“Comfortable room, friendly helpful staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2012

This motel is well situated yet quiet as it isn't on a main street - a short walk takes you into town and a supermarket is right around the corner. The owners gave us some very helpful advice on what wineries to visit and where to eat. We had a studio room which was adequate for our needs with a kitchenette and recliner armchair - my only negative was the bathroom. While there is a curtain around the shower, there is nothing to keep the water from travelling across the whole bathroom floor. If you travel with someone who likes the shower on full blast then be prepared to wipe the bathroom out!! There were, however, plenty of towels.
Definitely recommend it.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2012

I really enjoyed my time staying at the Blenheims Palms. It's right in the city centre so easy to get to everything. Supermarket just around the corner. Room was mostly clean (basin was a bit dirty) and everything was good quality. Was glad to find real coffee and plunger!! Towel and pillows were a highlight, so luxurious. All in all, definitely a positive experience!

We stayed here for one night. Room was very clean, nicely layed out and fully equipped. Managers were friendly and welcoming. Good value and a very pleasant experience.

Very friendly owners, couldn't do enough for us and our two small Agility competitors, lovely decor and very high quality sheets, towels, bed coverings etc - up to a standard of nice hotels overseas. Real coffee supplied with a plunger - a very nice touch and appreciated. Fantastic location within walking distance of shops including supermarket.

Room Tip: All the rooms seem to be of a high standard, we paid a small extra to be upgraded from a studio (ups...
