“Great Marlborough motel stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Spent an excellent two nights here while exploring the wine estates. Rooms are boutique style, very clean and comfortable. Ian and Chris are super nice and friendly owners who are always looking out for their guests and also happy to give great pointers of where to go and what to do in the region. The motel also has a really good laundry and the dvd player / free dvds were an added bonus.

This motel is very well furnished with well appointed kitchen and bathroom facilities and a sense of home away from home. Family members and I stayed there recently and because of unforeseen family circumstances in Blenheim had to change our room requirements at last minute which was no problem to the friendly and helpful owners Ian & Chris. We have stayed there before and found it very central, quiet and comfortable and will definitely stay there again.

Great place to stay. Third time there now and everytime it's perfect. What I like as a traveling Sales Manager is the needs of the customer are taken care of. The power points are available and in the right places,lighting over the table is great,table is a good size,great TV size, solid big rooms which have been well thought out. Both bathroom and kitchenette are excellent to use and well equiped. Plently of big towels!! Hosts Ian and Chris are the best, nothing like being greeted by your name when you pull in after a long day on the road. A great stay and will be back.

Lovely place to stay. We had three rooms - accommodated us all well. Pillows a bit hard for my liking but that is a personal preference. Ian and Chris were very friendly and helpful. Would definatley stay again.

Have just stayed here for 2 nights. The rooms are lovely, very clean and comfortable. The kitchenette has everything you need to cook your own meals and is very modern. The bathroom is fabulous, plenty of towels and top quality soaps etc. The location is excellent, very close to town and the Taylor river walkway. The owners Ian and Chris are very helpful and welcoming. Will definitely stay here again

In my line of work I stay at many varied establishments. Its important to me that everything is modern, clean and well maintained. Another important factor is that the enviroment is a welcoming friendly one. Ian and Chris do just that making each stay easy, pleasent and enjoyable. I have also stayed with a group on my recomendation and had nothing but compliments on the motel. I would without reservation recommend that anyone 171 On High as a place to stay.
