Stayed one night when we had a weekend in Timaru. Was going to book the motel we stayed at last time we were in Timaru, but the price had gone up too much and this one was a lot cheaper. We booked a studio unit, #7. A bit dated, but perfectly adequate and filled all our needs. Comfortable bed, clean...

Just stopped here overnight when travelling from Christchurch to Dunedin. It was one of the least expensive motels on a 5 week tour of NZ and therefore excellent value. The unit was quite spacious and well-equipped, with a lovely big and clean bathroom. You can be sure of a warm welcome, with a friendly and very helpful host who goes...

Passing through Timaru on our way back from Queenstown. Very friendly reception staff. The lady with purple hair was hilarious. Great Wifi connection for catching up on work. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for a comfortable place to stopover.

The staff was not very welcoming contrary to what we experienced so far in NZ. No DVD player (though mentionned in the booking). The place is clean but a bit noisy (close to the road). 5 mn drive to city center, very convenient.

We had a very pleasant stay here. Unit was very clean and spacious. It is an older style, but had been painted and modernised. Friendly and helpful staff. Even though on the main road was very quiet. The only issue for some people could be the steep drive down to the units which also makes parking interesting. We would definitely...

A motel in a great location, clean and tidy. Outstanding was the service received, requested and was provided extra chairs & cultery for visiting family meal. Best of all was the surprise chives & garlic with a note left thoughtfully on the kitchen bench when we went to the local supermarket! A rather nice touch which was greatly appreciated. Would...

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. We were picked up from the bus stop and because our room was not quite ready (we arrived before lunch time) we were provided with refreshments while we waited. The room was nicely furnished and as we required assistance with some things we just asked and they provided. Nothing...
