Best place ever. Hosts are amazing, even pre booked us an extra night just in case we stayed on (as the place was full), and we did stay of course. That's really forward thinking and customer centric. Perfect town location, beautifully presented (Ecoya candles on when we arrived - nirvana for my wife), immaculate throughout, and quiet. Lovely inner courtyard/parking... More

I have stayed three times this year at these motels for work purposes. The motel staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are modern as stated in the title and clean. The motel is very central to the shops, movies, the supermarket and dining places. I would recommend to friends and family.

One of the cleanest tidy motels I have ever stayed in. Warm ,comfortable and friendly service. Our unit had a spa bath and the fairydown topper on the bed was an added bonus. Quality fittings and real cool art displayed through the unit , even fresh cut flowers . The only place I stay now when I'm in Blenheim.

There is not one thing I can fault the Palms for... the rooms are amazing... not just your everyday hotel room, you walk in and instantly you feel comfortable and at home... its the little things that count and the personality that you can see with the way the rooms have been furnished and decorated... There is nowhere else I... More

We stayed at Blenheim palms motel for the second time in about two years, on our recent trip down south. The hosts Heather and Martin couldn't have been anymore accommodating. We were travelling with our 11 week old baby and the portacot was all set up all ready for us on arrival. The laundry facilities had been opened by the... More

We spent 1 night here. Spacious room and bedroom, somewhat dated furnishings; scented candles. Good location- not far from town center. Room and bathroom clean; we found light levels a bit low. Free wi-fi, but strange setup- had to renew every 2 hours with new input...multiple slips with info for this available at front desk. Staff pleasant and helpful.

Perfect location. Excellent accommodation. Exactly what we were looking for in a home base while exploring Marlborough. The city center is really walkable as well as the local supermarket. There is plenty to do within a few minutes of walking.

Very comfortable and welcoming place! The room was nice and warm- heater and electric blanket provided. The candles and all other touches make the place really feel like home. :) The location in Blenheim is central and easy to get around to wherever you need to go.

Nine of us accommodated for the annual Saint Clair Marathon. So that we could gather as a group at the end of each day Heather & Martin "gifted" one couple the largest apartment in their complex - no additional charge. Now, that is "going the extra mile" -unexpectedly. Thank you !

Whenever in Blenheim I always stay at the Blenheim Palms. Hosts, Heather and Martin make sure that my room is warm by turning on heating and closing up curtains. They ensure that there is milk in the room. The rooms are exceptionally clean and as I am a wheelchair user they make sure there is a shower chair ready in... More
