Fantastic hotel. Stayed on the way down South and enjoyed it so much we booked again on the way back. Staff were brilliant - reception and the restaurant. We felt very welcomed and looked after. Food in the restaurant was great. The room had everything we needed. Thanks for a great stay.
We will be back!

We stayed at this hotel as part of a package put together for us by a travel company. The hotel was fine in every respect. The room, food, service were all to a good standard, but apart from going on a wine tasting visit, we were at a loss to find something interesting to do in Blenheim. As we were driving, the wine tasting was out and the only other option appeared to be a visit to the aviation museum. Not at the top of our to do list.
Good hotel, not a brilliant town for tourists.

Hi Steve
Thanks for your feedback on our hotel - we are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us.
Yes - there are plenty of wine tastings to do here as well as some distilleries and breweries and this is a main attraction for many visitors to the region. If that is not to your liking, Blenheim is also a good town to base yourself in for trips through the Marlborough sounds as well as to take advantage of the trail bike riding and walking tracks. Often staying in Blenheim is a natural stopping point before or after a ferry crossing.
We hope the rest of your journey goes smoothly and you enjoy your travels.
Warm wishes
Carmel Horsley, General Manager

I really loved the hotel especially as I wasn't expecting much. The staff were friendly and efficient but not intrusive. The rooms were comfortable and had everything that one might need. They are small though and the room I had was noisy from early morning because of the church bells across the road. Not the hotels fault though.
The rooms were very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The hotel in general was spotless.
Breakfast was nice and plenty choice.
We had dinner in the main restaurant one evening. The staff were efficient and pleasant but the place lacked atmosphere, and people. A shame because it could be so much better. The food was fine but nothing out of the ordinary.
There is a lovely little bar you can have drinks at which we used on both evenings and very much enjoyed.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the hotel

Room tip: The pool is small but not crowded at any stage when we were there.

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
