and artisan food producers and choose accommodation with kitchen facilities.
