This small hotel was a bank. It does not have the amenities of a new hotel, but, has loads of charm and is well worth it! Chris the owner/manager is everywhere & intent on making our stay memorable. we loved our stay

Casual restaurant with sensationel food and very friendly service.

The only restaurant in the region in witch we could eat wagyu beef. Sensationel quality. Aswell we had bite size portion to create our own degustation menu witch is very interesting. The prices are not to high, the restaurant staff is friendly and had always time for a word with us.

Our family celebrated my daughters 18th birthday at Hotel d"Urville ,we had the most amazing experience,the service was first class,meals which we are still raving about to friends ,Maree and all the other amazing chefs cooked the steaks and pork to perfection.
We had 3 courses each and thoughly enjoyed every course,we would highly recommend that you dine at d"urville we have travelled and eaten at a number of Restaurants both here and overseas and this would have to rate as one of the best.
We were very pleased with the prices of the dishes and drinks,have eaten at other Restaurants around the area and payed around the same price or more and
haven't gotten the quality of meal we received at d'urville .
Once again we couldn't fault anything with the meal or service and would highly recommend.

We had a fantastic meal here. Recommended to us was the bistro or early bird menu. 30 dollars a head got us an excellent 3 course meal. Well cooked and presented, friendly service. Outstanding value.

My husband and I were wondering in Blenheim center and we saw this nice hotel. We wanted to have a nice dinner after the whole day's travel. We checked the menu and were interested in trying out their dishes. Their starters were good, but the main courses are quite disappointing. My husband ordered lamp, which was just ok. I ordered Freedom Farms Pork Loin. When the dish was served, it looked so fatty that i was thinking how i was going to eat it. More than half of it was fat. I did ask the waitress whether this dish is supposed to be so fatty. She answered that the fat would give the food some flavor. As i was eating and cutting away the fat, i felt more and more disgusted, as i had to constantly separate fat from meat. When i finished eating it, i told the waitress that i was disappointed with the dish. After some time, another waitress approached me saying that in order to make up for it, they can offer me a dessert for free, but my husband will have to order one himself. Their excuse for the fatty dish was that someone sold them a very fat pig.
