The Ashley Hotel Christchurch

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Lovely kind and welcoming staff which was great after a very long flight from England! Basic but clean room which is ok for a quick stopover. Comfy bed. Bathroom needed major updating but was clean. We walked into Christchurch from this hotel via the Botanical Gardens.

Rooms well appointed, modern and tidy. Looks like it has recently been renovated with bathrooms still to be modernised. Extremely clean and tidy throughout. Room was warm and cosy. A very busy hotel with many rooms, three story in places but mostly two story blocks. Ask for a ground floor room If stairs are a problem. Lovely reception and restaurant staff who were very obliging and friendly.

The room was reasonably cheap ($135) and I understand that you get what you pay for. However, I believe some improvements could be made. It was a very cold day when I arrived and I walked into the room and it was freezing. Maybe you could have heating on low from check in time so that it’s comfortable for your guests? The sliding door needed manipulating in order to lock it (we had to lift it up at the handle to be able to lock it). The bathroom had a little mould on the ceiling by the shower. I didn’t feel that the shower was overly clean. It was also difficult to get a nice temp on the shower and it didn’t have the best pressure. On a positive note the staff were friendly and the location is great.

Couldn’t fault hotel staff they were very helpful. We had a room on the ground floor that lacked privacy. No air conditioning so very stuffy even with windows open and room was on small side. Free WiFi which was good. Hotel was conveniently close to town centre and near Botanical Gardens which were pleasant to walk through on way into city centre. A good location.

My partner and I stayed here overnight because of its proximity to the railway station. The room we had was nice but basic, which was all we needed for a night. The staff we interacted with were lovely and willing to help us with any questions we had.

My agent told me there were no rooms available on the date of our arrival. However, this could’ve been some arrangement made with agents to allow this motel to keep itself in business. After all it was for only a night. Pros: Friendly staff, clean room with comfy beds. Microwave available too. Great eateries nearby. Cons: Sliding doors for entrance (felt really unsafe as there were no front doors/gates to the place), uncovered stairs, no assistants available to help carry bags - definitely a MOTEL.

Stayed here as part of a trip booked by our travel agent, wouldn’t have booked it ourselves. A really basic and somewhat outdated room. Avoided spending time in there as much as possible, just using it as a place to sleep. Quite a long distance walk into central Christchurch but is walkable nonetheless. Plenty of eateries close by. There was a nice receptionist when checking out.

Really enjoyed my stay here, it has easy parking, and is very easy to find, very close to the CBD and a good Westfield Shopping centre, lots of other places to eat out and have a meal. The staff were very helpful and happy, appreciate the efforts the housekeeping team went to to get our rooms ready, and to the Breakfast Team as well, under pressure from another group they still managed to look after us. The rooms are great, modern and very clean and comfortable with all that you will need. Hope I get to stay again.

Very well located hotel...very easy access to shopping centre. City and other areas of interest. We only had one complaint and that was no lift at the hotel. We had to lift our luggage up the stairs. Aside from that we very much enjoyed our stay

We only stayed a single night. Arriving mid-morning in a hired campervan we dropped off our bags before going to drop off the campervan and explore the city. When we returned early-evening (walking out of the city through the botanic gardens and park) they made us very welcome and explained where the local restaurants were located. The following morning they booked us a fixed-price taxi to the airport.
