Good Location near town and supermarkets. Unit was surprisingly modern and spacious, was not expecting this from photos. Weird bathroom setup however, with the sink in the bedroom, and the shower/toilet in a small cubicle adjoining the bedroom. Enough equipment in the kitchen to make a decent meal if need be. Was worried about the road noise, being that it...

Very nice older style motel. A bit of road noise and compact unit but everything was clean and worked! And the bed was comfy. Good shower pressure but don't flush the loo when you are on the shower :-) I'll come back here next time.

Nice and clean motel, very friendly staff. A bit noisy as its closer to the road. The decor and room was very neat and tidy, no peeling paint or anything. Plenty of parking. Entrance is not on the main road but around the corner. Thanks for the stay.

Stayed for one night. Check-in was fairly quick, room was clean but small. However, our room was located on the second floor and there were no lifts. We had to carry our luggages up a flight of stairs to our room. Wifi was available but connection was unstable. Toilet was small - similar to Japan toilet! As the motel was...

This was the studio unit which we do not advertise on-line but keep available for when accommodation in Timaru is at a peak. At the time when someone enquires about a room I explained that I only have a studio unit with a king size bed, ensuite and tea and coffee making facilities available - that is exactly the room...

Not a 4 star motel. Security issues with loud, aggressive and drunk guests who drank outside our door. We felt very unsafe staying there despite it being recommended through QANTAS hotels. QANTAS hotels offered a refund but all we wanted was safety and a quite night. Be careful, fellow travellers. It was a very disappointing experience when arriving from Australia.
