Hotel d'Urville

52 Queen St., Blenheim, Marlborough, 7240, New Zealand

Every room is unique in the well-preserved, art deco–style Old Public Trust Building, but all are stylish and enjoy a friendly, intimate atmosphere. You could choose the Raja Room, with its Eastern-inspired decorations and carved Javanese daybed; the romantic Angel Room; or the sensory trip of the Colours Room. One room is based on the exploits of Dumont d'Urville, who made voyages to the Pacific and the Antarctic in the 1820s and '30s. The excellent Brasserie Restaurant is classic French. It's open daily, for lunch and dinner.
