Prior to leaving on a NZ Adventures High Country Tour we spent a night at this hotel as the briefing was to be held there. The service, rooms, decor, facilities, staff and both meals we had were excellent. We had a most enjoyable stay and were happy with every aspect. We would definitely choose this hotel again.

Dear Guest Thank you very much for writing your review and I am delighted that you had such a great time with us. The NZ Adventure Tour sounds great fun - exploring parts of NZ that most don't get to see. I hope it was as good as it sounds and I hope to see you back in Marlborough some... More

We were part of a very large party who stayed her for 4 weeks. We all loved our time here! The clean, well appointed rooms (with big TVs!), the super friendly front of house staff and the bar where everyone knows your name were matched by Blenheim's marvellous weather, which also meant we were able to take advantage of the...

I'm closing in in 100 reviews and this was probably the most functional room I have stayed in; extremely well designed with Scandinavian design feel. Friendly, well trained staff. Large selection on breakfast buffet. Free wifi.

Dear Guest Your comments were high praise indeed from such a seasoned traveller. We are very proud of our rooms and feel they have been well designed. All of our rooms are virtually identical in size, fittings and design with just our accessible rooms varying slightly in layout. The free wifi has been introduced throughout the group so you will...

I have stayed here twice now for business. The hotel is comfortable, quiet and clean. Situated across from a park with clock tower and a short stroll to town and Countdown. Approx 10 min drive from airport -shuttles are always available if you do not hire a car. Friendly staff. Rooms are pricey but comparable

Lovely room with a view of the Wither Hills. The staff and the service were first class. The hotel restaurant serves world class food and wines and, again, the service was amazing. The view at night of the fountain which changes colour in the park opposite enhances your dining experience. There's a guest laundry too - something you don't see... More
