Our family stayed two nights recently in a two bedroom apartment. We chose this motel because it is pet friendly and we were travelling with our dog. Brian and Raewyn honestly couldn't have been more inviting and friendly. They were marvellous. They welcomed our Chihuahua who has 'people issues' with open arms, allowed her to go inside the unit, helped us with directions to places and even loaned us towels for taking away from the motel to use during the day. We were so impressed with their service that we will definitely go back to stay. Thank you!

Reviewed 15 April 2018

We got into town late and were recommended to stay at the Montana as we just needed a studio room for the night. Brian greeted us so warmly upon check in and couldn't do enough to make our stay comfortable. The room was great...Sparkly clean and comfortable bed plus a fully stocked kitchen and heater in the bathroom. We did laundry and they provided soap which was greatly appreciated. We would definitely stay here again and we would recommend this motel to anyone looking for a place to stay in Blenheim.

Just had 2 nights here which were great - free upgrade to 2 bed apartment, extra cookies!, nice swimming pool, lovely garden, and an easy stroll into town. Very clean and tidy, and hosts very friendly and helpful. Would stay again and definitely recommend.

We chose Montana Lodge Motel for the position. We were greeted warmly. Nothing was too much trouble. Brian and Raewyn were able to answer any questions we had and more. They made sure we were comfortable. The unit was exceptionally clean and well equipped. We were treated more like family than guests, We could not speak more highly of the motel or of Brian and Raewyn. We would not hesitate to book there again or recommend them to anyone else.

Room tip: Close to CBD and local shops. rooms near the back are quieter.

This was the first visit to this motel and it was a lovely experience. The manager was extremely friendly and welcoming, and the room warm and comfortable. A close walk into the town centre, I would certainly stay here again.

Reviewed 17 February 2016

We have been choosing Montana Lodge for overnights since 1997. The location is near enough to the CBD for a relaxing walk, especially along the river. Some miss this opportunity. Restaurant nearby, also coffee and ice cream, and grocery store within easy walking distance. The rooms are always clean and well equipped for preparing a dinner, breakfast or afternoon wine and cheese. Each room has a covered parking space to keep your car cool in the heat of the day. We have typically stayed in one of the rooms toward the back, but were upgraded this time to a two bedroom unit as the others were full due to the food & wine festival. Even though it was near the street, road noise was not an issue. Pete & Margaret give great suggestions for wine tours, biking, and other activities, and are an enjoyable couple to have a conversation with.

Room tip: Pick rooms on the south side. A bit quieter. The single BR are a great value.

We value our return guests like old friends, and will give our best endeavours to ensure their time with us is treasured as much as the first time. The river walk into town is very picturesque, and leads to great cafes. We love show-casing what we have in Marlborough and sharing it with our guests. Thank you so much for staying with us again.
