One of the better Bella Vista Motels we stayed at during a recent "Tiki Tour" of New Zealand's South Island. Well appointed and clean and comfortable. Whilst motel is within a short walk of the town centre it is in a relatively quite area. Owners very friendly and helpful. Have stayed here before and quality is just as good as... More

We found the room very nice and comfortable. The bed was... More

Stayed here for one night recently. Was well priced and in a very convenient location. Would have no hesitation in recommending to others and would stay there again if the opportunity arises. Walking distance to town and restaurants.

We liked this motel - staff were really friendly and helpful and room was clean and had all we needed. Good value. Would recommend! They also helped us with a bike tour of the wine region which was fab.

We enjoyed our stay at Bella Vista Blenheim, it's a nice motel with tidy wee rooms. Had everything we needed & was well priced. Located close to the centre of town, walking distance to cafes, restaurants & bars.

Pleasant reception staff. we found our room to be quite cramped and rather dingy with a staircase passing in front of the window, although it was clean and tidy. Facilities were as expected, adequate tea coffee etc, bed was comfortable and the motel was handy after coming from the ferry. A short stroll from the centre of a quite uninspiring... More

We were having trouble finding a motel off the main roads and then we found this one. We had a studio upstairs, it was clean and tidy, needs hooks or rails for towels but the kitchen was ok. The lady in reception was a real chatterbox and told us all the places to go, Walking distance to town and countdown... More

The location is good, nice and central and walking distance to shops and restaurants. The unit was clean and tidy but the rooms are basic and not overly inviting, no pictures on the walls or anything that makes the unit appealing. The kitchen facilities were ok and met our needs while we were there. The towels in the bathroom were... More

Thank you to John and Wendy for making our 5 night stay a perfect one for the Nelmac Garden Marlborough Festival. Your pick up and return to and from the airport was added hospitality for our stay in Blenheim. Comfortable beds and pillows, beautiful linen, great showers and quite rooms were a treat.
