“Blenheim Palms is great all round”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

We stay in Blenheim several times a year for business and after staying in several places over the years, now choose Blenheim Palms. It's a great location, reasonable tarriff, sufficiently appointed for our needs, spotless, and nice furnishings; with very accommodating and welcoming owners. Recommended.

Room Tip: Some of the downstairs rooms can get smoke drift from other guests and can have people walking past...

We stayed one night here while visiting the vineyards. The motel had been upgraded and included fresh ground coffee, extras in the fridge for purchase at a sensible price - chocolate!
The whole experience was very satisfying and friendly - well done to the team here who made some great suggestions on places and estates to visit.

Beautiful decor, immaculately clean and the hosts were very helpful. Every unit has a different theme and is very modern. Beds were comfy and linen nice and soft. The shower was extra large rather than the small poky ones normally in motels. The free wifi is also great and was a selling point for us, plus the value for money. We would definitely stay here again.

We had one night at the Palms Motel in Blenheim. The Motel was very clean and spacious and the hosts very helpful. They recommended a good winery on the way out of town that we stopped off at for tasting.

Reviewed 20 November 2013

Stayed here only for the 1 night, the location was very good, 1 street back from the main street of blenheim. I had the room directly at the top of the stairs across from reception, this room goes out to the street, and the only real noise was people talking coming up the stairs. The room itself was very large, comfortable bed, good choice of coffee, tea, along with a microwave. The toiletries were nice, but the bathroom was a let down. The shower door opened up onto the toilet, so when you sat on the toilet you really had to turn on an angle, and the shower temperature was inconsistent, with not a great flow. Internet was good being free, but it did drop out occasionally. Hosts were good, friendly and efficient. I would stay again for 1 night, but any more I would look for an alternative.

Reviewed 13 October 2013

We found this motel was a very quiet and peaceful place to stay and so close to the town and its amenities. The units are very well presented with everything you need for a pleasant stay. Prices are comparable to other similar motels in the area but free internet puts the Palms ahead. There are 50 TV channels to choose from so plenty of choice if that's your thing. Martin and Heather are extremely good hosts and go out of their way to make your stopover an enjoyable experience. However, the servicing could be of a higher standard. The first thing we noticed was the very aged and marked toilet seat, then we found the bedroom drape hanging off one end of the curtain rail, leaving quite a gap. The next day we found that the bath had not been cleaned and our bed had been made by just pulling the covers up over the wrinkled sheets, leaving it pretty much the way we had got out. The servicing of the unit on the second day could, at best, only be called, very basic. While this aspect was disappointing it should not stop you from staying at the Palms as we would still rate it as a genuine four star motel. Thank you Martin and Heather for a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: A downstairs unit on the north wing would be the quietest.
