“Friendly and Helpful Reception”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Clean and comfortable little studio. Super friendly and helpful. Suggestion of dinner accross the road was much appreciated and would recommend a stay. There is a pool on site although we did not use it. Blenheim centre of town close by.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

Average Motel in average location.
This was a clean motel unit, in rather old style motel complex. (two single beds in one bedroom and double bed in lounge). These were comfortable enough for the one night that we stayed after arriving in Picton on the interisland ferry.
The gentleman who booked us in was very helpful and friendly. The town of Blenheim is a car-ride away and this is located on the way out of town heading to Christchurch.
There is a lovely swimming pool available for guests (if this is what you are looking for).
No complaints.

We find we are at the ideal place, when people come off the ferry at Picton and by the time they get to Blenheim, especially at night, Christchurch is a place to far. The centre of Blenheim is 10 minutes walk from the motel, with shops and fast food restaurants 5 minutes walk. Thank you for taking the time to submit the review.

It's a typical motel. the rooms are quiet and clean. The center of Blenheim is around five minutes away by car. The vineyards are between fifteen and twenty minutes away by car. Good accommodation if somebody has children. There is a swimmingpool and play area. Maybe Blenheim is the better choice for staying as Picton.

We could not help but agree that Blenheim is a better place to stay than Picton, but then we are biased. We agree with all your comments, and thank you for taking the time to submit your review.
