Lovely customer service, Donna gave us lots of tips for things to do in and around Blenheim, and for the remainder of our trip on the South Island. Our room was warm and comfortable for the 4 adults in a 2 bedroom unit. We will stay again!

Lovely service we were in Blenheim for a funeral and Donna was very caring and kind ensuring all our needs were being met. Two bedroom unit with shared bathroom. Very clean and tidy and on ground floor which suited an older family member. Donna even called us when we had left to ensure we were OK due to bad weather...

Previous reviewers have hit the nail on the head with 171 on High... It is a delight! I arrived at 10am for a two night stay. I had no plans, but wanted to arrange for a wine tour.

We turned up without a booking, and we were made to feel welcome. We were given local advice and recommendations. Hotel has great facilities-laundry room, spa baths, dvd's to borrow etc and very close to town centre.

171 on High Motel was fantastic for our stay in Blenheim. I can't thank Donna enough for being so very welcoming and helpful on. The heating had been turned on ahead of our arrival so it was so nice to step inside our room from the cold. Very tasteful decor, sparkling clean and very well priced. Highly recommend.

Warmth and hospitality of a B@B, amenities and facilities of a 4-star plus hotel! My parents and I spent 2 weeks traveling all around NZ and stayed in various accommodation styles, from 4 star hotels to motels to backpacker budget locations. Nowhere came close to our experience at 171 on High Motel in Blenheim. Donna & Paul (the hosts/owners) are...

Highly recommend staying here. Donna the owner saved our trip, thanks so much! Arrived in NZ with no luggage as Emirates had lost it. I was hoping to do some hiking but alas my boots were in the luggage. Told my story to Donna, low and behold she presents me with a pair that had been left months earlier. Fit...

Great place to stay! As a large group the owners went out of there way to make our stay as easy as possible. The rooms were warm and had everything we needed. A lot of thought had been made to make the rooms attractive. The owners were very welcoming. Close to everything. Highly recommend!

We stayed one night and found our room comfortable and spotlessly clean. It was very handy to restaurants and cafes and close to town which is a bonus. We would highly recommend staying there. We would definitely stay there again. Bob and Cilla Jamison Christchurch
