Have stayed here a couple times, although it is a little bit more expensive than I would normally expect to pay, the rooms were very modern, tidy and comfortable. I was really impressed by how welcoming, helpful and friendly the staff were.

Work booked me here for a week, lovely newish and a very clean comfortable unit. Bed was great (slept well- always a good thing) Close to town, I thought it would be noisy but no it's set back off the road and I enjoyed the 10 o'clock train - brought back memories 😃 Helpful, friendly, professional proprietors, would definitely stay...

Manager was extremely welcoming and helpful. Place was very clean and comfortable. Quiet location and yet very near places to eat/shop. Very good price for the size of the apartment. Ashburton is a better place to stop at than Geraldine en route to Lake Tekapo/Mount Cook from Christ Church as it is a bigger town.

The motel is back from the road, and just a few minutes walk from the main shopping area. Very friendly welcome, and help with taking our luggage upstairs. Unit was very clean, and the bed was wonderful. Free internet, though a little slow. Would stay again if in the area.

Very nice newish private units in small block, and set well off the road. We were welcomed by the very friendly proprietors and treated to a cup of coffee immediately. Wifi reception in our end unit was an issue, but we were told that this should be rectified within a few weeks.

Staying in small towns away the norms of a big city 5 star hotel can be nerve racking wondering what your stay will be like. In the case of Taylor's the welcome alone is worth the trip, greeted like long lost friends you immediately know the stay is going to be great. The staff are so friendly and accommodating they...
