This motel was great. Donna was very obliging when we required a room at the last minute. The rooms were incredibly clean and well presented; a pleasure to stay in. Would definitely recommend this motel to anyone who is visiting Blenheim.

Great spot don't stay anywhere else. We stay with 2 other couples. It is close to town, reasonably priced, comfortable large bed which I needed after the race, quiet at night so you got a good night sleep, clean room and great hospitality from the owners Paul and Donna. This is our first choice for accomodation in Blenheim and should...

Donna is such a delight. Nothing is a problem and you are made so welcome. If you want a great place to stay in Blenheim this is it. It is also well placed only a few minutes walk to the centre of town and the supermarket. I can really recommend it.

This motel appears to have been very recently refurbished and is ultra modern and tasteful. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment and there were flat screen TV's in both bedrooms and the living room. The bathroom was generous, modern, spotless and generous toileteries. The owners gave us access to their double garage which is used as storage. We were...

Friendly greetings and gave lots of information relevant to Blenheim and Picton, even with the challenges of the day taking place. The facility was clean and tidy, although a bit tight with all our gear. Laundry was clean and tidy and the manager / owner shared some great conversations.

Very nice immaculately clean room with sunny balcony and kitchenette. Easy to find and friendly owner Donna really helpful with what to see and do in the area. Noticed there was a guest laundry as well which would be handy for longer stays.

Recently visited in a work/leisure capacity - really central location, bags of parking for convenience. Rooms super clean, spacious and well equipped. Could see staying short or longer term! Milk was even hand delivered to us by children, so sweet Bags of wifi too, always an essential! Will definitely be back on my next visit, thanks all!

Initially our room allowed too much light in at night. However the manager was only too happy to assist and shifted us to a more comfortable suite. The Managers were obliging. The cleanliness could not be questioned and the guest laundry very convenient. Easy access to everything Blenheim has to offer Vineyards, shopping and movies.

We enjoyed our stay at 171 on High. The rooms are clean and tidy, and the owners were very helpful and friendly. I think the only downside was that the room did get very hot and stuffy even with the windows open and the fan on. It was a great base for exploring Blenheim and the Marlborough region

The room included kitchen, bathroom facilities and television/dvd with everything in immaculate condition, providing everything we could wish for. The owners were on hand whenever we had a question and could not have been more helpful. The Motel is in a quiet location but close to central facilities in the town. We stayed over a long weekend towards the end...
