The motel is in a good location and the room was a decent size. However, the Wi-fi was terrible, our kettle didn’t work and it was very noisy. Fine for one night but definitely doesn’t match the description on the website.

Dear Abinlincs, Thank you for your review and I would firstly like to apologise your stay was not up to your expectations. It was most unfortunate that there was night road works the evening you stayed and while this is out of our control, it still made for a noisy evening which I understand is not what you are looking for when trying to get a good night sleep. Our internet is run through ultra fast fibre and we offer 1GB codes initially, however if you require more we are happy to provide this. The kettle should have been identified as faulty prior to the room being occupied and this is not good enough, again our apologies. Lastly, I am happy that you found the location and room size good and hope the issues raised does not deter you from visiting again. Kind Regards, Shelley

My wife and I stayed for two nights. The staff were great and we had a lovely apartment. It had everything we needed, the bed was comfortable and it was very clean. It is a 20 min walk to the city and a 30 min bus ride from the airport Great place for a few days. Didn’t brave

We were booked in for two nights but only stayed one even though we had paid for it. We were given the studio unit which seemed a poorly constructed room above the garage. The hall that took you into the toilet shower and hand basin was very narrow!! This bathroom certainly

Dear julphil, I am very sorry to read this review especially given I had asked specifically if there was a reason for you leaving early and you advised there were no issues and you needed to travel to Nelson due to the fires? Had you mentioned any issues, we would have been more than happy to of assisted you. Please note this room is due for refurbishment in the coming months. Regards, Shelley

Neville is right. There are only 2 buses from the airport. Make sure you get the one that goes via Fendalton. The bus will go into the city alongside the park and then turn right into Victoria St. Ring the bell to get off once the park (on your right) finishes. The bus will the. Turn right into Victoria St and there you get off. The walk to Ashford from there is quite short - 5 minutes. As you get off the bus, turn left and walk straight down Papanui Rd. You’ll pass a Shell Service station. Go a bit further. Ashford is on the same side S the Shell. Good luck
