“Great place to stay while travelling through”
Reviewed 4 October 2013 via mobile

Very comfortable for a travelling family of four. Our room was well appointed and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Close to local shops and services. We would actually have liked to stay longer to explore the area but time and itineraries dictated otherwise.

Thank you for your review. We do have a lovely town. Everything is reasonably close from Hot Air Ballooning to jetboating or even nice walkways. A nice place to bring up our children. Thanks Bex

All we needed for our overnight stay. Clean, well equipped, very comfortable and quiet. Craig was very welcoming with a just needed latte on arrival. The cost was reasonable with complimentary wifi. Well done.

Craig and Rebecca had been wonderful hosts who were very welcoming and helpful, so were the rest of their team. All of them made us feel very much at home.

Our 5-week stay was very comfortable! Clean, well maintained, relatively spacious and warm rooms (was winter then). Just like in the photos, a furnished apartment with everything you need (even an oven in the kitchen). WiFi is free, though it would have been nicer if it was unlimited.

Overall, a great place to stay with 5-star service! Thank you guys =)

Welcomed in the most friendly way and at such a late hour! Then offered a complimentary expresso. Older motel being done up however I stayed in one of the existing rooms and it was warm comfortable and everything you need. Grt stay nicely maintained grounds which reflects the attitude of staff. And great reception convenience shop to support and added requirements in both snacks and necessities . Like all of ashburton there is a train near by but bearable

Room Tip: I always book downstairs rooms

We stayed at Taylors Motel on the first night of our trip to NZ. We received a very warm and friendly welcome & a complimentary cappuccino & hot chocolate. In fact, our greeting was priceless. The room was exactly as described, very clean & comfortable.

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
