Our room was lovely, spacious, clean and very well presented, owners are very friendly and helpful, arranged for us to check in after hours when we were running late. Was only there for one night but wished we could have stayed longer

We stayed 2 nights to attend an RNZAF Reunion, very convenient to all venues & the heart of town, very clean, lovely décor, beautifully comfortable bed, fabulous bathroom & the shower perfect. Hosts very accommodating & friendly, nothing to much trouble. The Palms will be our `go to' motel in Blenheim for future functions

The welcome was excellent and the rooms are always beautifully presented and clean! Staff and especially the owners are very helpful and friendly. Make sure you ask advice on the region as they will point you in the right direction for anything you need to know or do.

Perfect motel experience right in the heart of Blenheim. Good value and very comfortable yet stylish, I'm pleased I found it - it was a great start to my South Island visit. There are outside seating areas and BBQs too. Try the Chateau Marlborough nearby if you're hungry - they serve seriously good food.

Room is clean, comfortable and pleasant. Location is ideal as it is near the town. Service is very good too, we checked in late that night and everything were set up nicely for us to rest after a long journey. Definitely a great place to stay! Thumbs up!

3 nights here to visit friends in Blenheim and as a Marlborough touring base. Spot on motel accommodation, clean, modern interiors. Friendly and knowledgeable owners. Blenheim always delivers good quality cafe and evening meals all of which are in short walking distance from the Palms. Would stay again.
