We booked into Bings very last minute due to some family circumstances. The staff were so friendly, helpful and accommodating. So close to town, very clean and well fitted out. They are very basic units but all that we needed as a family of 5.

Step back in time and enjoy 1960s style motel accommodation in the heart of Blenheim. Concrete block buildings, complete with carports, two tennis courts, newly mown lawns, and swings. Rooms include Atlas Chalet single element + griller stoves, comfortable beds, hot showers, toasters, generous sized crockery. Its all there and functioning.

Quaint motel, clean and comfortable. We have stayed many times over the years...Very convenient to town. Great place to stay if travelling on a budget. I did find the bed uncomfortable, but went and purchased a topper, which sorted that..Yes, it does need updating, but if that occurred, you would not get the cheap rate. would stay again.

All necessary amenities. Clean and walking distance to town. However we ended up pulling the mattress onto the floor to sleep as the mattress and base was well past its use by date and offered no support. We would be happy to stay here again if the bed was in better condition.

We stayed here because the Tourist info said it was cheap and comfotable. It was both. When we got there it did not look inviting and the decor of the rooms was ordinary. Having said that the bed was probably one of the best I have slept in. The rooms were clean and tidy. OK for an overnight stay but... More

So sorry your stay was not as good as you expected. We had recently sprayed your unit for insects so could have been the cause of your find. But we have noted your comments and passed them on to our cleaning staff as we pride ourselves on our standard of cleanliness. Hopefully you will try us again sometime. More

Great location, big rooms, value for money, retro style, well managed, better wheelchair accessible room than places two or three times the cost. Tennis court and games room so something for kids. Even a great restaurant right next door and walking distance to the middle of town.
