Beautiful room, helpful staff. Delicious dinner in the restaurant. Would definitely recommend this hotel, it was the best we stayed in in New Zealand for that price.
- Free Parking
The room looked beautiful, however there was a persistent smell (management said it was bleech) and water dropped from the ceiling. Both can happen, however management did not really apologize for the inconvenience and still charged full rate.
The restaurnat has great food and is worth spending the money.
We stayed here for 2 nights during a 4 week trip around New Zealand. It was one of the best hotels we stayed in. The rooms were very quirky - ours was done up very tastefully in Indian Raj style. The bathroom was incredible! The hotel itself is very classy yet cosy and welcoming. The restaurant is a focal point, we had nice breakfasts there but the evening meal deserves a special mention. We were lucky they could fit us in for dinner on the night we arrived (I recommend booking!). The meal was divine, and the wine - as expected - was perfect. The town of Blenheim itself is rather dull, but we very much enjoyed the wine tour we went on with Bubbly Grape while we were there.
My brother and I were delighted to find this delightful hotel in the small town of Blenheim, located in the middle of the wine country in the East/Central part of New Zealand's South Island. The hotel has an "old European Charm" about it -- the rooms are unique and immaculate. The linens are 5-Star, the restaurant even better. Amazing chef who knows how to bring the best out of local ingredients. The service is genuine, gracious, helpful and friendly. Five minutes after our arrival, we were sipping a lovely glass of of a local Sauvignon Blanc while our hosts arranged a wonderful wine tour for us the next day. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer.
