“Best on High”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

Always immaculate and the service is wonderful and accommodating. The location is excellent and close to town. We now stay no where else as this is our home away from home, vacancy allowing. Highly recommend.

I've stayed at this motel three times now and every time I've been very impressed. Ian and Chris are warm and welcoming and they remember and look after their repeat customers. I find it really comforting to arrive after a busy day at work, travelling alone, to be met by a friendly face who instantly remembers me. The rooms - I've stayed in two studios and a one bedroom - are all modern, very smart, spacious and spotless. Ample towels and toiletries, and a free DVD library with DVD players in the rooms (which I appreciate for the evenings when I'm working alone in the room). Excellent location with restaurant and shops just a minute's walk away. My first choice when staying in Blenheim.

We have stayed here 4 times now and it never fails to impress. The hosts are friendly, helpful and professional. Nothing is ever any trouble. The rooms are great with everything you need for your stay. Cannot fault anything. The rooms are always exceptionally clean. We would not bother even looking for anywhere else to stay in Blenheim. First class.

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.
