Stopped off on way from Dunedin to Picton to catch the ferry. Very good location, very good rooms and very friendly welcome. The owner was busy welcoming his own family at the time I arrived but still was professional and friendly (including recommeding the best Indian restaurant in town!). In a great location in Rangiora with supermarket within walking distance...

We booked the river stone motel at relatively last minute. We arranged for a late check in, the motel communicated really clearly via text about late checkin which was appreciated. The room was clean & modern & had everything that we needed. Good location with a supermarket & pub close by. Would definitely stay again!

Fantastically surprised at the quality of this motel! Quite new, very comfy bed, GREAT spa bath and all the amenities you need. Bus line runs out the front and a Pak'n'Save 3 minutes walk away. Friendly and helpful service made for a great 7 night stay!

Wow! Would have to say this is one of the best motels we've ever stayed in. Spacious, sooooo clean, really well layed/kitted out, gorgeous furniture and fittings and amazing water pressure! We stayed here as guests for a wedding at opoho (closest motel... Yes there are taxis) and we are so glad we opted to tack on the night before...

Made an impromptu weekend to spend it in Hanmer Springs, we found that the only accommodation that was available did not have any good reviews at all so decided for $15 more we would stay here since we would leave for Christchurch the next day and we're so glad we did. Peter greeted us at reception and was very accommodating....

We stayed here whilst visiting family for 2 nights in a 2 bedroom suite. The motel is modern and well equipped. Only issue is that we found is that it is really noisey at night as it is beside a pub / restaurant. I even had to pop in earplugs one night. Only other complaint is that the main bedroom...

Located on the outskirts of Rangiora, and very close to MacDonalds, Pack N Save and right next door to the Brook bar and eatery on the way into town, Riverstone Motel is one by far the best motel I regularly stay in, in Canterbury. The motel is modern and well insulated for both sound and cold (or heat). I can...

We stayed here one night as we had a family event to attend, however wish it was a longer stay as this really is a fabulous place to stay. The beds are so comfortable and squashy ( meant to check the make!!!) . It is exceedingly clean and well represented with fabulous bathroom products. We had a studio room but...

There are a number of places to stay in Rangiora, but Riverstone is the superior venue. It is new (only a few years old) and the rooms are clean, fresh, warm and comfortable. The manager is professional and courteous but also a funny guy! Although not located in the centre of the town, none the less it is convenient to...

Really nice place. Rangiora may not be NZ`s finest town and there may not be much t see but you definitely not go wrong staying here. Clean, well fitted and adding to the list of very good motels in this country.
