Room was spacious, well presented and very clean; could not have wanted anything more, Bed was very comfortable and our hosts welcoming and friendly. Advice was given on good places to eat and shop and they were just what we wanted.

Very well situated in Darfiled, super quiet. Extremely clean and well appointed. The owners were very helpful and pleasant. I would highly recommend this motel to anyone looking to stay in this central location. While you are in Darfield you must visit the local bakery and buy a pie!!!

We stayed here on the 6th Jan as we were heading back to GB on the 7th and this motel was not only perfect for the 30min journey back to Christchurch airport but our son had stayed in Darfield for work when he arrived in NZ in 2013 and had said we should visit this lovely place. We were delighted... More

We arrived here in the afternoon and it took a couple of minutes for someone to come and check us in, but was no bother. We were quickly shown to our apartment, which was clean, comfy and nicely furnished. We had tea and coffee facilities and slept well in the comfy bed. There was a decent restaurant just over the...

Everything in the room was new, clean and good quality. The standard was far higher than we expected for a motel. The manager was really friendly and helpful. One clarification, we had a "spa room" which had a large bath with jacuzzi jets (not a hot tub), this was really good, but a hot tub would have been even better!

Darfield Motel is well maintained, well equipped, clean, cosy and comfortable. We stopped one night on our way between east and west, and we did not regret it at all. Dargield Motel is a highly recommended place to take a break.

We had a quiet upstairs room which was spotless and had all you need including free wifi. The owners are very helpful and there is a good restaurant a few minutes walk away. The motel is on the main road but we were not troubled at all by road noise. Breakfasts can be had at the Darfield bakery which is... More

On the way to Arthur Pass our group want to spend the whole day at Christchurch but want a nice quiet decent sleep closer to Arthur Pass, so we decided to stop and stay at Darfield, some 45-50km away from Christchurch. A bit late arrival, after 8pm we called the motel first after entering Darfield to get guidance how to... More
