A mixed bag – positives being an acceptable location; an A list of facilities; a spacious and comfortable, upper level suite (room 12); welcoming and efficient staff whilst the negatives were a room on a main, busy road; a door facing west and unseasonably hot weather. A room on the ground floor would have been unbearable in this weather. Free...

We stayed here after a wine tasting tour in Blenheim. It was the perfect location for our tour to pick us up and drop us off. It's very close to town to be able to walk or take a short drive to find dining or a grocery store. The room was well equipped with a kitchenette that included a microwave,...

Donna was particularly welcoming, kind and helpful during our 3 night stay and showed a genuine interest in our daily excursions as well as providing helpful information on what to do and where to go. Our room was spotlessly clean and well equipped including kitchen equipment, sofa, dining table and chairs if we decided to eat in rather than sample...

Room was nice and clean, bed comfy, staff friendly and easy 5 min walk to town.The Marlborough Club is a nice place to go for a drink/meal. Also handy to walks along the river which are nice walks both up and down the river.

During the busy Marlborough Wine and Food Festival I stayed at this busy and very friendly motel near the centre of Blenheim. The clean condition of the rooms and willingness to provide extra services ( like a fan ) was done with great willingness and efficiency. Communication is a strong point here and thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated - you have...

The room we had was small ground floor room, immaculately clean and nice and quiet. Great shower, comfy bed, easy parking and just 5 mins walk from anything in Blenheim town centre. Would definitely stay here again.

171 On High Motel is on High Street in Blenheim. It is close to the road, so there is some traffic noise. The room was well appointed and reasonably priced. A fridge and microwave are in the room as well as a flat screen TV. The WiFi was a bit difficult to load but works well once installed. There are...

This place is not so bad. Its clean and comfortable and has sufficient space. However, as a function of location there were a couple of noisy times during the night as a function of rampaging loud locals and a couple of guests returning in a merry state. Also we had requested a king bed, which was a motel option, but...
