This was my first visit to Blenheim/Marlborough region of NZ (to participate in the Forrest Grape Ride; - which was a great event in it's own right). The Scenic Hotel represented excellent value, and the staff were all very friendly & efficient. Meals were good value, although the ambience of the restaurant could be improved. I intend to participate in... More

My husband and I recently travelled around New Zealand's South Island. We stayed in a number of hotels and the Scenic was definitely the standout. After a warm welcome from reception, we found ourselves in a comfortable, modern and well designed room with an extremely comfortable bed. We had dinner at the restaurant on site - the service was excellent... More

I stay here a lot for work and am always overwhelmed by the level of customer service. I have never seen a better group of people working so well together. The staff are all exceptional. The rooms are very good and the bed is unbelievably comfortable.

From the warm welcome from the receptionist upon arrival to us checking out everything about this hotel made for a comfortable stay. Nothing seemed too much trouble. The room was quite simply furnished in a modern style and was very clean. We particularly liked the white cotton slipover headboard cover- it looked very pristine and is a very hygienic idea... More

I am pleasantly surprised by the Scenic Hotel. The previous night was in a not great hotel in Wellington so my expectations weren't high. Anyway, check in was smooth and the woman at the front desk was very helpful giving me ideas of where to go/what to see. My room was large and the bed was super comfy. The bathroom... More

I really like the Scenic hotel group. I very good product and you know what you are going to get and it's good. It is ideally situated for a trip to the Marlborough Wine Region. We enjoyed a really good meal at the hotel complimented by tasting wines from the region

Stayed for one night in feb 2014, we had a warm welcome and quick check in. The room was very clean and comfortable, with a lovely comfy bed. Breakfast was very good. The only down side was we had a room which was directly opposite the lifts and it was very noisy late at night and from 6am following morning.

Only stayed in Blenheim for one night, reputable name, great central location, convenient car park, were greeted politely and checked in efficiently, had a lovely big and comfy bed, nice outlook, good size tv, convenient drinks and snacks, etc. Unfortunately our room (201) was right beside the lift which means that sleep is absolutely impossible when it is being used...

Very nice and modern. Beds were super comfy. Location is great, next to Blenheim centre, if you want to go for a bite to eat. We did not eat at their restaurant, Mondrians, but menu looked very nice and we would have if we has stayed longer. Would recommend!!
