I just want to thank the member of staff who was working on the reception desk on the morning of the thursday June 4th. (Can't remember his name) i got myself in a mess as my car wouldn't start and started panicking thinking I wouldn't get to picton in time to board the ferry. He tried ringing breakdown services but... 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.

We enjoyed this hotel: it's clean, modern with great decor, and the beds are a dream. It's within reasonable walking distance to plenty of great restaurants and close to the vineyards. Within 10 minutes you could be tasting great wine. Would definitely recommend this hotel for couples.

Really enjoyed our three night stay at this beautifully presented and well-located hotel opposite the pretty Seymour Square. We were fortunate to obtain a last minute booking for 2 rooms, one with excellent disabled facilities for my elderly father, after our alternative accommodation fell through at the very last minute. The staff are lovely and very helpful and friendly. The... More

The Scenic is centrally located in downtown Blenheim and offers bar and restaurant facilities. Rooms are large, free WIFI and off-street parking. Friendly and well trained staff. Would recommend the Scenic for the business or international traveller used to a consistent standard of service.

Stayed for 2 nights over New Year's - we arrive NY eve and the hotel was obviously full. The lady ahead of us asked about upstairs rooms and was nicely told 'we're full' so not point us asking again!
