Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very nice hotel. Customer service was excellent. We had to leave earlier than they served breakfast. We asked for some cereal for the room in the morning. They made up a wonderful bowl of yogurt with 4 fresh fruits in addition to the granola cereal and milk. We would definitely stay there again.

Spartan room that was clean but very basic. We wanted to use the swimming pool but it was so filthy it appeared polluted and no one would go for a swim. The front desk reception was efficient and pleasant. The restaurant was basic with a somewhat limited menu. This property was expensive and not worth the price.

Greetings Thank you for your feedback, although my apologies that some aspects were not to your satisfaction. The swimming pool is treated daily and cleaned regularly and being enjoyed by many of our guests, so your comments about the pool are of surprise. We do have the pool booked for a repaint this year, so perhaps that affected your opinion of it. Nonetheless, I am sorry we missed the mark there for you. Kind regards Carmel Horsley, General Manager.

Stayed here on the last 3 days of our South Island holiday. . Given that this is a chain hotel , we found it to be a step above other chain hotels we have stayed in in the past. Scenic hotel is clean, the bed super comfortable and all the staff were very helpful and always had a smile . Having a restaurant on site was a real bonus and it a very short flat walk into town Will stay again

Nice spacious room, bed comfortable as it had a topper otherwise may have been an issue due to springs. Sizable bathroom. Friendly staff. Perfect location for walking to town and driving to the wine region. Free on site parking We were room only so can’t comment on restaurant.

Fantastic hotel. Stayed on the way down South and enjoyed it so much we booked again on the way back. Staff were brilliant - reception and the restaurant. We felt very welcomed and looked after. Food in the restaurant was great. The room had everything we needed. Thanks for a great stay. We will be back!

We stayed at this hotel as part of a package put together for us by a travel company. The hotel was fine in every respect. The room, food, service were all to a good standard, but apart from going on a wine tasting visit, we were at a loss to find something interesting to do in Blenheim. As we were driving, the wine tasting was out and the only other option appeared to be a visit to the aviation museum. Not at the top of our to do list. Good hotel, not a brilliant town for tourists.

Hi Steve Thanks for your feedback on our hotel - we are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Yes - there are plenty of wine tastings to do here as well as some distilleries and breweries and this is a main attraction for many visitors to the region. If that is not to your liking, Blenheim is also a good town to base yourself in for trips through the Marlborough sounds as well as to take advantage of the trail bike riding and walking tracks. Often staying in Blenheim is a natural stopping point before or after a ferry crossing. We hope the rest of your journey goes smoothly and you enjoy your travels. Warm wishes Carmel Horsley, General Manager

I really loved the hotel especially as I wasn't expecting much. The staff were friendly and efficient but not intrusive. The rooms were comfortable and had everything that one might need. They are small though and the room I had was noisy from early morning because of the church bells across the road. Not the hotels fault though. The rooms were very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The hotel in general was spotless. Breakfast was nice and plenty choice. We had dinner in the main restaurant one evening. The staff were efficient and pleasant but the place lacked atmosphere, and people. A shame because it could be so much better. The food was fine but nothing out of the ordinary. There is a lovely little bar you can have drinks at which we used on both evenings and very much enjoyed. Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the hotel
