                Liked the big cosy fireplace and TV. Also the new dining arrangements

                I was really dissapponted that the pool is no longer indoors. I always pack my togs coming to the Hotel Ashburton, but they never got used this time. Why would you ?

                for Ashburton a basic hotel with hotel facities

                no late meals

              • Older travelers
                7.0

                The room was clean and had been upgraded. It was easy to stay at the same place as the business function we attended. It was a nice suprise to see the rooms had been redone and were more modern.

                The House keeping staff were talking and laughing very loudly outside our room while we were trying to sleep. Ok it was 9am but being farmers we were trying to enjoy not having to get up early and we did put the do not disturb sign out. It was very disappointing.

                The young people who worked in the restaurant were well trained and did a great job

                The staff were very friendly especially at reception. I accidently left something behind in my room and when I phoned up and inquired about it; they looked into it for me and called me back afterwards saying they found it : ) and that they would have it at reception for me to pick up as I was still in Ashburton. If I wasn't they would've tried to arrange to get it to me. Also my teenage daughter wasn't well, so they asked if they could help in anyway. The room was very comfortable, and I would stay there again if I needed to.

                Only thing was there was people running up and down the hallways during the night, which was quite noisy.

                comfortable well priced accomodation handy to shops etc.

                hotel restaurant too expensive esp breakfast

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, Our room was very clean, cofortable and had everything in it we required. The breakfast was beautiful. The outlook from the dinning room was very relaxing. We enjoyed our stay so much we have booked again for October.

                Nothing

              • Older travelers
                8.8

                Up graded to b&b, the breakfast was excellent, the room was the cleanest we have stayed in. Would stay their again

                The water pressure was very low in the room we had, also discovered we had an extra lounge attached to the room which we were unaware off. The room we were in was overlooking the pool area which was nice, but their was a big step to get down via the sliding door

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                Lovely nights stay - not sure about breakfast - $25each - went at 9.30am and most things were dried up - especially the tomatoes.

                Breakfast needs to be cheaper.

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                WE stayed there because we attended a wedding at the hotel. Very convenient and good standard of accommodation

              • Older travelers

                Great location, excellent staff, would recommend staying there.

              • Group of friends
                4.2

                The location and outlook are good.

                We booked two rooms at special price as offered from the hotel. When we arrived and ckeck in, the staff told us that because we booked at cheap price so our rooms do not have air conditioning provide and the room without any window and only one sliding door to the public garden. The room is so hot, all of us felt very uncomfortable. When we mentioned to the staff , they seems no response and don't care. Please tell us special price means downgrade all the service they should provided? This is very hard for us to recommend to our friends for booking accommodation at special price.

                Very clean and tidy. Room was a good size for a family.Had excellent garden and play area for children. Washing machine use was free and you only had to pay $2.00 for a dryer. Would stay there again. Resturants were not overpriced.

                The food was great and the rooms had plenty of space and well set up with places to eat without leaving the hotel
