We have stayed here twice in the last 6 months. Room was well stocked, clean and tidy. The beds are very firm but the unit was quiet and double glazed which certainly keeps the noise out. Close to the shops and Robbies Restaurant was across the road.

We called into this motel on the spur of the moment after cold wet weather camping. It was a welcome relief, clean and comfortable. Only negative thing really was size of shower - a bit small otherwise all good and especially liked how quiet it was

The service was extremely disappointing. My boyfriend accidentally broke the coffee plunger in our room. The plunger was poor quality and the base smashed whilst he was trying to clean it. We tried to the right thing by alerting the owners straight away. Unfortunately they were exceptionally rude toward us and forced us to pay $42(!) for a replacement. If... More

Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay at the Regency Motel. Although the rooms might need some more updating, they were very clean and comfortable. The unit (#2) that I shared with a traveling companion was well appointed and it was great for each of us to have our own room. The hosts were very friendly and... More

Stayed at this motel again this year on the way north from Dunedin. The room was spacious, very clean and well appointed, warm and welcoming. Had a great night's sleep in a very comfortable bed. There are lots of motels in Ashburton and this has to be one of the best. Check it out next time you pass through. You... More

There was no hot water, bed was terrible. Shower had no pressure and only 1 heater for a large room. Owner was incredibly unfriendly and tight. Only received a $10 discount for all this trouble. For $180 a night this was definantly a poor, poor choice. On the plus side the rooms were clean.

The Kiwis are dog lovers, and so are we. The hospitality of the owner was much appreciated following an overnight in Wellington, the FERRY to Picton and a drive to Ashburton as we proceed to our RESORT in Queenstown! First, the much acclaimed WINTER STORM OF A GENERATION is pure media hype! As frequent Colorado, Utah, California, NM, AZ, ...... More

My wife and I stay at the Regency each and every time we visit family in Ashburton. We both love animals, so it was wonderful to have an occasional visit from the owners dog or cat, but I must mention, they never entered our room, they were very well behaved and friendly. Room 11 has been our room 99% of... More

Above my normal business budget however it was a lovely stay. Staff friendly and the room was excellent. Ended up with a 2 bedroom unit as last available. Very spacious and everything was very clean, kitchen very well equiped and bed very comfortable. Pool looked very nice but did not use. I would definately stay again.
