Initially selected the Lugano as the indicated facilities included free WiFi and parking and a king size bed. What a gem the Lugano proved to be. The room was very comfortable, well equipped and quiet. Lugano's location close to the commercial centre and across from Seymour Square was the icing on the cake. We found the staff to be very...

This lodge is well taken care of. It's very clean. The location is wonderful, and there's a beautiful park across the street. The owners were so kind and helpful, in particular when I was having difficulty with one of their clothes dryers. They went the extra mile. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We were in Blenheim for a conference and we are very happy to have chosen Lugano. Lovely people, warm welcome - even with the heat pump on for us - quiet, clean and well-appointed, very comfortable and so close to everything. Highly recommended!

This place is so handy to town, an easy walk to many restaurants and the theatre. Great fast wifi, could not be cleaner, nice modern room, on the main road but still quiet. Friendly hosts. Would stay here again.

Chose this place as within walking distance of the Convention Centre where I was attending a Rotary Conference. 3 couples had units and we all found them to be well appointed, clean and comfortable. Location also handy for walking to the town centre. Cost was in the usual range for similar accommodation. Nice outlook onto a grassy square. Plenty of... More

From the moment we got here we were made to feel very welcome. Down to recommendations of where to eat and some free drinks vouchers! Our room upstairs was amazing. Quality furnishings and fittings, very clean, cozy yet classy. Lots of little extras like a coffee plunger. Great air-con (it was very cold when we visited). Bed was super comfy.... More

You must stay here. A very central location right opposite the park and only a 2 min walk to town. The owners are very friendly and willing to do anything to make your stay comfortable.
