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

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
