“cockroches”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

Stayed three days recently and had cockroches in bathroom. Also no extractor fan in bathroom to take steam away which made the tiles very slippery. And hairs on hand basin and old hair shampoo container on wall of bath. Tv reception was terrible. Plus TV in bedroom could only receive 3 stations.

We stayed at Phoenix for one night during our trip. Room was very clean and spacious. Motel has a nice quiet location so there is no traffic noise issues during the night, short walk to a supermarket was a bonus. Bed was a bit wobbly but we are just very picky about the beds.

This was our third stay at the Phoenix. We like to stay where we know we'll get a friendly greeting, a very comfortable accommodation, and be in a good location. The Phoenix provides all of these - AND a nice little wallowing-pool - the owners are extremely friendly and when we found ourselves unexpectedly needing an extra night there, they had no problem at all in accommodating us. Blenheim is a busy little town, in the middle of the Marlborough wine country, with a very pleasant Sunday market at the A&P ground that's really a meeting-point for locals, with about 30 stalls selling local produce. Friendly and informal. There's also an excellent Aviation Museum, with a Classic Car collection beside it - well worth a visit for petrol-heads! It's an easy 20-minute drive from Picton and the Inter-Islander ferry, so a good place to start a South Island tour, or rest overnight before taking the ferry back north the next morning.

Room Tip: They're all good - rooms near the road are single-storey but nearer the main road, rooms at the...

A great value clean and comfortable Motor Inn. The staff were really nice & helpful. There were 4 of us so we stayed in a 2 bedroom unit. Each spacious bedroom has a king bed & a single bed & there was another bed in the lounge, so plenty of beds for everyone! The beds were super comfortable, with nice clean comfortable white linen & plenty of warm blankets. The beds even had electric blankets (I'm not sure if all 7 beds had an electric blanket, but there were at least 2), which made sleeping even more comfortable. The bathroom & en suite both looked very new, modern & extremely clean. The shower was perfect, adjustable water pressure, built in shelves etc. There was even a heater in the en suite, perfect for the cold weather! We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay & would definitely return when we're next in the area. I really did not want to leave this affordable Motor Inn!!

We stayed one night only, in a beautiful unit, quiet, spacious, and really enjoyed the friendly welcome to Blenheim. Definetely the smartest Motel unit we stayed in during our 8 day South Island trip. Highly recommended
