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.

My wife and I stayed here during our two month South Island road trip. Although we have travelled through Murchison on previous occasions this is our first overnight stay. This motel is pleasantly situated in a very quiet spot not far from the main centre but well away from any traffic. Our room was large, clean and tidy with tasteful furnishings and a very comfortable large bed. Very handy for us, parking was right outside our door. There was full 50+ channels Sky TV and free unlimited good wifi coverage. The only slight let down for us was the very small kitchen together with a minibar sized fridge

Great motel, very clean and quiet, had a 2 bedroom unit which was great, full Skytv for everyone’s watching taste. Walking distance to everything, friendly and helpful staff. The place has 2 laundry’s for the different areas from what we could see so we had one close to our room which was handy
Highly recommended

Good location central to town, and town close to walks and adventures in the area. Good convenience store for supplies close by as were a couple of good pubs and coffee shop just down the driveway. Spacious room had kitchenette for self-catering, 2 Q bedrooms, lounge/dining and strong wifi. Would recommend. We stayed in room #6 around the back which had views of the mountains and were a little quieter (not that noise was an issue at all). Ample parking. Laundrette across the road.

Room Tip: Rooms around the back (eg #6) would be quieter as they're away from the street. Pretty view...

We enjoyed one night stay with our young children, stayed in two bedroom unit 5.
Very modern kitchen, heat pump and partially double glazed. Very clean and well catered kitchen. Bathroom older style, wet floor shower so the water does tend to flow out onto the floor and steam up the room but definitely not a deal breaker.
Owners were very friendly and welcoming, would recommend if staying in Murchison .

We stayed in unit 5 which is a 2 bedroom unit with 1 double bed and 2 single beds. The unit was clean. The living area is very spacious. The motel is situated a short walk away from all amenities in Murchison.

The owners have obviously put a lot of thought into providing clean and modern accommodation. Our room was really comfortable, good TV channels, nice big bed with quality linen. It's close to shops and restaurants and an ideal place to stay.
I would say the swimming pool needs either renovating or doing away with.

We stayed here a couple of days ago & this place was perfect. It was lovely & quiet (couldn’t hear any road noise which we hate), immaculately presented, great hosts & within walking distance to the restaurant’s & shops. We would definitely recommend this motel!!

Great location in the small town. Staff are friendly and helpful. The pool is very cold but refreshing on hot day. Rooms are clean (mattress was a bit lumpy for my liking). Appreciated having a full sized-fridge. Sorry to find the BBQ was broken.
Lots of space for kids to run around.

Stayed in Unit 10, seems it has recently been modernised inside. Very quiet. The super king bed and linen was absolutely amazing. Comfy couch, great heat pump, well stocked kitchen, modern bathroom. Parking right at the door (it was raining!) which is convenient. Outdoor table and chairs were perfect for the morning coffee (when the sun eventually came out). Just a few minutes stroll to the little caravan "bakery".
