The beds were large and comfortable and the mattress, in particular, seemed to be well-padded. The TV was set up on the wall while the remote was very handy to bed and we could watch the early morning news on the Breakfast show with a cuppa in bed which was quite nice in winter. Staff were friendly in the restaurant... More

The staff is welcoming. The shuttle to town was made available, which was very nice when no car was available. The rooms are large, clean and neat. The hotel seems to be redone. The bar is central, not very much of an ambiance, but plenty of room. The food and service in the restaurant were very good. The servers were... More

We arrived here 11 pm at night. Had driven 5 hours. Arranged room on our trip. On arrival the room was $160 rather than $140, this did get sorted the next morning, however was a hassle at the time. Our room ( 108) smelt of smoke and strongly of cleaning product- perhaps used to remedy the smoke?. I found the... More

This is my second visit and it was just as good as I remember it. There are a good variety of rooms and rates. Always clean and tidy with really friendly staff. A good selection of bar food although they ran out of toasted sandwiches early evening and didn't offer to make one. My favourite thing about this hotel is... More

A few weeks ago we visited the Hotel Ashburton on a Sunday after church, for lunch. The meal was beautifully presented, service was rapid and the taste was wonderful. Definitely worth a visit, and definitely value for money.

I just spent one night at the hotel for a work trip and was happy with the standard of the room and the service from the receptionist on the late night shift.

The room cost $110 but was as desirable as a camping ground cabin. It smelt of cigarette smoke, the bathroom was in its original 1950's fit out, with filthy marks around the cornices of bath and bathroom walls. It was extremely unpleasant and if it wasnt for the fact that we arrived late at night, we would have not stayed... More
