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

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

Stayed at the Raymar for a night in early April 2013. Used Booking.com to book and was greeted by the manager and shown to the room. Room was clean and tidy. It backed onto the main road and was pretty quiet considering. It is a budget motel so if you are looking for a place to sleep and move on... More
