This hotel is conveniently located opposite Seymour Park, a short walk to town for restaurants, shops, ATM's etc. The facilities are clean and tidy and there is a lovely bar and largish restaurant. We only had breakfast at the restaurant - which was very nice - but the menu for the other dining options looked lovely. This hotel has great...

Nice room; spacious and comfy bed. The bathroom is well appointed. There is a fridge in the room and laundry facilities available. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I lost an earring at dinner and Ranjith helped me look for it and called the restaurant for me. They found my earring for me. Great place to stay

Stayed 2 nights here. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Good location close to town. Breakfast here was ok, not a great deal to choose from. Bed was a 'king' - 2 singles pushed together so there was a lump in the middle of the bed and it felt like we were sleeping in a divot on each side. Beds however...

Carmel_Horsley, General Manager at Scenic Hotel Marlborough, responded to this review

Thanks for taking the time to review our hotel. Sorry that you were not totally happy with the bed. The beds are split king beds, which are zipped together and with the addition of the feather mattress topper in theory you should never feel the join. However not the case on this occasion, apologies. Best regards, Carmel Horsley, General Manager.

This is a very welcoming & comfortable Hotel, well located for travellers to the town or passing through. We had a large vehicle which would not have fitted into their hotel parking but they are allowed to use the church park across the road provided you place the hotel card in the window. Restaurant is very calming, looking out onto...

Would happily stay here again. Room was very comfortable, plenty of space. Super clean. The laundry room on our floor was perfect as it meant we didn't have to continue our holiday with a dirty case of clothes. The location of the hotel was ideal for the town and the vineyards Hope I can be back again another day.

The hotel is very close to the town center and 10 mins drive to the vineyards. We stayed at the Superior King Room on the 3 floor. The spacious room is well designed throughout with modern white bathroom and a very comfortable bed. It has a fluffy soft padding, feels like cloud when you lay down.
