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

We stayed there two days and would highly recommend this as a place to stay. Great location, free parking and Internet. Rooms were clean and modern. Right on edge of the main street and easy walk into town and easy access to roads leading to wineries. The hotel was spotless, comfortable and has easy to access and free parking. What... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Ferry was delayed on route but the manager had our room ready, lit and comfortable. The unit was clean the room service each morning was great. Great location for a walk in the gardens and close to excellent cafes.

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

Very friendly & helpful, with great rooms The staff could not have been more helpful - advice on local stores & cafes and making reservations. When there was concern over the Interisland Ferry, the owner even called to find out information directly! The rooms are very well laid out, with comfortable seating, great beds and a roomy bathroom.

I stayed here for 3 nights - impeccably clean executive suite, room 1, separate bedroom, shower over spa bath, well catered kitchenette, spacious lounge area. A two minute walk gets you into the town's restaurant and cafe scene with plenty of eating options to choose from.

A group booked but as usual with a group numbers fluctuated. The owner still offered us all the per head rate quoted despite some of us paying for only one night instead of two. Others that had booked never showed. Thank you owners for being reasonable and not making us all pay more to cover the lost earnings. Also the... More

This is a lovely motel with clean rooms and in a great location to town and tourist attractions. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. Book here you won't be disappointed. Sky channels and quiet rooms. I recommend 2 nights here if you want to rest after a few days driving around the South Island .

We've been trying to find the 'perfect' spot to stay in Blenheim and now we've done it. Pity it took 3 goes. We had a downstairs studio room which was large and comfortable with a better bed than the one we have at home. And forgot to dig in and find out the brand and model :-( Also, it is... More
