Stayed here for two nights while touring the South Island. The room was clean, and cosy. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom, although dated, was still in good shape. The owners were very friendly, and welcoming. Had some slight noise from the road at night, but around 10pm most of it died off, and we settled in for a... More

Stayed three nights with pleasure. Good bed and bathroom. Rather quiet rooms, no noise from the road in front of the hotel. Lots of movies on the TV. Breakfast has to be ordered the evening before and eaten in your room. I missed the dynamic of eating in a room with other people. Sitting in your room is quiet and... More

We stopped over for one night. Hosts were very welcoming. The two bedroom unit was spacious and well presented. Very thing was in good condition. It was all very clean. Only issue was the unit was close to the very busy main road. We had asked for a quiet unit away from the road but that was not to be.... More

Very comfortable, spacious accommodation. Warm welcome. Good restaurants nearby. Just right for quality and price. It's nice to get a small bottle of milk when you arrive, tea and coffee in the room. We would stay again.

We stayed two nights in a studio spa unit. The unit was clean and tidy. The hosts were welcoming. A very nice place to stay. There is a well equipped kitchenette with most things that you would need. The fittings are modern and the room was nice and warm.

We booked a 2 bedroom suite for our last night in New Zealand. Beautiful suite, very clean and the beds were the best we had on our 10 day trip. The hosts were wonderful and helpful. Wished we could have stayed longer. We also were happy to see on-site laundry and it was free of charge.

We booked this motel at the last minute due to not being able to reach Christchurch in time that day. The owner kindly left the key for us as we were to be arriving so late and put milk in the fridge and wifi codes on the side. The room was lovely with a big bathroom including spa bath (much...

Decided to stay in Ashburton at last minute enroute to Christchurch and luckily found Ashburton Motor Lodge. We were made to feel very welcome by Sally who helped us with directions to our destination in Christchurch. Room was great with comfortable bed and good heating. Meals available in Hotel just a few meters from accommodation.

We booked the 3 bedroom apartment which faced the main highway. The room was well insulated so didn't hear any of the traffic. Beds were so comfortable. Everyone commented about this. Only drawback, minimal furnishings in lounge and very small kitchen, but as we were only there to sleep, I suppose it was okay for the amount of time there.... More
