Our stay at the Ashley Motor Lodge exceeded all of our expectations! Right from the get go the hosts were so kind and welcoming! The rooms were large, clean, modern and had a great homely feel to them! Every aspect of our stay was amazing and we will definitely recommend it to all of our friends visiting NZ!

I recently stayed at the Ashley Motor Lodge, having also stayed there a couple of times before. The units are always immaculate and best of all, very warm! Beds are very comfortable too. No problems with road noise.

Stayed here with my parents one night halfway to another destination. The place was great! Very spacious and comfortable and the man at check in was very kind. They have everything you need for a good rest, even wine glasses in the cupboard. This was a quiet location just on the edge of town. Not far from the little downtown...

We stayed 1 night at the Ashley Motor Lodge. The proprietors were very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is not extravagant, but has nice clean amenities and is laid out very efficiently for a short stay. It is on the major highway, but noise is minimized. Parking space is acceptable,but if someone comes in with a larger vehicle than expected...

We were given one of the disabled rooms which was excellent, very roomy with level access from the car parking space, and a huge wet...

The host of this lodge was super nice and accommodating. When he found there were 3 adults in our party he up graded us at no charge to a 2 bedroom studio! The room was impeccably clean and we found a small tray of ice in the freezer, the first of the trip

Stayed one night on a drive south, the lodge is on the main road out of Timaru so handy for an early morning start to head South. Room was a good size with a separate bedroom.
