We only stayed one night but our room was large and clean and the buffet evening meal was good. The hotel felt dated but was in a good state of repair, if a little stark. There is an outside pool which looked clean but is cold ! Reminds me of highland hotels in remote locations !

We stayed on March 17th on our way to Dunedin. The room was clean and quiet beds comfy warm and clean. The outdoor area was great to relax in and well maintained. We will recommend to friends and family as the price and stay was great. Check in was smooth and wifi was great ticks all the boxes for us.

Very disappointing stay - at check in our room wasn't ready and so the receptionist passed us over and started serving the next person while we stood there after a 4 hour journey with a baby and a toddler. I had to interrupt to suggest they take my mobile and call us when it was ready. On check in the... More

Attended a conference here and stayed 1 night. Bed was nice and firm, had a good sleep. Room had plenty of space. No Sky TV!, but watched the rugby game in the bar, Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Value for money.

Not impressed. Toilet and unit smelt like the toilet had over flowed at some stage. Yes they come and cleaned it. Shower leaked all night. Yes they got the plumber in to fix it. Shower needed a good scrub around the edges. Basic TV channels only. Would not stay again

Hotel Ashburton was our first overnight stay after sailing to the South Island. It was ideally placed for us as we went on the Asburton to Greymouth Tranz Alpine Railway. This way of travelling was much more interesting than the road route.

Good sized rooms but real bonus for Ashburton is that it is not on the main road - so a very quiet hotel. Morning breakfast was good, I booked bed & breakfast so made the most of buffet breakfast. Cost was good for the standard of room which looks like it has been renovated recently. Overall, an excellent stay!!

Absolutely beautiful. We have enjoyed every moment staying here. Our room was perfect. A wonderful array of food for breakfast which we enjoyed overlooking the very beautiful gardens. The gardener should be highly commended. The staff have all displayed a high standard of service and they are all very friendly & helpful.
