Nice tidy room and comfy bed. Great location and we walked to town several times which is a very short stroll. Good parking and a nice park across the road. Very quiet and no road noise. Would defiantly stay here again when visiting.

We wanted a base in Blenheim a short walk away from the shops and restaurants and a short drive from the vineyards. We were happy to pay for accommodation better than a good motel and with the independence you don't get in a B&B. Chateau Marlborough looked like it might fit the bill. It did more than that. We took... More

I stayed here for two nights and although it's a pleasant enough spot, it did not live up to its claims of "5 star luxury". There are two main reasons why: 1) Customer service was poor. If you were simply checking in or saying hi, they were friendly, but if there was any request or issue to resolve, the friendly... More

Anyplace with "Chateau" in the name makes me instantly skeptical unless it's in the Loire Valley. OK, the Chateau Marlborough isn't a chateau but it's a very nice hotel with some chateau-y design elements. Otherwise it's perfectly modern, nicely appointed, comfortable and quiet. Unfortunately we couldn't get into the restaurant, it being Easter and it was booked up, but it... More

Our stay for a weekend was very enjoyable as the quality of our room was of a very high Standard as well being modern looking and very clean. We would definitely stay there again as the need arises to be in Blenheim.

We did not stay in the hotel, but stopped by before our wine tour with Bubble Grapes to have breakfast. Great service, food and thank you for the recommendation to visit Yealands vineyards, it was worth the drive over.

My wife and I had just completed a nine day bus tour thru the South Island of New Zealand. Only one or two to the hotels we stayed in on that trip would barely get a minimum recommendation.

We stayed in two different rooms because a computer "glitch" meant a superior room which we had booked 5 months previous was not available. The first night was in room 101 which was nicely refurbished except for the bathroom which was small, a bit mouldy and must have been put in a few decades ago. The second night we had... More

Yes the room we got on this visit was outdated but clean and very comfortable. I would request a newer room next time as I do know from experience these ARE lovely. Staff are all very friendly and helpful. Dinner was brilliant in Quench :)
