Stayed 3 nights on business trip. Nice large rooms very clean, with a large spa bath. Sky TV and helpful friendly folk running the place. Also very quiet although its on the main road. Didn't hear any significant traffic noise . The building is solid so you cant hear your neighbors either. Will certainly stay there again.

The Phoenix is very comfortable and clean with decent size rooms. Showing a little bit of wear and tear but not much really. I had a (prearranged) very late arrival and it was no problem to have the room left unlocked for me which was very convenient. Didn't see that much of the owners but they were friendly. Looked like... More

A great little motel, the rooms are clean, look new and spacious. On checking in we were given great advice on places in town to eat. There is also a small shop on the opposite corner if you wanted more milk etc. The only minor problem is that to go to the town centre you have to cross over the... More

We stayed at the Phoniex Motel for one night, the motel was lovely, very clean, great location and the room was really well equipped. The owners were really helpful, they assisted us with an issue with the booking and helped us resolve it immediately. After we left we realised we had left a phone charger and a baby's towel, they...

It was a surprise to find such a nicely appointed motel in Temuka after having stayed in quite a few run-down ones there previously. I'll always book this one every time I go there from now on! Big spacious and private room with a king-sized bed, clean and tidy. We had two cars and yet parking was not an issue.... More

Freezing cold when we arrived so it was a delight to be welcomed and escorted to our room by Clare. The room was spacious and comfortable and everything worked. The kitchenette was perfect for our minimal cooking and the bathroom was huge and the wet room was a great bonus. Free wifi was quite speedy. Many of the artworks on... More

I stayed here for a night on my way to Christchurch and really enjoyed my stay. The room was neat and tidy with 2 TVs. One in the lounge and another in the bedroom. The toilets and bathrooms were neat and tidy. It is just a quick walk to the city centre and place seemed peaceful and quite.

The rooms are spacious and clean. The kitchette has everything u need and the bathroom has a spa. I really enjoyed the little extras including a biscuit to go with my cuppa and makeup remover wipes. Claire at reception is lovely and very welcoming. The only negative is it can be a bit noisy at times with traffic. Would definately... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this lovely motel. The rooms are spacious and clean, as was our bathroom. The people who run it are friendly and helpful. I will definitely come back if I am ever in Temuka for a visit.

Very welcoming reception from the owners. Nice, reasonably spacious room, spotlessly clean. Easy flat walk to town (village?) centre (try the Jolly Potter for food and drink). Handy to convenience store opposite. Situated in street just off main road, so some noise, but not obtrusive. Would stay again.
