Excellent hosts. All the amenities you could want. Good breakfast. Offered continental or cooked. Walking distance to town centre. Can highly recommend this establishment. Good value for money.

We stayed for one night en route to Dunedin.
Accommodation is on the ground floor of this modern home. Our bedroom was large with two windows giving views over the bay. It was very comfortable and clean.
There is a large guest lounge with comfortable furniture, TV, dining table and a small kitchen area. There are good views of the bay from this room,
Rosemary and Ian are very friendly without being intrusive. They served a good breakfast.

We had a wonderful couple of nights staying at Pleasant View. Beautiful accommodation and location. The hosts were so obliging and only too happy to do anything for us. We had the best scrambled eggs there!! Would highly recommend Pleasant View as a place to stay without hesitation.

Room Tip: There are two rooms. Choose the larger room with the views.

We stayed at Pleasant View B&B on our way from Dunedin to Christchurch with our son (5). Rosemary led us into her home and we instantyly felt at home: we had the larger room looking into the bay with ensuite, lovely bathroom. The showers are just marvelous. The roller blinds do a good job to let you sleep well at night, so do the comfortable beds. For our son, they just rolled in a bed into our room, but still you had some space to move. The place is clean.

The whole home is very stylish, tastefully furnished and decorated. You share a large lounge room with Sky TV and a nice selection of DVDs for children and adults. You may watch DVDs in your room as well, but there are also lots of outdoor activities in Timaru.

Breakfast is also being served in this lounge room which has an air conditioning for both heating and cooling. Further on, you find a microwave oven, tea and coffee facilities in there as well as a small fridge. Breakfast is lovely with home-made marmelade, apricots and a yummy cooked breakfast if you like. In addition, you can enjoy a nice Nespresso coffee!

Rosemary and Ian are very helpful and nice hosts, who respect your privacy and are not intrusive at all.

We would have loved to stay for another night, but had to move on!

Room Tip: When traveling with one kid the larger room is a good choice!

The hosts are very nice and the setting is great. We had a separate bedroom and a shared lounge/cooking area. We met very interesting people in the other unit. The location is perfect for bay watching and easy to get out to the town by car. Everything we needed was there and we brought home takeout for a pleasant dinner. Also, the host's breakfasts were superb.

Room Tip: No, only two rooms and both are fine

New home a short walk away from town. We booked the smaller of the 2 rooms and it was quite small. TV is only offered in the common room, but you can watch dvd's in your room if you need to. Our room was very clean and the shower pressure second to none. We haven't enjoyed a hot shower like that in years! Breakfast was basic, but did the trick. Good pick for an overnight on the way elsewhere. No worry about sleeping in as the blinds let most of the light in. We didn't have to worry about a late check out here. The host are very pleasant people and seem to enjoy having a B&B.

thanks for an awesome stay in Timaru. As a frequent traveller for work and leisure, I can say this is one of my favourite places to stay. Great views, modern and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was fantastic and the shortbread biscuits with the nespresso coffee was a nice touch. Rosemary dropped us to the wedding which just shows how nice the hosts are. Nice walk down to the beach etc. I will be back staying here for sure when next stopping in Timaru.
