We only stayed the one night in a one bedroom unit with our friends. The bedroom had a double and single bed and the lounge had two single beds in it (one made up as a couch). You can walk very easily here to "downtown" Blenheim, the supermarket and the river. There is a lovely walk along the river so...

This place is not the Hilton, or even close, but it does what it says on the box. I stayed in the backpackers dorm for $25 per night, and was perfectly happy with what I got for that. Staff were friendly and helpful, as I was driving up after work on a Friday night, I rang to check if it...

I booked for two nights online using my mobile phone. Not all cheap motels are bad but this one is not recommended. I was greeted by the friendly proprietor on arrival. The room I was given was 1960' decor, no problem there. The room reeks of stale cigarette smoke. There were permanent resident kids riding bike past the window doing...

We booked into Bings very last minute due to some family circumstances. The staff were so friendly, helpful and accommodating. So close to town, very clean and well fitted out. They are very basic units but all that we needed as a family of 5.

Step back in time and enjoy 1960s style motel accommodation in the heart of Blenheim. Concrete block buildings, complete with carports, two tennis courts, newly mown lawns, and swings. Rooms include Atlas Chalet single element + griller stoves, comfortable beds, hot showers, toasters, generous sized crockery. Its all there and functioning.

Quaint motel, clean and comfortable. We have stayed many times over the years...Very convenient to town. Great place to stay if travelling on a budget. I did find the bed uncomfortable, but went and purchased a topper, which sorted that..Yes, it does need updating, but if that occurred, you would not get the cheap rate. would stay again.

All necessary amenities. Clean and walking distance to town. However we ended up pulling the mattress onto the floor to sleep as the mattress and base was well past its use by date and offered no support. We would be happy to stay here again if the bed was in better condition.

We stayed here because the Tourist info said it was cheap and comfotable. It was both. When we got there it did not look inviting and the decor of the rooms was ordinary. Having said that the bed was probably one of the best I have slept in. The rooms were clean and tidy. OK for an overnight stay but...
