Haka Tours

1. Copper beech House

As a hostel with that “home away from home” feeling, no wonder this a favourite for a 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 a hard day’s work on the vineyards.

2. Koanui Lodge

Koanui Lodge is often praised for it’s “good vibes”! There’s plenty of space to lounge and meet new people, whether you’re here long-term or just passing through. It has all the basics and essentials for your stay in Blenheim.

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).

4. Biddy Kate’s Backpackers

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 5 acres of backyard to play around in, then this is the place for you. Plus, don’t miss 10 Blenheim Must-Dos.
