“great location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

This hotel has really cute rooms, it had been newly renovated in early 2012 and has a fabulous location. One can easily walk from the hotel to the town center where all the activities take place.
The hotel staff was also very helpful and suggested a great places to us for visiting!
Must plan your trips around the wine festival that takes place sometime in February.

What a pleasure to find a hotel that gives you a feeling of 'light' throughout . . The rooms are fresh and the decor is white with very attractive lighting. The queen bed was wonderfully comfortable and the room had two armchairs and a stool but would have benefited from an upright chair to use at the table/desk. There was a large LCD tv with an good range of channels. The bathroom, though not that spacious, was very well equipped with a large shower cabinet and excellent lighting. It was great to have an electronic safe in the room and efficient air conditioning. We were on the ground floor with a view of the small swimming pool - water a little too warm on that hot day.
We very much enjoyed our short stay and would certainly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: This hotel is located on a very quiet street but it was particularly pleasant to face the swimming p...

Thank you very much for your review. The refurbishment took into account a substantial number of guest comments and we were very conscious of lighting up the property. Hope to see you again if you are ever back in New Zealand. regards

Really enjoyed the hotel, very comfortable and centrally located. All shops within walking distance and only a 25 minute drive to Picton.
Would definitely stay again and look forward to the chance of staying at another one of the chain.

The Scenic hotel in Blenheim was an excellent hotel. We stayed 1 night during a trip on the south island, and it was by far the best of the trip. It's a new hotel, with clean and nicely designed rooms where the details were right. The shower was excellent.

We didn't try the restaurant as it was closed for breakfast, a bit strange.

It's located centrally, about 5 min walk to downtown Blenheim. Free parking is provided.

Thank you for taking time to review our hotel. We are very pleased that you enjoyed our hotel, however slightly confused upon your comment in regards to our restaurant, as the restaurant and bar are open all day. I would be more than happy to clarify this if you wished to contact the hotel directly. If you come back to the South Island again, please look us up. Kind regards

We stayed at the Scenic Hotel in Blenheim for two nights. The hotel was newly renovated and our room was very modern and clean. The hotel is located centrally and can be recommended as a good base to explore Blenheim and the wine region. Another hotel of the Scenic chain which met our requirements.
