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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great rooms and a great team running the place - thank you for a great stay. Highly recommended to anyone wanting a good room at a good rate. Easy access to/from the site with a pub, takeaway, bottle-store, coffee cart all within a 3-4 minute walk away. Ease of access to SH-6 and the town centre.

Good location, close to Picton. Manager friendly and helpful, especially when washer wouldn't start. Rang an engineer whilst I was in the laundry and got it going. Money collection drawer missing so a $2 coin inserted multiple times got everything done 😀. Disabled room (not required or requested) had wet room shower. Curtain old and dirty, shower pressure poor and water ran out into wet room towards bedroom door. Poor room layout, only 1 breakfast stool so one of us had to stand to eat breakfast 😞.

I rung to book a room for 3 nights then had to change the booking to 4 nights for which we were charged an extra $10 because apparently he had to move people around!!!!! On arriving the manager was not friendly at all, i paid for the 4 nights to discover the next morning that he had overcharged me….. i talked to the manager ( who has the personality of a wet fish) about the overcharge and as we had booked another 2 nights for our daughter I asked him to take the overcharge off her room but he wasn’t having any part of that, saying we will just leave it as is…. I try to talk to him but he wasn’t having any part of it….. He is a very rude arrogant man….. Would not ever stay there again or recommend it to anyone…..

We got into the room pulled the sheets back and there were hairs, I found a total of 4 hairs in just one bed! Yellow stains all over the sheets and the manager was very rude, he refused to give us a refund and told us to suck it up. And when we told him there was a hair in the bed he said he wasn’t surprised! If you are considering coming here, DONT!

The room had been updated. It was clean and tidy. The room was warm and private. The bed was hard and on angle. Shower pressure was poor. The sliding door barely fit the runner and could've easily been popped out. Was cheap so didnt expect it to be fabulous. Probably won't book here again.

I can only reiterate what others have said, The owner/manager of this Motel should seriously re-think his place in the hospitality industry. He was rude, off-hand, and we will never stay here again. The room was clean and tidy (thanks to the cleaners) but that is the only positive thing I can say about our stay here. There are many Motel options in Blenheim - we urge you to look at alternatives.

Checked the room beforehand and wasn't boked what was asked for. Then when corrected gave us the room closest to main road, out of spite. Excessive road noise from trucks. Not double glazed. Additional issues: - No tables in living area or bedrooms. - Wifi is poor and a dead spot fir mobile data. - No sky movie channels work. - Shower is weak. - Infested with ants all over kitchen benches. - No cleaning service on our first day here despite being advertised. When cleaner came around just replaced towels and nothing more. - Laundry facility was extremely expensive at $9 for one load washed and dried! Worst thing is the tall older gentleman who owns the place is incredibly rude, un-comunicative and seemed grumpy and put out by any small requests or question. When asked a question he would grumble incoherently and walk away leaving you wondering if he had actually heard you. No doubt they will respond to this review with excuses, but believe me this place needs serious improvement.

I recently stayed and was perturbed to find the office not only closed for checkin, but a list in the window of the names of those staying . So much for privacy. Heater didn't work, took til 3rd day to get another. Cupboard too high for oldies. Staff were fab, but manager needs to be more user friendly.

Good location, good parking, an inviting small pool, plenty of hot running water and a comfortable bed. However, the room (Room 9) was clearly in a very worn state and desperately needed renovating. Cupboards were old, damaged and rather dirty! Lots of hair was found on the well worn carpet and on the bathroom floor and skirting board:( The shower worked OK but the water wouldn't drain away properly. This was rectified when we told the cleaners. The state of the bathroom cabinet was shocking, see images. In addition the bathroom door had squeaky hinges and wouldn't shut!! I could go on as there were quite a number of other negatives like smelly T -towels, little cutlery and stained towels and bath mat.....ugh I will NOT be staying here again:(
