On reading the other reviews about this motel, I wonder if we stayed in the same place. Our room opened on to a common landing used by other residents to get to their rooms. This was where our outside table and chairs were, in the passage. The outlook is onto the car park. It is a motel in the true... More

Spent the night in this nice quiet motel in the middle of Blenheim's CBD. Very welcoming hosts, everything was easy, nothing seemed to be too hard to accomplish. Comfy king beds, pay TV and free internet. One of the cleanest motels I've stayed in. I'll be coming back.
