The room we were in was a good size with the beds in the main lounge area. Was suprised to have a full stove and large fridge. Everything was clean and tidy. Queen size bed was very hard, single bed nice and soft.

Owners were very accommodating and put an extra bed in a unit so our extended family would fit. They were also great at offering advice on local attractions. Very clean, spacious unit. Playground and large grass area for kids to run around. Nice pool, although we didn't use it. Good pub next door for meals or a cold drink and... More

Thankyou for your review of our motel, we apologise for the lack of availability with the BBQ. We have since addressed this issue by making a second BBQ available for guests to use. As we progress with our grounds there will also be a dedicated BBQ area available for use so hopefully we will see you back again and able... More

We enjoyed our stay. The room was clean, spatious with all needed to prepare meals. It is well located 10 mins from the main wineyards. The only dowside was that we wanted to do a bbq as they sais they had a bbq for guests but it was already "reserved" to another room.

We found the owner to be really helpful upon check in, and gave some great local advice for eateries (highly recommend the Speights bar) The room was clean and comfortable which is exactly what you need after a wine tour. The place also has an outdoor pool which my wife utilized (before the wine tour) Overall a great little motel,... More

We enjoyed our one night here. After check in I noticed a baby hedgehog in the lawn. Well our two teenage girls were thrilled to watch the animal, as was I! Our 1 bedroom apartment was a good size with a generous kitchen (no oven though). Our queen bed was in the main living area space. Car was parked directly... More

Very comfortable roomy unit and friendly helpful hosts. The price is reasonable and the unit very clean and tidy. Close to shops wineries and town. Considering it is on a main road there was no traffic noise in the unit. We will definitely stay there again.

A weekend visit for a family wedding, the motel chosen from the AA book was an excellent choice. The owners were more than friendly and went out of their way to help us out with travel around Blenheim. My parents were at the same motel and they too were well looked after. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Not... More

We booked the three bedroom family unit and it was like a well equipped late 70's time warp. It was pleasant, comfortable, spacious with a well equipped kitchen. We also had our own new and well maintained BBQ. Convenient to town and the vineyards. Hosts were very helpful and the boys loved playing cricket on the lawn and described it... More

We stayed at the Cherylea as a group of 31 - families, couples, singles (11 units) - all in Blenheim for a wedding. We all were very pleased with our selection. The motel has expansive grounds - perfect for children - a trampoline, swing, slide and fantastic pool - all viewable from the units. We had a modern, spacious very... More

The motel is 70's kiwiana but the service from the owner is rude, abrupt and inflexible. Despite a large booking for almost a week, the owner insisted we leave earlier than normal checkout time. This and her disgruntled attitude to the most basic request for Internet access or a broom. These are not customer service focused people.
