Nice new motel in Geraldine. Free Wifi. Very clean and tidy. Spacious rooms and within walking distance to town. The most comfortable beds and pillows we have experienced in a long time. We had a back unit not sure if a front unit would be noisy thought as Geraldine isn't a very busy place.

Geraldine is an easy drive from Christchurch Airport at the start of our South Island trip. This motel was fairly new, everything was clean and beds really comfortable, and the managers were very helpful. There was no noise at night. Would definitely stay here again. Its a short walk to some nearby cafes for breakfast, and also an easy walk... More

We had the large studio room (14) which was clean, freshly decorated and very spacious with room for both a double and single beds. Located on the edge of the town - just 5 minutes along the road and about 1 hour from Lake Tekapo. I recommend speaking direct to the friendly owners for the best prices. We ate at... More

We were pleased to arrive at this newish motel after a day on the road - welcoming manager, milk in a glass bottle. Our two room unit was clean and adequate, with cooking facilities if we'd chosen to use them.

We stopped at the Asure Motor Lodge on our way from Christchurch airport to Queenstown. The motel is not salubrious but the managers are extremely helpful and the rooms beautifully clean. Wifi is free and the beds very comfortable. What more can one ask for!

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...

Greetings, Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. I am sorry that the bed was not to your liking. It is a quality hospitality mattress, and everyone has their own mattress preference.

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.

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.

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
