1. Copperbeech House

As a hostel with that “home away from home” feeling, no wonder this a favourite for long-term stay. (And let’s be honest, that’s what most of us will be doing in the picking season). Colourful decor, a cosy living room with guitars, and a huge garden – it’s a great place to hang out after hard day’s work on the vineyards.

3. The Grapevine

Aptly named, The Grapevine is popular with seasonal workers and short-term stays alike. This old-style villa has great views of the Opawa River on its decking area – a great place to have a glass of Marlborough wine at the end of the day (if you’re not sick of the sight of it).

A backpackers with an Irish twist – and that twist is the Irish Bar downstairs with some super cheap backpacker meals on offer (meals under NZ$10). If you like to be close to the party, then Biddy Kate’s is the place to be.

5. Duncannon

This backpackers is more aimed towards seasonal workers rather than short-term stays, but if you want a more spacious stay in a grand 98-room complex with a 5 acres of backyard to play around in, then this is the place for you.
