Bright and airy accommodation. A family run small motel - very friendly receptionist with good advice as to where to eat and drink. It has the added bonus of children's play area and a small swimming pool with free towels available.

Staying at Taylors Motel for 2 nights was great! The owners are friendly and welcoming. They offered us tea right and coffee as we arrived and recommended an excellent local Japanese restaurant for dinner that night. The room had been cleaned immaculately and the king size bed was very comfortable. We had Sky TV so we were able to watch... More

Privately owned motel, which is excellent value for money. We were checked-in by Craig who was very helpful taking time to point local eaters and other places on the map. Our room was upgraded to one with an extra bedroom. Location is a little out of town but its only a short walk across the other side of the railway... More

This was our second stay at Taylor's. The staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are warm and very clean. Rooms were quiet allowing for a sleepin after a late flight arrival the night before into Christchurch. I would recommend this motel highly.

Stayed at Taylors for 2 nights when in Ashburton for work. Took shuttle from Christchurch Airport and when I arrived the receptionist helped with my extra bag and knew who I was which was a nice touch. They explained how they normally give you a coffee on arrival but their machine was away for repairs, understandable and didn't really want... More

We pulled into Taylors to be greeted by their friendly staff, and also pleasantly surprised to find our room had been upgraded at no extra cost. For our comfort, the heater was already on and we could happily relax in our pre-heated room which was especially nice after a big day of hiking and driving. The room was spacious, and... More

Fresh off the plane from Sydney and heading to Queenstown we decided to have an overnight stop at Ashburton and booked the Taylors based upon reviews. Wise idea all around..... By heading out of Christchurch on our way to Queenstown, we were an hour or so ahead on our journey and Ashbuton was a fine place to stop. Likewise, Taylors... More
