This review is for my sister who does not have a computer and has asked me to do it.
They broke down in a motor home in Ashburton. Booked in for the night, told the owners
of there plight and they even offered them the use of their car, which I might add was a new one, not old. They even offered if they had to stay extra nights, if the motorhome was not fixed,they would juggle the guest around as they were fully booked, luckily they didn't have to do this. Fantastic place to stay,exceptional couple. Spotless motel, short flat walk to town. Wish them all the best in their business.

Room Tip: Any room would be fine, has sky tv, very quiet.

We stayed for just one night after being on the road for 13 hours, how nice it was to rest in a quiet room and have the best sleep "ever' on the best bed in a motel, that we have ever had. Very clean spacious rooms and Mary-Anne and Harley were exceptionally friendly and helpful people. See you on our next trip through, guys!

Room Tip: Exceptional bed

Good, clean, basic motel in a good location. Had everything we needed and the hosts were very friendly and accomodating. We will be back if we need to come to Ashburton again. We got used to the trains :) Thanks heaps!

Harley, new owner this year, and his wife are



honest and helpful. I travelled around NZ for two weeks and this was easily the nicest place, clean, comfortable, and relaxing.
There's a good bar across the tracks and down a bit, the beer is cold and the food good.
