Perfectly central in Blenheim with good continental breakfast and limited but convenient small car park. We stayed in the Colours room which was quiet at night despite fronting onto a road. After our exertions of the past fortnight we had a great rest undisturbed by the nevertheless very friendly staff. The bathroom was cramped and in need of redecoration.

Our ferry was very delayed and we didn't arrive in the hotel until 1:15 AM (having called to warn them) and the front desk attendant was very pleasant. We got a beautiful room with a high ceiling and lovely furnishings and the following morning enjoyed their breakfast and lots of helpful suggestions from the front desk staff. We took their... More

Enjoyed our 3 nights at Hotel D'urville. Dined in the restaurant twice and really recommend the whitebait fritters - stuffed with whitebait! Continental breakfast was not your average continental breakfast, good variety of food. Stayed in the Venus room, lovely views across to the hills surrounding Blenheim. Staff always helpful and friendly.

This old converted bank was a fantastic place to explore Blenheim and te surrounding area. Room was spacious and comfortable. Staff friendly and a good continental breakfast to boot. We tried to get into the restaurant one night but is was fully booked so make sure you make reservation.

There are a few parking places each side and we managed to find one each time. No lift, and long stairs to the hotel section of the building (but staff offered to carry our bags). Wifi free but only just worked in our room at the far end of the main corridor as signal was very weak. The room was... More

Stayed 2 nights here. Rooms nice blend of old and new, eccellent dinner. Very good service in the evening, rather lame at breakfast. Breakfast was a big dissapointment taking into concideration the rest of the services offered. Little fruit, low standard industrial jams (the hotel sells eccelent jams, why not offer them for breakfast?). Wifi does not work in room... More

The hotel is part of an old bank, and the interior has been kept so it's really neat. We stayed in the very first room next to reception. It wasn't noisy at night, but in the morning we did hear people walking and their conversations like they were in the room next door. The bed was quite comfortable, there was... More

We booked a Saturday night stay at this hotel with great expectations but left feeling a bit disappointed. The hotel is centrally located and offers some unique decor having been converted from an old bank building. We weren't disappointed with the hotel's decor and location and we were initially impressed with our room. However, the reality of an older converted... More

We spent 4 days over Labour weekend at the hotel. The stay was very nice. The room was clean and nicely appointed. The breakfast was tasty and enjoyable. The staff were all helpful and friendly. Chris particularly was outstanding and made the stay exceptional. Would not hesitate to stay here again.
