Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Kay and Robin were so friendly and helpful! The room was very clean and spacious. It accommodated all our needs during our stay. The pool was so refreshing after a long day out in the sun. And the quiet and serene little brookside seating area was so lovely, surrounded by beautiful flowers and greenery. Highly recommend!

We spent one night at Admirals Motor Lodge and enjoyed the spacious-ness and comfy bed. While the carpet appeared to be new, there is obviously some more upgrades required, particularly in the very outdated bathroom. Aside though, pleasant stay. We were near the front of the complex and despite motel being on a main road, we did not hear any traffic noise.

Stayed in a studio room. Very very spacious...and the bed was fabulously comfy. Great shower, and the amenities in room suited us to a "tee". We thought the value was good and we would stay here again. It is also very handy to Springlands Retirement Village if you were visiting folks there.

Looks great from the outside, but the interior is very tired. Its clean and tidy, but you sink deep into an old stained sofa, the bed linen is not great, and the bathroom and kitchen are pretty horrible. With an interior update, this place could be a little gem. Given the previous 2 nights we stayed in motels with modern rooms, fantastic linen and modern bathrooms for this same price, this place was definitely over-priced

A lovely motel with friendly and flexible owners. Our 2 bedroom apartment (room 10) was clean with comfortable beds. A great spot for small or larger groups. Quiet and peaceful with supermarkets close by. Robin was so helpful and went out of his way to help, we had bikes and he put them in a separate locked area. They are in the process of doing up the motel so don't expect perfect, but I highly recommend it. Give Kay and Robin a call to get the best deal.

We stayed for six nights although initially booked for three. The quality of our room, its location to be used as a base for visiting local attractions and the Sounds further north, plus the many wide ranging facilities in Blenheim as well as the cleanliness of our room and the friendliness and professionalism of all the staff caused us to change our minds and double the length of our stay. Our room by motel standards and many hotel standards was big but not expensive, it was very good value for money. The thoroughness of the room daily service was exceptional.
