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

I stayed here for 5 days while visiting friends. The hotel is a clean, quiet, and conveniently located. The breakfasts (I had the full buffet each day) were abundant and tasty. The staff were exceptional -- they are what earned my 5-star rating. They went out of their way to make us comfortable, give good suggestions, make sure we got... More

We really enjoyed staying at this hotel - I wish we could have stayed more than one night - but we were with a bus trip and had to move along. The meals were great, the bar and the service were fantastic! The rooms were clean, nice smelling, with in-room wifi (YAY), and comfy beds. Great location with a lovely... More

We stayed at this hotel as part of a tour of New Zealand. It is a very clean, tidy and well run establishment. The buffet meal was very good, room was huge, absolutely no complaints. Would have liked to stay a little longer!

This was a nice little hotel off the main road and the employees were all very nice (it is New Zealand of course - they all are!). The hotel was clean, the rooms were clean, though the room was tiny. There was barely enough space for one suitcase on the floor. That being said, it was very cute, even if... More

We chose this hotel because we had difficulty finding reasonably priced accommodation in Christchurch. So glad we did. Can't believe the quality for the price paid. Great service. Nice swimming pool for a dip at the end of a hot day. Manager even found floats etc. for us to play with! Lovely gardens and pond for a little stroll. Free... More

I was expecting therefore a noisy night but was pleasantly surprised to hear no traffic noise or... More
