Best motel in Timaru.
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 10 Mar 2021
We love staying at Ashley Motor Lodge and have stayed many times over the years. The rooms are well-appointed, homely, warm and always clean! The beds are comfortable. The owners are great and we always get a warm welcome. The internet is good and we like having Sky TV. Great location next to the Botanic Gardens too. Best motor lodge in town - would always recommend!

I have stayed here many times over the past 9 years with work. It’s always a fantastic place to stay with very comfy beds and great in room facilities. It always feels like coming home!

We always receive a great welcome upon arrival too.

Looking forward to my next stay!

Our daughter had a bleeding nose, so we were running late to get to Timaru. Karl stayed open late to wait for us to arrive. Great host, very clean and tidy. Easy to find and convenient location. Can't go wrong staying here.

We had such a great warm welcome from Carl and Janet, this is by far the best motel my family have stayed in. the kids were so excited because they could watch TV in their room and have a spa bath in the big bath. Will definitely stay here again.

Clean, immaculate studio. Well maintained property with pretty gardens. Owners friendly and kind. In the studio we were upgraded to there was a tv in lounge, and two bedrooms- very handy! Would recommend to friends visiting Timaru.

Could not fault, spacious and modern, everything you could wish for was supplied. Have stayed in several motels in Timaru before and many around New Zealand and this was the most well kept property and facilities I have stayed in. Will certainly be staying there for our next trip to Timaru. All staff were friendly and amazing. Just loved our stay.

Room tip: We had unit 9 a one bedroom suite was spacious quiet and great views
