Spacious comfortable rooms. Comfortable bed. Daily house keeping was amazing! Was nice to come back to a nice clean room at the end of a busy day sight seeing. Nice pool. Nice big TV with Sky TV. Very good value for money. Highly recommend. We will be back again!!

Room Tip: Hotel overlooks the beautiful park. Very central.

Great hotel for the price. Clean, nice rooms and nice restaurant in hotel. It even has a spa, which includes hot tub, steam rooms, and outdoor pool. I gladly took advantage of the hot tub! Recommend for anyone visiting the wine country.

I would call this place a 5 star motel haha
It’s very comfortable, the room is quite large, walking distance to the main area in the city. We haven’t tried the restaurant but the menu seems to be quite nice.
The high light is definitely the staff! The reception lady (I am so sorry I forgot her name) is a gem! She’s friendly, helpful and even offered us a complimentary early check in!
It was a bit pricy but I understand that summer time prices tends to be higher on small towns.
I would definitely recommend

The hotel rooms were large clean and comfortable. Location was ok , within walking distance of some restaurants and. Staff were helpful and friendly . The pool filter was broken , so we couldn’t use it, but overall a comfortable place to stay in Blenheim.

The rooms and bed were very relaxing and quiet. Had everything you needed and laundry on site. WiFi was great and air con worked well. Ideal location for town and walking around or restaurants or bars. We hired bikes from Bikefit which worked out well for the wine tour. Swimming pool was very good and spa was ideal even though you had to reserve an hour slot but no problem with that as it was very private in the jacuzzi and sauna. Staff are very helpful and friendly. Only reason for good is the Restaurant menu sounded good but failed to deliver as the food was average. The service was good but that was our only disappointment ref the food at this hotel.

This place looks a lot worse than the photos. It’s a true motel in every sense of the word. I think their photos were taken when the place first debuted. I unfortunately struggled to find nicer places to stay. The self-serve laundry facilities (2 washers and 2 dryers) weren’t enough since there was a queue after us. The dryer didn’t dry and would require at least 3+ cycles for one load of clothes to properly dry. Keep in mind each load is $4. So laundry is quite expensive if you factor in the multiple drying cycles….

Parking is tight and if you’re the last in at night you will need to park across the street at the church or street parking.

The front desk staff was great and had a positive attitude, I really liked them, and they were the best part of the stay.

The place was cheap so I suppose for less than $100 USD a night I can’t complain too much for a quick stopover on a road trip.

Thank you for your feedback. My apologies that there seems to be something wrong with one of the clothes dryers: not sure if you alerted our team, either way we will have maintenance look at this. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. While you only rated your stay as 2 out of 5, it is pleasing that our team helped to make your visit enjoyable.
Kind regards
