What an amazing motel; clean, modern, comfortable bed, parking and more. But, its the hosts that make a stay and an experience and the couple that own and operate 171 on High Motel are exceptional going well above and beyond. We would recommend this place as the place to stay when visiting Blenheim and the surrounding area

Owner Donna was friendly, responsive and helpful. She suggested places to visit and attended to us about how to operate the heater. The room was clean and well equipped and the location was good, just a short walk away from the town centre. We will certainly stay there again when we are next in Blenheim.

This motel is an ideal place for a stop-over in Blenheim. Donna and Paul provide a warm and friendly welcome and the units are modern, well equipped and immaculately clean. We will be staying here on all future visits to Blenheim.

Easy to find and within a 5 minute drive of town centre. Pleasant room, very clean, all usual facilities. Very friendly and helpful reception. Laundry uses large commercial machines which provide very quick and thorough wash and dry.

Motel was very easy to find from airport. Facilities were very clean and good amenities with plenty of tea and coffee. Real milk which was a bonus (not those ghastly little capsules of milk that last forever). Beds were comfortable and no noise issues from the street or other guests. Shower had very good water pressure and toiletries were appreciated.... More

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...
