Unfortunately we were caught up in the 7.5 magnitude earthquake while in Blenheim and were unable to continue our Coastal Pacific train travel to Christchurch. We phoned Tower Junction Motor Lodge to cancel our booking for 16th Nov 2016 as soon as we were notified that all road & rail access was impassable. The proprietor was unhelpful & argumentative. He...

Very close to the railway station for the TranzAlpine & Coastal Pacific. The owner was delightful and was more than helpful in advising us as to local restaurants, local shops, etc. The room was clean and tidy and had everything you would expect

Spent one night on our way to Blenheim. Rooms are pretty small. It was quiete uncommon as all rooms throughout NZ in Motels are rather big. Chairs were worn and outdated. Locartion is good. 10mins drive to ciTy center. Internet was really fast and they gave us 10GB after request.

The room we stayed in was spacious with a king size bed. Very comfortable. The rooms were clean with a nice choice of tea and coffee. Staff are friendly and happy to help with any inquiries. Lots of TV channels.

Good place to stay. The room was clean and tidy and had everything you would expect. The lady at reception was extremely helpful with advice on the attractions and amenities close by. She also gave me and other guests a lift to the railway station which was very much appreciated.

The apartment has enough space for five of us with complete facilities and clean. Perfect location for those who are taking the TranzAlpine train as the station is just walking distance but we don't need to walk as the owner actually sent by car. The shopping mall and supermarket is within 10-15mins walk and further from the mall is the...

This motel is very clean, modern and well equipped with new furniture and appliances. Our queen bed was comfortable, our room was spacious and the bathroom while not huge had fluffy soft towels and good quality soaps. It has a well equipped kitchenette for making neals if that's what you want to do, and it's only a slow 10 minutes'...
