“Perfect Reward Weekend Setting”
Reviewed 17 March 2013

The Combined Insurance delegates flew into the Marlborough Sounds on the Friday afternoon; home to sublime wine, delectable food and stunning scenery. With a full itinerary ahead of them, accommodation was important and the Chateau Marlborough delivered past expectations. The rooms were roomy, clean and comfortable also providing free port to end an eventful evening. The service is fantastic! As a nice touch a little Chateau Marlborough Kiwi Birds is placed in every room as a gift to the guests.

Spent two nights at Chateau Marlborough in the Penthouse - great location and lift takes you directly to the apartment.

Bedrooms lack air conditioning but windows open to allow cool air in. Th bedrooms do get very very warm. Great outdoor area to enjoy your wine purchases on

Restaurant was quite good on the premises and the pool area was good.

Would return back

We stayed for one night in the Deluxe Suite. It was discounted due to the bathrooms needing renovations. It was quite old and dated but did not even seem to be of great quality even for the times it would have been built in. We feel we would not have wanted to pay anymore for the suite than we did $165NZ. There was a large 42" screen and free wi-fi, however it was quite cold and no extra blankets were provided. The stiff bedspread on top was hardly suitable, a quilt would have been much more preferred. The king bed was rather hard to sleep on and light did filter through the top of the curtains, however the blockout curtaining was quite good. No problems with road noise, good service etc. but we did shift over to Bella Vista Motel across the road the following day and it suited us much better as there was a separate bedroom for the same price, more television channels, more spacious with a kitchenette etc.
If we were to return to Blenheim we would choose Bella Vista over Chateau Marlborough, which is probably more suited to business clientele.

Chateau Marlborough impresses from Start to finish. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite for 2 nights. Suite had to very large bedrooms with private ensuites and extra large wardrobes. Clever windows allowed a fresh breeze into the rooms eliminating the need for air con. Our room had its own balcony with chairs and table over looking the mountains and had a decent sized kitchen with plenty of cupboard space and good quality crockery and cutlery.
We are in the restaurant on the last night and were well looked after by Brayden and the team. The food was excellent and the service was very friendly and accommodating. I would eat there if you get the chance.
I travel 20 times a year and this hotel is by far one of the best. Do yourself a favour and stay here!!

A very comfortable bed, plenty of room and we liked the kitchen which was well equipped. Very quiet, even though we had road frontage. Close to centre of the town; easy walk for shopping and good coffee- (Raupo). Will definitely stay there again.

The rooms were very modern, nicely furnished and well equipped. The pool was nice and we were able to take full advantage of it in the lovely sunny weather during our stay, although it could do with a few more loungers. Staff were friendly and helpful.

There was an earthquake on our second night there, which thanks to the comfy bed and quiet surroundings, we managed to sleep through!
