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

First stay at Hotel Ashburton - 3.5star - up to current quake standards - late afternoon arrival - efficient check-in - room must have been cleaned in a hurry as small rubbish on floor from previous guests - fridge not quite up to scratch either - small electrical/lighting prob - otherwise clean hotel room - also opening outside doors to...

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

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.

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!
