Our Hotel History, Scenic Hotel Marlborough

Originally built circa 1975 and known as the Sun Country Lodge, the property was purchased by the Smith Family in the early 1980s and renamed the Blenheim Country Lodge.

Scenic Hotel Group purchased the hotel in September 2002 and it became Scenic Circle Blenheim Country Lodge.

A soft refurbishment to the accommodation rooms commenced in June 2003. The property underwent a rebranding to Heartland Hotel Marlborough May 2009.

In 2010 a major refurbishment was undertaken of all accommodation rooms and public areas with the intention of bringing it up to the four star plus Scenic Hotel standard. The property was rebranded in 2011 as Scenic Hotel Marlborough.

The refurbishment was complete by the end of 2012, including upgraded furnishings, décor and all facilities throughout all accommodation rooms and public areas.

The Restaurant and Bar were rebranded and re-launched as Mondrians Restaurant & Bar in keeping with the aesthetic and design of Dutch modern artist Piet Mondrian of the 1930s.
