We had a great stay at this motel. The location was great, ample parking and nice modern rooms. Had a small issue trying to get onto the wifi network but this was quickly resolved by the helpful staff. Very clean and was great to have a kitchenette and free milk in the room. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks

On arrival we were given incorrect information about what was available on that public holiday as far as dinner options were concerned. Room was clean and serviced daily. We stayed in a number of hotels etc during our recent holiday and this had the MOST uncomfortable bed out of the lot! Inner springs had become outer springs! But roomy and... More

We chose to stay here because we like self catering but also a separate bedroom area. Only one block from the supermarket and two from the middle of town. Our hosts were very helpful, offered us a lift to the aircraft museum and also took us to the bus station on a very nasty cold day when we were leaving.... More

Great and helpful reception on arrival. I was staying for a conference nearby, and I was given a map and information about nearby locations of note. Excellent standard of rooms and clean. Free wireless a bonus.

When you travel on your own everything seems that much harder to achieve but Heather & Martin could not have been nicer or more helpful. From recommendations where to eat to having a pedicure! and the rooms were cool, spacious and comfortable.

The room at the Palms was spacious and comfortable. There was enough room in the sitting room for us to lounge at the end of the day comparing notes and plan for the rest of the day. The kitchen is well set-up for light meals in the room. The bedrooms are super comfy. I had a bit of a problem... More

Warm, friendly and welcoming hosts to greet us. Wonderful first impression of Blenheim! We stayed in an upstairs room, it was clean and tidy and felt like home away from home. An eco candle was burning when we arrived, the room smelt delicious. We had a beautiful, snuggly rug on our bed which kept us warm on a cold and... More

Great central venue. Clean and spacious. Only lacking enough bikkies for three of us... only 2. Would highly recommend this place. Sun catcher too. One room with queen/king and 2 singles in lounge. Easy access to concert venues and restaurants and shops.

I certainly enjoyed my stay at the Blenheim palms motel. We were here for the weekend for a wedding and this motel far exceeded our expectations. From the outset, the manageress/owner is lovely, welcoming and informative. The motel is impeccably maintained and stocked.
