We had the good fortune to book into this motel while on a driving tour of the South Island. We were given wonderful service from the manager, Carl. The rooms were the very best we stayed in on our tour of the Island. They were spacious, clean and well appointed, and we would recommend this motel to anybody who is...

A comfortable and clean large motel complex on a very busy road. I booked this expecting a spa but got a bath with some jets. Disappointment aside I did ask for a quiet room which we got at the rear. The bed was extremely comfortable and a great small kitchenette should you wish to prepare some basic meals. The staff...

This is a very comfortable and spacious motel. Clean and well appointed. Very comfortable beds. Relatively quiet from road noise ( rear units) - friendly, efficient reception and management. Good location.

Had a great stay at the Ashley Motor Lodge. The room was large and very comfortable. The kitchen had everything I needed and then some - great pans, sharp knives, many cooking utensils. The room was very quiet. Didn't hear any traffic noise at all. Will definitely stay again, if in the area. The owners were very friendly and helpful....

What a great find! This motel is in a great location, immaculately clean rooms and wonderful hosts. I had the pleasure of staying there last week for one night and I was greeted by the owner who was very warm and welcoming. The room already had Wifi set up and connected when I got there and although located on the...

Overall a good place to stay, rooms clean and well furnished, friendly reception. The only downside is that the internet access is limited to 500MB per day - which for a family of four is very restrictive. If you want to listen to music or watch videos maybe look somewhere else.

My family stayed here for one night. It is run by the owners who do an excellent job. They are very friendly and helpful. The motel was exceptionally clean and looked brand new although it wasn't. The rooms were large, clean and very comfortable. It is a five minute drive to the town center. I would stay here again and...

As you approach this motel, the words ‘Voted number one in Timaru’ are clearly visible on the sign outside. Ashley Motor Lodge certainly lived up to its promise. Carl and Janet were very welcoming and friendly hosts and the facilities were excellent. Our accommodation consisted of separate bedroom, sitting room and bathroom – unusual for a motel. There was plenty...

Clean and comfortable - very pleasant helpful managers but was disappointed that for a three night stay we were put in a room with a view of under the stairs. It is on the main thoroughfare so easy to find but did not notice any undue road noise.
