Home away from home. Spotless room with everything we needed. Easy walk to restaurants and shops. Good parking. Heather even presented us with Easter buns! We felt like we were staying with friends. Definitely recommend.

The Blenheim Palms Motel was very clean, tidy, modern and and the hosts were very helpful with suggeestions for dinner and where we could go for a nice run, all in all a great stay and would definetly stay there again. It was also very quiet considering the Motel was nearly fully booked.

Very helpful staff with a good local knowledge. Room clean and well equipped good parking available on site. In a handy position for town and supermarket. Plenty of vineyards to visit though you will need transport which can be arranged by reception or drive your self.

Can't go wrong here- excellent central location, friendly welcome, stylish surroundings and awesome attention to detail. The candles in the room, lovely toiletries, DVDs and magazines were a really nice touch and the unit had everything you could need. Highly recommend.

This is the third time I have stayed, as part of an MG car club pre or post rally. We always arrive at random times, and it is never a problem, even last time when our ferry crossing was delayed. Martin phoned around to get us a dinner reservation at Raupo. Their website says "we take immense pride in our... More

Stayed at Blenheim Palms Motel on multiple occasions with work. Staff are always very friendly, helpful and looking for more ways to make your stay more comfortable. The rooms are spectacular, extremely well decorated and spotlessly clean. In a great, central position but still very quiet and comfortable. I would highly recommend anyone travelling through Blenheim or surrounds to stay... More

The little things are what make the Palms great - candles, gorgeous body wash and lotion, and most of all, the people. Wouldn't go anywhere else. The team who welcome you do so with open arms and nothing is too much trouble.

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. The rooms were appointed with a queen & single bed and were clean, modern and comfortable. The only negative point was that were located on the roadside so the roadtraffic was quite loud. Located in... More

Thank you so much to the lovely couple who run Blenheim Palms Motel. You were so great. As soon as we arrived we were made to feel really welcome. The room was gorgeous. You gave us water bottles for our bike wine tour, helped with directions...just lovely, lovely people and motel.
