Overall, my stay was very good, No complaints. The food (I ordered room service twice) was very good! Tasty, well prepared and good value for money. Staff are excellent, very responsive. The venue for my workshop was good.

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. A restaurant...

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. The dryer you mention has been giving us some trouble lately and while we are getting it fixed regularly I am hoping...

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. A small number of our guests do not like the pillow toppers on the beds, and these can be removed if requested. The bathroom does have a small footprint, but most of our guests enjoy the very spacious shower. I do apologise that other...

We stayed one night and didn't have much time at all here due to last minute change in plans, but the hotel was very good. The staff were really helpful, couldn't complain about a thing. The room was modern and spacious with a good size bathroom/shower. Shame we didn't get time to try a dip in the pool. Would certainly...

Enjoyed our stay at scenic Hotel albeit too short. Handy for visiting Wineries and Food market on Sunday morning, which was great for breakfast, serving home grown and made produce. Small pool to refresh oneself after a busy day. Nice bar serving snacks.

Driving from the evening Picton ferry, we chose to stop at the Scenic Hotel in Blenheim. Have never been disappointed with hotels in this chain - staff are always very helpful, beds comfortable, concierge services excellent. Would thoroughly recommend even for a longer stay.

The hotel was super cute, better than I had expected. At first they had me in a small one bed room which I was a little upset about as I requested two beds, but they were more than happy to switch my room on the second evening. In fact they really went out of their way on the second day...
