We stayed at this motel twice during our holiday, and we loved the location. It is just a short walking distance from several parks and the CBD. The unit was also really clean and modern. I'd definitely stay here again!

We have stayed here for almost 2 weeks due to covid 19. The circumstances were uncertain, but Shelley was very understanding and we could speak Dutch with Hennie and Leo from housekeeping. They took good care of us and provided us with everything we needed. We had a perfect spacious room with good wifi and cooking facilities. A supermarket is at walking distance and a beautiful park is in the neigbourhood. It's a perfect place to stay near the center and 10 minutes from the airport.

We stayed here unexpectedly for two weeks during the Lockdown. Shelley, Hennie and Leo took very good care for us. Despite of the problems they were very kind and helpfull. It felt almost like home ! The studio has cookingfacilities and a large bathroom. Everything you need is available. Within a ten minutes walk you have a supermarket, other shops and a marvelous park (Hagley Park). Value for money is excellent.

Dear Siebke27, Thank you for taking the time to review Ashford and I am so pleased you have made it home safely! With COVID 19 causing lockdowns, I understand how uncertain these times were for you both being across the other side of the world. Anything we could do to make you feel at ease was our main priority! We wish you all the best back in your homeland. Take care, Shelley

As a group of 6 adults plus 2 children we needed a first night’s accommodation with easy access to the airport before picking up our Motor Home to start our trip. This Motor Lodge was perfect for us , we booked three apartments next to each other. Ours no17 had everything and more , double bed, bathroom en suite , lounge and kitchen and even a private balcony over looking the swimming pool. Everything was fresh and clean, for the price I would highly recommend you have a stay here.Oh and the walk across the Park and Botanical Gardens into Cathedral Square was an added bonus!
