Great all round. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable and it felt very relaxed. Bed was perfect. Donna was super helpful at reception. The accomodation was a short, straight walk from the town centre.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Room very clean and tidy with decent space and facilities. Good location for walking in and out of Blenheim. Owner/staff very friendly and helpful, excellent information available. Also a nice little dvd library for those nights when you aren't too fussed about heading out. Definitely would recommend.

Typical motel and nice hosts. We had a 2 bed just for 2 of us and it was spacious and clean. Word of warning visiting on a national holiday, there isn't much open and what is, you really need to book.

We enjoyed a 2 night stay at this moderately priced, spotlessly clean motel. We got friendly, helpful advice from the owner. Blenheim has a great aviation museum and oodles of wineries to visit. Lovely little town!

We only stayed here one night. Really convenient location in the heart of the Marlborough wine region and an easy walk into town for groceries, dinner or souvenirs. Great room with everything you need to make a simple meal. Comfortable bed. Staff was very friendly and helpful with local information.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The room was comfortable and had a separate sitting room that made it seem roomy. The bathroom was great, with a nice spa tub. It was very clean and the kitchenette was nice. The hostess was lovely and provided us with a lot of information and tips on what to do in the area....

We stayed here for 2 nights while touring New Zealand. The studio was very good with plenty of good facilities, including a guest laundry with a facility to " peg out" the washing instead of using a dryer. The studio was well equipped with lots of useful things, handy while travelling. The owners were both very pleasant & Donna helpful...
