We come to Blenheim often and enjoy Aorangi. Our host is friendly and keen to be of service, reminding us he is there in case we need anything. The unit is immaculate, soft tones are calming, just what I needed after a long trip. The red brick and green roof appeals from the road and it is so close to... More

Dated decor and one small noisy heater in room. Owner decanted milk for coffee himself to glass bottle so couldn't be too sure of hygiene. Quite a bit of road noise. Couch low to floor and worn out. Owner not that friendly and place quite expensive compared with other places with better facilities in town.

We booked this motel be chance on our way down through the wine region of Marlborough and found it one of the best we had stayed in to date. It's close to Blenheim town centre to walk out for a meal, the rooms are large and Colin offers a great breakfast delivered to your room. Colin recommended a wine tour... More

I stay at this motel every time I stay in Blenheim, this has totalled to 6. My experiences have been indifferent- happy enough to go back. Unfortunately my most recent stay there left me very disappointed. I bought a crayfish that day and was looking forward to cooking it that night for dinner. I paid for a studio at this... More

Hi Kelly, Thank you for taking the time to tell us of your experience. We're sorry that you weren't happy but there seems to have been a break down in communication, as when you asked about frying pans you told us you wanted to cook an egg for your breakfast. This was why we explained that the studios didn't have... More

My partner and I stayed this Christmas break. Our room was large, clean and the overall impression to us was how it felt so welcoming. The pool was always clean and ready to use. The owners were always available for a chat or service enquiry. An overall good stay. I highly recommend this motel!

We arrived from the Picton ferry at 1am, the owner had stayed up to check us in and we were greeted with a warm smile and quickly shown to our room, when I mentioned we had a 5 year old with us we were offered a late check out in case we were tired from our day of traveling. Our... More

We decided to travel to Blenheim for a couple of nights, we came accross this motel which looked alright.. We got offered to be shown our room before we booked which was good (everything looked ok until we had a closer look when the owner left) .. The internet prices were rediculous! $25.00 for 1gb of data!! They did offer... More

Travelled for work, enjoyed stay. The room was clean and tidy. Comfy bed and large spa pool in room which was enjoyed. Full kitchen so I was able to make a dinner rather than eat out. Host friendly and helpful. I will be staying here when travelling to blenheim again.

We stayed here with a large group of other people, including well behaved children, who were all in bed by 8:30 each night. We had booked out almost every room. We were certainly made to feel as though our money was not as good as the other guests. I would not stay here if you wanted your children to have... More

We are sorry that you feel we were not friendly towards the children staying here. You were certainly right when you mentioned that most of the children were well behaved, but unfortunately as the complex was full during the entire time of your stay, we also had other guests staying who were not part of your group and we had...
