Review of Taylors Motel
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 18 Apr 2023via mobile
I am delighted to recommend Taylor's Motel. The unit was spacious and very comfortable and superbly clean. Kay and Des were wonderful, thoughtful hosts. We were there for two nights for a family wedding, and on the second day the weather took a sudden turn to very cold with a strong wind. When we returned to the motel, Kay had turned our heat pump on. We were very grateful for the warmth.
Date of stay: March 2023
Room Tip: Plenty of on site parking.
Trip type: Travelled with family

This little gem has everything you need; plug sockets where you want them, robes in the wardrobe. the shower was powerful and hot and It was spotlessly clean. The staff were super friendly and so helpful. A very comfortable night’s sleep.

We had a great stay here. We stayed for two nights whilst travelling on business. Units were spotless and the kitchen facilities were excellent. Location was great, a short walk from the town centre and the beautiful park.

Thank you very much for having us.

Found this place at short notice. Good rate, location and recommendations where to find a feed and a drink on new year's eve. Even provided secure storage for our bikes rather than leaving in the ute. Super comfortable bed and amazing pillows.

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.
