Booked in our team for work and received the most wonderful service, from booking to paying and more, we changed our reservations more than once, and only ever received lovely polite service the whole way. The team staying all commented on the great stay, the beds were so comfortable, and they were only disappointed getting home from work at 12am...

We have stayed at the Ashburton Motor Lodge on many occasions. Sally and Harvey are excellent hosts. The rooms are beautifully clean and maintained and the fairly recently upgraded beds are extremely comfortable. The units are warm with a generous supply of heaters for the colder months. There is a guest laundry and adequate parking. The motor lodge is by...

Lovely big and clean and comfy room, big spa bath as well, and everything you need is there. Although the motel is right on the SH1, Yes it can be noisy when you leave the doors/windows open but if you leave them closed, it'll be fine. Normally, the traffic will die off around 9-10ish and I'm sure you'll have a...

The lodge is right on SH1 so very noisy with a door or window open. With the doors and windows closed it is much better but on a hot evening it would be uncomfortable as there is no AC. The hosts are very welcoming, the rooms are clean and the broadband is quite fast.

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. It's right on the northern end corner as you arrive into Ashbuton. Close to the airport, aircraft museum, skydiving and 5 minutes away from the supermarket and main town. The hosts were very accommodating and...

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

We stayed two nights here - the motel itself is on the outskirts of town but still close enough to everything. The motel is clean, neat and well presented. 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 enjoyed my stay here, the owners were lovely and very understanding of my 2 year old, the room was modern, with all the mod cons and very clean. The bed was lovely and comfy, the only thing that was a wee bit of a let down was the noisy road, but it was double glazed so cut out the...
