“Nice place”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

We stopped for one night at this motel on our way further south. We hadn't pre booked a room but that didn't pose a problem. The host was very friendly and let us choice our own room from those available. We didn't have a separate bedroom but the room was large and well equipped. Cheap WiFi.

Overall this was really good value for money, we normally go for something a little more modern however the 1 bed apartment we had was really spacious, it was clean and tidy. The bed was really comfortable and we were given a really good recommendation of Bennys Again to eat we even got a card which gave us a 10% discount and if I am in Timaru again I would most definitely stay there again.

We stayed here for our daughters wedding, couldn't have asked for better accommodation or hosts, we were checked in by Janet who made sure we had everything we needed. We had two two bedroom units as our other daughter was over from Perth with 3 young children, portacot and highchair were set up in room ready. Beautiful clean units, staff very friendly and obliging. Best accommodation in Timaru as far as we are concerned. Would definitely stay there again and highly recommend to everyone!!!! Thank you so much for making our stay such a memorable and happy one!

stayed for one night at the beginning of our stay in south island. Very friendly welcome, the room was very comfortable, particularly liked the large leather armchairs which were great to sit in. Good to have such a lot of space in a motel room as well as good cooking faacilities.

Room Tip: lovely hotel but quite a walk into town - no problem if you have a car.

We stayed for three nights in a two bedroom, ground floor unit. Carl greeted us at reception and quickly checked us in and showed us to the unit. When I had booked by phone a few weeks earlier, I had requested a highchair and portacot (both free of charge), which were set up in the unit. The unit was clean and comfortable with good proportioned bedrooms, bathroom and living area. The bathroom had a corner spa bath (which my daughters loved) and separate shower. The only negative of any sort was that the kitchen was a bit small with little space to put groceries (but as we had two small children, we probably had more food than the normal guests). The whole motel was quiet with very minimal noise from other guests and no traffic noise whatsoever.

We had a great time in Timaru and would not hesitate recommending this motor lodge to anyone. Lovely place to stay and Carl was very helpful offering places to eat, getting a newspaper for us (when we'd forgotten to request one) and providing a bit of free internet access. It was very reasonably priced for what you get and we will stay there again.

We stayed at this motel for two nights recently & we are most impressed with it. In fact if we were visiting Timaru again I wouldn't consider going anywhere else. The standard of hygiene in every way was top shelf, the bed was comfortable, with electric blankets & plenty of other covers available & the spa bath was just wonderful to relax in at the end of a busy day. We had car parking at the door, & our room was very spacious too, with 2 couches & plenty of lighting, a good wall heater & the kitchenette was very well equipped, even including a pair of scissors. When I spoke to Janet on the phone to make the booking she was incredibly helpful, caring & concerned that we were given just the right room for us, & it's these little touches that made our visit so special. The ladies who cleaned the room were also very friendly & pleasant, I wonder which one of them makes the towels into cute rosettes, something more that made our visit memorable. Thank you Carl & Janet it was a pleasure to stay at your motel.
