Darfield Motel

Darfield Motels is a 13 unit Country Motel just 30 minutes from Christchurch. We offer a good range of rooms including our very popular "Cottage" which is like a home away from home. This is a 3-Bedroom unit with a large living area and big Kitchen. It has a large fridge/freezer with ice maker, full oven and 50' television. We have four 2-Bedroom units including two family units, Lodge and a two bedroom wheelchair access unit. These all have cooking facilities and are extremely comfortable units. Along with our six Studio units we also offer two Luxury units just recently built. One is a spa bath unit which is very popular for that romantic weekend away, while the other is our second access unit. At Darfield motels we offer free internet/wifi, free parking, free DVDs,free laundry facilities and we also have six sky channels in the rooms. Darfield is a close drive to many ski fields, air ballooning,fishing and golf courses. The town has two excellent restaurants along with a fabulous bakery. A great option if you are flying into Christchurch and wish to avoid the city we are just 25 minutes from the airport. Darfield Motels is a Four star Qualmark rated motel.

We choose to stay at the Darfield Motel when travelling through Canterbury. The service is excellent and the units have plenty of room to spread suitcases about. It is also central to our needs - visits to friends.

Had a night at the Darfield Motel. Good people, good motel, quite expensive for a country town. But they are often booked out so best to check ahead. In middle of village service and amenities. Mark, Dunedin

Hi. Our Lodge is a Two Bedroom unit. There are no beds in the living area and i am sure this unit would suit your requirements.
