“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 19 December 2012

We stayed here at the beginning of our 10 day road trip with our good friends, who have stayed here before.
Very nice and close to the wineries and other attractions.
Loved the set-up of the 2 rooms. It felt very private.
Great staff. Wonderful with any of our questions.
It was great to return to after our mailboat cruise which was cool and rainy.
Highly recommend it.

Very friendly and genuine staff. Felt welcome and at home from when we stepped in the door. Could not have asked for more helpful hosts. The room we stayed in was clean, modern and is in a great location.
We wish we could have stayed longer - recommend it highly.

This is my second review for 171 on High, although I stay here 5 or 6 times a year when visiting family. Chris and Ian are terrific hosts and nothing is ever too much trouble. The rooms are immaculate and the location is 5 minutes walk from town and also a large supermarket.

I imagine that overseas guests would really appreciate Chris and Ian's friendly welcome and suggestions on places to visit, eat etc. Why stay anywhere else?

Stayed recently for three nights, hosts were wonderful, helpful and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble. It is clear they genuinely love hosting guests. The room was lovely, spotlessly clean and well appointed. Room service was great, made a point of waiting until we had gone out to service the room, much appreciated.

We stayed at this motel for 5 nights and the hospitality was fantastic. Nothing was a problem for Ian and Chris and they always tried to assist in any way they could, including finding motel keys in rooms, setting aside an area for a bbq (and finding us a 2nd bbq) and the list goes on and on. I can honestly say that I have never had better hospitality and we travel a lot with the gym club.

Family of four adults stayed in downstairs corner 2 bedroom unit on the 1/06/2012. This room was away from street front so quiet, very comfortable beds with 1 Queen in one bedroom and 2 singles in the other -these can also be made up into one bed if you want. Everything was lovely and clean, modern looking and warm. Kitchen with good supply of cups etc. One bathroom. Tv in lounge and both bedrooms. Small outside sitting area with chairs/table and a barbecue. Managers friendly and helpful - the lady even cleared our car windows from the ice the morning we left the motel (great service). Good location also.

Room Tip: Two bedroom units are set back from street front - so quieter.

Wow...this was the first time we have stayed in this Motel, and we have rebooked for the following St Clair Half marathon. Our room was spotlessly clean, the heater was on when we arrived late, and the hosts were helpful and welcoming. If only all motel experiences were like this!
