We were visiting Blenheim for our wedding anniversary (as we got married at a local vineyard 15 years ago) and wanted a quiet motel (i.e. no road noise) in a central location. I had stayed at Lugano a year ago on a girls trip away and enjoyed it then so I booked in again & was not disappointed at all.... More

Lugano Motor Lodge is a very nice, comfortable, clean, and centrally located accommodation in Blenheim. Our room was spacious, and we made use of the refrigerator, microwave, eating area, and sitting area for visiting. It's directly across from a lovely park, Seymour Square, a block and a half from a market, next to the main town area, and within close... More

Blenheim is a great place to visit. When we found we had to make a trip to Blenheim and stay the night we thought "great, not a problem" however when there's several sports events on at once you need to get your bookings in very early. Not able to get into our usual place we had to look around. Lugano... More

The place was super nice. Although we were here in the winter the heated blankets made us feel warm and toasty. More importantly the staff was so nice. Additionally the WIFI was plentiful. I would recommend this place to anyone who visits Blenheim.

Initially selected the Lugano as the indicated facilities included free WiFi and parking and a king size bed. What a gem the Lugano proved to be. The room was very comfortable, well equipped and quiet. Lugano's location close to the commercial centre and across from Seymour Square was the icing on the cake. We found the staff to be very...

This lodge is well taken care of. It's very clean. The location is wonderful, and there's a beautiful park across the street. The owners were so kind and helpful, in particular when I was having difficulty with one of their clothes dryers. They went the extra mile. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

This place is so handy to town, an easy walk to many restaurants and the theatre. Great fast wifi, could not be cleaner, nice modern room, on the main road but still quiet. Friendly hosts. Would stay here again.
