Reception was efficient and friendly. We arrived in torrential rain, so not the best. We walked through the town but apart from a lovely park and river walk it is just the usual selection of shops. We had a session in the hot tub which was pleasant. We decided to eat in the hotel restaurant, he food was lovely and...

Blenheim is not exactly a hopping town. We rolled in on a Saturday evening and I think they had rolled up the sidewalks. When we rolled up to this little gem, we were all surprised at the modern, comfortable rooms.

This hotel is small, yet very comfortable, quiet, and eco-friendly. The laundry is clean, and washing machines dispense detergent when filling with water-a nice touch. Our traveling companions wanted to tour wineries, but it was late in the day. The hotel staff were extraordinarily helpful in recommending how to make the best use of the time they had. One note...

Stayed here for just two nights. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the service throughout the hotel was first rate. Looking out over Seymore Square, it is well positioned for the town, river and park. The room was well equipped but would benefit from dressing gowns, as the pool does not have changing facilties.
