lugano motor home located smack in town centre is a great place for weary travellers looking to crash for a night. Every unit come with a basic kitchenette. We chose the one bed room unit. The blinds were slightly dusty but all in all we were happy with the accommodation. Also there is complimentary wifi

Up to the usual standard for cleanliness and facilities but added bonus of quiet location and fountain that changes colour at night just across the street which we could see from our room. Hosts very helpful and friendly.

Lugano is within walking distance of anywhere in the town. The hotel rooms are very comfortable and spacious with fully equipped kitchen area. The staff are extremely pleasant and helpful.

Jenny, Murray and the "girls" make a very hospitable team. We asked for a double room and got rooms that would sleep 6! We were in Blenheim for my sister's 60th birthday and staying at Lugano made it a memorable occasion. Beautifully presented, very comfy beds and very quiet at night. This was our second trip to Blenheim and would... More
