Located about 10 minutes walk to the center of Blenheim. Very clean well kept rooms. Very comfy beds and generally cosy and quiet. Big heatpumps that we mostly had off as room was warm. There were windows to open for fresh air. Nice big shower, no bath. we liked the fact the mini bar had toothpaste and a tooth brush... More

Well located close to the cbd of Blenheim. Rooms are tidy, excellent bed. Shame that it lacks its own gymnasium. Reception staff were excellent and so friendly. Restaurant OK. Nice and clean, overall I would stay again.

I spent two full work weeks at Scenic so it became my home away from home while in Blenheim. The rooms are fairly standard hotel fare but the beds were amongst the best I have experienced and the pillows were excellent. The very good shower is a large walk in affair and quite big enough for two people. If you... More

The room was great, with good facilities. Staff were awesome - really helped with the parking and real late check-in and made the whole process easy. Price was quite decent as well. Would definitely go there again.

We stayed here for two night, doing a few days of wine tasting in the Marlborough area. The hotel is luxurious with high standard rooms and a magnificent restaurant. The hotel also rents out bikes for a symbolic price. A bit pricy, but worth it.

My finance and I had booked to stay here the night of our wedding, upon calling them to confirm the booking and pay via credit card they were rude, tried to increase the price from the advertised price on the website and then ADD GST on top, so what was going to be $135 was now suddenly $161.

Dear Lauren, I would like to apologise wholeheartedly for how your booking has been handled.
