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

This is a smaller hotel with nicely appointed rooms that have been updated quite recently. The room was quiet and the bed very comfortable. The staff are well trained, friendly and helpful. I don't usually expect great coffee from any hotel chain, but the coffee here was so good that I bought 3 more to take to my first meeting... More

This is a lovely hotel with very comfortable rooms. The bed was very large and cosy, the room had modern amenities, and a great shower. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
