“Taylors is a treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2013

i had never been to ashburton & its good a strange layout with the train line & sh1 running next to each other & this motel on the road running parrallel to both- the freight trains arent the best for a light sleepesr passing 4 times per night week days. the manager Kaye is very effiecient & the place is very well kept grounds & units alike - i can see why it it is number 1 rated in this town for sure - it deserves it - go to Robbies across the train line for a real feast & get discount on your meal package

Very smart, tidy clean and friendly motel. The owner met us on arrival and was more than happy to assist us where we needed it. Everything you need is supplied with a kitchenette and they even offer a morning tea or coffee service direct to your room. Rooms are spotless and location is great. Excellent Motel!

Chai or Hot Chocolate or espresso on arrival Very friendly and infinitely helpful host. Just great. Would happily stay here again. Spacious and quiet in the back bedroom of a 2 bedroom unit. On departing the host remembered where we were going and made a lunch recommendation.

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.
