My husband and I needed a motel for 5 days that provided a wheelchair accessible room for 5 days at very short notice - the Aston Court fulfilled our needs entirely. Our room number 8 was a 1 bedroomed apartment very clean with a good sized lounge area, kitchen area with full sized fridge and more importantly the bathroom had loads of room and a non slip floor. The only disadvantage was that the bathroom did not have a wall mounted seat or bathing stool but this was noted by the management and I am sure this will be addressed in future. Next door to the motel was a pub called the Sutherland arms and you could eat there and charge back to the hotel - again the staff there were so friendly, no problem to get my wheelchair in. The pub is going to change management and I feel this will add extra benefit to the motel - a little glitch in the plans meant that due to the Christchurch earthquake some of the new fixtures and fittings were delayed but I am sure this will eventually be overcome. The motel is close to the town centre, a New World supermarket is nearby and an excellent base for touring the numerous vineyards surrounding Blenheim. Can recommend Highfield Vineyard for a meal - great on a sunny day.
Only disadvantage was internet voucher given by motel was for limited download and extra Mgb cost 10$ per time and you didn't get much download for your money.
