The Palms motels is excellent.
I had traveled to Blenheim to meet the other half's parents and visit Picton - the room which I booked only the evening before on the Palms webiste only took a few minutes to enter all the details in and I received an email back confirming the reservation - I always prefer dealing with motels\hotels direct then no middle company can causes issues.
When we arrived at the motel at about 7pm the owner of the motel was behind the front desk and offered us milk for the tea and coffee facilities in the room and also gave us the details for the wireless internet access and also gave maps of the area including the wineries in the area and places to eat within walking distance.
The room was neat and tidy - and I don't really understand how somebody can say the street was busy outside we certainly didn't hear a thing! The TV was good for the duration yes it is portable - however whilst on vacation you really don't want to see the TV often apart from the news!
The room was very warm we did notice a lack of air con in the room for the heat - but with the windows wide open we had a nice breeze with the patio doors open.
The facilities in the studio where great with a small kitchen where you can cook meals make drinks and fridge\freezer you can keep drinks cools and sarnies for packed lunches during the day.
Wireless internet access is fast so you can pickup emails.
We also loved the seating area outside the front door on the balcony.
Parking was a breeze with ample parking especially on the first night when the place was full! The Palms is also within walking distance to the town .
All in all a very clean and friendly motel which I would recommend to anybody as a good point to break a journey either down to Christchurch or up to Picton to get the inter island ferry.
