Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Tui wrote a review Jan 2024
South Island, New Zealand8 contributions
I have stayed here quite a few times before and have been very happy but after this experience NEVER AGAIN!!! There was a misunderstanding with payment a couple of hours before I got to Ashford Motor Lodge that was handled very badly by the receptionist/manager. They made me feel like a criminal and the manager ended up shouting at me that if I didn’t like it I could leave. I was really shocked and embarrassed by her behaviour. I had nowhere else to go at such short notice and I didn’t want to lose the money I had already paid so decided to stay. During my 3 nights there I received no apology from her for her behaviour. This is really no way to treat paying customers! However I decided not to allow her mean spirit to ruin my stay and really enjoyed visiting Christchurch. I will visit again but I definitely won’t be staying at the Ashford Motor Lodge!

Hi Catriona, We are sorry that you are disappointed but appreciate your feedback. Please be advised that our policy is that if you are arriving after 8pm you need to pay before arrival so as your card was declined we rung to get an alternative form of payment for your stay. Our policy on this has changed recently as we have had some not so honest people take advantage of our late arrival policy and decide its ok to stay and not pay for their room. I am glad you enjoyed our beautiful city.

Stayed there with family (2 adults + 3 kids). The apartment was se ton two levels, which was absolutely perfect - kids at the top floor (just up the stairs with a curtains as a wall). Specious with decent size lounge to relax , and small kitchen. We only had breakfast there and it was great with everything you need for it. Walking distance from a city centre (yes, even with kids it was not far at all), and nearby Hagley Park was great for a morning run. There are laundry facilities, bit dated, but again - did the job. Unfortunately kids didn't get to use the pool as it was closed (had cover on), but again - it wasn't a big deal for us as got other stuff planned anyway. Would highly recommend it!

This motor lodge was great value (114NS$/£60 per night). The room was really big, lots of space for all our luggage, it was clean and well stocked. There is a small kitchenette which we only used for having cold breakfast/tea. The bathroom was big and clean with a good strong, hot shower. The staff were really friendly and helpful- there was space in the reception for us to leave luggage in the morning while we were waiting to be picked up. It is close to restaurants and supermarkets. We got there easily by bus from the airport. We only stayed one night before picking up a campervan but I would definitly stay again if I was in Christchurch.

A fantastic place to stay. We stayed for 4 nighs over easter. The pwners are friendly and accommodating. The motel is clean, fresh and has everything we needed and more. Close to all amenities too. I highly recommend Ashford Motor Lodge Christchurch as an accommodation destination for small and big groups. Thank you for having us. Aroha

This unit was modern, clean and tidy. Service was excellent however bedroom was too cramped. There was a double bed and a single bed crammed into one room. No room to walk comfortably in between or through between bed and door. No room for bedside tables. Bit of a risk if you needed to get out in a hurry. Would have been much better with just a good size bed, e.g king.

Awesome place to stay. Friendly checkin and had everything we needed. Great location by Hagley Park. Kids loved the pool. Right by the road but noise wasn't too bad but room shook when buses/trucks raced past!

Thanks for the awesome review we are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Unfortunately a lot of Christchurch shakes now when the trucks and busses pass by since the earthquakes hope this was not too troublesome for you.

A very good clean, large motel room that is within walking distance to Christchurch. Has a good size kitchenette and a comfortable bed. Close to restaurants, shops & botanic gardens. On a main road but little noise evident & has onsite parking. Highly recommended.

We chose it because it was Pet Friendly. Very warm welcome. After a long drive on a cold winter's day, we arrived to a wonderfully warm and spotlessly clean room. Bed was very comfortable. Will definitely revisit.
