Greg, nz2 night business trip

Late check in no problem
We were running behind on our trip and I saw online that the check-in closed at 8:30. Called them up and they couldn't have been more helpful - when we got in about 11pmthe room was open, heater on, and check-in documents waiting on the table for me to sign. A friendly note as well. The room was large, well equipped, far better than we needed for our short time in it; when I come back for a longer time in Blenheim I will definitely stay here again as for a longer stay the comfort of the room would really enhance the time. Only criticism was that the mobile version of their website doesn't have a hotlink to their phone so in order to call them I had to copy the number out and dial it manually - minor inconvenience but I was on the road and under time pressure. No reflection on the motel quality, and easily sorted I'm sure.
