Well appointed room comfortable very large bed, good kitchen-et, very clean and very friendly staff lovely place to stay. Ashburton was a nice quite country town. Kay was wonderful and very friendly, went to dinner at the place suggested. The shower was hot and the towels fluffy. Great place to stay.

What a great place to stay very great welcome super coffee and orange juice for kids on arrival. Girls where so excited to get free Wifi coupon. Room was very clean and warm great that Kay recommended Robbies across the road and with their key we got 10% discount off our meal. Would recommend this place and we would sure stay there again.

We spent one night at Taylors Motel on our South. Arriving at 7.30pm tired and hungry we were greeted by Kay who was extremely friendly and helpful. She showed us the very last room, recommended somewhere for dinner with a 10% discount, gave us free WiFi and coffee in the morning. The room was excellent, nice and warm, a good size, very well equipped kitchen, big bathroom, clean and tidy. Highly recommended for an overnight stop or for longer if you have time to explore Ashburton.

Tonight we are here again and the welcome is just SO wonderful.
On our way south we had booked and the manager had the heater on for us and such a
super welcome. Hot expresso and directions to the supermarket and a free Wifi coupon.
The studio is clean, warm and all fresh with good cooking facilities.
Next morning our washing held us up but that was no problem to the team.
So, we decided to return for another stay on our way north.
Again, the heater was on more free Wifi and coffee and a hot chocolate will be delivered in the morning and we have been upgraded to a bigger room for the same studio price
And they are keen to promote recycling too
A fabulous place to stay in Ashburton.

Room Tip: Just stay at "Taylors Motel " in Ashburton

We stopped at Taylor's Motel after a long drive from Dunedin - there was only one room left, a 2 brm unit which Kay (manager) gave us for the studio rate. I have to say Kay is an amazing motel manager - she can not do enough for you, and goes out of her way to ensure her guests are happy. I hope the owners of this motel appreciate what a great manager they have. The unit was fresh and clean with everything we needed for a night's stay. Robbie's Restaurant across the road was very handy for a good meal. No wonder this motel is always busy.....

A warm welcome here and nothing is too much trouble. Free wifi. Laundry facilities. Cooking facilities. Clean and tidy. Our Two bedroom apartment was probably somewhat small for four adults, our two friends did not have space for both their cases in the twin bedroom. But fine for one night. Christchurch airport is within easy reach if you are coming in or out of NZ.

Stayed here for 1 night on arrival in New Zealand. We were given a very warm welcome and helped up with our bags to our room. We were in the smallest room and on reflection we wish we had booked a slightly larger one as they had more rspace and better cooking facilities. However as a stopover it was perfectly adequate and very clean

Room Tip: Don't book small studio
