Timaru suffers from a lack of upmarket accommodation and it was a delight to stay at Glendeer Lodge. The room was large as was the bed and bathroom, and there were nice touches such as many cushions on the bed. The owners, Jude and Paul, were professional and very friendly. The location is perfect as it is close to Timaru... More

We booked the entire accommodation for our professional and teenage/adult family of 8 for two nights for the grand sum of $1214. It was a late booking due to our earlier accommodation plans falling through, and Glendeer had no bookings. We were guaranteed privacy as a family with sole use of the lodge, and told that the owners living quarters... More

This B&B is the best we ever had. Jude and Paul are great host, friendly and their house is amazing. Our room was so cozy and romantic. The place is near Timaru and also near the beach and the touristic lakes and mountains. The best place you can chose for your holidays.
