Reviewed yesterday NEW

Clean warm room very close to town with great amenities. Staff were courteous and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. With an onsite bar and restaurant we didn't need to leave! An overall excellent experience.

I stayed here for two nights in May 2017. The hotel is clean and comfortable with friendly staff. This is not my first stay here and would definitely stay here again. The rooms are well appointed considering the price although the bathroom is tight and the lift is a little slow. I ate in the restaurant on the first night...

A great place to stay, so close to the city centre, but on a quiet street. Staff were friendly and helpful, the reception area was spacious and our room was comfortable and spotlessly clean. We shall stay here again on our next visit

The hotel is conveniently placed in the centre, but Blenheim is a quiet centre. The hotel was comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. As with the previous Scenic Hotel we had stayed in on North Island the grounds of the hotel were delightful.

Felt really good staying at the Scenic Hotel. Carpark is off street and free, access to room without walking through reception all the time is a nice change too. We really found the location great and quiet too.

Stayed for three nights on business and found the hotel to be well located for me. Just over 5 minute drive to/from Blenheim Airport and a two minute walk into the city centre, where there's a good choice of bars, cafes and restaurants. I stayed in a Superior double. It was clean, reasonably spacious, quiet and everything worked, including the...

This is a wonderful little hotel with a great homely feel. The staff make you feel part of the family and nothing is too much trouble. We had a lovely sit down set menu for dinner all accompanied with a selection of wines. The room was very comfortable. I'd definitely come back again.
