Appreciated the welcoming, friendly host, the unit was nice and clean. I got a fabulous recommd for nearby take away lovely fresh blue cod and fat free chips for dinner. The Unit was nicely warmed up ready for a great sleep before my big drive south.
The supermarket accross the road was handy and had friendly staff too.

Dorothy and Doug are well suited in their roles as moteliers and run a very well organised motel.
If you are looking for clean, well appointed, easy accessible and flexible accomodation then Sundowner is your best option to stay at in Blenheim. We have stayed before and visiting elderly family nearby meant this was the ideal spot. Dorothy and Doug assist with anything - just ask !
We had extra people arrive last minute who could be accommodated and our previous stay had lots of other little issues that were easily dealt with - sending faxes, iced over car windscreens, last minute bookings, our laundry done for us and after our most recent trip they have even done another favour when asked as we are based in the North Island.Nothing seems to be too much trouble for this team.
We encourage you to enhance your stay and try the Sundowner ! Marie and John

Room Tip: We just stayed in room 3 and has the hugest spa bath ! two king beds with separated sleeping quarter...

Always stay with Dorothy and Doug when visiting family in Blenheim. The cleanest, best motel we stay at around the country. Post Shop/chemist/supermarket across the road. Highly recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Hosts always give us the King executive suite if possible. Nice quiet area at back, with line to dry...

Comfortable stay, quiet room, 20mins walk from town, parking right outside unit, basic kitchen facilities, plenty of room to spread out, outdoor swimming pool (not heated, swimming towels were provided tho). Friendly and helpful hosts.

Only real downside - no free internet (very expensive).

Just 20 minutes from Picton, and close to the town centre, this motel is very well placed for a long holiday or even an overnight to connect with the ferry. We have been staying here for several years, and find the rooms spacious, spotlessly clean and quiet. The hosts are marvellous, friendly and helpful.
The supermarket is just a 1 minute walk across the road, and the town centre a short drive or pleasant walk along the riverbank.
We had a wonderful cycling holiday around Marlborough last year, basing ourselves at the Sundowner.
