This was our first night in New Zealand, we chose the Darfield Motel as it was less than an hours drive from Christchurch airport where we arrived mid afternoon and an ideal stopping point for our drive down the west coast the next day.
Very pleasant greeting at reception, advised of our passwords for the free Wi-Fi, given some very helpful advice on nearby eating establishments (which we took and had an excellent meal at the nearby restaurant/pub.)
We were also offered some help if we needed to take our bags up the stairs to our second floor room.
The room was spacious, quite modern and spotless and fitted out with a kitchenette.
Car parking was excellent.
We were very happy with the motel and reception, can recommend staying here with confidence.MichaelTasmaniaMay 2017
After driving across Arthur’s Pass, this is a great place to stop for the night. The owner, was incredible. We were going to be late getting in, and he was on top of all the communications and even had our keys taped to our rooms with our names on them. The rooms were very spacious, clean, and very comfortable. There is a kitchenette in the room. There is on-site laundry as well. We’d definitely stay here again!Cary North CarolinaApril 2017

I booked this motel for a business trip to the area. The owner, Janine, was warm and friendly on arrival and very helpful, recommending local places to eat dinner. My room had been heated and was impeccably clean. The bed was very comfortable. The good quality toiletries were a nice touch, you don’t usually find in motels. I would heartily recommend the Darfield Motel for a stay in this small friendly village.YvonneAucklandOctober 2016
