“One of the better hotels Ive stayed at”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Travelling around the country fairly frequently for business at the moment & must say the Scenic is one of the nicest. Bathroom facilitiies rate highly with me ....great roomy, easily accessible shower, excellent complimentary bathroom products & good lighting.
Mini bar stocked with almost anything you might want (though probably a bit dangerous cost wise if you got carried away!)
Enjoyed dining in the restaurant & very friendly service.

Stayed April 2013, traveled on business

very comfortable, clean and modern. I was very impressed with every aspect ot the Scenic Hotel. The resteraunt was excellent as well. The staff were probably the friendliest and most helpful I have ever experience, and I travel a lot.

The Scenic is a smart stylish hotel within walking distance of the centre of the lovely little town of Blenheim. Our room on the top floor was very well appointed and comfortable, but quite compact with sloping ceilings and velux windows, so not much of a view. The position is great for tours of the Marlborough vineyards.

Fantastic base for exploring the Blenheim area. The rooms are very tidy and modern, exactly the way we want a hotel room to be! Def would consider to stay again. One of the best rooms we stayed in during our stay in NZ. Loved it!

Hotel was very modern in the centrum of small town of Blenheim. Our room was big and nice, we had very relaxing time there, making some laundry and enjoying sun at the pool. Best was of course visits to various wine yards around Blenheim.

Room Tip: Good place to stay for making wine tours

Looking for last minute accommodation this is where we ended up - it was fabulously priced/cheap even as it has just completed a brand new renovation throughout. The hotel is well located right in town. A great stay overall. However the restaurant was expensive for in house food, mains all around $40 and nothing exceptional, however the food was delicious....

Coolness greets you the moment I stepped into the room. The room gives you a sense of freshness from the warm summer mild heat. It has a clean cut look and lots of channel to watch. Best of all the internet is free but wireless is chargeable at a small fee - Should have given free but better than hotels in Wellington where every hotel charges.

The toiletries was luxurious but I hope they provide room slippers. I always bring one along..a pair of light but cheap rubber Japanese slippers.

The in-house kettle was absolutely clean I must say in most NZ hotels unlike elsewhere I have been.

Another tip for those who need to iron, do not use the inhouse iron as they are using dirty and ruin your clothes, buy one traveling steamer instead, it always work on my already iron shirt and coat. If you do not have one, use the steam shot function from the iron without touching your clothes. Also a hair dryer can be used to even out crease on woollen coat, try it, you will be surprised.

The staff makes you feel welcome and are helpful in giving directions. If you wish to stock up, like I always do, there is a supermarket not far to walk from the hotel.

There is also a small but nice park in front of the hotel and it is really nice for a quiet and peaceful holiday ( I wish I was but got to work!) Absolutely good for honeymooners and retirement. Good for doing Yoga or Taichi too. In the evening, the air is crisp and fresh!

When I was there on Sundays the shops were closed so I headed back to the hotel restuarant and had the nice fish steak. In the morning, I ordered a waffle and it is the most delicious!

There is a self service laundry area but as usual when you are rushing from place to place there is no time for laundry.

Oh sorry forgot to mention the be careful part....I nearly cut my fingers opening the cupboard doors as the handles had sharp edges and although the aircon was powerful, the slowest speed was still too powerful...no complaints though.

Hope you enjoy your stay!
