Getting there: Coming to Martinborough from Horowhenua my GPS led me through Akatarawa Road. In hindsight I would avoid travelling this broken, narrow and windy mountain pass at all costs, unless of course you enjoy the heart-thumping adrenaline of not knowing whether someone will come bowling around a blind corner towards you, on a road barely wide enough for one car. It was a relief to finally find myself on the Rimutaka Hill Road, which was wide, newly resurfaced and so much safer. Featherston is the only town you pass through before arriving in Martinborough, with Bakers, a stunning earthy bakery, on the left as you arrive. I had a large smoked chicken, paprika and lettuce sourdough roll for only $5. This bakery also has gourmet pies and sweet pastries. Though they did not have barista coffee, the bakery provided complimentary filter coffee, unconventional, but a refreshing point of difference for the penny conscious traveller.

Location: Martinborough is a tiny boutique wine village in South Waiarapa. The town centre is a cluster of historic buildings dating back to the 1880s. Built in 1882, The Martinborough Hotel, with its grand facade, is impossible to miss, sitting in pride of place at the entrance to the town square.

The hotel's glamour mirrors the town's changes in fortune, but its sense of history remains.
