Thanks for a much appreciated review.
Stayed three nights. Comfortable enough and tidy. A few negatives however which are asking for a refresh if they want to keep up with the local competition:
1) Stingy Sky TV package, with only about 10 channels (and that includes the free-to-air ones). One sports channel only and no kids channels or news channels.
2) Stingy wifi. As others have mentioned 50MB is really a small amount these days. Wouldn't have been so bad except cell reception in the unit we stayed in was inexplicably poor, so we couldn't effectively use our phone as a hotspot. So, I have listed this motel as "no free wifi", as 50MB doesn't really count.
3) We couldn't get the drier to work and one staff member seemed to be having a grumpy day when asked to assist (the other staff were friendly though).
On the positive side, our room had a very good shower & bath setup!
Thanks. Have a nice day
From usa for business for about 6 weeks and the owners treated me very nice just like the very first day . Full kitchen, great parking, nice chill place to enjoy the weather
Good wifi for anyone out of town
Will choose this motel every time I'm in Blenheim
A great review. Thank you
This motel comes with Kitchette, Cook top frig.
Very clean and quiet with serviced rooms daily which surprised me.
Mattress like many places needs regular turning as high at the bottom than the top but not by much, my partner has a reflux problem so anything slightly lower he feels it.
Large bathroom in the studio with a spar, plenty of towels.
Didn't use the pool too cold for us Aussies but others did.
Could have had another bedside table, only one was a pain.
Hosts were very obliging and made our stay very nice.
Thank you. We appreciated your review. Regards, Bruce
So it's a motel, you know what to expect. Still, easy to find, good parking, well equipped room and it all worked. Would be good if the light outside could be dimmed late on as despite the good curtains still lit the room up.
The location of this motel is good. It is quite old and so the units are very spacious - at least ours was. The facilities are good and the separate toilet and shower room was great when travelling in a group. The only downside was the internet. If a place does not have wifi access, that would be ok, as long as it was clear when booking. This motel states that it has wifi access and it does, but only for 50Mbs for all of us. That's correct - 50Mb. As you can imagine it does not last very long. When we took this up with the managers/owners, they were unfazed and seemed to think it quite acceptable. They gave us another voucher but that only helped for five minutes.
So it is not the lack of wifi that is the problem, it is asdvertising it as a facility and not appreciating that 50mbs presents any problem. They need to adjust to the 21st century. If they cannot have the service, fine - just don't say that they do.
