Darfield Motels is a 13 unit Country Motel just 30 minutes from Christchurch. We offer a good range of rooms including our very popular "Cottage" which is like a home away from home. This is a 3-Bedroom unit with a large living area and big Kitchen. It has a large fridge/freezer with ice maker, full oven and 50' television. We have four 2-Bedroom units including two family units, Lodge and a two bedroom wheelchair access unit. These all have cooking facilities and are extremely comfortable units. Along with our six Studio units we also offer two Luxury units just recently built. One is a spa bath unit which is very popular for that romantic weekend away, while the other is our second access unit. At Darfield motels we offer free internet/wifi, free parking, free DVDs,free laundry facilities and we also have six sky channels in the rooms. Darfield is a close drive to many ski fields, air ballooning,fishing and golf courses. The town has two excellent restaurants along with a fabulous bakery. A great option if you are flying into Christchurch and wish to avoid the city we are just 25 minutes from the airport. Darfield Motels is a Four star Qualmark rated motel.

This motel was easy to book, very clean, great beds and everything we wanted. the staff were exceptionally friendly. We only stayed for one night but would happily have stayed longer. The motel is close to local shops and garage. They were very helpful about our dog staying. great motel and would definitely stay again.

Great price for last minute booking, two rooms beside each other. Super friendly & helpful owner. Units were warm, clean & bed comfortable. Good shower pressure. Can't actually think of any negatives.

We stayed at this hotel as it was pretty organized as part of a wedding we attended. We got the accessible room and it was great. Lovely spacious room, very clean. Great big bathroom. Being the accessible room the shower was walk in with a curtain and was quite nice. The owner was very lovely and helpful. Would definitely stay again!

Lovely clean, comfortable and modern motel and a very friendly host. But, only one easy chair, not so good for a couple, no dining table, a notice in the kitchen requiring guests do dishes, I would suggest you wash dishes before using them because some folk that see this will rinse dishes and put them away dirty, And one more very annoying thing, charging a surcharge for using a credit card! This is a tax deductible expense, so double dipping!

Hi, Thanks for taking the time to post a great 4/5 review, We appreciate all feed back and look at all recommendations, The dishes are only a request to leave the kitchen in a clean and tidy manner as you could imagine we do get some that leave with dishes up to your arm pits, Yes we do check all dishes at check out, as for the credit card fees I'm unsure as to how it works as a tax deductible expense but will look at it, Thanks and be sure to call in again next time you are in Darfield Cheers Wally & Gaylyn

We stayed her on the first night of our recent bike tour to NZ. It was very clean and comfortable with lovely manuka products, tea, coffee and hot chocolate. Friendly owner, who lent us an electrical adaptor for us to use.
