I have stayed here regularly over the last two years with my Job. I have found John and Wendy to be helpful and professional. I also had no problem when on holiday choosing to stay here with my family. Overall I am disappointed as changes to my territory mean I will not be staying here anymore. Regards Jimmy Sales

We stayed here on our honeymoon knowing the Bella Vista chain and how clean and accommodating their lodging was. The motel in Blenheim was just as great as the others. Don't let the word "motel" throw you off. The rooms are clean and it's centrally located and a very short walk to the town center with restaurants and shopping. Wifi...

Great motel, really clean and comfortable. Friendly management. Both fat and skinny pillows which is great because I like skinny ones and you normally only get big fat ones. Good location with plenty of parking. I would recommend to friends.

Thank you for your wonderful feedback. We are glad you liked our touch of the different pillow types as both Wendy and I also like different pillows and thought guests might like that too. We look forward to hosting you again.

This was the best motel I had in my 2wks vacation in SI. Couple owners were really warm and friendly. Great facilities and very clean room, with 50+ Sky channels. The rates were really value for money. I would definitely go back again if I visit Blenheim again.

We arrived earlier than the 2pm check in time but were welcomed warmly and encouraged to stay. The accommodation was well prepared and suited us perfectly. We used the kitchenette facilities extensively and appreciated the roominess of the main room, as there were 3 of us. We were attending a convention at the Marlborough Convention Centre which was a short...

We arrived at The Bella Vista Motel 19/02/14 for a 2 night stay, we were greeted and welcomed, even though we had arrived much earlier than the advised check in time. we enjoyed 2 fabulous nights in a very comfortable studio with more facilities than we would have expected to find in a more expensive 5star accommodation.

This motel was close to the CBD, it was quiet, internet access was handy, it had a really well equipped kitchenette with hotplates and saucepans, it was a good sized room and the owner was friendly and helpful.

The hosts John and Wendy were charming, efficient and very helpful. The location was very central yet very quiet. I thought the standard of cleanliness in the rooms was excellent. I would recommend this motel as it suited all our needs
