Lovely, one night stay at this beautiful motel. We stayed upstairs and had a beautiful view of the river and the weather was gorgeous! Modern, clean and reasonably priced, we would definately stay here again if we are ever in Blenheim and would recommend to others. Thanks for a lovely stay!

What a great spot for a two night stop on our way to the West Coast. After a lovely trip on the ferry it was a breeze to drive 30 minutes to the motel so we could be ready to get out around the wineries the next day. The Waterfront had everything we needed and we appreciated the spacious room with a great view and the location was brilliant. The pub next door served great steaks! We drove round the wineries the next day and decided on Wither Hills for a long lunch. We actually returned to the motel and taxied back to Wither Hills. We fitted in the Wine Station late in the afternoon then strolled back to the motel. A very friendly and welcoming team thanks Lisa 🌟

The motel is right in the centre of Blenheim town, so very industrial. It was nice to have a view of the river from the apartment on the other side. Only a short stroll into town to get food or go to the shops. Ammenities were a little basic but they did the job and was only a short trip into the main wine region to visit some of the vineyards.
