Unit was clean and had good selection of tea, coffee and even had fresh milk in the fridge. Towels changes daily. Staff super friendly and helpful, had bikes for hire and gave lots of useful information about what to do. An ideal stay in Blenheim, about 5-10minute walk to town centre.

Stayed just one night. Manager very pleasant and helpful. Room and bed linen very clean. Limited kitchen facilities in the room (no sink to wash up in) but the communal kitchen immaculate. Wifi server was changed the afternoon we arrived and we got excellent coverage included in price. For the price we paid we were very happy with this accommodation... More

Simple room (we had a double room, with one queen bed and one single bed) with kitchen amenties. Free wifi but only works by the reception. The walls are quite thin so expect to hear you neighbours. Overall, ok for a couple of nights for a convenient stay to go visit the wineries.

the room was ok and bed comfortable. cooking facilities poor. No hairdryer. No wifi if room. OT very close to the office. Advertises shuttle to airport. Not available, which was annoying as it was the point of difference that made me book to stay here.

Excellent budget motel for overnight stay. Facilities were clean, fresh, and comfortable, Staff friendly and helpful. Excellent value for money. The main shopping centre is close by but not walking distance. Car parking area was a bit tight but managed. Quiet although on a main road

This is an older set of motels, definitely in need of re-decoration, but perfectly adequate. We simply wanted a guaranteed bed for the night after a long day travelling and this suited us fine, especially given the price. The bed was comfortable and the unit was very clean. Free wifi was included and it was close to cafes etc but... More

We arrived bright and early yesterday as we were in Blenheim for the Wine & Food festival. We chose this hotel as it was close to town. Upon arrival we were told that we'd been "upgraded" to another hotel approximately a kilometre further out of town, which was no better than we were expecting when we booked the Raymar. No... More

We booked for a night at this motel nearly 4 weeks ago, with email/phone confirmation. On arrival this evening at 8pm the manager (Dave), who we had spoken to when booking, had no record of the reservation. We showed him the email booking correspondence and he was completely uninterested. The complex was full, he offered no alternative, no suggestions, no... More

Dave C, Owner at Raymar Motor Inn, responded to this review

The emails show an enquiry, a quote and the requirement to provide credit card details to confirm - he never sent the card details - therefore no booking was confirmed. This person never stayed at Raymar - never saw the units and has no knowledge of our service or facility I was not uncaring - simply had no other rooms... More

Easy to book and find, right near to local park, not too far to walk into main centre of Blenheim. Good size room, would easily accomodate a 3rd person. Decent kitchenette in room plus a main kitchen avail to share as well. Good size bathroom, all in together. Owner really helpful in giving local info including special things on that... More
