“Close to town.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

Hotel was close to everything. Ample off street parking. There was a lift up to our floor with plenty of room for luggage etc. The hotel looked as though it had been recently refurbished. Our room was spacious with a well stocked mini bar. Bed was great to sleep in. Huge shower area.one hour free Wifi The restaurant was spacious with a good variety of food on offer. Staff were very helpful. There is a spa, sauna and swimming pool on site . One small thing i liked was the small bag provided for guests to take home toiletries that had only been used once or twice.

Dear Guest

Thank you for staying with us and it is good to hear how much you enjoyed your stay. You are correct in assuming that the hotel has been recently refurbished. All areas of the hotel have been done and we feel it is looking great.

Many thanks once again and I hope to see you again.

With kind regards

I stayed here for 2 nights on a business trip. The rooms are modern, comfortable and well appointed with a no-fuss style. There is a good working station for laptops. As will all Scenic Suites chains, the beds are comfortable and there are wonderful toiletries provided. I was on the top floor and had attic style windows that opened to allow fresh air in that are nice. The restaurant menu for both dinner and breakfast had good ranges of options, including room service.

After travelling for over 39 hours from the middle east to NZ we were looking forward to a long sleep. Check-in was pleasant and straightforward. Recently renovated, the hotel is modern and clean. Free wifi allowed catching up with family and friends after travelling. The room was spotless and the bathroom well laid out with a great shower. The hotel was quiet overnight. The bed was the most comfortable hotel bed we have had in many years. So after just one night, the jet lag was almost gone. We have stayed at other hotels on arriving in NZ, but none have been as comfortable.

Quiet location near a church and park area. Comfortable and clean room, and good place to stay after getting off the ferry from Wellington, before our drive to Kaikoura. It was really hot when we arrived and the outdoor pool was very refreshing and much needed. Nice quiet bar area to have a drink before going out to dinner.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for writing your review and for staying with us earlier in the year.
The outside pool is a wonderful asset for those hot Blenheim days and we also have air conditioning throughout the hotel ensuring a comfortable stay no matter what the weather.
Mondrians Restaurant, within the Hotel, provides great food at reasonable prices for those that would not rather venture out but the centre of town is only a short walk away for those who would prefer to explore.
I hope you had an enjoyable trip to New Zealand and hope to be able to welcome you back to Blenheim one day.

With kind regards

Adrian

The refurbishment of the hotel is great. Thebed rooms are first class. Very big, well designed, great bathroom and fabulous bed. Seemed soft but it was just the mattress topper. Only downer was the resturant. The meal we had was superb but the decor is non existent. Just a big room with too many tables and mismatched chairs. Staff were very nice and effecient. Would recommend and would stay again

Room Tip: Our room was on 1st floor. - all windows are double glazed so couldn't hear the clock in the nea...

My girlfriend and I spent two nights in Blenheim at the Scenic Hotel Marlborough, and we have nothing but good things to say about our stay. The staff were very helpful and friendly and we were pleased to see they were all locals.

Our room, which was located on the top floor, was very impressive. We were constantly impressed by small things in our room...Real coffee and a plunger, A dock on the desk for USB/HDMI connectivity to the TV, Electric blinds on the windows and plethora of extra little touches in the bathroom.

When we return to see Marlborough again one day, we won't be risking a stay somewhere else now we know how wonderful Scenic is, and we will be advising our friends who visit the region to do the same...

Dear Guest

Thank you for your lovely review. Our recent multi million dollar refurbishment has certainly given us a wonderful hotel but it is especially pleasing to hear how great our staff were in making your stay an excellent and enjoyable one.
Thank you for staying with us and thank you for spreading the news! Don't forget that there are Scenic and Heartland Hotels throughout New Zealand and they all offer the same fantastic service and wonderfully comfortable beds.
We look forward to being able to welcome you back to the Scenic Hotel Marlborough in the future.

Used to stay here a while back and first time back since refurb.
They've done a great job and the rooms were top notch. Beds extremely comfortable, room was super clean and water pressure great.
Bit disappointed they didn't have a TV in the bar area as a number of people were keen to watch the rugby but had to head offsite so opportunity for some good F&B spend was lost.
Staff were great right down to getting my shirt ironed for me as my room wasn't ready (arrived late morning)
With its handy location to the centre of town I highly recommend this place

Dear Guest,

Thank you for staying with us recently and thank you for writing your review. It is wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your stay so much and it is always very enjoyable to hear how our team has gone that extra mile in delivering great service. I will ensure whoever ironed your shirt gets a special thank you.
The hotel is certainly looking fantastic after our refurbishment - your point about a television in the bar though is a valid one and I will see what I can do to rectify this.
Thank you once again and I look forward to welcoming you back soon.

With kind regards

Adrian
