South Bend, IN
Reviewed 16 February 2016

We have been choosing Montana Lodge for overnights since 1997. The location is near enough to the CBD for a relaxing walk, especially along the river. Some miss this opportunity. Restaurant nearby, also coffee and ice cream, and grocery store within easy walking distance. The rooms are always clean and well equipped for preparing a dinner, breakfast or afternoon wine...

We value our return guests like old friends, and will give our best endeavours to ensure their time with us is treasured as much as the first time. The river walk into town is very picturesque, and leads to great cafes. We love show-casing what we have in Marlborough and sharing it with our guests. Thank you so much for...

Fantastic stay. Management is extremely helpful and friendly. Good price, clean, and fantastic A/C in the room. Room is very large as well. Laundry is available as well. 12 minute walk to the center of town. Across the street from the best restaurant in town.

We have certainly seen the value of air conditioning this summer, and it is great that our guests are availing themselves of it. This review supports our contention that we are not very far from the centre of town, and the walks to get there are relaxing and picturesque. Gramados Restaurant, is proving to be one of the best in...

On our way to Christchurch and this is the perfect place to one or two nights. Although the road is nearby overnight there was virtually no traffic noise so slept soundly. The owners are very welcoming and the room clean and comfortable. We thoroughly recommend this motel and it is good value for what you get.

Montana Lodge motel is a great place to stop off, either going to, or coming off the ferry. Picton is only 20 minutes drive away. Handy to town, and all the visitor attraction, and of course the wineries. Thank you for your comments regarding the cleanliness and comfort of the accommodation. Please do call again.

We stayed here recently to attend a family wedding and booked 2 x 2 bedroom units. Margaret and Peter were most obliging and nothing was a problem to help our two families. Margaret even went beyond the call of duty helping with the laundry and taking the family photos when we were all glamed up!!! The units were very clean...

Montana Lodge Motel is great for family based functions. There is plenty of space for people to chill out in. Very handy to The Old Barn Function Centre. If we can do anything to make our guests stay more enjoyable, then we will do our very best to achieve it. The family photo under the big old lemon tree in...

My wife and I stayed at the Montana Lodge Motel in Blenheim for a couple of days. The town is situated in New Zealand's wine country region - yet another superb area of a country the beauty of which defies description. The motel's rooms, each with a fairly large and easily accessible kitchenette, are exceptionally spacious, immaculately maintained and ideally...

What can we say? It is easy to host guests when you live in one of the best regions in NZ. Michael and his wife asked questions and we were pleased and able to answer them. Interested and actively engaged guests are wonderful people to host, and if our knowledge and facilities enhance their stay, then everyone wins. Travel safe...

Stayed at their studio plus with my husband and my daughter before NYE on the way back to Wellington from Christchurch. Even though it was very busy, the owner Pete was friendly welcoming.

The Kitchen / Bathroom renovations are approximately 1 year old, nice to read that they are perceived in new condition, as that is testament to the cleanliness standards of our staff. Your comments regarding the lighting are taken on board, and we will review that at our next electrical energy efficiency meeting. We are currently running energy efficient lighting, but...

We liked this motel better than newer ones down the road. The owner met us and introduced himself and shook hands on arrival. The units are well set out and have been tastefully decorated in neutral tones. There's a separate bin for recyclables - the first time I've seen that in a motel - and flowing soap/shampoo canisters instead of...

Thank you for the great comments about our motel. It is pleasing to receive feedback about the renovations we have just completed to our kitchens and bathroom. The comments concerning the garden, pool and play area, are indicative of the spaciousness, of our complex, which is a big plus for families. It is great to host appreciative guests.

We stayed here on the way back to Christchurch from Golden Bay on New Years Day. Peter was so welcoming and friendly to us both and made everything super easy. We had a unit for just the one night, but it was very clean and not far from restaurants etc. which Peter kindly recommended to us as well.

A very friendly couple run this motel. It is obviously very well organised and the owners are very professional. Our room was immaculate and facilities excellent.

We never get tired of hearing the good reviews about the cleanliness of our accommodation, thank you very much. It is always easy to host guests who know what they want. It makes it much simpler to cater to their needs. And its always nice to host kiwis coming back from Australia.
