This motel doesn't seem as if it's very old. We were in room one, which is kitted out as a disabled apartment (although some of the cupboards would be too high if you're in a wheelchair) and the bed was way too soft - not sure if this is related to the disabled status of the room or not (I...

We revisited the town of Geraldine 2 days ago, still as lovely as it was 22 years ago. Our stay at the assure Scenic Motor Lodge was the icing on the cake. We had a lovely room, very well appointed and immaculate. Ours hosts Bren and Lynne were lovely, very chatty. Misty the cat also made us welcome.

Was refurbished in bathroom. Beds dull colour but nice and clean and fresh. Lounge a little dull but excellent position to walk into town. Very friendly reception. Would stay again. Better than I expected.

We stayed for three nights in Geraldine and despite arriving at around midnight they had arranged everything for us. Very close to town, which was beautiful. Really welcoming and friendly- the only fault was a grubby iron! However the manager swapped it for his own one.

Terrace28, Owner at ASURE Scenic Route Motor Lodge, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the time to write a revew. We do apologise for the iron - unfortunately sometimes the irons are turned on high, and left at a very high temperature for a long period, and the ironing plate darkens. We have reviewed all the irons and replaced some irons since your visit. We are pleased to work with... More

This is a marvellous motel in a quiet town with surprisingly lots to offer. The manager was very friendly, and we were pleased to find our room had been upgraded to a king plus single (due to a change-around with other guest's rooms). The rooms are very modern and clean, with plenty of facilities in the kitchen. I was particularly... More

Stayed here as a couple with friends at the end of December 2014. Found place easily as it is immediately before village centre when approaching from Christchurch towards Queenstown.
