We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. After booking through the internet all email communications with the staff were so efficient and friendly. They booked some activities for us prior to our arrival and were able to suggest other activities for us to do. The breakfast offered in the restaurant was very tasty. The rooms are beautifully decorated and... More

We had trouble finding someplace appealing and not outrageously expensive in Blenheim. We were pleased with our stay but there was nothing to really elevate it. We were two couples traveling together; at check-in, we were told that one couple had been upgraded (we did book separately, but at the same time and from the same city, and did make... More

Thank you for your feedback. I was sorry to read your comments and your disappointment on the upgrade given to the couple you travelled with and not yourselves also. If the rooms weren't booked together it is difficult for us to know that this is the case. We on occasion offer our guests complimentary upgrades if we had known that... More

This is a lovely hotel. We arrived late as the ferry was late into Picton, but not to be flummoxed, the staff informed us that though we would be to late to have dinner in the dining room - they would be happy to provide room(suite) service. And so it was. As we were four adults travelling together we had... More

We did a wine tour in the morning and the hotel staff were happy to store our bags until we could check-in in the afternoon. Staff were friendly and helpful. We asked for a quiet room after reading previous reviews, got a beautiful room away from the road near reception. There was a little bit of noise earlier in the... More

My wife and I stayed as Chateau Marlborough, for 2 nights, in early March, this year. This whole trip was to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary.

Chateau Marlborough is a lovely place, and we had a great Grand Studio Suite complete with kitchen and washer/dryer. Very spacious and clean. A huge walk-in closet with tons of hanging and drawer space, and an ironing board. The bathroom featured a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower. Heated towel bars as we found throughout NZ, and also a bed heater.... More
