The good news - Lovely and quiet , comfy bed and great shower. The bad news - NO RED WINE GLASSES and Shampoo. A bit dear for Murchison but that's life. I don't think we'd stay there again as next time we would just go right through to Blenheim and stay there.

Helpful and friendly staff. Nice clean rooms over looking farmland. Reasonably priced - perfect for an overnight stay. We were driving between Christchurch and Picton. When we arrived we were walking distance of the local pub where we had and enjoyable dinner.

We had a very comfortable overnight stay here. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean and well equipped. Check in and out was very efficient. It's located just a short walk from the main street of Murchison where there are a couple of bars, restaurants and supermarkets. All in all a good choice for an overnight stop or longer for the...

Nice clean facilities. Easy walk to town and pub. Plenty of room for 4 adults and nice BBQ area out the back. Friendly service. Good value for money. Good wifi. Only complaint is the cost of laundry facilities.

A very easy to find Motel. We arrived early but the proprietor allowed us into our accomadation which was a great help. Plenty of info in the room about the area. Rooms were very clean and serviced every day. The Wi-fi was the strongest we have had so far. We would return

This is a convenient good value stop over between Nelson and Christchurch. Check in is fast, check out is faster. Room was clean and comfortable and intended for short term stays. Wifi worked well and short stroll into town.

Perfect stop if you're driving from Wellington to Christchurch. Very well prices, fully renovated/modern facilities. Bath and shower best we had in NZ. Full kitchen. Beautiful location, to and from Murchison 👌🏼 btw try the local pizza place near the hostel 👌🏼

We stayed here for only one night while travelling through town and we thought this motel was fantastic and very comfortable. We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom units and everything was in exceptional order and we had no issues with our stay whatsoever; everything went smoothly - the way you'd expect it to. Highly recommend to those travelling...

This was far below the level of motels we had come to expect in New Zealand. The rooms were tiny, old fashioned and had no real kitchen (just a toaster, kettle and microwave with small fridge) but given the tiny tiny rooms, they were really hard to squeeze all our luggage into. Our 4 person family had to take adjoining...

Stayed here as sh1 on coast was closed following earthquake. Murchison is a nice little town with several cafes, shops and a small supermarket. Motel is in the back streets and is very quiet with no highway noise. Major down side is the extremely poor water pressure in shower. Alright in sink and bathroom basin so oblivious water limiting valve...
