“Homely”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

We stayed here with friends and were made welcome as soon as we entered the office. Chris and Ian are very obliging and so friendly. Chris took us to our room and showed us around. The rooms are very homely and modern. Everything you need. Great shower, comfy beds and a good size telly!! Love the green couch. Only a five minute stroll to town. If back in Blenheim we will be back. Thanks so much.

The room was beautifully decorated and I could not fault the cleanliness and amenities. Hosts were very welcoming with a big delightful smile when I arrived. Only stayed one night but I will certainly be recommending this accommodation to any friends, family and colleagues who seeks my advise on where to stay.
Most comfortable bed and really good quality linen made for a good nights sleep. I was towards the main road but was not disturbed by any road noise.
A genuine 4 star, I would suggest exceeds 4 star rating standards.

We stayed four nights and throughly enjoyed our stay. My wife has mobility difficulties and Chris went the extra distance with lots of helpful little things to make her stay more comfortable.
Our room was the closest to the main road but was quiet during our stay.
Overall the amenities were excellent and hosts very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: The mobility room suited our needs perfectly

I'd like to challenge Anthony Melchiori to find anything wrong with this motel. The room was spotless, Large flat panel TV in lounge and small TVs in both bedrooms. Neatness of the utensils bordered on OCD. Ian and Chis were fantastic hosts. If I could give it six stars I would.

We had originally planned on staying two nights, coming over on the ferry from the north island, this was such a great place to stay I'm sorry we couldn't. Our ferry was cancelled due to bad weather and when I called the Motel to explain and cancel our first evening, he was so pleasant and helpful. We were not charged a cancellation fee for less than 24 hours notice, but we were still keeping our one night as we had previously booked.

When we checked in - we were helped to our room and offered milk for the morning. The room was very clean and very comfortable. The kitchenette was perfect and the parking was free. I hope to be able to visit again and discover the area!

Very good service and very friendly host. Thank you for the advise in regards to places for dinner. Definitely I will come again and enjoy the relaxing stay. Even though is not in the heart of the city , it is close enough.

Very helpful and friendly managers and staff. Excellent location with good off street parking. We were in a ground floor apartment which makes it easier if you have heavy suitcases. Daily servicing was very good and information on local activities provided by reception was appreciated. We would stay there again.
