No wait, it's a hotel with many differences! It is different to nearly every hotel I have ever stayed in. It respects the old Public Trust building it is in, but not only that, it makes fantastic features out of the old building, such as amazing thick doors, cast iron radiators, stone walls, and so on. Each room is different... More

A fantastic hotel right in the centre of Blenheim and within easy travelling distance of the main vineyards. The rooms were exceptional, superbly decorated, comfortable and furnished with great taste (we stayed in the Angel Room). The lovely lady on reception (sorry I cant remember her name) was so welcoming, offered great advice and went out of her way to... More

I've stayed here a lot on business trips, it's a nice place with all the rooms having a unique personality. Sometimes the wifi isn't reliable which is an inconvenience when you need to get work done or call home cheaply but otherwise I have little to complain about. There is always a warm welcome and a good night's sleep.

This hotel has an eclectic range of rooms with broad themes. All of the rooms have been carefully decorated, with some great - and others a bit unusual. I've stayed here often over the years and enjoy the quirky decor- it is certainly interesting. My favorite is the corner room with the nautical theme. The restaurant is great and I... More

Great beds, friendly staff, on the high street. Quirky rooms with mini bar and a fantastic shower! The complimentary Port was a lovely touch at the end of the evening, after a fantastic meal in the restaurant.

My husband and I chose the hotel for its proximity to the wonderful Blenheim wineries. Pluses include on site parking; location to in town eateries. Size of our room was unusual as it was long and narrow. We had twin sized sleigh beds which were oversized and very comfortable. In addition they had electric blankets which proved useful to take...

We stayed two nights in the large d'Urville room. It was very well appointed and decorated with pictures and furniture totally in keeping with the theme of the hotel about the French explorer and cartographer Dumont d' Urville. The building is a converted Public Trust office with large vault type doors in evidence to lend authenticity. Although in the middle... More
