Chateau Marlborough impresses from Start to finish. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite for 2 nights. Suite had to very large bedrooms with private ensuites and extra large wardrobes. Clever windows allowed a fresh breeze into the rooms eliminating the need for air con. Our room had its own balcony with chairs and table over looking the mountains and had a decent sized kitchen with plenty of cupboard space and good quality crockery and cutlery.
We are in the restaurant on the last night and were well looked after by Brayden and the team. The food was excellent and the service was very friendly and accommodating. I would eat there if you get the chance.
I travel 20 times a year and this hotel is by far one of the best. Do yourself a favour and stay here!!

A very comfortable bed, plenty of room and we liked the kitchen which was well equipped. Very quiet, even though we had road frontage. Close to centre of the town; easy walk for shopping and good coffee- (Raupo). Will definitely stay there again.

The rooms were very modern, nicely furnished and well equipped. The pool was nice and we were able to take full advantage of it in the lovely sunny weather during our stay, although it could do with a few more loungers. Staff were friendly and helpful.

There was an earthquake on our second night there, which thanks to the comfy bed and quiet surroundings, we managed to sleep through!

Got a sweet deal on a room without a refurbished bathroom.Wasn't quite prepared for the 70's horror - original fittings and all! But excellent value (you dont sleep in the bathroom) and if you can avert your eyes and deal with it then the rest of it is brilliant.
It is a tight squeeze though, the old layout is not ideal, so if you need space in the bathroom/shower then look at the refurbished rooms instead.
Great bar staff, gave me top advice on local wine selection and finding the perfect Pinot - preferably one that doesn't taste like mud! Cant remember her name, but she was awesome!

Room Tip: Prepare yourself mentally for the hideous bathrooms and save a packet - everything else is top class

All "crew" so friendly and could not do enough to accommodate our wishes. The hotel was upgraded 4 years ago and is a delight. The garden too is restful. The pool and surrounds were a joy in the evning after a 30 degree day under a cloudless sky.
