We used this as a journey break on our way south from Nelson on a Sunday night. The unit was clean and comfortable with good cooking facilities. The motel advised Wi-Fi on the road entrance sign and also inside the office. However later we found out that there was no Wi-Fi. We were told that their server had broken down... More

Thanks for your feed back. Our Wi-Fi server went down late Friday and could not get our IT man until Tuesday. We now have a computer in the office, with Skype, for guests to use, in case of this ever happening again. Wi - Fi is free for our clients. More

They were very nice and put the heating on for us etc but I felt it was a bit expensive for what we got. We paid $120 for a unit that was pretty basic, but it was clean just old fashioned. I was a bit mislead by the other reviews on here. I would have been happy paying $80 or... More

We had to cancel and then rebook at short notice due to a change in the weather. This wasn't an issue and Sally and Max were very flexible. The units were in excellent condition, warm and clean, couldn't ask for more. Off street parking was good - I had a tandem trailer which was easily stored. Definitely recommend this accommodation.

Recently we stayed in Rangiora for a weekend at the Rangiora Lodge Motel. The units were lovely and clean and warm, and serviced daily. We even came home late at night to find heating turned on and curtains closed. A lovely homely touch! Sally and Max were very friendly and helpful, making us feel as if we were at home.

We recently stayed at this motel, its well placed in Rangiora, was spotlessly clean and our hosts were wonderful, went the extra mile and made us feel at home. I would highly recommend this motel.
