I've participated in the last few Marlboro (Forrest Wines) bike rides, and always choose to stay at the Scenic Hotel in Blenheim, because it's clean & tidy, the meals are good, and the service excellent.

This is one of the best regional hotels I have ever stayed in. It's clean, spacious, with great facilities and a fantastic restaurant. There were four of us for dinner and everything was delicious. Service was good and quick and meals were also served quickly. Breakfast was also well presented and represented good value.

We enjoyed this hotel: it's clean, modern with great decor, and the beds are a dream. It's within reasonable walking distance to plenty of great restaurants and close to the vineyards. Within 10 minutes you could be tasting great wine. Would definitely recommend this hotel for couples.

Really enjoyed our three night stay at this beautifully presented and well-located hotel opposite the pretty Seymour Square. We were fortunate to obtain a last minute booking for 2 rooms, one with excellent disabled facilities for my elderly father, after our alternative accommodation fell through at the very last minute. The staff are lovely and very helpful and friendly. The... More

The Scenic is centrally located in downtown Blenheim and offers bar and restaurant facilities. Rooms are large, free WIFI and off-street parking. Friendly and well trained staff. Would recommend the Scenic for the business or international traveller used to a consistent standard of service.

We were really warmly greeted by Tammy and she helped us orientate ourselves to the town and also booked us onto a great wine tasting trip.

We stayed here at Easter, a busy time for Blenheim with the air show on. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the service was good. The rooms have been updated since we last stayed and are now fresh, comfortable and modern. Will come back again.
