It was a pleasure staying at the Blenheim Palms Motel. We stayed in the Spa Suite. The only reason I gave this a 4 instead of 5 is because the shower let the room down a bit. It's a walk-in shower but with the curtain and position of the shower head the water got everywhere, which we remedied by putting... More

This is a nice motel. Our room was very nicely furnished with a modern and cozy feel to it. It is a quick and easy walk to the shops and restaurants. My husband particularly liked the large comfortable chair in the room. It is about a half hour drive to Picton if you are taking the ferry.

This motel is perfect to stay at in Blenheim as you can walk to cafés, shops, supermarket etc. We stayed in a studio unit and it was very clean, modern and comfortable and we would definitely stay again.

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. The manager was most helpful and efficient at check iin and similarly his wife at checkout. He gave good advice on where to eat and other useful... More

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.
