There were very good, clean facilities. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. There is also a good and clear emphasis upon ecological/environmental issues regarding the stay in the motel. I had a glitch with my wi-fi access. This was resolved very quickly by the staff.

We were greeted by the owners who were friendly and informative. They suggested a place to eat. We had a comfortable night in a well equipped room and lovely coffee. Would recommend this for a tired traveller.

I have had the pleasure of enjoying the most comfortable units away from home. Everything is immaculate, and detail and warmth within the units, and friendliness of the owners is outstanding...... Which Is why I shall return happily with no questions asked. 10/10. :)

I recently stayed here on a business trip. The room was spotless and very well equipped. Ian was super friendly and accommodating, he went over and above to help me with a late check out. I very rarely write reviews, but this motel deserves it!

We love staying at 171 on High. Ian and Chris are delightful hosts who go the extra mile to make us feel welcome. This motel is always spotless- I think the cleanest motel in NZ. It is extremely well equipped- everything we could have possibly needed in the wee kitchen. We always choose to stay here if in Blenheim.
