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

From the moment we arrived we were greeted by the lovely owners and shown to our unit - it was scrupulously clean and tidy. The tea, biscuits etc were lovely and the plunger coffee was superb! I will definitely be staying here again and recommend this lovely as a perfect place to stay - close to town - walking distance... 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.

This motel is well located close to the center of Blenheim (although an unkind person would suggest nowhere is far from this small town's center!), and is operated by a friendly and helpful couple. I stayed in a 'compact queen studio' and boy, was it compact. There was only space on one side of the bed to open a suitcase... More

I have stayed here regularly over the last two years with my Job. I have found John and Wendy to be helpful and professional. I also had no problem when on holiday choosing to stay here with my family. Overall I am disappointed as changes to my territory mean I will not be staying here anymore. Regards Jimmy Sales

We stayed here on our honeymoon knowing the Bella Vista chain and how clean and accommodating their lodging was. The motel in Blenheim was just as great as the others. Don't let the word "motel" throw you off. The rooms are clean and it's centrally located and a very short walk to the town center with restaurants and shopping. Wifi... More

Arriving early at the Bella Vista wasnt a problem for John the owner who helped carry our luggage to a perfectly clean room. It was wonderful to be woken up with 'Breakfast in Bed'. Wendy and John are teriffic hosts who make you feel like part of their family. I highly recommend this motel for a decent break away. Our... More

Great motel, really clean and comfortable. Friendly management. Both fat and skinny pillows which is great because I like skinny ones and you normally only get big fat ones. Good location with plenty of parking. I would recommend to friends.

Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are glad you liked our touch of the different pillow types as both Wendy and I also like different pillows and thought guests might like that too. We look forward to hosting you again. More
