Felt really good staying at the Scenic Hotel. Carpark is off street and free, access to room without walking through reception all the time is a nice change too. We really found the location great and quiet too.

Stayed for three nights on business and found the hotel to be well located for me. Just over 5 minute drive to/from Blenheim Airport and a two minute walk into the city centre, where there's a good choice of bars, cafes and restaurants. I stayed in a Superior double. It was clean, reasonably spacious, quiet and everything worked, including the...

This is a wonderful little hotel with a great homely feel. The staff make you feel part of the family and nothing is too much trouble. We had a lovely sit down set menu for dinner all accompanied with a selection of wines. The room was very comfortable. I'd definitely come back again.

Very impressed with the modern room décor, comfortable huge bed and immaculate bedding. Loved the fact the windows opened, there was a swimming pool, a seating area outside as weather was warm and the reception staff service was top class. Stayed while on a work trip and the central location and great facilities will definitely make me come back.

Reception was efficient and friendly. We arrived in torrential rain, so not the best. We walked through the town but apart from a lovely park and river walk it is just the usual selection of shops. We had a session in the hot tub which was pleasant. We decided to eat in the hotel restaurant, he food was lovely and...
