“Great Motel for overnight stay”
Reviewed June 23, 2010

We stopped in Blenheim mainly to see the Aircraft Heritage Museum as we drove from Nelson to Kaikoura. This is a typical small (10 units) motel, but well presented, clean and comfortable and with excellent hosts with good local knowledge. There is a supermarket directly opposite, but it is about 10 minutes drive to restaurants in the Blenheim Town Centre. The motel is close to the Museum, and to several wineries. We would stay there again if passing through.

Very well established, traditional motel set on the edge of town on one of the main roads. Nothing fancy but very well kept, spotlessly clean, good value and excellent hosts. We broke our journey here on our way to Nelson from Kaikoura and it fitted the bill perfectly, although I would not like to spend more than 1 night here.

We stayed in this motel for our last night before returning to Wellington.
We recommend this motel to anyone. We had friendly help from the owners/tenants with the wifi in the room. The room (7) was great and we had no noise from the road.

We picked this motel because of other reviews and we weren't disappointed.

The welcome from Dorothy (the owner/operator) was great. The unit was spotlessly clean with a living space which had an extra double bed in it, a dining table and chairs, and a good kitchen area with ample workspace. There was a washing line outside the back door and an area to sit in if you wanted to. There is also a small swimming pool, though the water was too cold for me...

We only stayed one night, before the ferry from Picton to the North Island, but I would definitely stay there again.

The Asure group of motels is a relatively new grouping. Doug and Dorothy, who own this motel, are instrumental in setting up the group, and were eager to help by booking us into other Asure motels in the North Island. The service here was excellent.

Excellent location on way in to Blenheim from Nelson and conveniently right opposite a supermarket. Very welcoming and friendly hosts and extremely well furnished/equiped room with all kinds of little extras we normally associate with 4 star hotels. In fact we made a detour to be able to saty here again towards the end of our South Island trip as it is only 25 minutes from Picton ferry.

Our unit was very clean and very well equipped, parking was right outside the door.
Hosts were very friendly and helpful and organised our wine tour for us.
Restaurant was just a short walk away and the ASURE Sundowner Motel was directly opposite a supermarket and shopping mall.
Great swimming pool, especially with Marlborough's high summer temperatures while we were there.
