We found the motel to be an very good choice. Having crossed Arthur's pass we found the town of Darfield and this motel. The facilities were all there with a fully equipped kitchen, large bed plus a good size shower.
The on site laundry was well equipped with washing machines and dryers. With ample off road parking. It was close to Christchurch only about 30 mins away with a lot of other small and interesting towns around. We found it to be and ideal hub to explore the area. The management were polite and very helpful. I would say it would be a good choice for all.
