Nice motel set back from street but the owners manner could have made it a much more pleasurable stay. A bit abrupt/direct in his manner. Little to no conversation. "Where are you from" "That's the wrong one" (card) "Just the two of you" A more customer friendly welcome and manner would not go astray. The motel adequate the manner could... More

Read other reviews and you will know there are some issues with owner's attitude. Rooms itself are clean and sufficiently stocked but bed linen is old and needs a much needed replacement. Also someone else mentioned internet not working and I am pretty sure owner switched that off around 11:30 as I couldn't even ping the server. It was back... More

This motel is first class, extremely clean and the couple that run the establishment are very professional and friendly. We only had one night but wished we could have stayed a week. We were made very welcome on arrival and before our evening meal we enjoyed a swim in the small pool which was very welcome after a day of... More

My husband and I stayed here with my mother and father for our engagement celebrations for 2 nights. We still talk about how awful the host was. The highlights of his actions include allowing a fellow guest, trying to climb through our motel window at midnight. He explained she was a regular (with a mental problem) and blaming us for...

I found my recent stay at this motel very enjoyable. I was warmly welcomed by the owners little black Schnauzer, Rose, at check in and everything was ready for me. The room (Unit 15) was immaculate, the bed was very comfortable and I found the huge spa bath the perfect way to end the day. It was also very relaxing... More

I have never come across an operator of a motel as awful as the man that works at the Regency. My partner and I were meant to stay at the motel with a group of parents who had travelled to Ashburton to watch our daughters compete in a tournament. Our accommodation was booked by a fellow parent. Initially I thought... More

Hard small bed, hard pillows. Slow, spasmodic, wifi very frustrating if you are trying to do business communication. Pokey, cold space. Couch in lounge has springs poking in places they shouldn't! Very disappointing. Manager was sniffy when we told him we were checking out early because room was uncomfortable!

Stopped here for one night on the way back from Te Anau to Christchurch. Check in was fast and easy and parking was great. Rooms were very clean, beds comfortable, and kitchen facilities more than adequate for the short stay. The shower whilst being a little on the small side was excellent with great water pressure and long lasting hot... More

We stopped at the Regency for 25 nights whilst in Ashburton visiting family. We have two children (10 and 6). Murray and Katharine were very welcoming and made us feel at home.

We were on the road and hadn’t booked ahead for the night, and stopped at the Regency because it looked nice and had room. It was a good choice. It’s not your standard tourist motel but appears mostly to cater for travelling tradesmen and truck drivers, although it has a swimming pool and children’s play area. The buildings and décor...
