“Perfect for our needs, Super Staff, Great Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2012

Peaceful location, the host was warmth personified and had several helpful suggestions about local activities (despite, as we later learnt from staff, his wife being in hospital). Comfortably appointed rooms with all the amenities we needed. After a long drive from Franz Josef Glacier in persistent rain, we did not have the energy to explore town.
However we had a very comfortable night's rest, did our laundry (coin operated washer / dryer on site), and left in time to catch the Inter-Islander ferry to Wellington.

Staff was very helpful and let us print the Ferry Tickets in their office.

Would recommend this hotel to anybody seeking a comfortable stay at a good price.

Room Tip: Rooms on the Ground Floor are better if you have much luggage

Very welcoming and professional hosts and a well-appointed motel. Modern, clean and everything you need was there. We left some items behind and the owners could not have been more helpful. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ground floor room with a walk in shower is handy.

Very basic room. Small. Cramped. Had all the essentials, but just tiny.

This lovely motel is situated on the outskirts of Blenheim on State Highway 1 near a couple of other motels and a large supermarket. It is about a 15 minute walk to the centre of town along the busy main road. We were warmly greeted by the owner who was very helpful and recommended some restaurants and things to do during our two night stay. The ground floor room was compact but had everything we had come to expect from a good NZ motel. It was modern and very clean and the shower room was spacious and well fitted out. The double doors at the rear of the unit opened out onto a nice little garden area. The bed was comfortable, but some people may find the road noise a bit loud.

Blenheim is a great place to explore, We can recommend the River Queen steamboat, the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre and Brayside Park Museum.

Really impressed, I travel to blenheim regularly and have sampled a lot of the local motels. i can honestly say the blenheim spa hotel was the nicest I've stayed in so far. The rooms were modern and spotless. The bed comfy and the hosts friendly and very welcoming.

Nice central location to boot. Very impressed.

At the last leg of our week-long honeymoon, we'd decided to stop by Blenheim for the night, after a long drive from Kaikoura, before heading off to Picton the next day. Having not pre-booked any accommodation in Blenheim, we drove around the little township looking for one. This motel stood out amongst the rest we'd seen. It is easily the newest & after inspecting the grounds and our room, the neatest & cleanest of all places we'd seen & stayed in. The rooms are adequately spacey & modern in its furnishings. The kitchenette is squeaky clean, tidy & well equipped. Love the spa bath!
The area is quiet & handy to the town centre and nearby vineyards. The hosts were very helpful in recommending to us places to wine & dine & have kindly supplied us with maps of vineyards that we could visit, including the hours of operation of each vineyard, which is extremely handy as our time was limited (oh, if you are a chocolate & confection lover, don't miss out on the Makana chocolate factory & its divine "Very Berry Toffee Crunch" ~ corner of Rapaua & O'Dwyer's Roads!!!).
For what we're getting & having taken into account the facilities, hygiene & cleanliness of this motel, it's really good value for money! For those of you who value cleanliness, rest assured that the hosts put extra effort in keeping the place tidy & hygienic. Your sheets are always freshly laundered & all washed dishes, cutlery etc in the kitchenette are re-cleaned by your hosts after the guests have left. Having spoken to them & if my memory serves me correctly, they apparently invest 15% of their revenue in cleaning, where such businesses usually invest a prescribed standard 8% in cleaning.
