Was a little dissapointed. Food and atmosphere was great in the restaurant but the rooms could do with a little update, especially the bathrooms. Was clean, but a bit noisy at night which made sleep difficult. Views were great over the harbour!

Historic building in the town centre, you could not ask for a better location. For the price great value! Checkin was fast, nothing out of the ordinary. Old historic lift was a novelty, interesting to work out how to operate it. Unusual layout of corridors...More

I looked forward to this stay seeing the rooms on the website and was not disappointed. The rooms are smart, clean and comfortable. It was a really pleasant experience. Had a meal in-house which was really good also.

The Grosvenor has a penchant for authentic and unique design. Although we have been called a boutique hotel and a hip hotel, we're not sure what that really means. We're a little modern, and a little bohemian. More Featuring an on-site restaurant and bar, The Grosvenor Hotel Timaru offers boutique & funky accommodation. Our accommodation offers feature art by local and international artists, throughout the hotel. You might stay that The Grosvenor is Timaru's Home of Modern Art (HoMA). With 44 rooms which are eco-friendly, sustainable and have green elements, like vintage furniture, low-VOC paints and recycled materials throughout. All accommodation has an ensuite with hairdryer, ironing board & iron, tea & coffee making facilities, complimentary unlimited Wi-Fi and TV. Fridges are available on request. Guests can enjoy dining in our fantastic restaurant which is now a Timaru institution, TGB (The Grosvenor Bar) is located in a one of a kind historical building with dramatic high ceilings, nostalgic exposed brick and modern touches. Whet your appetite with local, regional and international beers and cider. Then enjoy innovative tavern fare including traditional roasts, urban burgers, fresh salads, wrap, artisanal sandwiches and many other Kiwi favorites. Less
