Hotel Accommodation Blenheim in Luxury
The beautiful town of Blenheim is found in the Marlborough Region of New Zealand. With a population of around 30,300 people, Blenheim is a relatively small town, so you can relax in the peace and tranquillity of this slow moving spot. Located just 20 miles from Nelson, the closest major city, there is only the Mount Richmond Forest Park that separates your Blenheim accommodation from the rest of civilization in this stunning part of New Zealand’s South Island.
Your Blenheim accommodation could be part of history
Whilst the town may at first seem quite small, don’t let that deceive you. New Zealand’s Wine Industry is at the centre of Blenheim’s history. If you want to take a wine tour, then Blenheim accommodation is certainly the best choice for you. The town and the luxury accommodation Blenheim has to offer has another great reason why you should visit too, because it is located in the most northerly part of the south island. Whilst other parts of the south island may see wetter and even colder climates, Blenheim accommodation is blessed with warmer and more favourable weather.
Historically, the town of Blenheim found it’s name following the defeat of French and Bavarian troops at the Battle of Blenheim. This historic event really put the small town of Blenheim on the map, so to speak, as it is what the town is named after.
The town, and indeed the entire region of Blenheim is very industrious, with the Marlborough region’s major exports being the famous Sauvignon Blanc and various other wines born in the region. The town of Blenheim is just as industrious as its region. The town trades many farming products, from horticultural to pastoral goods.
Whether you choose from one of the simple hotels in Blenheim, or if you choose to opt for 5 star accommodation Blenheim hoteliers can offer you, you could very well be part of history when you stay in Blenheim accommodation.
