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.

the rooms were clean and well appointed. The bed was extremely comfortable and there was no noise. The staff were very helpful and made some useful recommendations as to where we could eat, shop or visit. We would happily 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. The rooms are newly decorated, with comfortable beds and good bathrooms. The only thing I would suggest is that they put terraline curtains in so... More

If you are visiting Blenheim this is a convenient place to stay for both visiting the vineyards and also Blenheim town. Walking distance of town centre on side of main road but very little traffic noise (none at night). Very helpful and friendly staff, clean and well provided units. This was our second visit and would certainly stay here again.... More
