If you need an overnight place to stay in Ashburton, this place will do. It's clean, reasonably comfortable, and pretty quiet considering traffic and the noise of the occasional passing train. But it is also tired and gloomy. The hosts are friendly and welcoming. However, while this motel offers discounts, I was not asked if I was eligible for either. I probably wouldnt stay there again, choosing instead one of the neighbouring motels
