My third stay at the Lugano Blenheim.
Spotless, Super Clean, Inviting, Fresh, Comfortable, Close to town
Jenny and Murray (and their cleaning crew) have made this a very nice place to stay and unwind when in Blenheim
This one ticks all the boxes.

Hosts Jenny and Murray were most welcoming and helpful. They were on call at all hours and assisted with various practical needs I had. On top of that, the accommodation was very comfortable, clean, quiet, sunny, fresh refreshments, softest carpet, lovely hot water, everything there I needed (iron, milk, shampoo, copious towels, tv guide, newspaper, telephone, wifi...). Only a short walk to all of the shops and lovely Seymore Park. A most enjoyable 3 night, 4 day stay. I would stay again.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. We really appreciate you doing one for us. We are pleased you found the room to your liking. As you say it is lovely having Seymour Gardens across the road, it's a great outlook from the motel and we are lucky being so close to town that it is just a short stroll to restaurants,cafes etc. Hopefully we will see you again if you are back in Blenheim. Kind regards Jenny & Murray

We arrived in Blenhiem with no accommodation in mind drove around and found Langano Motor Lodge we ended up staying two nights and found our unit spotless and warm, only a short walk to the CBD the park across the road gives a great view of the fountain, I packed my maccona coffee as we dislike the usual Motel coffee presto Lugano has maccona. Murray and Jenny are wonderful hosts and we wish them all the best in the future.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. We appreciate your comments. As you say it is a great location being so close to the town centre and across the road from the lovely Seymour Gardens. The fountain looks fabulous at night when it's lit up with the coloured lights. Often it's the little things that make a difference to your stay - like the Moccona coffee. Hopefully we will see you back with us again sometime. Kind regards Jenny & Murray

Stayed one night at the Lugano Blenheim. First impressions, extremely friendly and a very helpful manager. Explained there was a small mark on the wall caused by the previous tenant. This mark was about two centimetres long, you could hardly see it.Neverless he took time to tell me!
Unit itself was immaculate with attention to detail all over, with quality fittings.
When speaking to the manager and complimenting him, he as first to thank his cleaners, whom he said they loved what they do. It shows, because there was not a speck of dust anywhere, it was evident that they took pride in their work.
The Lugano exceeded my expectations and I would not hesitate to stay there again. A great location.

Room Tip: Room that I had was 8B. But suggest with the look of the place, all rooms would be the same standard

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. We appreciate your comments as did our team of cleaners. We printed your review off and gave to them. One of our girls was so thrilled she took it home and put it on her fridge. As you can imagine we couldn't maintain our high standards without them. We have now painted the wall so the mark is gone which as you say wasn't too bad but when we know something is not quite right we like to fix as soon as we can. We hope we will see you back in Blenheim again sometime. Kind regards Jenny & Murray

Stayed here with my wife over the Queens Birthday weekend, while attending a conference in Blenheim. Very pleasant hosts, with clean and tidy rooms. No road noise and within five minutes walking distance of the CBD of the town, even less to the nearest cafe. The park opposite was very nice to walk through, even at night with the fountain lit up with lights. Recommended place to stay. Would stay here again without thinking about it.
