“Lovely Little Stay - Cottage”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Stayed one night here in the cottage at the back of the property. The cottage was clean, modern and had everything you need in it for a comfortable stay. Hosts were very helpful suggesting a really great place for dinner and no problem with me locking our keys in the cottage. If you want an affordable and pleasant night in Blenheim then this won't disappoint. I would stay here again for sure. Thank you.

Room Tip: We stayed in the cottage - great choice for a couple.

Sadly we had to cancel our pencilled in accommodation due to a sporting tournment changing, (while we didn't pay as my debit card was playing up he so kindly penciled us in. I had to ring Ian to tell of the changed plans and he was so graceous and based on his kind gesture alone we would recommend this accommodation!!!!...it was a messy situation for all. We wish them all the best with their gorgeous accommodation and hope that in the future we get to stay as planned
Kind regards.

Very pretty place only 10-15mins walk from the town centre. We stayed in the separate cottage which was clean and well appointed. Price was excellent especially compared to the rest of the B&B accommodation we researched in Blenheim.

The host was in the process of upgrading the cottage further as it had just been built. Nice and quiet with off street parking, comfortable beds and good hot shower.

The host Ian was really friendly and helpful, going out of his way to help make our weekend there smooth. It was clear he really takes pride in his accommodation and guests.

We were here for a wedding (5->7 April) but would be happy to use this as a base for exploring the whole region.

Room Tip: The garden cabin is a great way to go B&B without being on top of other guests. Check whether yo...

The place is a little bit outside the centre of Blenheim, but in a nice setting. There is a road next to the cabin we stayed in but no worries - there was no disturbance through the night.The host Ian was very welcoming. In my view a B&B should include the breakfast in the rate but it seems standard these days that breakfast is charged at an additional rate. The rate I think is a little on the high side, however the accommodation facilities was clean and okay. I think there is a great potential to create a really nice garden setting and it was obvious that the host is working towards this goal. What would add value is a better reception for TV and further channels. All in all a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Book the cabin

We stayed in the separate "cottage." Was great value for money - brand new cottage (still a Work in progress) however had everything we needed - ensuite etc. I think you would fail to find anywhere to this standard for this price. Would definitely recommend. Host was very friendly and helpful also.

Being from across the Whangamoas in Nelson, it is with a heavy heart that I can totally recommend a stay at Tresco B&B.

Our room was clean and tidy, with a spacious en suite and was really a great choice for us, staying in Belnheim for a wedding.

Ian is an attentive and congenial host, and even dropped us off at the winery where the wedding was held! Breakfast was the usual B&B continental affair, but elevated above the norm by the addition of homemade bread and homegrown fruit preserves.

Staying just one night, my wife and I wished we had booked another, just to continue enjoying the peace and tranquility. Cheers Ian!

Ian was extremely helpful with recommendations for the area and making calls on our behalf for reservations. Breakfast in NZ B&Bs tends to be continental and we had delicious fruit grown on his own trees, cereals, yogurt, and toast. For us personally, we prefer B&Bs that have separate spaces from owner's living spaces; you walk through his living room to get to the rooms. The house was really cute but the inside needs a little TLC and freshening. Our room was basic and clearn and bathroom was modern and nice.
