We spent 2 nights at this hotel during our visit to the Marlborough region in March 2014. The hotel facilities are very nice and of good quality. The staff attention was good. The double room was very comfortable and spacious, with nice view to the swimming pool area but at the same time with privacy. It was cool and partially... More

We arrived late afternoon - an unexpected stay due to checking out of somewhere else (not in Blenheim) where we had been booked for an extra night but couldn't stand the thought! So, we just pitched up here - liked the look of the place and asked if they had a room. Yes, they had and the welcome we received... More

Our stay in this hotel was very enjoyable. The facilities and rooms were great and very comfortable. The gym in the hotel was also awesome, whilst small, it is very well equipped.

This gorgeous hotel was situated not too far from the town centre. Arriving a little early, Lindley, the very friendly receptionist said she would phone me when the room was ready, so we wandered into the town.

Stayed one night at this hotel and thought it excellent. I got a price off the internet and when I went to the office, I was told that the current rate was $20 dearer but was immediately given the price stated on the internet. Great spacious room, two minutes walk to town, friendly staff and clean.
