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...

Room was clean & tidy with basic kitchen facilities. The drive down into the motel was a bit steep but once parked outside room access was ok. Staff were very helpful with all relevant knowledge about the area. Had all the requirements of 3 star motel.

We received a very friendly welcome at this motel located right near the heart of Timaru. Our room was clean and had all the facilities we required for our 3 day stay. With the rate we paid for 3 of us, we could not and do not complain. We would stay here should we require accommodation in Timaru

Lovely friendly staff, great service, great pricing for what you got. Rooms, bathrooms etc all were bright and clean. Could do with a bit of paint here and there though. Great place to stay I recommend to anyone staying in timaru.

Travelling through South Island at peak tourist season and World Cup Cricket time without booking accommodations more than 24 hours ahead was almost like playing Russian Roulette. The Townhouse at Timaru was the first place we and i-Site could find between Queenstown and the east coast. Everything around Tekapo, Twizel, and places west of Christchurch was fully booked, were we...

We stayed one night in the King Room with spa on our first night on the South Island. The room was comfortable and spacious with a well equipped kitchen. Nice and quiet too. The place is a little dated. The spa worked well and all was lovely and clean. Good value for the price.
