I called in by chance after a 6hr drive with my 2 kids to see if there were any rooms available. The ladies at the desk were so helpful and sorted me out with a room at a good price. The room was very comfortable and exceptionally clean. We sat by the pool in the sun for the afternoon which... More

Stayed two nights in a one bedroom unit. Very clean and comfortable. Great location to walk to the small shopping area and restaurants. We didn't eat here so can't comment on the food or service. Would stay again.

Well, I couldn't say anything about the place. It's very beautiful! But about the service... Awful. We had a very good waitress at dinner (hi, Jacquelyne!), but for breakfast it wasn't the same thing. At all. Our table wasn't even set when we seated so we waited. Nothing. We had to ask to have some cups and glasses.When we asked... More

This feedback seems very contrary to feedback we have been receiving re our service and is just not reflective of how we operate here at the Chateau Marlborough Hotel . I would appreciate you contacting me directly on 0800 75 22 75 or lynley@chateaumarlborough.co.nz so I can have the opportunity to discuss this with you. It is always harder for... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Our balcony opened up to the Square where Prince William and Kate had been photographed. Lots of fun cafes within walking distance. We had our first dinner in the hotel restaurant and it was delish! Nice atmosphere inside with doors wide open to the pool area. We enjoyed the breakfast that was included and... More

Friendly welcome by everyone you meet ... bar staff, room service, reception.. feels like a home from home. Everything you could wish for is available in the suite - kitchenette, dressing gowns,a cuddly kiwi if you feel homesick! The food at breakfast is superb- varied and plentiful and of the highest quality. Not surprisingly , given the location, the restaurant... More

We keep going back, friendly staff from reception to the wonderful ladies who make up your room. Lovely rooms with plenty of space and I just love that you don't have to take your own dressing gown, and yes they'll deliver the paper to your room in the morning.

This is a classy and clean hotel in the Centre of Blenheim. The place had friendly staff and nice comfortable and clean rooms. In addition, the breakfast was tasty and well appreciated although they might like to offer a full hot breakfast in addition to the continental breakfast. The hotel is more like a four star than a real five... More

We had a week to cover the North part of the South Island and to arrive at the Chateau Marlborough was a real eye opener. The place was beautifully kept and the service was beyond reproach. We would definitely stay there again when we are in the district.

We only stayed for one night and wish we had longer but we will definitely be back. The service was amazing, breakfast was awesome and rooms are lovely. Some other hotels and lodges in the marlborough region could learn a lot from the Chateau.
