Wow! If you're looking for a high quality, immaculately clean, well appointed room for a family or business, I'd definitely recommend the Ashburton Motor Lodge.

We were meeting up with friends the next day in Ashburton so needed somewhere for the night. Our son had seen the place as we drove through the town and asked if we could have a look at this place to stay. The rooms were amazing so clean and fresh, the facilities outstanding. Wish we could have stayed longer

Not new, but nicely maintained with all required amenities in the rooms. Some people may be put off by the traffic noise from the main road, but we found it was...

I found myself having to stay a week in Ashburton and my work booked me in to stay here. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The room was well appointed, kitchen clean, spa bath and confortable bed. Despite being on SH1 the rooms are quiet. I wouls happily stay here again.

The bed was the most comfy we have ever had in a hotel. Spa bath in room was great as well. The road was a little noisy but nothing to worry about. Great place to stay. Nice and clean. Great hosts. Will be back.

Highly recommend this motel. Very clean and tidy and the owners were so helpful we had a boat on the back and they helped park it out of the way and were so accomodating. Spa bath was a real treat as well after travelling all day.

Fantastic units, very clean and modern with wonderful facilities. Very friendly and helpful management, who made the challenges of looking after and feeding a large team very easy. Highly recommend. Very comfortable beds, great water pressure in the showers, spa baths in some units, good heating and thoughtful management.
