Situated on the main road, Culverden just an hour’s drive north of Christchurch and only 25 minutes to Hanmer Springs. We are a 5-minute stroll to shops, cafés the art gallery or for the golfer we are directly across the road from the Culverden Golf Club. We offer free WiFi. Our clean, spacious one and two-bedroom units are affordably priced and will be an ideal base from which to explore all that the Hurunui region has to offer.

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.

I stayed in this motel for one night, the owners were so accommodating. We had to rush off for a training event and when we did it was warm and sunny, but 5 hours later it was cold and we got back in the dark to find windows and curtains shut and heater on, thank you. The room itself had everything we needed, beds and pillows were comfortable and we were warm and it was spotlessly clean, everything from cutlery to bathroom to bedroom. We ordered breakfast and enjoyed that the next morning. Sue, thank you for taking such lovely care of us.

Lovely place! The room was clean and had everything we needed. The owners (Sue and Peter) were very friendly. They provided an additional bed (at no extra cost) for us. The lovely garden was definitely an extra!
Will definitely stay here again.

Once again, stayed overnight here after a trip to Christchurch. Immaculate rooms, bathroom newly renovated, friendly hosts, surprisingly quiet, yet handy position on the main road, excellent continental breakfast option, very comfortable bed.

Highly recommended!

This place is run by friendly people and is near Hamner Springs. It’s got most things you’d need. Comfy beds and clean.

The shower l does not have a pressure adjustment of any kind. The Wi-Fi voucher 1G did not allow fast internet speeds as stated. It was very slow and cut out regularly

On the main highway and cars + trucks can be heard at night

without a doubt worse motel, lack of cleanliness, heating and mostly privacy! if these are important factors in your accommodation, do not stay here! most appalling was the attitude of the owners, who entered my room unannounced at any time they felt, protesting about my power usage, and informed me at 8.30 am I was unwelcome to use my room during the day, as this was against "policy" dispite our room had already been pre paid for us to stay that night!!! Awful experience. If you don't want to spoil your hamner springs experience, go straight to hamner springs!!!!

If you don't want to stop at Hanmer Springs which is very touristy and expensive, then we can highly recommend this motel at Culverden. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Our unit was clean and very comfortable and we sat and had breakfast outside on the garden table. There are not many places to stay along this road but we can recommend this one.

Clean middle standard. Everything very clean and welcoming. Though there are two tings I no longer understand being 2016 already. 1) The worst shower system in the world is the Felton Mix - it never has adequate pressure and there is no water volume control, only temperature control. It takes forever to take a shower as it does not rinse the hair properly etc. Not having a shower hose is another relic from the 1970ties. When there is a choice of options, I decline bathrooms with Felton Mix. 2) Internet voucher with 200 MB limit and the need for a complex log in ... what? In today's age where broadband accounts are unlimited for most, why cause such a complication with limitation and log in delays? It has been a long time to come across such ridiculous internet control in any accommodation place the world over. I was offered additional vouchers if need be and just to come and collect - but that cannot be done at 4 am in the morning. Get rid of that silly restriction - the only thing you achieve is unhappy customers. Since there is no other choice in the area, be aware of these issues of aged and artificial unnecessary inconveniences. - If you find this report helpful, kindly give it the thumbs up - thank you.

I arrived on a very wet and windy afternoon and the owner had put the heating on for me and was very helpful and friendly. The motel is very well looked after, it was spotlessly clean and had everything you could possibly need for a short or long stay. I would definite recommend the motel if you need accommodation in this beautiful area. Culverden is a small place with only a few places to stay and eat but the Four Square is well stocked and the fish and chips from the takeaway (with a huge menu) were delicious.

An older building but all aspects of the building and the exterior grounds were fantastically maintained. Beds were very comfortable. Small kitchenette allowed us to cook a meal.
Owners were exceptionally friendly and helpful.
We had a room at the very front of the motel next to the road and their was a bit of road noise from the many trucks passing by at night.
