Guest Reviews

Stayed 2 weeks for work and brought my family along. Staff were very friendly and helpful and made the stay for my wife and 2 babies very comfortable while I was working. I don’t think you could get better service in timaru, and the rooms are warm, comfortable, clean and equipped with everything you need.


This motel was a port in a storm for us as we had booked somewhere else in Timaru which was highly unsatisfactory. The two bedroom unit we had was well worth the money. Warm & cosy & well organised. The shower was a bit small. You could actually live in the unit as it is big & has lazy boy chairs! A good heater also. We spent five nights here & we have no complaints at all. We even got a paper delivered each morning for free! The only drawback was that you have to pay $10 to use the laundry facilities! No washing lines either. Apart from that though we found the units exceptionally comfortable.

We got an excellent off season rate for a winter sporting event. The staff were friendly and obliging. The room was adequate for 6 of us but could do with some modernization. However as price and convenience were what we wanted – great option for us.


On booking offered us a room that meet our needs. On arrival very friendly welcome, could have not been more helpful. Very clean and well appointed, would certainly stay again. One of the best and cleanest motels we have stayed at in the last 25 years.


Great service, friendly knowledgeable staff. Stayed here overnight. The room was a double & was clean & comfortable for my short stay. Sky tv and free wifi in the rooms was s bonus! Staff made a good suggestion for breakfast (Purple Lizard).
