The motel was booked through tripmasters. It was clean and within walking distance of restaurants. The person at the front desk was very helpful with ideas of where to eat. We only stayed two nights. The only drawback was, the check out time. We are used to check out at 1100 or 1200. Check out here is 1000! Rather inconvenient...

Thank you for your review, you must have been in one of our compact units, which are small. Our checkout is normally 10 but we are happy to make it later, especially there are others checking out on the same day, we also often hold peoples bags for them so they can visit a winery or town restaurant for lunch...

This motel is one of many pre-booked for us as part of a self drive tour planned via New Zealand Self Drive Tours. Julie, the owner/manager, is very welcoming and can suggest lots of places to eat out. Location wise, it is very close to the town centre with supermarkets, cafes and restaurants to meet all budgets plus all other...

Three of us were arriving for the Sew Marlborough mini symposium. Communication with the motel proprietors since booking was excellent. Julie was able to cope with our changing numbers and on our arrival managed to secure us a unit that would accommodate 3 of us. The unit was a good size allowing us to eat, sleep and socialise in comfort....

This motel is getting a bit dated. My studio room was small and dark. Only cooking facility was a microwave. 5 min walk to main shops including supermarkets and good cafes. You need your own transport to get to other attractions such as vineyards - several great vineyard restaurants in the region.....or there are cycle trails and bike hire in...

Thank you for your review, our compact studios are compact and do have a microwave, a toaster and a jug and coffee plunger. They also have free unlimited wifi and all sky channels with your own decoder. Our business customers love them for their comfy beds and good hot showers, For guests staying longer than overnight I recommend our studio...

Reviewed 24 June 2016

We are regular Bella Vista customers around New Zealand, and the Bella Vista Blenheim measures up to others we’ve stayed in. Comfortable, not badly priced if you choose a compact or at least a not-too-large unit, and less than 10 minutes walk to the shopping centre where there’s a good choice of restaurants. Reception services were very good, and offered...

RELIABLE. *Please note....I don't normally rate accommodation 'excellent', but this is based on our overall experience as well as the facilities. We had car troubles, and for a number of reasons the hosts at Bella Vista were very accommodating. The chain of Bella Vista hotels have devised an 'expected' format for the delivery of standardised accommodation for its clients. We...

Thank you thats lovely!, We have the bathrooms on our painting list, just waiting for a lull to get the painter in there. I am going to add a showerdome to try and keep the paint work from needing to be done every year! So glad you enjoyed your stay.

Stayed in Blenheim overnight at the Bella Vista - friendly service, clean and tidy room, and a quiet night's sleep. I particularly appreciated the complementary milk served in a proper glass bottle with a resealable top - what a great idea to minimise packaging.

I am sorry you were not happy with your room, Most of our reviews rave about our cleanliness and it is something we pride ourselves on, we are undertaking a review of the cups in the room and find a few with tea stains after the guests have washed the cups themselves. There is no excuse for a lipstick mark...

I did not book this myself and it was booked quite late so we probably did not get the pick of the rooms. What we did get was small but clean and with all that was needed for one night. The central location meant that eating out was easy. Fine for one night, but if staying longer go for a...
