“On a budget?”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

If you find your funds low, why not try staying at a Motor Lodge. The beds are just as comfortable, you are warm and dry inside the cabin, and you can still have breakfast delivered in the morning. I stayed in the basic cabin and it was adequate for my needs. The only drawback was the toilet and shower were not connected. For some the cabin might not work - if you have a weak bladder, it wouldn't be for you. However, for many it works just fine and the cost is very affordable. With my savings I was able to go out to eat and shop. The cabin was the most basic option. For people who just need a stay-over, I recommend it. They also had other options for larger families and budgets. The kitchen facilities were very nice and the showers and toilets were clean. They even allow pets! That is a very big plus if you have those.

Room Tip: Select the size recommend for your party, if you have pets, bring their beds or bedding, if you have...

Room Type: Chalet
Price Paid - $99

First Impressions

Holiday Park was easy to find, and handy, but off the main road. Was greeted by a teenager who was energetic but had troubles using the eftpos machine.

Room was a self contained unit, in its own building, with a spacious living area, couch, table, and a double and single beds. Kitchen appeared well stocked with everything you would need.

Bed
Bed was a double, nothing to write home about, slept ok.

Shower
Water pressure was to be desired,and if you don't shut the door to the kitchen properly it swings open, and makes it very difficult to open the door. As most places I have stayed the Towels have been either on the bed, or hanging up in the bathroom, when I got out the shower I could not find a towel in the normal places, and luckily had my own towel in my bag. Once I was dressed I asked at reception about where the towels were and was told they are kept under the sink in the bathroom.

Room Overall
Overall its a pretty basic room, nice and tidy well priced for maybe a couple with a child, or a small group. But would not recommend for a business traveller travelling on their own. Although room is off the main road, and a fair distance from the railway, because of the building materials, could hear the train go past over the TV.

Service Overall
Overall average service, think I must of arrived when the owners daughter was manning the desk for a few minutes, and then when I went to ask about the towels was when the owner was showing other people to their room. Although there was coffee and tea available, no milk was offered

Thanks for taking the time to post your review on our page. We apologise for not having an adult manning the desk. We had one staff member on bereavement leave and Jamie and I were called out to a fire at a rental property. Fizz hasn't done the office before - Murphy's Law that guests would come in on that occasion.

We have taken on board your comments about the towels in the bathroom cabinet. The logic was that it would be more convenient for guests to have the towels near the shower, but in hindsight it might be better to put them back onto the beds.

Just a reminder that the chalets are part of the holiday park and classed as a budget self-contained accommodation - which is reflected in the price of $99. We do have lovely 4 star motel units with all of the embellishments that corporates expect including queen sized beds. These units start at $130. Regards Tania

Stayed here for 1 night in April. Didn't see much of the place as we arrived late and then left early the next day. The facilities though were spotless so on that basis I would recommend it if you are passing through Ashburton.

We spent the night at Coronation Holiday Park in our camper. The site was dry and well maintained. The helpful service from the reception staff was appreciated and the facilities were good. We will be back.

Landed in Christchurch, fought our way through the afternoon traffic from the airport to Ashburton on our way south. Arrived at the Coronation Park Holiday Park where we had booked a studio chalet. We were upgraded to 2 bedroom cabin which was plenty of room and well maintained with full cooking facilities - very happy for the price.

Stayed in a cabin for $65/night and it was clean, tidy, and pretty good value for money. the toilets were a fair trek from the cabin and it was a cold night ... but that's not really the fault of the park! the staff were friendly. the bed was comfortable.

I didn't find much of interest in Ashburton but the holiday park was lovely.

Nice clean spacious cabin and good facilties.

The beds were comfortable and we slept very well.

Didn't use it but there was a pool.

Cooking facilities are good but there is no equipment laid on (I believe you can rent).

All in all it was easily the best (and cheapest!!!) place we stayed out of the 5 from Queenstown to Christchurch.

Highly recommended.

The cat was adorable!

Room Tip: All seemed good to me+++
