Very cramped

Review of Taylors Motel
2.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 23 Mar 2021
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.

Loved our stay at Taylors Motel in Ashburton. The grounds are manicured with a variety of seating outside the rooms and shaded bbq areas. The rooms are spacious, quiet, clean with comfortable beds and seating. Friendly, approachable management. We will definitely stay here again.

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.

The hosts were extremely accommodating for us, with having our room ready early as we had travelled a distance. Our room was so clean & a big comfy bed too! A fantastic location in Ashburton. We will be back.

We stayed here based on previous reviews and it was just the best place to stay,.
In fact we rebooked 4 days later on our return back up the coast and enjoyed the same rooms.
This place was Affordable, very clean, comfortable, well appointed and quiet,
We could not fault this venue and our hosts made us feel very welcome
Well done and next time we visit Ashburton we will rebook

Do something new NZ! Don’t just pass through Ashburton - pull into Taylor’s & stay a night or two with hosts Des & Kay Rogers. Owner operated since 2005. My uncle & Dad stayed in this place in the 1970s, still going strong in modern trim. Great value, quiet, comfy with Netflix or YouTube. Handy to the Phat Duck across the railway for a great meal. Best of all is the welcome & hospitality, not only fresh bottle of milk but an offer of a welcome ale too, never have I experienced that! No wonder they are #1 on TA. Well deserved.
They locked our bikes in their carport which is over & above. We went to the airport museum, a must do & a good reason to visit. Keep it up Taylor’s!
