I found myself having to stay a week in Ashburton and my work booked me in to stay here. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The room was well appointed, kitchen clean, spa bath and confortable bed. Despite being on SH1 the rooms are quiet. I wouls happily stay here again.

Good morning, and thank you so much for the lovely words. We understand that being away from home is not always ideal, so making your stay more comfortable was part of our hospitality success. Hopefully your 'work' will assign you to us again. More

The bed was the most comfy we have ever had in a hotel. Spa bath in room was great as well. The road was a little noisy but nothing to worry about. Great place to stay. Nice and clean. Great hosts. Will be back.

Highly recommend this motel. Very clean and tidy and the owners were so helpful we had a boat on the back and they helped park it out of the way and were so accomodating. Spa bath was a real treat as well after travelling all day.

Fantastic units, very clean and modern with wonderful facilities. Very friendly and helpful management, who made the challenges of looking after and feeding a large team very easy. Highly recommend.

Very clean motel, we stayed one night en route to Queenstown. Very comfortable and staff very friendly and obliging. We would definitely stay again. One of the few motels that have a a good kitchen set up with hotplates, not that we needed to use that night. Thanks

We are traveling as a family of 4. After checking in, we were advised that it's going to be cold at night. Electric blankets and heaters were shown where they are. Rice cooker is offered in case we wanted to cook. Amazing hospitality! Thank you!
