Blenheim Palms Motel
Ranked #8 of 32 Hotels in Blenheim
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 February 2014

We have travelled to Blenheim several times a year for the last 7 years. On our first trip we stayed at Blenheim Palms Motel. The moment I met Heather and Martin, I just knew I would never stay anywhere else!!! The rooms are modern, nicely furnished and spotlessly clean and they just have that little something extra that makes them feel so homely and comfortable. Every stay has been the same - just lovely - so welcoming and nothing is ever a problem to them. I feel like part of the family - WHY STAY ANYWHERE ELSE, WHEN YOU ARE TREATED LIKE A STAR!!! Thanks for your wonderful service and hospitality, Nicky

Room Tip: If you are having a romantic weekend away, make sure you ask for the spa room!!!

We stayed 5 nights, didn't get to spend as much time relaxing at motel as we wished but whilst there we found Blenheim Palms to be comfortable, clean, good sized wardrobe, king bed was comfortable, nice linen. Loved the free wifi, well stocked snack bar. owners were friendly and helpful. only thing we weren't so happy about was the really small shower head and lack of pressure from it. everything else was pleasant. Also is a great central location. We would recommend it.

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.
