“Nice place to stay in Blenheim”
Reviewed October 30, 2011

We had a lovely three night stay at Chateau Marlborough. The rooms were clean and nice, though our view was uninteresting. The hotel was a few blocks from the main area in town and near lots of wineries. We had a really good lunch at the hotel here.

Overall, it was nothing exceptional, but I would stay there again.

The check in went well with a very pleasant lady on the desk.We were given 2 drink vouchers to use should we decide to dine in, as we were out at dinner time can not comment on meals.
Our room on the ground floor was spacious and very comfortable--except the TV, it could only be viewed from the bed it was positioned on the wall behind the lounge that faced the bed,to me a strange set up.When checking out I did comment on this and was told that clients liked to view TV from the bed.I wanted to watch the mid day news.
The bathroom --not a hook,rail or shelf in site to put clothes surely these would be an essential requirement for any bathroom.
The cost, $249NZ room only, maybe this is a standard price for Blenheim if visiting the area again I would look for somewhere where I can hang my clothes in the bathroom and watch TV without sitting in bed

Everything was great about this hotel except for the fact that we had a street-side room and when the road-sweeper did its work at 6am on Sunday mornng, the truck may as well have been in the room with us. We understand that the hotel has recently had a big refurbishment - its a shame that they missed out the double-glazing.

Staying only one night on my trip around the south Island felt like a mistake as we should have stayed for a week. The staff were amazing and very friendly, upon checking in we discovered our room did not have seperate bedding and with 5 mins we had a new room and a beverage voucher for the bar! We decided to eat at the hotel that evening and we where treated to an amazing meal. I will be back next year and this time I am planning to stay longer!

We looked around Blenheim for a place to suit a family of 5 that met all our needs. We found everything we wanted at the Chateau. For the 3 teenagers, we had an adjoining room, which gave us family space and separation. Close promimity to the city, in fact being right in the city precint, meant we could walk to all amenities.

Our rooms were spacious, and well appointed, with modern and tastefull decor. Staff were courteous, polite, and helpfull, and tremendous ambasadors for the hotel, and for the region with great knowledge of places to go and see.

We dined in the restaurant, and enjoyed a variety of options for breakfasts, with catered for the diverse "needs" of 3 teenagers. Dinners were really enjoyable. Fresh local produce and local wines, excellent food, plenty of choices, and well presented. The staff were professional and attentive, friendly and relaxed.

We found the Chateau a tremendous place to use as a base to explore from, but a place to look forward too to come back too at the end of the day. In fact so much so, that we spent one day just relaxing and chilling by the pool!!!!!

No hesitation whatso-ever in recommending the Chateau to friends or anyone!! As a family who have travelled widely throughout the world, 10 out of 10 for the Chateau!!!

My wife was unfortunately suffering from a migraine when we stayed at this hotel earlier in the year. She was given the most sympathetic and helpful assistance possible by the reception staff, from allowing us into the room several hours earlier than usual to cooling the room before our arrival. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the staff were all extremely friendly and accommodating. The bed was the most comfortable we had in a month of staying in high quality hotels in NZ. We would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel and would certainly stay there again ourselves in the future.
