Friendly staff and clean motel at a reasonable price. If you are looking for an average priced motel with good size rooms then this is the place. It is within walking distance to Countdown supermarket if you need it.

Excellent service from the wonderful host Chris. She couldn't do enough for you and made you feel so welcome. Rooms were spacious and very comfortable with strong wi-fi. All in all one of the best motels in which we have stayed. Highly recommended from us. Thank you.

Fantastic service. Came here on a motorbike tour and the host offered us her car to go to town. One of the group turned up late and was offered the separate room next to ours at the same rate. Great service and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Very friendly and helpful service made staying here very relaxing. Large but older rooms and apartments. Good internet. Rooms are single storey located around a courtyard set back from the road. This end of East Street gets mostly local traffic, as the main highway through Ashburton is West Street. There is some train noise, but it's infrequent. If I'm in...

Enjoyed the opportunity to view 50+ Sky channels, close to restaurants, domain, showgrounds and shopping. Would stay again and recommend to others. Found owners to be caring and extremely helpful and knowledgeable on events and places to visit in Ashburton.

A fabulous place to stay. The lady was lovely. We arrived soaked after a motorcycle journey and she offered us her car to use to go out to dinner to save us getting wet again. The room was nice and comfortable. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

We had a weekend stay at the Commodore and found everything to our satisfaction. Although it was an older style property it was very well maintained with evidence of improvements over time. Plenty of parking & management were very friendly & helpful. The room we occupied was certainly more spacious than many more modern motel units. We would certainly stay...

We only spent one night at the hotel, arrived rather late and left early but altogether this seemed a great place. Quiet comfy rooms, nice bathroom and kitchen area and a very friendly host. Everything you would want in a hotel.

I stayed at this motel for 4 days while attending a sports tournament in Ashburton. I was going to be on my own for all but one night that my hubby was joining me so didn't need a big room with a full sized kitchen so was very happy to have this slightly smaller room for a cheaper price that...

Hubby and I decided to break out journey to Hanmer Springs with a stopover in Ashburton. This motel was reasonably priced, very clean, comfortable and the owner was very friendly and welcoming. Should the need arise, we would certainly stay here again.
