Reviewed 27 February 2014

From the outside I was very doubtful about the booking here
But our stay was lovely
On the main road but very very quiet.
Parking a bit tight but that is the limitations of the site.
Room was very comfortable and spacious
Beds super comfortable
Plenty of hot water
Didnt ask for the newspaper but was given it anyway which was a bonus.

Townhouse Motel is located close to central Timaru and the rooms are well priced. We were greeted by the very friendly owner/manager and directed to our studio unit. It was clean and ideal for our overnight stay.

Very clean and tidy and one of the less expensive motels we stayed at. Owners very friendly and it was the first place and last place we were asked if we would like a paper. The room was large and the bed large and comfortable. Shower good and easy to use. Would go back again.
We were given good directions to find a nice meal.

Room Tip: Choose a room furtherest from road.

Stayed here for a night,the room is clean but the whole interior needs upgrading ,looks very tired and old, kitchen utensils are mis match and the blue color mug is not very apetising when drinking your coffee.Another thing also is the parking,the space is not big enough when all the cars are park outside and someone will go out its a bit tricky.the host is friendly and helpful the free wifi is a bonus.

Very clean, comfy, quiet and welcoming, and the spa bath was an unexpected surprise. There is free wifi limited to a fairly small download amount.

If we were going to be in the area again, we'd seriously consider going back! It was also nice to have a kitchenette that was separate to the room - had we actually done any cooking (instead of spending 3 hours in the spa bath!) it would have been much appreciated that the cooking smells didn't come into the sleeping area.

Room Tip: We were down the bottom of the hill opposite the reception and it was v quiet.
