A well-located, clean and comfortable motel. Everything one could ask for. We appreciated being able to check in just after midday as this allowed us plenty of time to visit Yealands Winery, which promotes its environmental credentials (along with its wines) and is well worth the trip. Being within easy walking distance of Blenheim's city centre we had ample restaurants...

We needed a good motel ahead of our journey round the South Island folowing the ferry crossing and this place ticked all the boxes. Blenheim is a lovely town, thanks to Donna & Paul for making our stay enjoyable, if only we'd had more time to sample the extensive wines from the region. One tip, if you need a hearty...

We arrived late evening in Blenheim after a 7 hour drive. What a pleasant experience to have Donna welcome us, give us a great recommendation for a reasonably priced fab restaurant at Alan Scotts Winery and some local places to visit. Donna even came up with some bread so we could have toast the following morning. Oh and the room...

One of the nicest motel rooms I've ever been in - decor and amenities. After a few days at Scout Jamboree I was ready for a bit of peace and calm! Donna was extremely friendly and helpful and I was treated like one of the family. Truly appreciated! I'll definitely be back to visit 171 on High!

We had a lovely stay at 171 on High Motel in Blenheim. Donna was very warm, gracious and helpful, awaiting our late arrival on Christmas day and answering many questions ahead of time as we finetuned our plans. The room was perfectly comfortable for our family of four, we greatly appreciated the fresh milk in the refrigerator, and the laundry...
