A great stopover hotel. Good desk service (helped with tours), comfortable rooms and nice bar. Did not eat here so will not comment on the restaurant. Client laundry very helpful for those of us on long trips. The one small downside for me was that the small pool did not look

Hello Barry. Thanks for touching base with us, it is great to hear from you. Not happy that the pool was not looking inviting - I am so sorry about this. It is normally always looking great, so I am not sure how this slipped by but nonetheless your feedback is a healthy reminder for our team. We are of course pleased that we otherwise managed to get things right, and help to make your visit an enjoyable one. Warm wishes, Carmel Horsley, General Manager.

stayed here for a couple nights while visiting nearby wineries. Hotel is in town, near a lovely park. Overall decor a bit dated, but room was comfortable and spacious. Breakfast buffet was pricey and a bit on the skimpy side.

The Scenic in Blenheim has lots to recommend it: free parking, a nice outdoor pool, charming staff and lovely rooms. The only downside was the oddly bright thermostat. It was so bright we spent a food 5 minutes engineering a 'cover' for it so we could sleep.

Great to hear from you again Stephanie. As mentioned I am looking into the display brightness on these control pads, as I have never had this issue brought up with me before: suspect it may be a setting we can adjust easily. So pleased you let me know - thanks for that. Glad everything else went smoothly for you. Best wishes, Carmel Horsley, General Manager.

Stayed for one night as part of our South Island tour. The staff were polite and helpful and helped us with planning our stay. The food was excellent.........good wholesome burgers, with a good choice of ales. Rooms were clean, well appointed. All in all a pleasant stay.

Staff are really on to it and without being familiar, the rooms are nicely set up and very comfortable I can see us coming back here again and again. However, one thing they need to look at is the meal size being left wanting more after a big day was not so great it is part of

"The bar serves a 'wine flight' of six different locally produced wines - great value and an excellent way to sample some different bottles!"
"The best rooms are on the top floor with their blackout blinds (V-Lux)"
"Ask for a room in the photo--the blackout shades come down in tracks so they completely black out the room."
"Our room on the 3rd floor was perfect for us as only in the room as a stop over."
"Eat at the restaurant and drink at the bar! You won't be disappointed."
