“Good stopover”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

We spent one night here on our way south. The motel is easy to find and our unit was very clean and comfortable, with all the facilities required. The owners are helpful in suggesting places to visit or eat - and there is quite a choice. We slept well and were not disturbed by any traffic noises. Will definitely stay here again if we are back this way.

I wish I could craft a better title for our experience at 171 on High - maybe I've written too many reviews today. Chris and Ian were the perfect hosts for our two day stay. Ian has a well restored Triumph Stag that he was good enough to show - beautifully done, Ian.

The room included a well equipped kitchenette, very comfortable bed, DVD player (free DVDs are available in the office), flat screen TV and wireless Internet (100 MB free). There is some street noise during the day but it is quite quiet at night. The bathroom is spacious and modern. The property is located near one of Blenheim's attractive parks and three blocks from town center. We very much enjoyed our stay with Chris and Ian and highly recommend their accommodations.

We stayed here three nights and the motel was great. Chris and Ian go the extra mile for the guests. They supplied us with maps and suggestions for walks. Our room was comfortable and spotlessly clean. Chris even helped us with our laundry. We highly recommend staying here.

We stayed two nights in this motel and it was great. We arrived at 830am - well before the standard check in time but this wasnt a problem for Ian and Chris. Great friendly service and the rooms were immaculate. Spacious, light and a very comfy bed. Only a 2minute walk into the middle of town, was ideal for what we needed. Would stay again if ever back in Blenheim.

From our arrival until we departed four days later we found Chris & Ian's service to be very friendly and helpful, with nothing a problem. The motel is within a short walk to the town centre and our unit was clean, modern and very comfortable. Even provided my "Boys Toy" with undercover parking. Many thanks Bill & Margaret
