Thanks to Donna for a great last-minute stay earlier in the month - she was extremely helpful to two weary travellers! Great location, really close to town, and a very comfortable and clean room. Very happy we stayed here!

What a great place to stay. Owners were very friendly and professional. If you haven't been to blenhiem before book here because you can rest assured you will get what your after. There are a lot of substandard motels in the area that we made the mistake of going to.

We were evacuated from our home in Spring Creek due to flooding. Donna the host took care to ensure that we had everything we needed for our late minute stay. We also had a child that was unwell and she checked on us several times. The units were some of the cleanest and best equipped we have stayed in. Perfect location, close to town. Thanks again to Donna and Paul for looking after us so well, in what was a difficult time for our family of 5.

The managers (Donna and Paul) are very friendly and couldn't do enough to make sure we had everything we needed and knew where to go in town. I was there for business and the location is an easy walk to the convention centre and/or town, cafe's and restaurants. Our room was very clean and amenities and facilities provided are in great condition. Very happy with our choice to stay here.

My friend and I stayed at the hotel and were unhappy. I later emailed the owner who ignored my feedback and blamed me. I have no qualms about this review because I have contacted the owner soon after staying there and they were not interested. I booked the perfect room for my friend and I but then we had to change rooms so another couple could use the room instead of us. We were told our new room was an upgrade but that was a complete lie because the new room was awful so we ended up changing rooms...again. My friend loved Blenheim but all we talked about was the awful experience at the hotel and how they made mistake after mistake. The owners don’t mind though because they’ve got our money so what do they care? Beware.
