I stayed here for 3 nights for work while in Blenheim (having gone up from CHCH). Great customer service. They go out of their way to make sure all is well. I enjoyed coming back to this well priced, clean and tidy, and very spacious motel. Thanks for another great stay.

We got off the ferry and drove down to Blenheim without having booked ahead. We looked at three places to stay and chose the Country Life Motel. It was out of town (maybe half a mile), set back from the road (nice and quiet) and comparatively inexpensive (but with all the bathroom and kitchen facilities we needed). Pleasant lady running...

Very clean, spacious, quiet, and very reasonable prices. As a travelling teacher (on this trip heading back to the N.I), this is always my first choice as a place to stay when in Blenheim. It certainly has everything I need to relax after a days travelling, and Joy goes out of her way to make your stay a worthwhile one....

Great location. Good roomy units and parking . Away from the town and in the country which was nice . Roomy units and friendly lady . Even though on the main road traffic noise was not too bad your well off the road in the units .

Our company booked two staff members in at the Country Life Motel for 4 nights and the state of the rooms were such that one guy slept on top of his bed and the other guy preferred to sleep in his van instead. One guy said that he had never seen such a big selection of bugs in one space....

I love it there, because its out of town. Which is only a 2 minute drive into Blenheim. So you get the nice crisp country air, and the animals. So...
