We were very disappointed as the suite was not well planned, no comfortable lounge type chairs, with low ceiling in bedroom - that you got to by negotiating up steep stairs - hubby banged his head a number of times. Not a good start to our holiday! Staff were polite and friendly but the room was not good. Will not...

We chose the very best place to stay, since we experienced an earthquake while we were there. Already more than happy with our accomodation, the care, consideration and help given to us following the disturbed night of the earthquake was outstanding. A great team and we would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel.

Great refurb of the old city bank building! Memorable and quaint with clean spacious rooms and good service. When we told one of the vintners we visited the name of our hotel, she said it was the nicest place in town - my wife was very impressed! Some of the rooms actually have bank vault doors. And they offered us...

my brother and I came into town and scouted out a few places to stay and eat for the night. we decided on Hotel d'Urville and have no regrets! Dinner was fantastic, service very good, and rooms plenty comfortable. The building and décor are really cool - a 1910s era financial services building with some great original details and fun...

We thoroughly enjoyed the old school feel of a real hotel with its winding red carpet staircase and four posted beds. The decor was very well chosen and the room was magnificent. Floors were a tad creaky but were probably from the turn of the century. Very warm and cosy with great service from everyone we encountered. Loved it!

To visit all the vineyards and cellar doors (tasting rooms) in the Marlborough District, this is a good choice . A renovated bank-like building with themed guest rooms, the D'Urville is the only luxury option I could find in Blenheim. The rooms vary greatly - loved the D'Urville room, hated the Raja room- so look carefully at all the available...

After a long road trip up the east coast we arrived at this unique hotel. In a old municipal building the rooms have an old flavor and are spacious. The hotel was pretty empty and the restaurant was closed for dinner so we didn't get a chance to really enjoy the place. Blenheim was a busy small town and not...

Thank you for your review of Hotel d'Urville. Blenheim indeed can feel a bit quiet at this time of the year, but we can assure you that enough is going on outside of the city centre and soon the town will be buzzing with tourists and business travelers again.

We stayed here at the start of our honeymoon before kick off two weeks of camping in our campervan at various holiday parks.

No wait, it's a hotel with many differences! It is different to nearly every hotel I have ever stayed in. It respects the old Public Trust building it is in, but not only that, it makes fantastic features out of the old building, such as amazing thick doors, cast iron radiators, stone walls, and so on. Each room is different...
