We stayed overnight here and how beautiful it is. We were in an upstairs studio which was immaculate, spacious, beautiful decor, wonderfully comfortable queen bed, nice relaxing chairs, very spacious bathroom, nice kitchen. It has a lovely little bbq area with table and chairs, nice for eating there at any time. Also had a table & chairs outside our unit.... More

Yes, it is about 50 km out of town. It is also peaceful, layback if you wish, friendly community. The Darfield Motel fit us perfectly as we perfectly. We are transiting west coast to east coast requiring a convenient place to stop.. Darfield and this Motel were ideal. There was great help from the owners to get laundry done and... More

The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. I only stayed for one night, would have liked to stay longer to make full use of the facilities. Really couldn't fault this place. I will... More

We stayed here for one night recently on our way to Mt Hutt. The motel unit (2 bedroom) was lovely. Modern, clean, tidy and warm. The owners were friendly and helpful, as we were late to check in, they had it all sorted on our arrival. The motels are conveniently located between Chch and Mt Hutt. We were very impressed...

We booked to stay at Darfield Motel 'sight-unseen', and hadn't expected such a lovely motel in a small town. We were delighted with our choice - our unit was clean and very comfortable with excellent facilities, and very quiet, despite being close to the main highway and the town. Janine even offered to help carry our bags upstairs to our... More

We stopped here after a long drive from Te Anau. We got a friendly welcome at reception and were given a clean, bright, and comfortable room for the night. Our one negative comment is that the fan in the bathroom is completely inadequate. One steps out of the shower into a room completely foggy and steamed up. In fact, this... More

We stayed here on New Years Eve, as we had a wedding to go to nearby. We were basically just after somewhere close to the wedding to stay the night – but we were pleasantly surprised with this motel.
