This was a one night stop to break our journey from Dunedin to Kaikoura. On the highway, but a bit of a way to Ashburton proper this is an ideal spot for a one nighter. There is a large hotel just around the corner for food and bottle shop needs. We did not eat there but, certainly, used the bottle... More

Units are modern, spotless and certainly could find no fault with them, it's right by the main highway to Christchurch so is prone to a bit of traffic noise, though certainly nothing overly annoying. It's on the outskirts of town so a little far to walk to the shops but by car it's 5 minutes to the centre of town.

Set in a convenient location easy to find, out of a city, yet relatively close to urban places such as Ashburton and Geraldine. Good standard of accommodation. Clean and tidy. Friendly staff. Comfortable and convenient place to eat, watch a wide range of TV stations, park at, and meet other guests. Good sized, well aired rooms. This is a well... More

We stayed for 2 nights whilst attending a friend's wedding in Geraldine (40 minutes away). We chose this motel because there was no accommodation available in Geraldine over that weekend and we were impressed with the quality of the accommodation, the price and the location to Geraldine. Upon check in we were greeted in a very friendly manner. The owner... More

Great place to stay although a wee bit out of town it was worth the distance. If your going to the races it is the perfect spot. Very clean and tidy, absolutely excellent shower, although they are new owners they certainly were very friendly and welcoming. It was great being able to sit outside in the sun for breakfast.

I have stayed at this motel on several occasions. Found the staff to be welcoming and professional. I was a later arrival on a cold evening. The room was warm on my arrival. The room was roomy, tidy and functional. Very pleasing to note the full range of sky TV channels (I like the sport channels and the motel has... More

Stayed for one night on Saturday 17th may for my Dads 80th birthday. Very easy to find as its on the main road. Very well priced as we got a two bed roomed apartment for two adults and two children for $160. Others motels in Ashburton were charging closer to $200. Rooms very large and had everything we needed.
