I stayed at Denton Park Motel, as it was the nearest motel to a Modern Jive dance competition held nearby at the Hornby Working Mens Club. The one bedroom suite was very modern, impeccably clean, and good value. The customer service by phone when I made (and later altered) my booking was excellent. The unit was quiet for sleep, and...

Arrived lunch time Friday, room was immaculate and welcoming. Staff are very helpful and friendly. The room had a small kitchen if you wanted to cook but why would you when there is so much choice so close? Will definitely be coming back

Enjoyed my stay here. My unit was spotlessly clean, nice large rooms, friendly staff, quiet, good size TV. Continental breakfast option available (pay by individual item) was a great idea and good value ... or McDonalds/McCafe is a two minute walk up the road. Everything I needed!

Driving from Dunedin this motel was on my route to the airport. Warm welcome and excellent unit. I was a little worried as the unit was right on the main road but it was amazingly quiet. Unit was well equipped and the bed was really excellent. Only one little moan...........the toilet paper. Not a cheap motel so really didn't expect... More

We had arrived in Christchurch with no pre booking and preferred something in the Hornby region. Liked the location and appearance and luckily got last available room. Cannot fault any aspect of motel

Great location for us since we were aiming for Hornby. Blair was a fabulous host, very friendly. Room surprisingly quiet since it was next to the main road. Very clean, good sized room and bathroom. Kitchen well equipped.

Spent three restful nights at the motel and from day one was presently surprised at how quiet it was even though the Main South Rd runs right past. Very helpful owners and the well appointed room was kept spick and span for me the whole time. No concerns at all. 300 meters from The Hub shopping centre in Hornby. A... More

Denton Park is my usual overnight accommodation choice when flying into Christchurch & traveling south on business. The units are very spacious & clean & Blair is a very welcoming host. The motel is well located for dining options for a business traveler such as myself & Snafu bar is just round the corner. Unlimited wifi is great too. My... More
