Harbour View Motel
Reviewed 11 October 2013

Stayed for 3 nights. Great location for us, we walked into town easily for shopping and eating out. Walked around Caroline Bay and we found everything was within walking distance and very pleasant surroundings. We had a 1 bedroom unit which we found comfortable, clean and spacious! Happily go here again.

Room Tip: We had a 2nd level room, 1 bedroom with a sitting room, plenty of space.

We stayed one night in a studio room which was clean and super-comfortable. This motel is priced right, and we couldn't fault it, (and I have a very fussy husband!). Will definitely stay again, thanks so much.

Really pleasant place to stay. We had previously stayed at the BayViaduct Motel, but as this was booked out,we stayed here instead. It was a pleasure, really clean, close to town and owners very helpful and friendly. Will stay here again for sure when we are visiting relatives in Timaru.

This motel is new, and located on the main highway (like 90% of all accommodation in Timaru) so you need a car to pop into town for dinner. While it was perfect for an overnight stay, the title 'harbour view' is a bit of a misnomer, given that from our room we had a view of the carpark.

Very new, handy to restaurants, large spacious room which is excellent for the business traveller or holiday maker. It has plenty of carparking. I was able to arrange for a continetla breakfast to be delivered to my room (I didn't arrive until about 930pm) which was conveninet and very good value for money. Lovely people who were running the motel.

Room Tip: It is close to railway but the noise was not an issue

Newest motel in Timaru. Faultless. Lovely decor, top quality beds and linen, top location, great price, nice staff. We loved our stay here. On the main road but not noisy at all. Upstairs rooms have view of the harbour, and open out onto a nice little deck/walkway area which is roofed and carpeted, so quite sheltered.

What a find; slap bang on the main road easy walk to shopping restaurants beach and bars. Yes noisey outside but oh so quiet inside - the soundproofing is remarkable! Virtually new, large spacious rooms, lovely colours, superb quality bedding; an absolute pleasure to stay. Super staff, very reasonable tariff. Recommend AAA+.

Room Tip: Go for upstairs but nothing wrong with the down.
