“Relaxing in Timaru”
Reviewed 8 January 2013

By far one of the friendliest motels I have ever stayed at. Barry and Lisa are great hosts and are very welcoming. The units are not the most modern but they are definitely the most relaxed and have kept me going back everytime for the past 2 years. When I have been arriving late or when it's been a chilly day I have arrived to find the heater on which is really nice. The units are spacious, clean, comfortable and tidy with great cooking facilities.

The hosts were really helpful and pleasant which made the whole experience really great. We booked via email which was promptly answered and options given. The unit was older but clean and tidy which is more important.Our unit had full cooking. Location is good but you do hear a bit of traffic noise as it is not double glazed. You can park right under your unit which was great during the rain. Pricing was very reasonable for the unit offered. Would recommend to any one travelling with family that need some space or travelling on a budget.

Room Tip: Ask for a unit back from the road. They are a little bit quieter than the front ones.

Barry and Lisa were very welcoming and helped us with all our questions. The room was clean and quite spacious, and has Wi-Fi availability. The location is slightly north of city centre, and within walking distance to several restaurants. Also within walking distance is a wonderful boardwalk along the beach and sand dunes.
