We had a wonderful time at the Lugano and cannot say enough about the outstanding hospitality of Roger. A great place to stay in Blenheim! The hotel is centrally located and close to many restaurants and shops. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great hotel at a reasonable price.

Thank you for review and strong recommendation Jason. Judy and I try really hard to provide superior service levels and are delighted that we met your expectations

Reviewed 5 January 2017 via mobile

We booked Blenheim to reduce the drive after arriving in Picton. Our only regret was not booking longer. The Lugano was a lovely motel with everything we needed and being across the road from the park made sitting on the balcony drinking wonderful NZ wine very pleasant. The room was on the small size but also excellent value for money....

Thanks Kimberley for the great review and strong recommendation. Our 1 bedroom units at approx. 38sqm, are a good size, however, if more space is required next time stay in our 2 bedroom apartments that are approx. 50sqm. As you have found our park like gardens with trees that surround our property combined with the unobstructed views across to the...

On our one night stay we booked one room for our family of four and one room for our niece and partner. Roger greeted us warmly and arranged adjacent ground floor rooms. The rooms are modern and comfy. He offered the use of mountain bikes and helmets, so my 12yo son and I went exploring around town. Oh yes...lots of...

Lugano_11, Owner at Lugano Motor Lodge, responded to this review

Hi Stephen, thank you for your excellent review and kind words. It was great that you were able to enjoy our free bikes, and as you now know we have recently purchased another quality mountain bike for our guests. Renting a mountain bike elsewhere will cost $45 per bike (for 1/2 day) so this is a great service and as...

We walked in to a spotless well laid out modern room. Roger was super helpfull and even offered to drive us to a wedding we were attending. Had a great sleep in a very comfy bed and quiet surroundings. For fussy worldwide travellers we cant fault Lugano or the hosts. We will be back !!

Pleasant surprises are always welcome. In this industry, we understand it is very hard to please everybody, and as you are self-confessed 'fussy worldwide travelers' we are delighted that your expectations were exceeded. To give our guests a great nights sleep in Blenheim's prime and unbeatable location is why we purchased this business just over a year ago. To satisfy...

We stayed at the Lugano for two nights. Roger and Judy were excellent hosts and were very welcoming. I did not need to know too much about the town as I had grown up near Blenheim "some" years ago.. The Lodge was perfectly positioned to all that the town offered and opposite the beautiful Seymour Square. Very accessible to all...

My sister & I enjoyed our stay of 2 nights. Judy & Roger were welcoming & informative hosts. Our one bedroom apartment was clean & had everything we needed. It had an extra single bed in the loungeroom. The location is central, has off-street parking & is opposite a beautiful city park. The Lugano is in close proximity to a...

Roger made us feel very welcome when we arrived to enquire about a room fo the Saturday night. We had a very stressful week working in Nelson and chose to drive after work on the Saturday to Blenheim for the night. We enquired at a couple of places before here and were not impressed with the customer service we received....

Lugano Motor Lodge is a two storey motel in the centre of Blenheim, which is a great little town in the Marlborough wine region.

Everything about this stay was made easy from booking in to booking out.
