Stayed one night for my elderly neighbours 80th Birthday. The Hotel rooms are satisfactory but in need of decorating. I would have preferred a small table and a couple of chairs rather than two queen beds( can not see the point in having two big beds in a room). The Gardens are really nice and in summer it would be...

Hi Thank you for posting your feedback on your recent stay at Hotel Ashburton. Some of our bed configurations allow for share twin occupancy, next time you stay with us be sure to ask for a double King room which has only one king bed. The gardens are a great asset to the hotel and are stunning in the spring...

Stopped on our way to Arthur's Pass. Quiet location, beautiful grounds, friendly staff, rooms and bathroom needs to be updated. Worst bed we had in three weeks of traveling and that is high on my list when traveling. Excellent restaurants!

We were here as speakers at a recent conference. The staff did not know who we were - and they were so helpful - to each and ever person who walked through their door. They could not do enough to make sure that every body had what they needed. The cleaning ladies were more than helpful and friendly and I...

We ate in the restaurant the other night. Food was amazing. Service was outstanding, we had this lovely waitress by the name of Julia and she made us feel very welcome. My partner had the duck and I had the chicken. 5 star service. 5 star food. would definitely return.

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 !

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...

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.
