After travelling down from Auckland over the course of a week this was by far the best hotel we stayed in. Good to have free wifi with great reception without the hassle of passwords and payments.. Rooms were spacious and light with fabulous showers. Restaurant excellent too.

I recently had the pleasure of staying at Scenic Hotel Marlborough. It is not the first time I have stayed there and certainly not the last. The rooms are clean, modern and comfortable and the staff really friendly. I will be back

Stayed here on a tour, the hotel was quiet and clean and had very good rooms with the wonderful scenic pillow top bed and the scenic invite to take unused toiletries home. Great Breakfast. We also had a tour dinner in the restaurant... so nice not to have a buffet.

Dear Sue Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I was sorry to note that you rated your stay as average because you thought the hotel old fashioned. Whilst the hotel was built in the late 1960's we underwent a complete refurbishment just a couple of years ago and whilst the structure of the hotel has not... More

We stayed there for just one night but felt properly chilled due to the modern and clean look and feel with excellent service. The staff were not stuffy and were happy to oblige us having just coffee and toast in the morning. The pool was heated and towels provided. You cannot get any views from this hotel which is a...

We loved the scenic Marlborough. The room was comfortable and quiet. We were just beyond the pool, which although not big, was heated to 28 degrees and empty when we went! We were there for a conference, the buffet meal was very good, the buffet breakfast was pretty ordinary. Easy to find. Parking very limited, this was mid week, so... More

This hotel is located just off a square within easy walking distance of the main town and close to the river where there is a nice footpath leading out of the city into the countryside. The hotel is spacious and the rooms reflect this as well. They are nicely finished with a large comfortable bed and the quiet residential environment... More

This is a great hotel which is in a Central location. It's right by Seymour Park, not far from the shops and also, the supermarket (Countdown). It also has a restaurant downstairs. I really enjoyed my stay here as it was only a 5minute walk to work. The staff were always helpful and friendly. So, next time you are in... More

The hotel was a nice choice. Walking distance to many shops and restaurants. The room was a good size and comfortable. We were early for our 7:00 pm dinner and were told that they were not ready for us and told to wait in the bar area. Not very pleasant about it either. There seemed to be plenty of parking.

Great little hotel in central Blenheim which is a perfect base for exploring the wine region. The room was clean, modern, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. There is a pool, which we didn't use as it was a bit chilly during our stay, but we did use the sauna and hot tub. A note to future guests, if you want... More
