There is excellent storage, you can readily find and understand the light switches, there are large comfortable chairs and a first class bed which would take... More

The rooms have been freshly renovated, it make them feel contemporary and like a luxury little apartment somewhere else in the world. I had a top level room which had like attic windows which reached out to the night sky. The room was warm and the bed the best bit was soft and comfortable for a great nights sleep. This... More

Very good room ,well furnished, comfortable and warm. Also very, very quiet. I had room service and my meal wasn't the best, but not bad either - I just prefer my vegetables on the well cooked rather than semi raw side of al dente. That would be my only complaint, very friendly staff and I would go back - I'd... More

I visited this Hotel recently and was immediately impressed by the attitude, friendliness and professionalism of the staff. The room (Superior King) was really comfortable and warm. (Outside was wet and cold). A nice flat screen TV on the wall with no visible cables. There was plenty of room to relax with nice comfortable furniture. I dined in the restaurant... More

I've participated in the last few Marlboro (Forrest Wines) bike rides, and always choose to stay at the Scenic Hotel in Blenheim, because it's clean & tidy, the meals are good, and the service excellent.

This is one of the best regional hotels I have ever stayed in. It's clean, spacious, with great facilities and a fantastic restaurant. There were four of us for dinner and everything was delicious. Service was good and quick and meals were also served quickly. Breakfast was also well presented and represented good value.
