Was in Ashburton for a week for our daughters netball tournament. We were there with other team families who had booked to stay at the hotel as well. Checked in at reception met by Murray Powell and his Scottish terrier. No pleasantries or welcome-was asked if I wanted the complimentary milk. Tues was even hotter and temperatures reached up to...

Hard small bed, hard pillows. Slow, spasmodic, wifi very frustrating if you are trying to do business communication. Pokey, cold space. Couch in lounge has springs poking in places they shouldn't! Very disappointing. Manager was sniffy when we told him we were checking out early because room was uncomfortable!

Stopped here for one night on the way back from Te Anau to Christchurch. Check in was fast and easy and parking was great. Rooms were very clean, beds comfortable, and kitchen facilities more than adequate for the short stay. The shower whilst being a little on the small side was excellent with great water pressure and long lasting hot... More

We stopped at the Regency for 25 nights whilst in Ashburton visiting family. We have two children (10 and 6). Murray and Katharine were very welcoming and made us feel at home. We had a two bedroom unit for our stay and it was comfortable and immaculately clean. The beds were comfy, the shower was perfect and there was everything... More

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
