We were in Blenheim for three nights and ate here on TWO of those! We like good food at fair prices, served without pretentiousness whilst allowing us to feel chilled and cherished....this restaurant did all that and some!.. We were not rushed and were advised about various options available by a VERY handsome head waiter....not certain if you'd call him... More

Stayed here several times on business trips always found this hotel to be warm and inviting and able to accommodate even the most demanding of travellers. Any request sort from the team of capable and highly efficient staff was answered immediately and carried out without delay. I've stayed in several of the rooms here all I believe with a different...

Stayed three nights as surprise birthday getaway. Stayed in the amazing room called The Raja Room. Love the wood and the king size super comfy four poster bed. The owners and staff were very friendly and eager to assist when ever needed. Really enjoyed the stay and service. The food and restaurant within the Hotel is well worth the price.... More

This hotel is small with only a few rooms. Our room was awesome. Loved the decor and the size of the room and bathroom were great. The service was great in every way. The only problem I felt was there was no where to put the kettle on besides the floor which honestly was ok. We did not dine in... More

From the warm welcome to the delicious evening meal everything here is geared to excellent customer service. Nothing seemed too much trouble. The room was spacious with an adjacent lounge common to all upstairs rooms. Situated centrally with free parking this is a wonderful base to explore the region. Hospitality at its finest.

Our two night stay here was very restful and enjoyable. Staff were extremely accommodating and helpful and we were astonished at how quiet it was at night considering it's position in town. We stayed in the Retro room which was quirky and fun. The upstairs bedroom could be difficult for some, but we found it very sleep inducing and quiet.... More

We had the great pleasure of staying at d'Urville. We had 3 rooms and they were charming and spacious. The renovation is really interesting. Our dinner was superb with a fabulous wine list. Sorry we had only alloted one night. The next day's visit to Omaka air display is not to be missed. Thank you, Tony, for recommending it.

Hotel d'Urville, on many websites, including its own, has been categorized as a 'boutique hotel. As there is no official commonly agreed definition for this particular hotel concept, this categorization is perfectly acceptable.However, let us be crystal clear that Hotel d'Urville is, by no means, a 'luxury boutique hotel'. It falls short on 3 specific accounts: upscale luxury, facilities &... More

we had a lovely welcome and all staff were friendly and attentive. Room was tastefully decorated. Although the bathroom is small it is more than adequate with a good shower. We ate in the restaurant on two nights. Service was excellent and the food delicious. The first night we had the fish platter to share which was lovely but we... More

The building that houses this hotel was once a bank. It was very unique. However, other than when we arrived, we never saw anyone at the desk. There was a leak around the outside of the shower, and the bed was not very comfortable. Each room had a unique theme. The WiFi was not good. You could only occasionally connect.... More
