“Great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

We booked this motel for a one night stay in Ashburton for our son's wedding at Longbeach. Several other family members stayed 2 nights and longer. All the rooms were very clean, comfortable and well equipped. Rebecca made me a Flat White not long after we arrived - very much appreciated. There is a restaurant close by and it is only a short walk into the shops.

We were warmly welcomed and made to feel very comfy. The room was immaculately clean and we appreciated the access to wifi which had been so limited in other hotels in the South Island. A bonus was 10% discount on drinks and food at the hotel across the road? We had a lovely stay.

We stayed here after we were passing through one evening and decided to stop as a storm was coming in (in fact, Taylor's was recommended to us by another local motel, which was full). We had a very comfortable stay - our room was very spacious, clean and well equipped. Free WiFi was a bonus. Craig and Rebecca were very welcoming and accommodating hosts who clearly take great pride in their motel. We only stayed one night but would have loved to have stayed longer!

Taylor's motel was extremely clean and comfortable and had everything we would ever have needed, right down to egg cups and scissors! Craig and Rebecca's attention to detail is 100%. The best thing was the king size bed - luxury.

Very comfortable for a travelling family of four. Our room was well appointed and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Close to local shops and services. We would actually have liked to stay longer to explore the area but time and itineraries dictated otherwise.

Thank you for your review. We do have a lovely town. Everything is reasonably close from Hot Air Ballooning to jetboating or even nice walkways. A nice place to bring up our children. Thanks Bex

All we needed for our overnight stay. Clean, well equipped, very comfortable and quiet. Craig was very welcoming with a just needed latte on arrival. The cost was reasonable with complimentary wifi. Well done.

Craig and Rebecca had been wonderful hosts who were very welcoming and helpful, so were the rest of their team. All of them made us feel very much at home.

Our 5-week stay was very comfortable! Clean, well maintained, relatively spacious and warm rooms (was winter then). Just like in the photos, a furnished apartment with everything you need (even an oven in the kitchen). WiFi is free, though it would have been nicer if it was unlimited.

Overall, a great place to stay with 5-star service! Thank you guys =)
