Well located next to Seymour park and just a couple of minutes walk from the town centre. Very clean & well maintained rooms with everything you need. Good parking too. Cost $179 for a couple in a twin bedded room, which is great value for money.

We stayed a couple of nights here in order to visit the wineries in the area, and for that purpose it serves very well. The hotel is modern and smartly furnished. Our room was of a good size and well-equipped. We ate both dinner and breakfast in the restaurant, both excellent and moderately priced: useful as Blenheim is quite a... More

Great location near Blenheim township. Very nice room and modern like you would expect in the city hotels in Auckland. Much nicer than the Auckland Takapuna Oaks. Washing machine and dryer in the room which is really helpful if you have a limited working wardrobe with you. The bathroom was a little on the small size but otherwise very nice... More

Dear Guest Thanks very much for your kind words and I am glad you enjoyed your time with us. We do have a separate laundry facility (rather than washer and dryer in your room) which is located on the top floor although this is closed overnight to avoid disturbing anyone that may be sleeping. It is certainly a useful facility... More

This is a great hotel ideally situated for all the cellar doors in Marlborough. The food is first class and the buffet breakfast has a good choice of hot and cold dishes. They have a very good wine list which will suit even the most discerning palate. All of the staff are exceptional and the manager is a fountain of... More

Also the guest laundry room is on this floor. The bedroom had everything needed for our stay and was in a great location for... More

Good location, modern and very clean. The room was very nice and the outdoor heated pool was brilliant. We arrived on christmas day whilst the staff were having their dinner. They paused their dinner to welcome us and check us in. we were only here for one night and would of been happy to stay longer.

We stayed 4 nights and felt very well cared for. We had our four year old granddaughter and staff were just lovely with her. The bed and pillow range were so comfortable.

The Scenic Circle is in a handy location next to Seymour Square which means that the Blenheim CBD is within walking distance. The Hotel is one of those sprawling complexes built late in the 20th century and well used by the Tour Market - the 50 seater bus will pull in and disgorge a bunch of travellers who will overnight...
