We booked this property mainly because there was a restaurant attached and we new after travelling 14 hours we would properly get room service. Due to weather conditions our flight was diverted to Blemheim and we arrived at 7.15pm on a SUNDAY After checking in 7.30pm we advised reception that we would like to have dinner ASAP.The staff member said she would check availability and get back to us regarding dining in the restaurant.2 mins after getting in our room the staff member advised us the CHIEF was not taking any further orders.We we told to walk down the road to find an dinner venue..Not happy with this advise rang restaurant at 7.55pm.Sorry can’t assist Cheifs decision. We are expat kiwis who always say the service in NZ is good.This place needs a new chief.

Very clean and well laid out room. Fantastic views over the harbour and not noisy. I had room service for my dinner as finishing a report for work. Arrived on time and hot! Lots of prawns, scallops and steak all cooked to perfection at a great price- well done. I will definitely recommend you to clients.

Were advised by our motel staff to go there for an excellent evening meal, and excellent it was. The whole restaurant had been outfitted in Christmas Decorations. It took the staff a week to achieve this effect and the result was just great. Our meals were reasonably priced and we could not fault either their presentation or cooking. Would like to especially mention Teresa and Michaela who made us most welcome and carried out their tasks in a professional yet friendly manner. If I owned this restaurant I would do my very best to retain these two.

Pure class, stunning décor, well stocked fridge, comfortable bed, good view of the harbour and a spa bath to die for. Staff negotiated a good price and were friendly and helpful when it came to housing my motorbike for the night.

Spent three nights in total - 2 at the start of our Tasman loop and our last night before heading to the ferry. Upgraded for first two nights to a spa room on level 3 as our booked room had been missed in cleaning (arrived at 6:15pm). Spacious and clean. Had already booked a spa room for our third night a few days later. This was on level 2. Less furniture (small table instead of single lounge chair) gave the room a more spacious feel. Didn't sample the restaurant. Check in and check our process was smooth and car parking was ample.

The back of the hotel overlooks the bay and the water is stunning. The room looked new and there was a kitchen. The layout and the decor was excellent. We ate at the restaurant, the meal was excellent, but we had to wait one hour for our meal. This is ok if you are drinking, but we were hungry after a long day on the ferry. The on site laundry was set out well with lounge chairs and ample reading material, but the water pressure was not good and I had to wash our clothes twice. The shower head was a little circle spray so difficult to wash hair without good pressure.

Our room was an end unit and had balconies on both sides to offer excellent views of the town, Harbour and Marina. All units appear to have water views and it was very relaxing watching ferries etc arriving and departing. In the morning we were able to sit in bed and watch the harbour activity over a cuppa. The room was well appointed wwith king size bed, clean, comfy and quiet. We dined upstairs at the restaurant and had an excellent meal at about average prices. We would loved to have stayed longer as this was the best spot we have stayed in our recent travels

The location is adjacent to the marina and most rooms have some view of the water. We were on a coach tour and having just arrived by ship from Wellington we were ready for a relaxing evening and were pleasantly surprised by the ambience of the restaurant and bar area. The meal was a buffet and was a good quality three courses. Our room was pleasant and comfortable and the bed was good. Not a bad stopover.

Stayed here for a night and happy with this hotel location which near city centre,hotel is clean and modern,heating system is really good and friendly staff from the hotel. Definitely I will recommend this hotel to my friends and colleagues.

spacious modern rooms with fabulous, scenic views of harbour and easy walking distance to waterfront and boat tours. Best breakfast in town, great hospitality and meals. I highly recommend a stay here.
