Three of us were arriving for the Sew Marlborough mini symposium. Communication with the motel proprietors since booking was excellent. Julie was able to cope with our changing numbers and on our arrival managed to secure us a unit that would accommodate 3 of us. The unit was a good size allowing us to eat, sleep and socialise in comfort.... More

This motel is getting a bit dated. My studio room was small and dark. Only cooking facility was a microwave. 5 min walk to main shops including supermarkets and good cafes. You need your own transport to get to other attractions such as vineyards - several great vineyard restaurants in the region.....or there are cycle trails and bike hire in... More

We are regular Bella Vista customers around New Zealand, and the Bella Vista Blenheim measures up to others we’ve stayed in. Comfortable, not badly priced if you choose a compact or at least a not-too-large unit, and less than 10 minutes walk to the shopping centre where there’s a good choice of restaurants. Reception services were very good, and offered... More

RELIABLE. *Please note....I don't normally rate accommodation 'excellent', but this is based on our overall experience as well as the facilities. We had car troubles, and for a number of reasons the hosts at Bella Vista were very accommodating. The chain of Bella Vista hotels have devised an 'expected' format for the delivery of standardised accommodation for its clients. We... More

Thank you thats lovely!, We have the bathrooms on our painting list, just waiting for a lull to get the painter in there. I am going to add a showerdome to try and keep the paint work from needing to be done every year! So glad you enjoyed your stay. More

Stayed in Blenheim overnight at the Bella Vista - friendly service, clean and tidy room, and a quiet night's sleep. I particularly appreciated the complementary milk served in a proper glass bottle with a resealable top - what a great idea to minimise packaging.

I am sorry you were not happy with your room, Most of our reviews rave about our cleanliness and it is something we pride ourselves on, we are undertaking a review of the cups in the room and find a few with tea stains after the guests have washed the cups themselves. There is no excuse for a lipstick mark... More

I did not book this myself and it was booked quite late so we probably did not get the pick of the rooms. What we did get was small but clean and with all that was needed for one night. The central location meant that eating out was easy. Fine for one night, but if staying longer go for a... More

Stayed for 2 nights visiting family. Good being close to central area - cafes, restaurants & supermarket .A huge plus for some people would be that these motels are dog friendly.Small unit with limited privacy.

A Nice motel, it was maybe about 800mtrs to the center of town. Small rooms but very neat and tidy. There was no hairdryer. Parking was off the street and easily accessible. This time we had 2 separate rooms, one upstairs one down. The overall cost was on par with what we have been paying.

Thank you for your review, I am sorry you did not ask about the hairdryer, it is heavily disguised by being on the wall next to the mirror in the main lounge/ bedroom area. As it is not in the bathroom many of our guests miss it. We also have portable hairdryers available on request. More
