Stayed here for the St Clair Half Marathon and was blown away by this lovely hotel. Would recommend it to anyone staying in Blenheim. Staff really friendly and helpful - rooms were clean and modern and the bed has to be one of the most comfortable I have slept in. Private spa a real bonus after a half marathon.

Spent just one night while in Marlbrough. Hotel was newly rennovated, quite and comfortable and just a stones through from the town center. Staff very friendly, will definately stay again on our next trip to Blenheim.

Room Tip: try the second floor over looking the pool. Double glazing keeps the noise out.

The staff bent over backwards for us. They helped organised a wine tour for us, room service was excellent. Rooms were exceptionally comfortable. Bed was amazing. Spa and sauna you can book privately so you get an hour or two to yourself. Breakfast finishes a little early in my opinion at 9 o'clock. Would definitely stay here again it's so clean and tidy.

I arrived after midnight, after a long strenuous drive. At reception I was greeted cordially, and was given the option of either parking in front of the hotel, or around the back. The room was on level one, the lift was cranky. My son and I ordered late night food, which hit the spot! The curtains covered the windows nicely, to get a wonderful nights sleep. In the morning the breakfast was delightful, I downed a few fresh fruit shots, never seen anywhere else. The waiter was friendly, made Matt and I feel special. All up it was a comfortable stay.

Room Tip: "Overlooking the pool is nice"

We stayed here for one night. The room was great, recently remodeled. At the time the rest of the hotel was being remodeled so it was a bit of an eye sore. I believe it is done now though so I am sure it would look better. The staff were very nice and accommodating, even recommending restaurants. It was the only hotel on our tour that could not accommodate a toaster in room. I would say that the internet was very over priced considering most hotels on our trip offered free use. The spa area you could book out, it was very nice and relaxing in the winter months.

The Scenic Hotel in Blenheim was a great choice for us, handy to town and amenities. Had a great room on 3rd floor, quiet and SUPER comfy bed! The staff were lovely and we would return without hesitation.

Room Tip: We had a superior studio room - was smallish but really you don't need more than that : ) for a...
