Reviewed 27 July 2015 (Elissa W)

Last minute booking, we were greeted warmly, room was super tidy, spacious and in expensive, great tourist info from a true local thanks so much Murray for a great last night in snowy south island, we will be back.

"Ridiculously AMAZING"

Reviewed 11 July 2015 (Max M)

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.


Reviewed 7 June 2015 (Max B, Sydney)

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 helpful and good ambassadors for both the Lugano and Blenheim.
A place we would return to.

“Thoroughly enjoyed my Blenheim stay”

Reviewed 28 May 2015 (BelindadeL2015, Taupo)

I so enjoyed staying at the Lugano recently when in Blenheim for a conference.The staff were very welcoming and helpful and even transported my heavy case by car to the Convention centre in time for my presentation - I was very grateful. The unit was very quiet, clean and had a nice view over to the lovely park which was well lit at night. As a solo woman travelling and staying i felt safe at all times. Nce walking distance to the shops too. I certainly would recommend this accommodation to fellow travellers.

“Great place to stay.”

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.

"Great experience"

We were in Blenheim for a conference and we are very happy to have chosen Lugano. Lovely people, warm welcome - even with the heat pump on for us - quiet, clean and well-appointed, very comfortable and so close to everything. Highly recommended!

"Clean and Welcoming"

the rooms were clean and well appointed. The bed was extremely comfortable and there was no noise. The staff were very helpful and made some useful recommendations as to where we could eat, shop or visit. We would happily stay here again.

"Walking Distance"

Reviewed 4th May 2015 (Christine R, Greymouth)

Chose this place as within walking distance of the Convention Centre where I was attending a Rotary Conference. 3 couples had units and we all found them to be well appointed, clean and comfortable. Location also handy for walking to the town centre. Cost was in the usual range for similar accommodation. Nice outlook onto a grassy square. Plenty of parking.

"Highly recommended"

Reviewed 3rd May 2015 (Rom55, Mount Tamborine)

From the moment we got here we were made to feel very welcome. Down to recommendations of where to eat and some free drinks vouchers! Our room upstairs was amazing. Quality furnishings and fittings, very clean, cozy yet classy. Lots of little extras like a coffee plunger. Great air-con (it was very cold when we visited). Bed was super comfy. Opposite the lovely park - you could watch the fountain change colours at night and go for a quick walk before bed. Close to town and only a short walk to everything. We did a wine tour that picked us up from the front door. The owners booked our transport to the airport no worries. Free wi-fi for the whole stay for all our devices. I would stay here again!

"Very Clean Rooms"

You must stay here. A very central location right opposite the park and only a 2 min walk to town. The owners are very friendly and willing to do anything to make your stay comfortable.

The rooms are newly decorated, with comfortable beds and good bathrooms.

“Great place to stay. Highly recommend.”

Reviewed 4th April 2015 (DonaldRS, Florida)

We stayed there two days and would highly recommend this as a place to stay.
Great location, free parking and Internet. Rooms were clean and modern. Right on edge of the main street and easy walk into town and easy access to roads leading to wineries. The hotel was spotless, comfortable and has easy to access and free parking.

What makes this place so great is the owners. We dealt mostly with Wayne who made wonderful recommendations on where to go for dining and carefully mapped out several outstanding wineries and a chocolate factory as well as other things to do. When we left and drove down to Christchurch for a flight the next day, I couldn't find a light jacket that I had and when I signed on the Internet, I saw an email from Wayne who said they had found it and he promptly overnight-ed it to our next hotel in Wellington. He just went far and above exceptional service. I would stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone.

"Excellent Motel"

Reviewed 23 March 2015 (JaneShearer, Gibbston)

The living room and separate bedroom were comfortable and spacious, clean and tidy. The lodge is close to town. The hosts were very welcoming. The kitchenette is well appointed with lots of tea and coffee and free milk when you arrive. Two wifi coupons were also provided

"Very good operation"

Reviewed 23 March 2015 (Jim M, Bargara, Australia)

We've been trying to find the 'perfect' spot to stay in Blenheim and now we've done it. Pity it took 3 goes.

We had a downstairs studio room which was large and comfortable with a better bed than the one we have at home. And forgot to dig in and find out the brand and model :-(

Also, it is almost in the city centre so shops and many restaurants, including Watery Mouth and Eat Thai, are within easy walking distance

It was quiet, clean really well run and the operators could not have been more helpful.

"Convenient Place to Stay"

Reviewed 22 March 2015 (Avda, London)

If you are visiting Blenheim this is a convenient place to stay for both visiting the vineyards and also Blenheim town. Walking distance of town centre on side of main road but very little traffic noise (none at night). Very helpful and friendly staff, clean and well provided units. This was our second visit and would certainly stay here again. Some good restaurants nearby including the motel recommended Chinese which was one of the best we have visited ANYWHERE!

"Great Place"

Very friendly & helpful, with great rooms
The staff could not have been more helpful - advice on local stores & cafes and making reservations. When there was concern over the Interisland Ferry, the owner even called to find out information directly!
The rooms are very well laid out, with comfortable seating, great beds and a roomy bathroom. A great place to stay!

"Excellent Quality"

Reviewed 17 March 2015 (Margy M, Akaroa)

I stayed here for 3 nights - impeccably clean executive suite, room 1, separate bedroom, shower over spa bath, well catered kitchenette, spacious lounge area. A two minute walk gets you into the town's restaurant and cafe scene with plenty of eating options to choose from.
Hosts, Wayne & Sue, were professional and attentive to my requirements with a great sense of humour. Be aware though, if you arrive in a hunk-of-a-Mercedes with a little road dust spoiling its looks - it could be in for a "Wayne-over" - that's a hose-off with bells & whistles - he's a host who loves to see a good-looking car lookin' good and I appreciated that immensely.
By the way, their scrambled eggs on toast for breakfast are deliciously soft and fresh. Thanks for making my stay fun and enjoyable and I wouldn't hesitate to stay with you again.

We had stayed here previously and found it to be excellent. We returned because of that and found this to continue as an excellent stay - close to town - the closest to the lovely river / bike track and the park opposite is so colorful and relaxing. Beds are very comfy.
The hosts go out of their way to ensure that we were happy and the cooked breakfast was the best ever!
Highly recommend this motor lodge to travelers and families as it is such a pleasant environment.
