Scenic Hotel Marlborough
Ranked #4 of 32 Hotels in Blenheim
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 13, 2014

Lovely room with a view of the Wither Hills. The staff and the service were first class. The hotel restaurant serves world class food and wines and, again, the service was amazing. The view at night of the fountain which changes colour in the park opposite enhances your dining experience. There's a guest laundry too - something you don't see in good hotels these days. Very handy when you are travelling for a while. Highly recommend this hotel in the interesting town of Blenheim (not to mention the fabulous Marlborough wine region).

At the end of a drive, the room and food was all we were after...
Reception were friendly and helpful. The room warm comfortable and well appointed.... Enough to encourage us to 'dine in'. Dinner turned out to be 'fine dining' underpinned by the chef at the time, and the staff who were knowledgeable, friendly and willing to recommend excellent local wine. More than a 'room' we continued our journey well rested and well fed.

Located about 10 minutes walk to the center of Blenheim.
Very clean well kept rooms. Very comfy beds and generally cosy and quiet. Big heatpumps that we mostly had off as room was warm. There were windows to open for fresh air.
Nice big shower, no bath. we liked the fact the mini bar had toothpaste and a tooth brush to buy.
Good parking. Very nice helpful staff and a personal touch card on arrival in the room. Good choice at breakfast ($22 for continental). We paid $145 on a deal for the room which was very reasonable.

Well located close to the cbd of Blenheim. Rooms are tidy, excellent bed. Shame that it lacks its own gymnasium. Reception staff were excellent and so friendly. Restaurant OK. Nice and clean, overall I would stay again.

Thank you for your review. It is good to hear that you enjoyed your stay and would return and particularly good to hear how welcoming our team was. I am sorry that we do not have a gymnasium here but we do have an arrangement with a local gym where our guests can use their facilities free of charge.

I hope to be able to welcome you in the near future.

I spent two full work weeks at Scenic so it became my home away from home while in Blenheim. The rooms are fairly standard hotel fare but the beds were amongst the best I have experienced and the pillows were excellent. The very good shower is a large walk in affair and quite big enough for two people. If you have a room on the upper floor there are skylights built into the ceiling structure and nifty automatic blinds to shut out the light at night. The only drawers are a couple of shallow ones built into the front of the bed. I liked that the room had an umbrella - a nice touch as rained on a couple of days during my stay. Heating is provided by a heat pump but given the size of the room a wall panel heater would have been adequate and provided more pleasant heat. I used the restaurant twice for dinner and no complaints. Scenic Hotel is across the road from Seymour Square which became my favourite spot while walking to and from town. It has a lovely fountain that is lit at night and in combination with the clock tower and well kept gardens makes a lovely environment.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper level have skylights with nifty automatic blinds

Dear John

First of all a huge thank you for staying with us - particularly for such a long stay. I am very pleased to hear that you enjoyed staying here and hope to see you again.

I must agree that a wall heater would be sufficient for the size of the rooms but the heat pumps do have the added advantage of cooling the rooms during the summer months - definitely a plus at that time of year!

Thanks once again.

With best wishes
