We stayed for a night on the way to Mount Cook. Friendly owner, just around 100m to city center, a very small yet lovely town. Nice comfortable bed, well heated room and bathroom. They have 2 big cats, which adds dynamic to our stay. Kitchen utensils are complete and of high quality. Flat screen TV and there were also ample... More

We stayed in a 2-bedroom apartment of approximately 70 sq metres. The 3-star Motor Inn is located just off Highway 79 at the northern part of Geraldine. Friendly and helpful folks at the reception counter. Free wifi and free parking. The units are located around the parking area. Basic furnishing and equipment, including a full kitchen. Comfortable and clean apartment.... More

We were expecting to stay overnight in Timaru but once again we found a town that did not live up to the expectations and views that we required, so setting the GPS, we headed across land to the township of Geraldine that had caught our attention whilst driving from Christchurch to Queenstown. The Asure Scenic Route Motor Lodge is the... More

There was parking space for our car to be parked right outside our unit which was very convenient. The toilet was clean with strong shower and heater in the toilet. Kitchen was clean with all facilities available and the bed was huge and comfortable! There is also a very pretty and quaint cafe nearby. To sum it up, a very... More

Excellent motel, very clean and well equipped, friendly and helpful hosts. Close to the shops and restaurants, but at the same time quiet. Units boast aircon/heat pumps and all have good kitchen facilities, good laundry available. We only stayed one night on our journey South, not a lot to do in the town for a short stopover, but the museum... More

We stayed only 1 night, but found the Dutch couple managing it really helpful and very friendly. The rooms were a good size, perfect for fitting in 2adults & 3 kids (3single beds) so no arguments over top bunks, etc.... Easy walking distance into town. It is right on the main road, which does transmit some sound (as our room... More

A very comfortable motel. The room was clean, spacious and had a nice kitchenette. We found this accommodation to suit our needs. The parking was a little tight and initially there were no car parks near our room. We were able to move our car closer later in the evening. We had planned an early start to the following day...

Looking at the drive down from the Tasman Peninsula / Nelson to Wanaka, with an obligatory day at Aoraki along the way, we decided to target Geraldine for a stop over. It's a lovely little place, with an excellent 'home grown' supermarket, where we have stayed a few times over the years, but not at the Asure. Those with more... More
