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.

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...

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.
