Great room with kitchenette and spa bath. Friendly proprietor and not far from the supermarket and tavern. Comfortable bed and a bonus in rainy New Zealand not musty smelling. Tea and coffee making facilities and parking.

Beautiful King room with full kitchen facilities . Extremely spacious and warm with extra bed . Highlight was the spa bath in the bathroom along with shower. Beautiful little motel inside and out . Although beside the road it is very quiet. Highly recommended.

The Admirals Motor Lodge is not in the center of Blenheim but its close enough to the central down town that its a 5 minute drive. The Hotel was nice and our room was quiet ( we were in the back section). Wifi and parking are good. The bed was comfortable and the kitchenette was nicely equipped.

I agree with others that the beds were uncomfortable (thin, slightly saggy mattress) but I still managed a good night's sleep. The ensuite bathroom was small (shower was cramped) but very clean. The manager/owner? lady was super friendly and helpful with advice like where to find a coin op laundry and when asked for a good fish n chips place,...

Spent a couple of nights at this motel. The unit we were in was very spacious and modern. The small pool was nice for a cooling off. The location is about 2-3km from the town centre. In it's immediate area is a large gas station with all the usual convenience store stuff, a Speights Alehouse pub/restaurant, a coffee shop and...

Motel room was clean but very tired and a lot of wear and tear, quite dated decor and furnishings. Beds were the worst I have ever slept on extremely hard! And felt like they were twenty years old. Shower is extremely small and not ideal for larger people. Would not recommend.

Stayed a night at this motel and wished that we stayed more nights. Had a 2 bedroom suites which has a working kitchen with all required cooking utensils. Friendly people all around and close to a cherry picking farm which has the most delicious cherries. Would have loved to stay longer to explore the surrounding winery.

Lovely place to stay, accommodating, clean and tidy. Highly recommended and good value for $140 a night. On check in was upgraded to gorgeous family suite and felt comfortable after a big day travelling.

Although Admirals Motor Lodge is a little bit away from the centre you should not dismiss it! It has a modern appearance as you enter with the white windows and brick built construction. Bigger than you think as it has another large block behind. Plenty of parking spaces. The room was large with a kitchen area with ample wardrobe space...
