Stayed here for just two nights. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the service throughout the hotel was first rate. Looking out over Seymore Square, it is well positioned for the town, river and park. The room was well equipped but would benefit from dressing gowns, as the pool does not have changing facilties.

My wife and I recently toured New Zealand, both the north and south island, with AAT Kings. We stayed at this hotel after crossing the channel from Wellington. Without question, this was the best hotel that we stayed at. The rooms were clean. The service was impeccable, I was really impressed with the dinner, that was included with the tour....

We were only there for a very brief overnight stay, but we really enjoyed the short time we had there. Nothing negative to say about the hotel, we would recommend it to anyone traveling through this area.

We stayed 6 nights, and the hotel was great! Walking distance to the main town, and the room itself was large and spacious. Blenheim is a very boring little town, was more than happy to leave after 6 nights! The staff at the hotel were very helpful and friendly. The bar was great also, very friendly staff! Overall if we...

This was a nice hotel in a good location, walking distance to the entire town. It had good facilities like a pool and washers/dryers (if they were a bit expensive). The food in the bar was good as well.

We stayed for one night en route to the ferry and we will make a point of returning. The staff were all exceedingly friendly and helpful, and our room was great, and there was no road noise to disturb our sleep. We enjoyed a delicious meal in the restaurant and the beef fillet was the best I've had. Nice selection...

I am not only a client but a member of the Scenic Hotel family. Upon arrival, I am greeted by my first name as I enter the reception area. Going the extra mile is standard - I arrived 6 hours prior to actual check-in time but was shown to my already ready room. The chef treated me to the pork...

We have been there for just 1 night.. I'm still not sure how to vote the hotel, I have different positive and negative points we have settled. Positive: friendly staff, hotel in middle of the town with shops and restaurants and a big supermarket around the corner. Enough parking slots, laundry, wifi and big rooms with small bathroom.

Hello Daniel. Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your recent stay. While you have enjoyed some aspects of our hotel and service, I can see we have not met your needs in other areas.

Ok sized rooms with ok outlets and wifi. Tiny bathroom. Two single bed with overly soft mattresses. The beds shifted place when I got up. Dated looking lobby and poor breakfast It was just ok and I'd certainly try somewhere else if I returned.

Hi Steve Thanks for taking the time to review your recent stay at Scenic Hotel Marlborough.

The bathroom does have a small footprint, but most of our guests enjoy the very spacious shower. I do apologise that other...
