Two nights spent here, the rooms where well equipped with a little kitchenette and comfy chairs. The bathroom in my room was dated but clean with great smelling toiletries. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The restaurant provided us with the best steak eaten in a long time, except for the surprise when two girls ordered it rare :)... More

This hotel was recommended by a couple of locals and it did not disappoint. My room was gorgeous with a separate kitchen...very spacious. The service was impeccable. Room service menu was a little limited and I much more enjoyed breakfast in the restaurant than dinner that was served in my room the night before. I would highly recommend Chateau Marlborogh...

We booked a one bed suite for 4 nights. This was our best accommodation for 3 weeks of holidays. Loads of room with washing machine dryer, dishwasher. The bed was excellent and plenty of room in the lounge room. Also it had a safe which we have found to be very rare in NZ. The staff were extremely friendly and... More

What a poor hotel! We were led to believe this is 5 star, but we have stayed in better 3 star hotels. The bathroom in or room was shocking. Avocado green sink and the shower was clad in the same colour plastic with a ooden ceiling, metal shower tray and old shower curtain. I don't think the bathrooms have been... More

Stayed for two nights and booked a king studio room. It was better than expected. Location was awesome. Walked into town for dinner both nights and supermarket just around the corner.

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

This gorgeous hotel was situated not too far from the town centre.
