We stayed one night only, in a beautiful unit, quiet, spacious, and really enjoyed the friendly welcome to Blenheim. Definetely the smartest Motel unit we stayed in during our 8 day South Island trip. Highly recommended

This motel exceeded all expectations for our family holiday. The rooms were comfortable, clean and very comfortable. The fact that they have a family unit able to sleep a good amount of children makes it an ideal place to stay. Close to Picton and the sounds an ideal base. Highly recommend this especially if you have a young family.

Had a lovely 1 bedroom suite which was a nice change from the usual single studio rooms we have been staying in during our holiday. The host was very friendly and helpful and everything we needed was there. The room was next to the pool and might have been an issue if it had been warm enough for other guests...

Friendly people but when it came to the water pressure, it was very poor. Took half an hour to run a bath. The shower had little pressure. Disappointed to see a crushed venetian blind at the window. 4 plus star. I don't think so!

The Phoenix Motor Inn On November I was on holiday in New Zealand and was traveling the south island with a dear old friend. We had winged most of the trip, and hadn't made any reservations. As luck would have it most of the hotels, motels & inn's were full. We lucked out and came upon The Phoeni Motor Inn....

The location was just great for visiting all the wineries, which was our big reason for being in Blenheim. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, especially our hosts. They were so great with giving us directions and general information (especially when we, being from Texas, desperately needed a good steak). The motel was extremely clean (as was all of New...
