Denton Park Motel is lovely, clean and the staff are welcoming. We were lucky enough to be in a room with what appeared to be a super king bed (after being in other accommodation which had beds with roll together etc, for 5 previous nights) this was a bit of luxury we needed. The only thing that i couldnt get... More

Nothing beats coming to a place where the staff are very friendly, the room nice and clean and the bed comfortable - after you have been traveling and/or working all day. The motel is also situated in a perfect area - close to shops and supermarkets. I will definitely stay again if I am ever in Hornby again!

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.

Hi Sally. Thanks for those kind words. Yes we are on State Hwy One but the units are quite surprising to guests as far as being quiet goes. Regards, Shona and Blair. More

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
