Very friendly and helpful. Eco friendly too. Could not have found a better place in Ashburton. we were there for a wedding and to find some old friends. The manager was very helpful and the staff considerate and chatty. There was play area for children with a trampoline and bathing pool plus a Barbecue.

Originally we planned to go to Akaroa from Mt. Cook which was about 4.5hr ride. Then we decided to stop over at Ashburton for one night and it didn't disappoint us. The staff there was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and cozy with simply everything you need. There were many choices of restaurants around the motel.

We were given a house to stay in for the night as we are a family of 6. We really appreciated the space. So clean and tidy and friendly. A very comfortable way to break a day's driving. Close to the main shopping area.

The rooms were well appointed and the proprietor was kind enough to upgrade our rooms when he saw that we had two largish kids rather than 2 smallish kids which was great. Rooms had great kitchenette with all the pots and pans you needed which we somewhat took advantage of. There werent any good restauants too close by unfortunately so...

We stayed for one night prior to Christmas as they were highly rated on Tripadvisor. Their units are very clean and customer service was a very high standard. Keep up the good work - we would have even paid a little extra for such a fine motel.

Great location literally 5 mins to airport, great service and clean comfortable rooms. Would highly recommend! Quite popular, it was full when we stayed. We had a hire car and the service station was up the road and several eateries around for dinner.
