Recent guest reviews

Well located hotel in the center of Blenheim. Walking distance to main shopping area and many good restaurants. parking available. Well equipeed and spacious rooms. Good restaurant on site as well. Highly recommended.

Stayed here for three nights in April. Check in was quick and the reception staff were always really friendly and would say hello whenever we walked past the reception desk. Our room was clean and spacious and the bed and pillows were probably the most comfortable that I've ever slept on. There was basic kitchen equipment such as a fridge, microwave and kettle and enough cutlery for three people. Good glassware too. Breakfast was nice with a good selection. We had room service quite late one night and it was quick and delicious. I would definitely stay here again.

What a beauty. If you want luxurious accommodation at a reasonable price, give this a go. Huge rooms with every possible taste catered for, marvellous. Easily access from the Wellington to Picton ferry and a great stop on the way south.

Another trip to Blenheim and another stay at Blenheims Best, excellent location with it's proximity to the centre of town for catching up with friends and family. Great room, quiet and comfy with friendly and helpful staff.

Friendly staff and lovely, comfortable modern rooms. Close to the town centre. We were only staying for one evening, but still had time to make use of the free guest laundry. Plenty of parking and quiet location. Really good breakfast. ...My only disappointment?....we'd heard good things of the restaurant, but were unable to eat there as there was an event taking place the night we were there!...

We only spent one night here and did not use the café but the room was a good one. The rooms are smartly decorated, clean and modern. Care has been taken to ensure they have a luxury feel even though this is a hotel with a lot of standard rooms which are used but all sorts of people, travellers and business people alike. We had a lovely bathroom and good size TV which was great as the weather was poor and we were only passing through ready for the ferry crossing from Picton the next morning. We managed to do our laundry in the FREE laundry facility which was wonderful.

Very last minute ‘walk in’ booking as the BnB we had booked turned out not to be wheelchair accessible. Very friendly, accommodating front desk staff who were able to provide a room and allowed me to check the bathroom before signing up. Lovely spacious room, fabulous bed and pillow selection. Can’t comment on food as chose not to dine in the restaurant given recent reviews. The small kitchenette was welcome. Easy walk to town.

Room in new block, great size, great facilities. Breakfast was good and we had a meal in the restaurant which was highly recommended. The staff across the whole facility were very accommodating and welcoming. Plenty of parking and close to town.

We chose this hotel for a 3-night stay as part of our trip around New Zealand, and particularly because of its proximity to Marlborough's many vineyards. The hotel is modern in style and is within walking distance of the centre of Blenheim and its good selection of shops, restaurants, bars and coffee shops. There is free parking in the hotel grounds. Our room, a classic studio room, was comfortably furnished, although we were a little surprised to find a single bed in addition to a double bed, but that was not a problem. The hotel has a guest laundry, which many hotels in NZ have, and which is very useful when travelling for several weeks. There was a nice bar and a restaurant, which we only ate in once as the hotel had a large tour group in which made the restaurant quite noisy and full! We ate in nearby restaurants twice and dining options in Blenheim are good. The hotel has an outdoor swimming pool and terrace areas, which were very pleasant and well maintained. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay and can recommend this hotel as a good comfortable base for exploring the Marlborough wine region.

Clean, comfortable rooms. Delicious food in the restaurant and very accommodating staff. Dined 3 times for breakfast and once for dinner, they were all excellent. Easy walk to shops and fine restaurants. The perfect place to stay in the Marlborough area.
