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

The living room and separate bedroom were comfortable and spacious, clean and tidy. The lodge is close to town. The hosts were very welcoming. The kitchenette is well appointed with lots of tea and coffee and free milk when you arrive. Two wifi coupons were also provided

We had stayed here previously and found it to be excellent. We returned because of that and found this to continue as an excellent stay - close to town - the closest to the lovely river / bike track and the park opposite is so colorful and relaxing.

Received a warm welcome from the hosts before moving into our exec room. Absolutely no complaints with the room over a 3 night stay, it was very comfortable.

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
