We spent one night here and found the staff to be very helpful. She told us about the things to see in the area along with directions to get there. The room was nice and clean with a kitchenette. It's location was ideal - close to everything. Don't miss the chocolate factory!!

Flew Into Blenheim from Christchurch and took our plane back up to Hamilton the following day. Had a whole day in Blenheim. The motel is maybe a 5 minute taxi ride to the airport. The motel is situated quite close to the town centre, and has all you need. A big Countdown and even more important it is only a... More

Stayed three days recently and had cockroches in bathroom. Also no extractor fan in bathroom to take steam away which made the tiles very slippery. And hairs on hand basin and old hair shampoo container on wall of bath. Tv reception was terrible. Plus TV in bedroom could only receive 3 stations.

We stayed at Phoenix for one night during our trip. Room was very clean and spacious. Motel has a nice quiet location so there is no traffic noise issues during the night, short walk to a supermarket was a bonus. Bed was a bit wobbly but we are just very picky about the beds.

This was our third stay at the Phoenix. We like to stay where we know we'll get a friendly greeting, a very comfortable accommodation, and be in a good location. The Phoenix provides all of these - AND a nice little wallowing-pool - the owners are extremely friendly and when we found ourselves unexpectedly needing an extra night there, they... More

We stayed one night only, in a beautiful unit, quiet, spacious, and really enjoyed the friendly welcome to Blenheim. Definetely the smartest Motel unit we stayed in during our 8 day South Island trip. Highly recommended

This motel exceeded all expectations for our family holiday. The rooms were comfortable, clean and very comfortable. The fact that they have a family unit able to sleep a good amount of children makes it an ideal place to stay. Close to Picton and the sounds an ideal base. Highly recommend this especially if you have a young family.
