“Great find - will definitely be back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

Stayed here for 2 nights while doing the Saint Clair half marathon. Perfect location - easy stroll to Seymoure Square (easy hobble back) - close to restaurants, shops etc.
The unit itself was great - obviously recently renovated as everything was shiny and brand new, bed super comfortable and fabulous spa bath which was just the tonic for aching limbs.
Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Blenheim. Loved it. (And it was so much cheaper than a hotel room).

We stayed two nights at this motel and found it faultless. The owners were friendly and helpful and very welcoming. Chris even dealt with our little disaster with the pan with calm efficiency.
The location was perfect with an easy walk to the town. Excellent laundry facilities too.

Always immaculate and the service is wonderful and accommodating. The location is excellent and close to town. We now stay no where else as this is our home away from home, vacancy allowing. Highly recommend.

I've stayed at this motel three times now and every time I've been very impressed. Ian and Chris are warm and welcoming and they remember and look after their repeat customers. I find it really comforting to arrive after a busy day at work, travelling alone, to be met by a friendly face who instantly remembers me. The rooms - I've stayed in two studios and a one bedroom - are all modern, very smart, spacious and spotless. Ample towels and toiletries, and a free DVD library with DVD players in the rooms (which I appreciate for the evenings when I'm working alone in the room). Excellent location with restaurant and shops just a minute's walk away. My first choice when staying in Blenheim.

We have stayed here 4 times now and it never fails to impress. The hosts are friendly, helpful and professional. Nothing is ever any trouble. The rooms are great with everything you need for your stay. Cannot fault anything. The rooms are always exceptionally clean. We would not bother even looking for anywhere else to stay in Blenheim. First class.
