We stayed at this motel only for one night arriving late and leaving early! We called the manager the day before to say we'd be arriving late as we had an evening ferry crossing. She thanked us for letting her know of our late arrival and told us which room we'd be in, telling us the room would be unlocked but she'd turn the heater on for us. Everything was perfect for our arrival.
The room has everything you require - modern with plenty of space and spotlessly clean, a lovely bed, a small table & chairs, large wardrobe with plenty of space to put suitcases etc. It also had a nice large bathroom that was well set-up. We've stayed in plenty of motels in Blenheim and this was definitely one of the best. The location is very convenient and it's quiet - well it was in Room No. 4 which is where we stayed.
I wasn't there for long enough to try the internet service so can't comment on that but I hope they have a good system as that's something that's important for most people these days!
In our rush of checking out in the morning, I inadvertently left a pair of earrings on the bedside table. The next day we received a call from the motel telling us we'd left earrings. They kindly put them in a post bag and they have just arrived at my home. I would have been devastated to lose these earrings so I really appreciate the motel contacting us and posting the earrings back. They've definitely earned our loyalty now! Give Lugano a try next time you're looking for a Blenheim motel.
