Reviewed 17 June 2009

This is by far the best motel we stayed at during our travels around New Zealand. The service was exceptional, the owners hospitality was second to none, and the standard and cleanliness of the unit was impressive, right done to a complimentary espresso coffee on our arrival. I never write in reviews but this motel super-seeded all of our expectations and I need to highly recommend it to all travellers.

I have stayed at Taylors Lodge Motel frequently over the last few months and have found the staff very friendly and helpful. The Motel is conveniently located and the rooms are spacious and comfortable.
I would recommend staying here without hesitation.

We recently spent a night at Taylor's Lodge Motel, in a two-bedroom ground-floor unit, #2. Cost, NZ $119.

Rebecca the owner checked us in, in our room! She even brought us coffees which was a nice touch :-)

Unit 2 was clean, spacious and perfect for our needs. One bedroom had a queen bed and a single-bed, the second bedroom had twin-beds.

In the living-area was a large, comfortable couch and armchair, plus dining-table and chairs and tv.

The grounds of the motel were immaculate; lovely flower-beds etc.

My son enjoyed the giant trampoline in the neat lawned area at the back of the motel. There was also play-equipment for younger children.

Whilst I didn't have time to use the hot-tub/spa I did make use of the laundry-facilities. Ho-hum ;-)

The motel is an hour's drive from Christchurch airport. Very handy.

We enjoyed our stay here very much.
