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.

Super nice, friendly and helpful owners. I left my power bank worth $200 behind and they phoned me right away. I couldn’t go back because of heavy rain/storm. The owners then offered to post it to me and I received it within 2 days. Highly recommended. A+

It's No 1 for a reason. Easy to find,comfy & quiet, and not far from main shopping district.Perfect spot to break a journey if going further south/north.You will hear some traffic noise,but very minimal.

A lovely quiet motel in a great location. The room was warm and comfortable with everything a traveller could need. Spotlessly clean and everything worked well. The owner is friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this accommodation to all.

Thank you for a wonderful one night stay. We arrived late at night in the dark & rain & received a very friendly welcome. Upon seeing we had our teenage son with us (whom I had accidently forgotten to include) we were upgraded to a lovely two bedroom unit. Such a lovely gesture! It was warm, cosy & spotlessly clean. We would not stay anywhere else in Ashburton, it was perfect.

I am delighted to recommend Taylor's Motel. The unit was spacious and very comfortable and superbly clean. Kay and Des were wonderful, thoughtful hosts. We were there for two nights for a family wedding, and on the second day the weather took a sudden turn to very cold with a strong wind. When we returned to the motel, Kay had turned our heat pump on. We were very grateful for the warmth.

We had a great stay here. We stayed for two nights whilst travelling on business. Units were spotless and the kitchen facilities were excellent. Location was great, a short walk from the town centre and the beautiful park. Thank you very much for having us.

Found this place at short notice. Good rate, location and recommendations where to find a feed and a drink on new year's eve. Even provided secure storage for our bikes rather than leaving in the ute. Super comfortable bed and amazing pillows.
