We often dine here when we have family visiting or just as a couple. We have never been disappointed. We highly recommend the seared scallops with black pudding and the roast lamb rump. To finish of your evening the "everything chocolate" dessert is sure to satisfy!

We stayed at the Hotel d'Urville the first two night of our honeymoon while we toured the Marlborough wine country. The service we received in the restaurant was incredible as was the food. Our expectations were low as we had just got off a flight for 19 hours from the US and wanted to just get something to eat close....

Thanks a lot for your great review! We are pleased you thoroughly enjoyed your dinner as well as the service that was offered to you. We are lucky to have such a good bartender that makes great cocktails for our guests. Now... in regards to the blue mats in the bathroom, we totally understand... They are only provisional.

We dined in the restaurant (though we weren't guests of the hotel) and loved it. The service was exceptional from Michael and another young girl whose name I didn't catch, and the food was delicious. We had the venison, salmon and bread. Their wine selection is great and we were offered a non alcoholic creation especially for the person at...

Nice boutique hotel, centrally located in the city, very friendly staff. Restaurant is outstanding. The rooms are themed and nicely maintained. The restaurant is probably the nicest place to eat in town, some might consider it pricey, but you get what you pay for here.

First impression not helpful, they said there was on site parking but the car park was tiny and unless you have a tiny bubble car, forget it. Parking in the street is metered although God knows why Blenheim is one of the most boring and ugly towns I have ever seen. The room has seen better days, flaking paint, plumbing...

We are sorry to read you were disappointed by what Blenheim has to offer; it certainly is not a vibrant big city. During the November earthquake we got some damage in the plaster work and therefore some walls still look untidy, but this is dealt with soonest - all tradesmen were very busy and then on holidays. With regards to...

I stayed at d'Urville for two nights on a trip to the Marlborough Region with my family and had a wonderful time. The hotel is clean and the staff was very inviting and helpful. Each room has its own "theme", I stayed in the Venus Room which was vibrantly decorated and had large windows to let the day light in....

We were very disappointed as the suite was not well planned, no comfortable lounge type chairs, with low ceiling in bedroom - that you got to by negotiating up steep stairs - hubby banged his head a number of times.
