Great Motel
An excellent motel situated only a short walk from the canter of Blenheim. The rooms were clean, comfortable and well appointed. The rooms we had didn't have air conditioning which would have made the stay more comfortable however there was a pedestal fan supplied which made the temperate more bearable. We would stay here again if we are back in town.

Unexpected Stay
An issue issue with our flight meant an unexpected evening in Blenheim. Great spot, fabulous customer service, the lady had a lovely warm manner. All the extras in the room appreciated as well particularly given we hadn’t planned on staying - also great to do a quick load of washing.

Outstanding - highly recommended motel
I really enjoyed my brief stay at Ellena Court Motel. On arrival I received a warm, friendly greeting and was made to feel right at home. For me the location was ideal for getting to all the places I needed to be. Seymour Square and the town centre is an easy walk away and it’s just a quick drive to other places of interest such as Pollard Park (still within walking distance if you’re energetic and have the time) and the Marlborough Museum. Just across and along the road is the Bamboo Garden restaurant which is a great option for an evening takeaway meal. The studio I stayed in was smartly decorated, clean and well appointed with everything I needed - comparable to five star hotels I’ve stayed in but with the added convenience of self catering facilities. Being quite tall I really appreciated the spacious bathroom with open, frameless shower area which I noticed is also set up for disabled guests. Given the opportunity I’ll happily book again and recommend this motel to others.
