Met on arrival by Craig asking if he could make us a coffee. Took us to room, which was spotless, the bed was sooooo comfortable, had the best nights sleep ever. The garden was a picture, and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Thank you Taylors Motel we will stay again.

Meeting Craig at check-in, you get the feeling of a smooth stay ahead. A great example of an owner operated motel. Room was clean with everything in good working order. Great staff! They deserve their #1 TA ranking.

Excellent hotel. The room was wonderfull, very roomy and with all amenities. The staff was extremelly helpful. If you need a stop in your way north / south trip, it's worth to plan Ashburton as a destination and go to the Taylors.
