Great place, beautiful views. Excellent reliable wifi. So many moteliers dont realise the importance of wifi to guests. Only reason not a 5 star is that we had problems with our plumbing and couldnt have a spa bath which i was looking forward to. May i suggest a more reliable plumber. Great ppl and fantastic service. Well done guys

Very clean and very tidy although an older Motel. Staff most helpful and nothing is a bother. A main road complex but the traffic noise was not very noticeable once one had settled in ... Big comfy bed allowed a wonderful nights sleep ....

Very conveniently located on the main road into Timaru (coming from the north). We thought it might have been too noisy, but were pleasantly surprised. The bed was very comfortable and we had a great night's sleep. The unit was clean and well equipped.
Pak,n,Save was a short walk down the road, as was a selection of Indian, Chinese and NZ takeaway options. Sky TV allowed us to watch the rugby that night.
We really appreciated the effort the owners had made to make recycling easy. There were bins for ordinary rubbish, recycling glass and plastics, and also a bin for compostible waste.
Our host was very friendly and informative, and we would definitely stay here again when travelling around this area.

This is a single level motel with convenient car parking out the front of the unit. The complex is not new, but appears to have been renovated not to long ago. Our room had a small kitchenette with the basics tea coffee making facilities. In keeping with most motels in Timaru it is on the main road and so there is road noise. Whilst this was noticeable, but not unbearable during the evening, it did not impact on getting to sleep or sleeping through the night. We did find that the room was a little on the cold side, despite the room heater. It was clean, tidy and had free wifi. The staff, although not the owners, were helpful and friendly. Overall for an overnight stop and for the price it was good value.

Out of town location a good 25mn brisk walk to nicer restaurants. Located on the main arterial road with a traffic light 50m down the road = very noisy. The motel is functional a bit outdated and pricey considering the product and location. However the reception staff is very helpful and friendly..
Wifi is unstable particularly with FaceTime calls and WhatsApp. I reckon within this price range you could do better elsewhere.

Stayed: March 2017
