Kay and Des are extremely welcoming hosts often upgrading returning guests if possible. The motel is exceptionally clean, comfortable and modern including the new Smart tvs which even have Netflix. This is one of our favourite motels in NZ and our first choice in Ashburton.

After a long road trip from Picton we were looking for a comfortable place to bunk down for the night. There are not many hotels in Ashburton so we were pleasantly surprised when we stumbled across Taylors Motel. Excellent value for money and everything was new. Well appointed / maintained rooms. A credit to the managers / owners. I would highly recommend to others.

Stayed in one of their Executive King suites with bonus spa bath, which are in a new wing. Very well appointed, double glazed, and warm. This new wing is nearest to the road and I was worried about road noise. I wasn't an issue at all. The train noise/vibration was intrusive but trains were rare and I'd say all motels in Ashburton face the same issue. Best things? Spotlessly clean and super friendly staff. Comfy bed and plenty of space for my husband to work for an evening. Will definitely be back.

We are absolutely delighted that you had a great stay with us and found everything well appointed for your requirements. As the train runs directly through the centre of town, you can virtually hear it from anywhere is town. Lucky the trains are few and far between now. Many thanks for writing your lovely review and we look forward to having you stay with us again soon. Regards Kay & Des

I stayed at Taylors Motel in Ashburton on the way home from the Brass Monkey Rally in June 2021. After five hours on a motorbike in the cold and rain it was a huge relief to find this warm and friendly oasis. The room was very well equipped, clean and tidy and the friendliness and helpfulness of the proprietors was a pleasure.

Fabulous last minute stay in the Executive King Studio. Super friendly host, fantastic amenities. Super clean and comfy. Bonus Spa Bath. See you again next time we travel through! Having just typed the above, TripAdvisor says I need to write at least 200 characters so adding this to make up the minimum lol.

Booked a family unit to sleep 4 males. Hardly room for 4 men to stand up at the same time. Very poky kitchen and bathroom area. The room with 2 singles barely had room at the end of the bed s to enter the room. When booking in the manager took a phone call and spent time on that while we stood and waited.

We booked this motel directly with the great Hosts Kay & Des and they appreciated our direct contact. The facilities in the unit were some of the best we have enjoyed in a motel. An Expresso coffee pod machine, lovely gardens and BBQ area outside the quiet room and good selection of crockery, glasses and utensils. Room was modern and very clean.
