We stay at Ashburton Motor Lodge during the week just for one night. Owners very nice and friendly, however the traffic noise during the night was too much for us. We found earplugs in the bedside table early in the morning bit later though, wish we know about them before. Lovely and warm unit, well appointed

This motel is right on edge of the small town of Ashburton (about 20,000 people?) but that is only five minutes drive from the centre (and only two minutes walk to a large tavern. It was rather pricey (more what you would expect to pay for a big city motel). It was beautifully clean, had excellent heating (essential when the... More

We had a 3 night stay here and really enjoyed it. Beautiful rooms and comfortable bedding. Heater was turned on prior to our evening arrival. The accessories supplied made it feel like home. Very helpful owners and friendly room service.

Immaculate motel with great facilities. Very nice and helpful lady in reception. Nice spa bath in our room. Laundry room helpful for people on the move. The negative is the traffic from the very busy road outside but tends to dwindle in the evening, hence the ear plugs in the bedside table.

We were greeted by the lovely Sally upon arrival. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit and found it perfect for what we needed. Nothing was too much bother for Sally. The room was very spacious and exceptionally clean. We would definately recommend this motel to travellers.

I stayed in a room situated right near the main highway, and although I was so close to the busy highway there was not much noise from the road. My room had a Jacuzzi which was spectacular. This is an affordable lodge, with lovely staff. I would recommend this lodge to anyone who wants to stay in a nice place... More

My friend and I stopped here for one night whilst on the way to Oamaru. We were made to feel welcome on arrival, the studio with spa bath was clean and comfortable. There was a couple of places very close by where you could eat/drink and many more a couple of minutes drive up the road. I would definitely recommend... More
