This time we stayed two nights and used the hotel facilities. The bar was quiet but well stocked with a friendly and very knowledgable bar manager. The restaurant had a simple menu easy to choose from. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. As usual the beds were very comfy and great after a long flight. Rooms are clean and... More

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

At the end of a drive, the room and food was all we were after... Reception were friendly and helpful. The room warm comfortable and well appointed.... Enough to encourage us to 'dine in'.

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
