We were 2 couples who rented the penthouse apartment here for 5 nights. It was fabulous. Definitely 5 star. 2 bedrooms each with a king size bed & own ensuite bathroom, large lounge & dining area, separate well-appointed kitchen & a large balcony with outdoor seating. The only thing missing was a laundry but there is a free guest laundry... More

Myself and two others stayed for one night loved the rooms and how clean everything seemed to be, loved the spa bath the most and how you could watch tv right from there. The only thing I didn't like was when one of the kitchen lady's came up to our room to empty the fridge for us. She wasn't aware... More

Stayed at the hotel as part of a scrapbooking retreat for a long weekend. Rooms were spacious and beds were extremely comfortable. Facilities were excellent and the meals at the restaurant were outstanding. Staff are very friendly, approachable and obliging. Hotel is located within walking distance to CBD and was very easy find when driving from out of town.

We stayed in one of the rooms with a new bathroom, and it was lovely. The room was large, with a bedroom, lounge room and sitting area. As others have mentioned, the bed is really nice, and the heating worked well. The only thing that would be nice is a restaurant for breakfast! The hotel restaurant doesn't do breakfast, but...

Nice rooms but air pump directly over the bed and blowing all night therefore difficult to control temperature. We felt price was really up there considering it was off peak time of year and the restaurant food also up there in or ice and very average on quality. Blenheim is a great place so check out the alternatives
