Typical motel and nice hosts. We had a 2 bed just for 2 of us and it was spacious and clean. Word of warning visiting on a national holiday, there isn't much open and what is, you really need to book.

We enjoyed a 2 night stay at this moderately priced, spotlessly clean motel. We got friendly, helpful advice from the owner. Blenheim has a great aviation museum and oodles of wineries to visit. Lovely little town!

We only stayed here one night. Really convenient location in the heart of the Marlborough wine region and an easy walk into town for groceries, dinner or souvenirs. Great room with everything you need to make a simple meal. Comfortable bed. Staff was very friendly and helpful with local information.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The room was comfortable and had a separate sitting room that made it seem roomy. The bathroom was great, with a nice spa tub. It was very clean and the kitchenette was nice. The hostess was lovely and provided us with a lot of information and tips on what to do in the area....

The studio was well equipped with lots of useful things, handy while travelling. The owners were both very pleasant & Donna helpful...

A well-located, clean and comfortable motel. Everything one could ask for. We appreciated being able to check in just after midday as this allowed us plenty of time to visit Yealands Winery, which promotes its environmental credentials (along with its wines) and is well worth the trip. Being within easy walking distance of Blenheim's city centre we had ample restaurants...

We needed a good motel ahead of our journey round the South Island folowing the ferry crossing and this place ticked all the boxes. Blenheim is a lovely town, thanks to Donna & Paul for making our stay enjoyable, if only we'd had more time to sample the extensive wines from the region. One tip, if you need a hearty...
