Fantastic place to stay - Centrally located and lovely accommodating staff. We were very happy to have booked and stayed here. It suited our needs completely. Spacious, quiet and well appointed room. Had a take away evening meal from the bar that was so plentiful it ended up being ample enough for breakfast. Won't even bother to look at other...

A small pool spa and sauna with a short walk into the town centre,helpful staff and rooms that are perfectly adequate for a stop off on your tour of South Island.A dining room that caters well for all tastes without being pretentious.

This hotel has a good location, convenient parking and really nice rooms. The dinner served is good with reasonable portions. Breakfast is better, because the toast is served hot! The self-laundry room on the 3rd floor is excellent for traveller's on a long trip. In a few hours you have all your clothes clean, dry and ironed.

Nice location across the park from the town centre. Spotlessly clean room with very comfortable bed and internet via cable or wifi. It took us a while to locate our hair dryer which was hidden away in a cupboard. Our disappointment was our dinner. The restaurant was really cold with the aircon cranked right up, requiring wearing a sweater, and...

There are only 5* on the Trip Advisor rating scale, which falls short of the proper rating for what these people did for us. The staff did the usual courtesy of attending to everything surrounding our stay. Friendly service, excellent recommendations, wonderful engagement, and all the usual amenities. What set this group apart from anywhere else I've ever stayed was...

Stayed while in Marlborough for work & found the reception & welcome very nice. Room was wonderful & the air conditioning was very welcome as it was quite hot. Room was quiet, ie you couldn't hear through the walls which was really nice. Bathroom was nicely done & clean. Breakfast was nice, buffet style available as well as a'la carte....

Scenic hotel is a great place to stay if you are visiting the Marlborough region of New Zealand. The beds and pillows are very comfy and the hotel staff are very friendly. The restaurant serves good food as well. The hotel is centrally located, although this is a very small city. All and all a great experience.
