Great place to stay although a wee bit out of town it was worth the distance. If your going to the races it is the perfect spot. Very clean and tidy, absolutely excellent shower, although they are new owners they certainly were very friendly and welcoming. It was great being able to sit outside in the sun for breakfast. Would recommend this motel as the place to stay.

Room Tip: We had one facing the east so got early morning sun.

I have stayed at this motel on several occasions. Found the staff to be welcoming and professional. I was a later arrival on a cold evening. The room was warm on my arrival. The room was roomy, tidy and functional. Very pleasing to note the full range of sky TV channels (I like the sport channels and the motel has all available - along with the movie channels). Also pleasing to note the room had 2 comfy lounge style chairs. Such chairs enabled me to relax in comfort. Overall one of the better motels that I have stayed in.

Room Tip: Motel located on the North side of Ashburton. If you wanted to visit the CBD you would probably appr...

Stayed for one night on Saturday 17th may for my Dads 80th birthday. Very easy to find as its on the main road. Very well priced as we got a two bed roomed apartment for two adults and two children for $160. Others motels in Ashburton were charging closer to $200. Rooms very large and had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend.

The Ashburton Motor Lodge was great, we had a DBB organized for a group of over 35 people, and spent 3 nights here enjoying / exploring the whole area.

We visited parts of Ashburton that most of us hadn't known existed and over the 2 full days we managed to travel to Trotts Garden: Oxford: Terrace Downs Resort: Rangiora: Rakaia and have a brief look through central ChCh [which was a sobering sight].

The Motel accommodatiuon was magnificent, all group were very pleased with warmth, comfort, cleanliness, service etc.

The first 2 nights we could not fault food, but main course dinner on evening 3 was a disappointing experience with 75% of us returning the main meal. The staff serving us were absolutely marvellous coping with our moans and groans and were appreciative of our concerns.

All in all - I would definitely recommend this venue to all for a fantastic break away.

Room Tip: I believe all rooms had a reasonable outlook - mostly onto gardens.

Just a note to thank the owners for finding us another hotel to stay at when they were sold out. We had just driven down from Picton and were exhausted. We did not expect that they would be sold out but due to the earthquake many Christchurch locals had been vacating the hotels outside of the city. They took the time and phoned around for us and got us a room over in Methven.

Thank you again and I wish we could have stayed with you but wanted to note your kindness with helping us out. :)

I have used this place a bit with work and always found the rooms to be clean and comfortable with all the facilities that I require for an overnight stay. The onsite restaurant is well worth a visit too. Great breakfasts!!
