This is one of the better hotels in Blenheim. I stayed here last year and looked forward to staying here again on my current trip to New Zealand. I stayed in a studio with kitchenette in the older wing. Hotel is professionally run by a professional staff. Hotel is also within a short walking distance of downtown Blenheim, which is... More

Everything in our room was brand new. The wifi was fast, the room was comfortable and the staff was helpful and accommodating. The breakfast in the morning was not complimentary, but was satisfactory and the hotel bar was quite nice.

Newly renovated rooms, good set up, comfortable beds and central Blenheim location! If you're looking for a hotel in this area, I'd highly recommend this one. Enjoyed our brief stay. They have two areas of the hotel, one was just recently added on and the rooms are brand new, which is where our room was.

Stayed here a few times when visiting from the UK. Always been very good. Friendly staff, very clean and modern rooms. Comfy beds, Quiet.

Stayed 2 nights. Rooms are a bit above average size. Bed is just so comfortable. You can order pillows to suit needs including lavender ones. Only a jug for coffee and small fridge. Very close to centre of Blenheim. Stayed in the just recently opened new wing, very nice. Decor is modern and practical.

After a long, wearying day, we arrived to very friendly, informative, helpful service. We needed supplies and were directed to a large helpful grocery store nearby. We thought we'd try Quench, the in house restaurant. What a lovely surprise! The waiter was a little scrambled as he was expecting a new baby to arrive momentarily. The restaurant manager was most...

This hotel is in the process of extending so it will be much bigger. Unfortunately it means that if you are staying in a ground floor studio you are likely to be overlooked by workmen and have no privacy at the present time.
