Excellent quality of rooms and exceptionally helpfull and friendly staff. Because of Dorothy's and Doug's hospitality at the Sundowner we stayed at other ASURE Motels in NZ and can recommend them all.

Good quality motel with good sized rooms and friendly owners. A little out of town is the only drawback.

We stopped in Blenheim mainly to see the Aircraft Heritage Museum as we drove from Nelson to Kaikoura. This is a typical small (10 units) motel, but well presented, clean and comfortable and with excellent hosts with good local knowledge. There is a supermarket directly opposite, but it is about 10 minutes drive to restaurants in the Blenheim Town Centre.... More

Very well established, traditional motel set on the edge of town on one of the main roads. Nothing fancy but very well kept, spotlessly clean, good value and excellent hosts. We broke our journey here on our way to Nelson from Kaikoura and it fitted the bill perfectly, although I would not like to spend more than 1 night here.

We stayed in this motel for our last night before returning to Wellington. We recommend this motel to anyone. We had friendly help from the owners/tenants with the wifi in the room. The room (7) was great and we had no noise from the road.

We picked this motel because of other reviews and we weren't disappointed. The welcome from Dorothy (the owner/operator) was great. The unit was spotlessly clean with a living space which had an extra double bed in it, a dining table and chairs, and a good kitchen area with ample workspace. There was a washing line outside the back door and... More

Excellent location on way in to Blenheim from Nelson and conveniently right opposite a supermarket. Very welcoming and friendly hosts and extremely well furnished/equiped room with all kinds of little extras we normally associate with 4 star hotels. In fact we made a detour to be able to saty here again towards the end of our South Island trip as... More

Our unit was very clean and very well equipped, parking was right outside the door. Hosts were very friendly and helpful and organised our wine tour for us. Restaurant was just a short walk away and the ASURE Sundowner Motel was directly opposite a supermarket and shopping mall. Great swimming pool, especially with Marlborough's high summer temperatures while we were... More

We only stayed here one night, but the people were very nice, and the motel room was spacious and perfect for our needs as we were on a budget. PROS - Doug and Dorothy were lovely people, advised us a nice place to eat in Havelock (about 25mins away) called The Slip Inn, and it was very nice. Also assisted... More
