“nice room and friendly hosts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Travelled for work, enjoyed stay. The room was clean and tidy. Comfy bed and large spa pool in room which was enjoyed. Full kitchen so I was able to make a dinner rather than eat out. Host friendly and helpful.

I will be staying here when travelling to blenheim again.

Room Tip: studio with spa bath. large room with lots of space.

We stayed here with a large group of other people, including well behaved children, who were all in bed by 8:30 each night. We had booked out almost every room. We were certainly made to feel as though our money was not as good as the other guests. I would not stay here if you wanted your children to have a good time.

We are sorry that you feel we were not friendly towards the children staying here. You were certainly right when you mentioned that most of the children were well behaved, but unfortunately as the complex was full during the entire time of your stay, we also had other guests staying who were not part of your group and we had received a number of complaints regarding the level of noise. We always try to consider all of our guests needs and apologize if our request for a lower level of noise was offensive in any way. Unfortunately the excitement of children does not always mesh well with people on holiday or corporate clients.

We recently stayed for a weekend in a 2 bedroom spa bath unit. We found the room to be spacious, clean and had everything we needed. Located near town. Service was pleasant and friendly and we got the impression we could just ask for anything. Overall a great experience.

Room Tip: The larger, family type suites are located furtherest from the main road, not perfectly quiet but pr...

The housekeeping unit was fine, kitchen, Big TV, dining table, sofa. Very clean, no air conditioning. For cooling open the windows without screens. A quiet place to spend the night.

Thank you for your review, we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. We strive to make our guests as comfortable as possible during your stay. To respond to the cooling of units, you can of course open the windows but there is also a fan in every unit for cooling. How unfortunate that you didn't locate it in your unit during your stay. Perhaps next time.

We stayed here (two couples) just after the February earthquake in Christchurch. All of our belongings were still in Christchurch, but Sue and her husband, the owners, took us in and helped us out. The rooms were spotlessly clean with every amenity and we stayed in several different rooms. We really enjoyed the two bedroom suite and were able to go to Sue to answer our many questions. She made all arrangements for a fabulous boat ride down the ride combined with a wine tour and helped us with ferry arrangements and motel room in Nelson. We walked to town and to different restaurants and would stay here again if we ever return. Thank you!
