My partner drove me to Ashburton for my birthday and because we were tired and he wasn't feeling too well we decided to stay somewhere. I'm glad I chose the Commodore. Chris the owner is a beautiful person and was so helpful and accommodating, so much so we decided to stay another night 💜 May you enjoy your time at the Commodore like we did 🥰

The lady was very helpful and friendly the room was very clean and we booked for one night and stayed for two and would go back for sure .the motel has the bonus of being pet friendly and the dog loved it not having to sleep in the car. I was also towing a large trailer and she made it easy for me letting me take up a few parking's in front of the unit.

Passing through from Oamaru. As we light sleepers wanted to be away from main drag. Very reasonably priced Motel and friendly owner. Older motel but nice and quiet being one street back from the main road. Recommend if you want a good night's sleep in a clean room at a reasonable price. Also do try the Formosa Chinese restaurant. Top quality place.

I could not appreciate this place enough 😍 Our host Chris was more than accommodating and really went the extra mile, even turning on heaters for us when we were due back late. The room itself was clean and tidy. grounds were well maintained and the location was great. Chris and her team, really deserve there own award, they are down to earth genuine people, this country certainly needs more of them. We will definitely be back, in the meantime I wish these lovely ladies all the best and suggest anyone who wants to experience genuine effort, this is a must stop for a great stay!

Decided on a change from my usual Ashburton stopover , what a gem i found .Great , friendly service , alot cheaper and so quiet. Lovely studio with full kitchen and dining .Nice to have a comfy chair to relax and watch the tv on a unit so didnt have to crane my neck looking high up on a wall .Yes, it is abit dated with old style shower but it aas a wonderfull experience and will stick with this new find .

Only stayed one night thank goodness after a long drive in a one bedroom unit{12} but didn't expect especially these days to have to sleep in such soft beds as they were very uncomfortable to sleep on! Everything else about our room was mainly fine so it was a real shame about the beds.

Always a friendly welcome and we were accommodated in a very clean studio unit. Everything worked well and the bedding very cosy on what a cold wet evening. We would be happy to stay again if in the area.
