We spent 2 nights at this hotel during our visit to the Marlborough region in March 2014. The hotel facilities are very nice and of good quality. The staff attention was good. The double room was very comfortable and spacious, with nice view to the swimming pool area but at the same time with privacy. It was cool and partially rainy outside so we didn't use the pool facilities but they looked fine.

Room Tip: Double rooms with pool view are fine.

Thank you for taking the time to review the Chateau Marlborough Hotel. While it was unfortunate that you were unable to enjoy the swimming pool during your stay due to the cooler time of the year. I am pleased that you enjoyed your suite along with the facilities offered at the hotel, and that our staff were able to show you our great "kiwi" hospitality . Lynley McKinnon, General Manager

We arrived late afternoon - an unexpected stay due to checking out of somewhere else (not in Blenheim) where we had been booked for an extra night but couldn't stand the thought! So, we just pitched up here - liked the look of the place and asked if they had a room. Yes, they had and the welcome we received was so warm it made us forget about that other place!

Ate in the restaurant so have no idea what Blenheim itself has to offer, but this hotel was great, the restaurant was likewise, and we'd recommend anyone to stay here.

Our stay in this hotel was very enjoyable. The facilities and rooms were great and very comfortable. The gym in the hotel was also awesome, whilst small, it is very well equipped. The staff at the hotel were so friendly and helpful. The only slight issue pertained to the restaurant. Unfortunately we found our dinner of lamb to be overdone and the accompanying salad all sorts of confused. The breakfasts however were lovely, despite a chai latte coming out as a regular latte, though this was very quickly swapped for the chai ordered.

This gorgeous hotel was situated not too far from the town centre. Arriving a little early, Lindley, the very friendly receptionist said she would phone me when the room was ready, so we wandered into the town. Lindley duly phoned, we returned to the hotel and shown to our room, well actually suite! The view overlooked the pool area and looked lovely, but a later visit to the pool proved a mistake as it was freezing. For a small pool, I'm sure it wouldn't have been too costly to have some form of heating. Needless to say I didn't see anyone else venture into the pool. A full breakfast was included in our room price, but the restaurant staff were confused and it also took a long time to be served. We felt a little awkward having to explain.

What a beautiful hotel to stay in! Comfortable bed, modern rooms and the restaurant was lovely. Had a few issues while we were there that were sorted by great, friendly, helpful staff. Had been told that we would be refunded for some food after an issue but wasn't and asked if they had chai latte and was told yes, only to be given very strong latte! So there was another $9 I paid that I shouldn't have. There is a day spa available on site and made the most of these facilities. Well worth every cent to treat yourself. Free laundry was a plus.

Stayed one night at this hotel and thought it excellent. I got a price off the internet and when I went to the office, I was told that the current rate was $20 dearer but was immediately given the price stated on the internet. Great spacious room, two minutes walk to town, friendly staff and clean.
