I have been using this Motel complex for around 6-7 years now, and the customer experience is consistantly excellent, which is why I keep coming back. The service I get from Martin and Heather is always top notch, and feels very personal. For example, I was running late one time because of trouble with the ferry, I rang them and... More

We had a brilliant stay at Blenheim Palms Motel! From the time we stepped in to the room until we left it was perfect. The rooms are extremely well appointed, the owners are friendly and hospitable yet not overbearing, the location is fantastic too. I thought our unit (number 1) on the lower ground street side would be noisy at... More

The Palms is a nice clean establishment right in the centre of Blenheim. I had not pre booked and rocked up by chance when a nearby place I usually stay at was full.

I stayed at the Blenheim Palms 3 weeks for work, along with a group of others and we were so well looked after. Nothing better than coming back after a long day to fairy lights and heater on in the rooms. Heather and Martin are awesome hosts who really look after you and the unit was lovely. Highly recommend it!!!

We spent the weekend in Blenheim, while our child competed in a sports tournament. The beds were very comfortable, and the motel was quiet at night, which was perfect for us. There is a Countdown supermarket within a two-minute walk, and restaurants/takeaways are close by. Martin and Heather are very friendly and welcoming. Will definitely return.

They were Friendly, Attentive, Professional, Helpful. Can't rate them highly enough. Martin and Heather went the extra mile and were so enthusiastic with all the guests. I didn't have a car and they very kindly ran me to Omaka Heritage Centre. What other hotelier would be so obliging.

Clean, modern and close to everything. Great friendly staff that went the extra mile for me. Nice touches like having the heater on in my room when I arrived on a cold evening. Well priced with really good rooms. Highly recommended.
