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.

We stayed here while on a biking trip in the South Island. It was two level accomodation adjacent and below a main road. Walking distance to green areas and supermarket. The unit was clean but had an unusual layout in the bathroom and second bedroom which wasn't ideal. There was no sound proofing between floors where we had kids running around upstairs late into the night and workers using this as a base coming and going. It was not restful with additional traffic noise. Wife was not happy with the amount of light from outside lights reflecting onto the ceiling from the top of the curtains. The manager/owner was very pleasant and helpful and we were able to park safely with our bikes. Location was ideal for us although entry was via a side street. Would be stay again. Probably not.

We only stayed one (unexpected) night, and our proprietor was very welcoming. The Ashbury was easy to find, the unit was clean and warm, and the continental breakfast was a delight! Would definitely stay here again.

We have stayed here many times as a family of 4 from Australia. The owner's service and friendliness is second to none. Nothing is ever an issue, we have stayed in many hotels in Timaru over the years to visit family, and the Ashbury Park Motel is one of the best.

Thanks for being so helpful! 😊

Stayed 1 night on route to Dunedin. Place was clean and tidy but a bit dated. Fairly priced and staff helpful. Good location to explore Timaru. Would recommend for short stay. Had everything you need.

Arrived to a typically South Island very friendly reception to find that we had inadvertently booked two rooms. This was sorted very quickly by efficient staff. Enjoyed a great three night stay and was afforded a late check out with no issues. When we had accidentally spilt some red wine in the room, this was handled in a more than reasonable manner. Great South Island hospitality.

I knew the Ashbury to be a great value motel from previous stays here. Rang Frank late one night needing a room. Did me a awesome deal, and when i arrived very late that night, the key was in the room, and the heater on. Very much appreciated. The rooms are always tidy, and i have never found road noise from the State Highway a issue. Will absolutely be back!
