So sorry your stay was not as good as you expected. We had recently sprayed your unit for insects so could have been the cause of your find. But we have noted your comments and passed them on to our cleaning staff as we pride ourselves on our standard of cleanliness. Hopefully you will try us again sometime. More

Great location, big rooms, value for money, retro style, well managed, better wheelchair accessible room than places two or three times the cost. Tennis court and games room so something for kids. Even a great restaurant right next door and walking distance to the middle of town.

What a great motel complex. Very very cheap but extremely tidy. Close to town for shopping and restaurants. Very friendly staff. As they state a budget, no frills motel but you couldn't ask for more. Big rooms, excellent shower. Tea and coffee provided for that 1st cuppa

We would definitely recommend this motel to any traveller. Bluey and his wife and Olivier made our stay here so warming and welcoming, low cost, clean and warm. Safe and secure. Well done. Like I said a Home away from Home. A family from Perth.

Bings will be my choice of accommodation in Blenheim. The motel had everything I needed. Very clean and staff are very friendly and helpful. The shower is the best! I'll be back for sure and will be recommending it to others. Thanks Bings!

First off - this is an no frills older style motel, so if you are looking for something modern this is not for you! That said, this stay was a fantastic price, we paid $110 for a two bedroom, two storey unit which is a huge bargain so it is easy to disregard the old interior. Overall I was pretty... More

Bings is my first choice when travelling to Blenheim because when I have stayed there the cost is modest, but the value is excellent. It does not bill itself as a luxury establishment, so if that is what you are looking for, look somewhere else. It is the oldest motel in Blenheim, but has kept its high levels of customer... More

Very basic massive room, maybe too big for a single person, The lady at the reception was so friendly and nice, that made my stay very pleasant, car park just in front of your room, and easy to walk to shops and restaurants.
