Martin and Heather are wonderful hosts. Heather recommended several restaurants and never missed the mark! My room was warm and inviting during my late fall stay. A very easy walk to the bustling downtown.

Great motel with good location. Staff very helpful and kind. Room clean and well equipped. We had a room with an outside jaccuzi, which was the highlight of the whole trip for me! Will be back and will recommend to friends and family.

This motel is one of the best motels I stay at when on business around the South Island. There are lovely touches to the room, throws on the bed, leather lazy boy and magazines and candles on the tables, that make you feel like you could be at home. The owners are always friendly and the motels proximity to the... More

Good first greeting on arrival and provision of local information. The room was clean warm and inviting. Good parking facilities and close to town central. Quiet once the town clock stops ringing at 10pm. My only concern as a woman travelling alone was the privacy afforded by the Venetian blinds on the glass paned entry door. Passerby's can see into...

My stay away at the Blenheim Palms Motel is just like a home away from home. It is always clean, warm and comfortable. Martin and Heather have always been very good hosts, whenever I have stayed. Martin has even joined me for a round of golf. They are very good hosts and always make me feel welcome.

It all went so smoothly and Martin and Heather were wonderful hosts, handling all sorts of booking changes for us but nothing was ever a problem. The rooms are clean and comfortable and centrally located to all the bars, shops and supermarkets. If you’re... More

I visit Blenheim on business on a regular basis and having discovered the Blenheim Palms I return there every time. The rooms, furnishings, facilities and location are all excellent, and Martin and Heather are wonderful hosts - friendly, very helpful, considerate and dependable. The standard of maintenance and cleanliness is top notch. It is run professionally, but with a family/owner... More

Stayed at the Blenheim Palms for a few days. Heather & Martin are wonderful hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them. The Motel is only a few minutes walk from town, which is so handy. The rooms are lovely, spacious, very clean and you can see the owners take great pride in their Motel, everything you need is there.... More

Heather and Martin are hosts par excellence. I have stayed at the Blenheim Palms for at least nine years while on business and the standard of the rooms is consistently tops. More importantly the friendly service and willingness to go the extra mile are appreciated when you are away from home working.The Palms is a handy walking distance to the... More
