We stayed at the Sundowner for two nights, due to earthquakes and flooding blocking our way home. Of all the motels we stayed in on our two week holiday, this was the most spacious. It was good to have somewhere to put our bags and still be able to walk around the unit. A proper table and chairs, good internet...

This is a very average motel. the decor needs updating , it is stuck in the 1970's. beds was rather hollow and not that comfortable. Only stayed one night. Within walking distance to Speights Ale house for meals.

We stayed here for 2 nights visiting the north of the island and would have stayed longer but the motel was booked out. Our one bedroom apartment was very clean and tidy and had basic kitchen needs. Wifi was included. There is a supermarket across the road which was extremely handy. There is also a pool but it was a...

The room was comfortable and clean. The Internet was free but it's usefulness was limited by the meager amount of data you are allowed to use. We were not hoping to steam a movie, just check email, look for a nice restaurant for dinner and make a reservation for the next night's lodging. Their meager allowance ruined an otherwise nice...

Have stayed at many of the Asure Motels in the South Island and this was OK but not great for me. travelling with a colleague he has a room down the back that was better laid out and more functional. Place was quiet, clean and bed comfortable. I will return but will request a studio room down the back. Nice...

The motel is well situated - right across the street from a shopping centre and a Speight's Ale House. The rooms are a good size, well appointed with a kichenette and wifi. I stayed there at the suggestion of a good friend in Blenheim on the night of March 9th of this year. The best thing about the Sundowner though...

We stayed at this motel recently for 2 nights whilst finishing off a tour of the South Island, New Zealand. A clean airy, tidy motel with plenty of space. The owners made us feel very welcome. However, on the second night I was kept awake by a large wedding group which decided to continue their celebrations in the outdoor pool...

Sheila, you seemed to have been the only person in the whole complex that was kept awake by our guests who were sitting around the pool, and not all of our guests in all of our units were here for the wedding. You mentioned your husband slept through any noise. There was another bedroom in the unit that you were...

I stayed there with family members when visiting for one night during their three night stay. It had a queens/king bed in the lounge and queen in the bedroom, so suited us perfectly.
