Situated off the main road through Ashburton, this motel is reasonably quiet, as long as there are no trains on the nearby line! Having said this, only one went through on the night I stayed there so I cannot complain. My unit was well-equipped, clean and had a good wifi signal. I was made to feel welcome when I checked...

Taylors Motel on East Street, Ashburton, is a very family friendly facility. Whilst it is well established, it is still clean, smells clean, and is easy to find. Craig Lambie is a great host, and when a blanket was requested, immediate service was provided, and several options offered. Television has plenty of channels.

We have stayed here twice in the past two weeks for a break from our motor home and to do our IT work. We found staff to be helpful and informative. The unit was exceptionally clean and the kitchen well stocked with utensils, crockery and oven ware. Even an electric frypan! And a TV in the lounge and the bedroom....

Owner was very friendly. He served us superb Cappucino and for my son, hot chocolate. Room and linen were very clean. About 5 mins drive from here was an area where you can find a big supermart. Checkout was a bit early- at 10 am.

Thank you for staying we love our motel. Although 99% of motels in NZ have a checkout of 10am, if our customers ask for a late checkout we are normally able to offer this at no extra charge. Thanks Bex

Owners are exceptionally helpful and friendly. We stayed in room 2 which has 2 bedrooms, one with a king bed. Nice and clean, with quality crockery and glassware... Felt like a city motel but with rural friendliness and outlook. Had dinner at Robbie's pub directly across the road. The 10% discount on meals and drinks, when you show your room...

Friendly lady at the desk and good breakfast in the morning, but that's about it. Our room was being aired out because of a heavy smoker the night before. With two young kids it was far from ideal. The lady offered a good discount and due to being a bit later in the evening I took the room. Shower had...

What to say to this? Our staff believe maybe you had the wrong motel as we are aware you were staying at a few motels. The heater was on in the room when you arrived, our units are all non-smoking and our lovely regular that was in the room the night before does not smoke. We only charged you for...
