This accommodation was clean and tidy. A welcoming greeting from the owners was good. The room had cooking facilities which is handy. The heater was on thankyou as it was a cold day in Ashburton Would recommend to travellers and business people having to stop in Ashburton.

Nice clean spot with large rooms, decent price point, easy laundry facilities (washing free, drying $4 charge), and friendly service. The bathroom had both a shower and a spa tub, which was exactly what we needed after a long cold, rainy day in the car. Great for traveling with a baby, as we could have the cot in one room... More
