This place is a little gem - great linen on the beds, clean, and modern. The owner is really helpful and friendly. Great value for money. We will definitely stay here again next time we're in Blenheim.

Very clean and spacious. Wee note to other solo travellers , wanting a meal at home after long day travel, given good recommendations for local food however delivery of food to local restaurants however need to spend 35 and then $9 delivery. Local Speights did a takeaway for me and Countdown 5 mins car away. Would Recommend to other solo travellers

Stayed in probably nearly 100 motels in NZ over the past 40 years. The Phoenix is the best. Wife is fastidious about cleanliness and she couldn't find anything in our unit that wasn't up to her high standards. Clean and decent facilities, reasonably spacious room and competitively priced after a manager's discount on tariff listed on booking sites. Pleasant, helpful owners and cleaning staff. Good location. Now living in Blenheim and for any guests we can't accommodate at home we will be booking them into the Phoenix, even though it is over the other side of town. Distance a disadvantage, but we know they will have no complaint about the accommodation ! No comparison to another motel we stayed at iin an earlier visit to Blenheim. Can't rate this place highly enough.

Comfortable warm well appointed rooms and bathrooms. Excellent selection of hot refreshments. Comfortable beds. Cleaning smell was overwhelming in the main kitchen area. Heat pump old and noisy. Fantastic to have Sky movies which is so nice in the evenings and a bonus compared to other places we stayed. Good parking. Good info on local places to eat. Very reluctantly agreed to a 10.30 checkout with three young children to organise by myself.

The rooms are nice, comfortable, spacious, well equipt, comfortable and have everything you need to cook, keep warm or cool with the Aircon and relax. Has excellent wifi, modern set ups including sky and Netflix, is close to supermarkets, big box retail, and eateries. Good service, and easy adequate parking. Rooms are excellent value, no road noise or next room disturbances and the complex was full so this was good. Only thing we didn't like was the over bearing plug in air fresheners. Not good for perfume allergies sufferers and was a miagraine headache trigger for me otherwise highly recommend.

What a wonderful motel, have just stayed there for 5 nights with a group of others. We had 2 of their 2 bed room units, very very tidy, clean and comfortable. We had 6 individuals so we’re able to have room each for 4 people and the others slept in bed in lounge. Bonus with one of the rooms in each unit having an ensuite so bathroom time wasn’t a fight Quick and reliable internet and wifi 5 minute walk to pak’n’save and Kmart in 1 direction and about the same to countdown/sleights ale house in other direction You won’t be disappointed, well worth it and very reasonably priced

A friend and I stayed here on route to Richmond. It was immaculately clean and spacious. The proprietor was friendly and helpful. Despite being based on a main road the unit was very quiet. A short walk to the restaurant provided an evening mea; I would stay here again.

We only stayed one night enroute to Nelson but it suited our needs perfectly. The owners were both very friendly and our two-bed two-bath apartment perfect. We even had a lovely little sunny spot to sit outside. Good selection of teas/coffees provided. Beds were very comfortable and parking for this one-level apartment was directly outside. We ate at Speights Alehouse which was close by.
