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 place to stay for 3 nights . It felt like home from home . We had a lovely room 9, a one bed apartment upstairs . Shower wasn’t modern but it was effective . It was all very clean and well equipped . Toiletries were supplied in the bathroom. A small milk was also supplied in the fridge on arrival. There are laundry facilities available with charges dependent on length of stay I think. There is also free parking. Wayne on reception was very friendly and helpful . You can easily walk into town to the restaurants and a supermarket is a 5 min walk from the motel. Overall a super stay and we would recommend this place if staying in Blenheim.

We only stayed here for a night, but we would have happily stayed for longer. This is a modern and comfortable hotel. The rooms are spacious, with very nice decor, a large kitchenette, seats and a dining table. The location is a short walk to the CBD and many of the bars and restaurants. We found it to be quiet and comfortable.

This is a very good motel . It is very modern, the rooms are well appointed and it is immaculately clean . It was quiet, yet well situated near the town centre . The owners are very helpful and friendly. We had an excellent stay here for two nights on holiday and would stay again if we returned to Blenheim.

We stayed at this motel for 2 nights and it was perfectly adequate- had everything we needed in the kitchenette- the shower was powerful - it was all spotlessly clean & the bed very comfy …. We had an upstairs room with a little balcony - we could see the mountains in the distance - shame we didn’t spot the laundry till we were just leaving & no one pointed this out to us - but all good.

Great motel with all the amenities you need for a stay. Very clean and tidy. Very short walk to town for bars and restaurants. Staff in the office were very friendly and gave great recommendations for vinyards to visit. About a 8-10 min drive to the vineyard area

Great location. Very clean and tidy. Wayne who checked us in recommended a winery for lunch. Fabulous experience! Thanks, Wayne! We were on the second floor and there was a sweet balcony with a bistro table and chairs. Good visit!

Really central location just to the south of the main hub of Blenheim. Spacious rooms and easy access (if on ground floor). Parking too, if needed. Staff super helpful. Decent kitchen facilities and a Countdown supermarket about 200m away to pick up breakfast essentials. Highly recommended.

We just love this place. So helpful and friendly. Great units, comfortable beds, clean, and all the facilities we needed. Situated in the central area - walkable to supermarket and restaurants. Quiet location, plenty of parking. Will always be our go-to accommodation in Blenheim.

The motel is in a great location and is a short walk from a lot of restaurants, shops and the Countdown (supermarket) is only a few minutes walk from the motel. The room was very spacious, comfortable and quiet. I would definitely stay here again

This is another NZ motel and like before in Te Pune is really clean and full of all you need for a couple of days’ stay to explore the wine region of Marlborough. Our room was big with a spacious bathroom (no1) and a bath as well as a shower… microwave and electric cooking pan provided alongside the usual sink and pint of milk. Free Wi-Fi worked well. Friendly host and good laundry facilities- what’s not to like?
