We had everything we needed for our one-night stay. The motel is well run and excellent value. Donna, the proprietor, is very friendly and helpful. We highly recommend this motel as an excellent place to...

It was scrupulously clean, well provisioned, including good laundry facilities and very friendly homely staff and a quiet, easily accessible location. The rooms are well furnished with quality goods, even down to the salt and pepper! Well recommended

Great friendly hospitality. Have stayed here a couple of times and always met by nice friendly staff. Rooms are cozy and quiet and only short walk from town. Would happily stay here again if I go to Blenheim.

The Motel ticks all the boxes, its modern, clean, comfortable, has great amenities and is very close to central Blenheim allowing access to cafe's and the beautiful gardens. However its best aspect is the owner/operators Donna and Paul, their genuine hospitality is rivaled by none and Ive stayed in many places around the world. During the recent earth quakes they...

We stayed as a couple, and everything was perfect. From the wonderful hospitality, through to the excellent accommodation. We were upgraded, which was lovely, and felt welcome as soon as we arrived. The motel was beautifully clean, comfortable and really well appointed for us to walk into the ASB entertainment centre, which was only 5 minutes away. As this is...

My mother, my partner and myself recently stayed at 171 on High while we attended my uncle's 50th birthday. We stayed in a two bedroom corner apartment on the ground floor and it was lovely. Comfy, large beds, beautiful bathroom, and great facilities. The absolute delight of the stay though was from Paul and Donna. When we stayed there was...

Good location to town, everything we needed, clean, nice room. Staff were friendly. The only annoying thing was a light outside the room which made it quite bright even though they have dark curtains. Would definitely stay again.

The motel is centrally located but quiet, with a very comfortable bed.. The host was friendly and very helpful. I just stayed one night after coming south by ferry. Would be very happy to stay there again, for longer next time.
