We had a nice family weekend here recently. The chalet was clean with everything we needed.
The bistro meals were pretty basic with lots of chips and slaw. Chicken was dubiously pink and “vegan” meal contained cheese. However, the service was great and the atmosphere comfortably casual.

We had 3 nights at the Stronechrubie motel on a recent trip to Mt Somers. We chose this place mainly because it is dog-friendly and we like to travel with our 2 wee dogs. The location is great for access to the Ashburton Lakes and Hakatere conservation area. The motel is just a km or so outside of the village center, just off the main road. There’s not much in the way of variety of eateries there. Stronechrubie has a good little restaurant on site and the local tavern does reasonable takeaway style meals. Also, there is occasionally a takeaway pizza place in town (Johnatellos Pizza Inferno), depending on the day, and they do great pizzas!!

The rooms are a bit dated, however they are clean and well-maintained. The rooms all have an adjacent carport and a back door that opens out to a large grassy lawn. The kitchenette is very basic but functional. Wifi was a bit of a problem at times. Sometimes the signal was too weak to make a good connection in our room. We generally just used the 4G network on our phones. The room had a good TV and effective heat pump. We had a nice relaxing stay. Overall we really liked this place and would definitely recommend it to other travelers looking for a good base in Mt Somers.

Nice cafe, proper iced coffee, good Americano coffee. Delish cheese scone. Always pleasant service.
Nice seating outdoors in the sun and a private area suitable for a group.
The lunches I saw looked delicious and generous portions, will be back for lunch.

I was happy to find Stronechrubie was our weekend destination. We were warmly welcomed by our Host and shown to our Motel which was warm cosy and had everything we needed. We dined at the Restaurant an amazing food experience. Our weekend was extended due to the flooding but our hosts were extremely generous even bringing us Soup and Toasties for lunch. Would certainly return to enjoy another relaxed weekend away.

Visited Saturday 15th May 2021.
Our order was very very late and when it finally arrived was cold! Not well cooked and not the best quality.
I have however visited this establishment in the past several times and found the food to be very good.
It's the inconsistency of the quality and service that make my reveiw a fairly difficult decision.
Out of 5 visits this year 3 where good and the past two very poor.
My Friend could not even eat her meal as it was swimming in balsamic vinegar. Mine was cold but after a 1.5hr wait was eaten.

Please guys sort out your business !
