We stayed 6 nights in a two bedroomed unit which I could not fault. It was beautifully clean, great beds, warm, spa bath and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you Donna we will be back again next time in your town.

We stayed for one night at this great motel. It was immaculate, the beds were comfy and Donna was amazing. I remembered that I had left my blouse in the wardrobe and Donna happily couriered it to me. Great Service. Would recommend this motel to anyone looking for accommodation in Blenheim.

We stayed two nights at this excellent motel and couldn't have been more pleased. Donna provided all the information we needed and helped us book an all day wine tour. Her advice was spot on. Our room had everything we needed and was spotlessly clean. Would definitely return.

Donna helped us so much with booking an encounter with EKO. She helped us to sort out small issue we had with the car, gave us some cakes and bread and was so helpful. Paul also stayed till we arrived late at night. The place is clean, spacious and nice shower with nice gel shower and shampoo.

We found our room spacious and spotlessly clean. Everything is newly refurbished and the beds are super comfy. Loved the shower-- we were in the handicapped suite-- and the water gets nice and hot. Donna set us up with fun things to do and eat and transportation; above and beyond the call of simple hospitality. We will definitely recommend this...

We stayed as here as part of a South Island tour and in particular to visit the Marlborough vineyards. The location was very handy for the town centre and for easy access to the 'wine'. Donna on the front desk was particularly helpful and friendly. If I had to pick a slight fault, we were in room 5 on the...
