I stayed at Hotel Ashburton twice in one week, I can not say how welcoming everyone is and nothing is a problem. Even getting boiling water. Restaurant, rooms, everything was wonderful. I recommend anyone to stay here.

Have stayed here a number of time and will when ever business calls for a stay over in Ashburton. Staff are friendly and helpfull. The rooms have been updated which is great and the bar was a nice place to have a late drink after a long day.

We had a lovely stay. Expecting not a lot the rooms were lovely. The night we arrived it was freezing and the room was all heated. It has been nicely refurbished and really comfy beds. Great to have everything there so you don't need to leave when it is bitterly cold. Only thing that could have been improved was a... More

Although public areas have been upgraded the rooms are looking very tired and sorely in need of an upgrade. Overall a bit dissapointed We were there for the races so location was the key. Enjoyed our meal

Stayed at here last weekend for a conference. The facility is well suited for this. The food was excellent adn the staff helpful. Some rooms are a bit older and probably haven't had the upgrade of others, but still comfortable. Lovely garden setting and very quiet.

Wasn't sure if I should write a review or not but I felt others should know. This is more a Motel with Hotel prices. Meals are always dry and bland and I've also been to weddings here that have been double booked on more than one occasion. All in all rooms are very old and they are trying to charge... More

Stayed here for 1 night enroute from Mt Cook to Kaikoura. The room was spacious, clean and had a nice outlook, but the decor and furnishings were VERY tired and dated and the beds were very squidgy - I was so relieved there were 2 because we needed them to get any sleep. The guest laundry was very useful and... More

This was a return visit for us and we were not disappointed. Hotel Ashburton is well worth a visit just to see the gardens - it is understandable that the hotel is a great venue for weddings and large conferences. The friendly welcome we received when we arrived was a great start to our visit. We stayed in a superior... More
