“Great place to Stay”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

We were travelling to Christchurch at the end of our holiday and decided to stop off in Timaru for 1 night as we had plenty of time , we had nothing booked and stopped at the Ashley Motor Lodge as we entered Timaru on the main highway to see if had accomodation to suit us. We stayed here for 1 night and needed 3 bedrooms, the owner offered us a house which he had avaialable. The whole place was marvellous, very spacious. The place was immaculately clean, and we were able to relax in the spacious lounge.
The owner was very pleasant very helpful with everything and made our stay more enjoyable. He really took an interest in our comfort and wanted to ensure our stay was enjoyable.
This was a great place to stay and would reccomend it to anyone looking for accomodation in Timaru.

Basic room with kitchenette on ground floor. Everything worked properly and was well-appointed. Comfortable bed. Hosts were very helpful. Not particularly modern but not dated either. Our unit was right on Highway 1, so road noise was noticeable. If you can, ask for a room off the highway.

Large comfortable room and bed. Friendly and helpful owner. Clean kitchenette and had bathroom extra large (for wheelchair) with walk in shower. You can have breakfast, cooked or continental delivered to your room. Reasonable cost of 160 NZ dollars. Free wifi (500Mb) for up to three devices. A little noisy from trucks on route 1. Would be a bit more if we were closer to the main road. However, overall a very good convenient place to stay for the night. Will stay in this motel chain again.

Our family of four stayed at the Asure Ashley Timaru, King Street for two nights last weekend.
We stayed in a two bedroom unit with spa bath (unit 1). It was very clean, modernish and comfortable. A nice surprise was the units are serviced. Hosts are very welcoming and helpful. Dairy and garage nearby. Would stay here again and recommend.

I couldn't have found a better place to stay in Timaru. The Hosts are such hard working, friendly and the best people to be staying with! Your in "Great Hands". The premise is immaculately presented, Clean and Comfortable. It honestly felt like I was in a upmarket establishment and I couldn't be wrong. Even tho my intention was to be out most of the time as you do on Holiday; with Caroline Bay in magnificent form we were so comfortable at the lodge to put our feet up and enjoy the premise. With the beautiful community Gardens 500m away and a vintage tennis court so close we were content to enjoy the surroundings. The deluxe room was adequate for two of us but would accommodate three. The bath with spa was nice and living room comfortable especially the leather seats, they were real nice. The table was great for a work station and is good to be used as dinner table.
Having sky TV with the added bonus of so many channels to choose from was great.
You couldn't go wrong with this gem in Timaru! Thank you for the experience, I enjoyed the stay.

Room Tip: Try them all. Swimming pool and restaurant not applicable

We stayed one night at the motel together with my wife and 2 teenage kids. The rooms were clean and spacious and the spa bath was a plus. Only downside was that after we used the spa bath twice in a row, we had a really hard time to get the heater to provide more hot water to refill after that ... I think it was probably that we had exceeded the capacity of the water heater and could only get hot water again after quite a long time ... Other than that, it was a good stay and the place was nice and comfortable ...
