We stayed two nights and I spoke to the lovely couple (owners) on the second morning that I had no wifi in room 12. Their suggestion was to sit in the reception and they would check it... More

Visit here for a few nights and found complex a lot larger than appears from the road. We're staying out the back in the rooms by the pool, very spacious and generally all round nice rooms. Very friendly and accomodating owners, good internet connection speeds. Our unit in some places looked a little tired with some paint peeling but only... More

We struck an unfortunate room. The front of the complex looked lovely and modern so first impressions were good, however our room was dated. It was so disappointing. To make matters worse the kitchen cutlery, pots, and plates had not been cleaned properly. Yuck.

This complex is large and offers so many different room options. We were travelling with a sports team and could house most of the team in one wing which kept the kids away from other guests. The owners were very accommodating and made our stay great. They assisted with extra cooking items and serviced the rooms daily. The only downside... More

Great spot handy to supermarkets, good restaurant, pharmacy etc. The rooms are large and comfortable. The hosts were very helpful and welcoming and the value was good. As a base to explore the area it worked well for us. Highly recommended.

Admirals motor lodge was an ok stop off in Blenheim. It was fine. We stayed for a week and as it was we thought best value available. Previously we have stayed at Vintners Retreat but it wasn't available for the duration of our stay. Location was ok.

This is a really good B&B in a delightful town. The welcome is amazing and a really good choice for breakfast. The room was compact but absolutely okay. At least we had a large window which let in good light. The house is interesting, clean and very informal and with the breakfast you meet other people. Picton is worth while... More
