Spotless, modern and clean with lovely little personal touches that make this motel stand out from others. I would stay there again and certainly recommend it to others visiting Blenheim. Very central location and helpful staff. Thanks, we loved it!

My teenage daughter and I have just spent the last three nights at the Blenheim Palms and would highly recommend it. Very clean and tidy, friendly service and we loved all the little touches that made it feel like home. Heather and Martin were fantastic hosts and happily answered all our questions. Easy walk into town and good parking. One...

This was a spacious and beautifully presented room. In addition to being spotless and modern, there were a great amount of towels, facecloths, tea/coffee sachets. Another nice touch was the decent sized cannister of coffee to use in the plunger. In the main room there was a beautiful bed, TV, decent sized sofa, small table and two chairs, plus a...

This is a great motel to stay in especially for its central location. It is within walking distance of everything, and the owners (Martin & Heather) were so hospitable. We came home one night a bit late, and the Ecoya candle was burning and the room looked so inviting on a cold night. After we checked out, Martin was still...

The motel has a nice location and the rooms are nice. My room had a small kitchen and separate lounge room. The bed was reasonably comfy but sunlight comes through the curtains making sleeping in past sunrise difficult. The bathroom was a bit dated. Also I didn't see any food at the motel so you must bring your own or...

This is my Motel of choice when ever I'm in Marlborough. I stay here regularly every five to six weeks and it is always up to a high standard. Always clean rooms comfy beds and great service. Very handy to restaurants and town centre. Book ahead as it is a very popular place to stay. Highly recommend.
