After landing on the south island by boot we sought out our hotel, the Scenic in Blenheim. The check in was quick and we were in the room in no time. However this room had some issues, the linnen were dirty and the fridge didn't seem to work. A quick call and we were moved across the hall to a...

Hello and many thanks for taking the time to post a review. We appreciate your understanding regarding the linen. Yes everyone can have an off day, but we certainly took this situation seriously and followed this up with our Housekeeping Manager the next day. She has discussed this with the room attendants to ensure they will not allow this to...

Relatively close to the airport, wineries and walks along a stream this is a lovely location to explore Marlborough from. It is a 5 minute walk to town and the staff are friendly and helpful. Meals are adequate but pricey.

We are fortunate to be located so centrally within Blenheim, putting you within a "stones throw" of so many great attractions.

Positives: Friendly staff, good location, newly renovated rooms Negatives: No heating in common areas (wearing a jacket at all times), unwelcoming bar and restaurant (feels like a canteen), food is pretty bad, wifi is slow and capped at a very low speed/allowance to entice you pay for a faster option - feels like a hotel that is struggling financially and...

Hello and thank you for taking the time to post a review. Heating of the public areas can be a challenging issue as the seasons change. We experience temperatures ranging from 6 - 24 degrees Celsius at this time of the year and our heating/cooling system in the reception and public areas sometimes can struggle to adjust very quickly to...

This hotel is conveniently located opposite Seymour Park, a short walk to town for restaurants, shops, ATM's etc. The facilities are clean and tidy and there is a lovely bar and largish restaurant. We only had breakfast at the restaurant - which was very nice - but the menu for the other dining options looked lovely. This hotel has great...

Nice room; spacious and comfy bed. The bathroom is well appointed. There is a fridge in the room and laundry facilities available. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I lost an earring at dinner and Ranjith helped me look for it and called the restaurant for me. They found my earring for me. Great place to stay

Stayed 2 nights here. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Good location close to town. Breakfast here was ok, not a great deal to choose from. Bed was a 'king' - 2 singles pushed together so there was a lump in the middle of the bed and it felt like we were sleeping in a divot on each side. Beds however...

Thanks for taking the time to review our hotel. Sorry that you were not totally happy with the bed. The beds are split king beds, which are zipped together and with the addition of the feather mattress topper in theory you should never feel the join. However not the case on this occasion, apologies. Best regards, Carmel Horsley, General Manager.

This is a very welcoming & comfortable Hotel, well located for travellers to the town or passing through. We had a large vehicle which would not have fitted into their hotel parking but they are allowed to use the church park across the road provided you place the hotel card in the window. Restaurant is very calming, looking out onto...

Would happily stay here again. Room was very comfortable, plenty of space. Super clean. The laundry room on our floor was perfect as it meant we didn't have to continue our holiday with a dirty case of clothes. The location of the hotel was ideal for the town and the vineyards Hope I can be back again another day.
