Staying in Blenheim was not something we had planned for our Christmas holiday, but a mechanical emergency changed things a bit. We found and booked the Raymar on an accomodation website an hour before we arrived. I thought that it was a bit odd that there was no one there to check us in etc. When we rang the owner, he essentially talked me through checking us in myself, over the phone! I admit to being a bit concerned about security over that, but he was very nice and friendly. Our room was clean, if a bit cramped, with room for up to 6 people to sleep. The owner came round a few hours later to make sure everything was fine and to apologise for not being there when we checked in. The only complaint I have is that there was no air conditioning - and the two days we were in Blenheim were stinking hot!
The place is a 2 minute stroll from the centre of town, it is basic, quiet,clean and cheap. The owner is lovely - very flexible when it comes to helping people out - he allowed us to check out, but leave our bags in the room while we sorted our car out, without charging extra. I would happily stay there again
