Last stop from NZ trip, impressed with the suite. The room is modern and big, great facilities with huge LCD TV and 200mb free wifi. Complete set of cooking gears. Great location, close to city, shopping centre and restaurants. Friendly service reception. Recommended!

The location is good and there are good eateries within walking distance. On the surface, the room is clean but the cupboards had cobwebs and some have obviously not been cleaned for quite a while. We wanted to have toast but the state of the toaster made us change our minds rapidly. It is comfortable enough but we have stayed in better accommodation for the same price range. The people at reception were friendly and helpful and that helped make up for the less than expected cleanliness of the place.

Stayed here for our last night in South Island having toured NZ for 4 weeks. Fantastic facilities in excellent condition. Loved the contemporary design and spacious feel of the rooms. Warm, friendly service by the two receptionists we had dealings with. Gave great advice on local places to eat and also ways to avoid the early morning traffic jam to get to the airport. A 4.6 earthquake as we were getting ready to go to bed was unnerving but didn't affect any of the fixtures and fittings and the buildings are obviously earthquake proof, so we slept soundly.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear of the Lodge are furthest from the road and very quiet.

We are starting a self drive tour around the South Island of New Zealand. Our first booking from our travel agent was the Ashford Motor Lodge. Great choice! 10 minutes from airport. Large spacious one bedroom suite with nearly full kitchen, large living room and large bathroom. Some free internet service. Very nice staff. Big value for the money.

This completely refurbished motel is a great example of value for money, the soft furnishings and
other are of a high standard. This motels also got the complete 'customer service' package working in it's favour, we arrived quite late and were given directions on how to find them, the warm reception was great after another motel in town was the exact opposite to the point of being offensive. We will definitely stay here upon our next visit to Ch Ch.
