The motel is out of a different age the room was very dark and the bedroom very small. We had a very small toilet at one end and... More

Stayed for one night. Check-in was fairly quick, room was clean but small. However, our room was located on the second floor and there were no lifts. We had to carry our luggages up a flight of stairs to our room. Wifi was available but connection was unstable. Toilet was small - similar to Japan toilet! As the motel was... More

This was the studio unit which we do not advertise on-line but keep available for when accommodation in Timaru is at a peak. At the time when someone enquires about a room I explained that I only have a studio unit with a king size bed, ensuite and tea and coffee making facilities available - that is exactly the room...

Not a 4 star motel. Security issues with loud, aggressive and drunk guests who drank outside our door. We felt very unsafe staying there despite it being recommended through QANTAS hotels. QANTAS hotels offered a refund but all we wanted was safety and a quite night. Be careful, fellow travellers. It was a very disappointing experience when arriving from Australia.

Stayed one night with our 1 year old. Room was very clean and very spacious for the price paid. Even though motel is located on the main road we didn't notice any traffic noise. shower and toilet was very small but was fine for 1 night.

We spent a night at Ashbury Park Motel between travelling from Christchurch to Queenstown. The room was spacious, clean + comfortable. The staff were friendly, tv was great, free wifi was a bonus, and there was very little road noise considering we were on a main road. Would happily return!

My wife and I were passing through Timaru and booked into Ashbury Park for the night. The hosts were great and very friendly and gave us some great information on a couple of places my wife wanted to check out. The rooms were very clean and tidy and the shower far better than some of the expensive places we stayed.... More

over the last 4 months stayed at 2 other motels and an apartment in Timaru . None of them come close to the Asbury Park, I've told my HR team reluctant to stay elsewhere. No wonder the no vacancy sign is always out. Thanks again Frank

Although our stay at Ashbury Park was only a one night stopover, the hospitality shown by the owners makes me want to go back to NZ! It was the only place in NZ where we got help with our luggage PLUS the owner wiped the back window of our car on the cold morning when we checked out! We had... More

Stayed on a number off occasions in 2014 for work .rooms we're clean well maintained. And the hosts couldn't do enough for me to the point of doing my washing for me while doing long hours at the work. Even put my warm beers in the fridge for me. Kiwi hospitality at its best. Free wi fi was magic other... More
