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... More

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. The room was new, spacious and very nice – from the large screen TV on the wall, modern fittings including a... More

This was recommended by a friend and what a great Motel this place is. Not a lot of money at all, but fantastic service. Good sized room - we even had our own BBQ! Much better than some of the hotels we stayed at at more than half the price! WiFi worked well - they have a generous free allowance.... More

My wife was suffering the stresses of putting up with Teenage drama and so I decided to take her away for a night and pamper her and have her relax and enjoy the peace. Motel Management were a lovely couple and awesome hosts. Nest time my wife is looking for a break we will be back for sure.

We found the motel to be an very good choice. Having crossed Arthur's pass we found the town of Darfield and this motel. The facilities were all there with a fully equipped kitchen, large bed plus a good size shower. The on site laundry was well equipped with washing machines and dryers. With ample off road parking. It was close... More

We were walk-ups, but had picked the place from the AA book. Friendly hosts. Had a very nice king room, Room was in a newer building with full kitchen. The place had one of those new style tub/shower with only half glass door and was a little hard to keep water off of floor.

I have had at least 8 months staying with these guys over the last 2 years and they helped make it bearable by providing extra cooking facilities, storing equipment and food when I wasn't there and moving my washing around to get it dry. We had snow, wind and trains. Train noise is reduced with the new units sheltering the... More
