Travel 2 Australia & New Zealand 2018/19

Marlborough At the northernmost tip of the South Island, the Marlborough Sounds is a maze of convoluted waterways which, despite their relatively small area, comprises a remarkable one-fifth of New Zealand’s coastline. To the south lies the Marlborough wine country, one of the finest in New Zealand, with world-class vineyards clustered around the charming village of Blenheim.

SCENIC HOTEL MARLBOROUGH, BLENHEIM 3 H The relaxed and newly refurbished Scenic Hotel Marlborough enjoys a really convenient location directly opposite the beautiful Seymour Square Gardens and just a 5-minute walk from Blenheim town centre. Blenheim is easily reached by air or road and the Interislander Ferry Terminal at Picton is just 20 minutes away by car. With the Marlborough Wine Trail close by, the hotel is also well placed for exploring the surrounding wine region.
