It is the bustling hub of the district, at the centre of a compact but amazingly varied region. People stop and stay and are surprised at what they find. Called New Zealand’s granary and a destination in it’s own right, combining modern city facilities and vibrancy with rural town friendliness.  You’ll appreciate the high quality shopping precincts, eclectic cafes and restaurants, craft shops, nationally recognised art gallery and museum and many other hidden treasures.

Ashburton has retained solid, old-fashioned values. Here you will find the most amazing “we can do it” attitude that is reflected in many aspects of life and what’s been achieved for the town both in the quality of life and commercial success.

Lake Hood, on the outskirts of Ashburton, is a paradise for water enthusiasts with a wide range of activities including swimming, yachting, boating and waterskiing. Enjoy coffee or dining at the lakefront restaurant and watch the world go by.

Top class sporting facilities cater for all codes and include an international-standard hockey pitch, superb tennis courts and challenging golf courses. Because this is such a good place to live, to bring up the kids, it’s also a great place to visit and soak up New Zealand the way we would still like it to be and there’s plenty to see and do.

TripAdvisor Feedback 

“Excellent Motel”
This motel is first class, extremely clean and the couple that run the establishment are very professional and friendly. We only had one night but wished we could have stayed a week. We were made very welcome on arrival and before our evening meal we enjoyed a swim in the small pool which was very welcome after a day of driving! The unit we had was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The kitchen was immaculate and provided every implement anyone could possibly need to cook with. A most enjoyable stay and if we return to the area we will definitely stay longer.

“Wonderful stay!”
I found my recent stay at this motel very enjoyable. I was warmly welcomed by the owners little black Schnauzer, Rose, at check in and everything was ready for me. The room (Unit 15) was immaculate, the bed was very comfortable and I found the huge spa bath the perfect way to end the day. It was also very relaxing and quiet being able to sit next to the pool in the sun and read a book – absolute bliss!

The owners were very welcoming and helpful when I was asking them questions about what there was to see and do in Ashburton – they know the area very well an I would highly recommend.
