During an 8 week tour of New Zealand we stayed at quite a few motels, all researched beforehand, and all of which proved to be generally very good especially value wise. Taylors Motel topped the lot - exceptionally helpful, friendly, informative and cheerful owners and staff. very comfortable beds with good quality linen, well equipped kitchen, clean and quiet room....

Extremely friendly and helpful staff, spacious room and comfortable bed, all facilities travelers would expect in a first-class facility. Anyone planning to start a motel business should spend a couple of nights here to learn a professional approach. We will be back for sure!

Very friendly and welcoming place. Rooms are very clean and far from dated like a lot of places we have stayed in. Will definitely be staying here when ever we need to stay in ashburton. The only thing I could say is have the TV set so you can turn it on as we are not sky savvy so took... More

Arrived here late in day after realising we weren't going to make it much further for the first night of our honeymoon. Only had 2 bedroom units available, but gave us a reduced rate for the two of us. Wonderful, friendly service and a beautifully clean unit with everything we needed.

We had just spent 15 straight hours riding around the South Island. This very comfortable motel was a welcoming rest stop. We booked a room each. I advised the owners that we wouldn't be arriving until around midnight and they were very accommodating. Nothing was a problem. It is very easy to find but also away from the main highway... More

After staying in two backpacker-type accommodation, I was happy to arrive at the motel. As with many other NZ motels, Taylors was convenient and had everything you would need for a short stay right in the comfort of your own room. We appreciated the microwave and other amenities in the kitchen. Space was okay - quite enough room to open... More

This was our first stop after arriving in New Zealand. We were exhausted and happy to be in sight of a bed. Pleasantly surprised at the size of the room and it seemed very clean. Nothing fancy but we weren't expecting that. Other people have mentioned noisiness from the road but I guess we were tired enough that it didn't... More

We had a small unit - last awaiting revamp but it was extremely clean and had all we required for just an overnight stay. Hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. Sadly the nature of Ashburton is the train rolls thru the centre of town so I imagine it would be difficult to escape that. Lovely grounds would visit again most... More

Landing in Christchurch on the dreaded midnight flight but living 4 hours drive away I looked for accommodation 'on the way home' and found this gem. Room 12 is tiny - one single bed - but yes a tiny bathroom to match - AND a TV, fridge, kettle etc - priced to cheer all of you forced to pay for... More

This was a last minute, actually desperate, attempt to secure some accommodation on our journey up the East Coast. How lucky were we. This proved to be an excellent location. Clean and very well equipped, we spent a very comfortable night. This was after a very warm welcome during which we were shown to our room and offered our choice... More
