So friendly, would definitely stay here again. It felt like a home away from home while we were there. Great location but still lovely and quiet. The family who run this place make you feel like they care about you.

We stayed at this motel with a group of us in 3 rooms. Our flight was delayed but they kindly let us check in late.

This in no way fazed Heather who welcomed us warmly and later Martin helped me connect to their free wifi. We were in Room 15 which was spotlessly clean and comfortable. A pleasant... More

Room was clean. Check in and out smooth and efficient. Staff friendly and helpful with great recommendations for winery lunches. Parking is tricky only because the lot is small. Walking the town was easy from here.

While this is a lovely hotel located conveniently in the heart of Blenheim, the staff ruined our stay right from the moment we checked in. Having worked in the service industry, specifically in hotels, I understand when customers are frustrating or annoying. We were none of those things and received nothing but short, abrupt answers to reasonable questions and a... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience on Trip Advisor, what you did not share was the your group kept all of our other guests awake until midnight on the first night and 4am on your second night, so yes, by 4am I am out of hospitality, I was patient and very tolerent. While we understand everyone... More

We stayed two nights at the Blenheim Palms attending a family wedding. The service from the moment we arrived (a little early) were exceptional and friendly. This is a well cared for property with spotless facilities and i would recommend to anyone.

Have stayed at Belenheim Palms Motel numerous times and can not fault it. Fantastic rooms, friendly staff and a great atmosphere. Rooms are large and homely, excellent facilities in your room and fantastic bathroom amenities. Would recommend to anyone staying any length of time. 5/5
