Excellent place to stay. Nothing was to much trouble even provided bucket and cleaning materials when car was very dirty, suggested scenic drive that was excellent in providing great pictures and memories.

The unit was excellent, with everything we could have asked for, including high-speed internet. The beds were comfortable and the shower was hot. We had great service from the staff too, thanks for a great stay!

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 arrived early afternoon and we were greeted by the manager Donna who suggested that if we would like some lunch we could try one of the vine yards. She rang and got us a last minute table at wither hill. So off to lunch. Unbelievable food and atmosphere. We found out that William & Kate’s royal Visit to New...
