We were on the road and hadn’t booked ahead for the night, and stopped at the Regency because it looked nice and had room. It was a good choice. It’s not your standard tourist motel but appears mostly to cater for travelling tradesmen and truck drivers, although it has a swimming pool and children’s play area. The buildings and décor...

Reasonably clean - but if you are looking for comfort and a warm welcome - better to drive on by. Sadly the same probably applies to Ashburton. So many great places on the South Island - we won't be rushing back

We made a last minute decision to overnight in Ashburton and checked into the Regency. Typical NZ motel but very clean and tidy. Heaters in the living as well as bedroom which was welcome against the cold. Well presented and our only gripe is the shower pressure which is very low. We had a quiet night's sleep which is always... More

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.
