Booked here for an overnight stop on our way south. On our arrival were greeted like long term guests. Couldn't do enough for us. However, after driving from Nelson through Arthur's Pass in really cold conditions the spa bath was to say the least wonderful!! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone.

This wonderful motel is situated on Ashburton's north entrance. It is modern, tastefully decorated and has fantastic hosts! It offered everything I needed: excellently equipped kitchen, a good selection of complimentary tea/coffee, free WiFi, a well appointed bathroom with a spa bath and a nice outdoor courtyard. The Sky TV, electric blankets and genuinely excellent customer service were an added... More

Had an upstairs studio with a spa bath. Attractive decor, comfortable bed and great shower. Had a breakfast delivered - was just right in all respects and mine hosts were friendly welcoming and efficient. Would stay again

Right on the kerbside of SH1, main thoroughfare through town plus railway over the other side too. Thankfully there are not too many trains in NZ but you can hear them from the motel if they happen to pass by. Traffic noise is not huge I guess it depends what you are used to! Free wifi through Zenbu. Large spacious... More

This is at the North end of Ashburton near the racecourse on the side of highway 1. It appears to have been tastefully renovated recently as the rooms had a new feeling to them. Complimentary wifi, big comfortable bath and very comfortable bed made the stay a great one. Very friendly lady greeted me and showed me the room and... More

Good price and good amenities but unfortunately if you're in a room facing the car park or road you will be woken by trucks, trains and sirens. In fairness they do offer earplugs, I found them they weren't offered, but unless you can sleep with earplugs in you are best to just deal with the noise. No double glazing in... More

Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry the noise has spoilt your stay in Ashburton. Our establishment, built approx fourteen years ago, is fitted with hush glass, which is glass with gas pumped between two layers that is tasked to 'quieten' the traffic noise. Unfortunately, without exception, all the motels here are on a main road and all are beside... More

Spent a week here on business. Most pleasant motel with spacious, well appointed units. I was very well looked after and even attended to my fussy pillow needs. Unit serviced exceptionally well each day. Offer amazing breakfasts and very reasonable prices. If stating in ashburton would be very hard to go past this place

We stayed at this motel on our way south in January 2015. We were greeted at reception by a very helpful lady who showed us to our room and provided milk for our tea/coffee. The room had a full range of facilities and was really clean and tidy. First impressions were that it could be a little noisy as it... More
