Motel is a little dated as per other reviews but it's comfortable enough, a reasonable price, and the owners are very friendly.If you're looking for somewhere cost effective to stay for a night or two then this is fine.

Stayed one night when we had a weekend in Timaru. Was going to book the motel we stayed at last time we were in Timaru, but the price had gone up too much and this one was a lot cheaper. We booked a studio unit, #7.
A bit dated, but perfectly adequate and filled all our needs. Comfortable bed, clean unit, free wi-fi. Very efficient heater in the living area, which we needed as it was a very cold night!
Driveway into the motel is very steep - Timaru is quite hilly in parts.
Conveniently located. Five minute walk to KFC, McDonalds, PaknSave supermarket. Dairy across the road.
We would use this motel again.

Just stopped here overnight when travelling from Christchurch to Dunedin. It was one of the least expensive motels on a 5 week tour of NZ and therefore excellent value. The unit was quite spacious and well-equipped, with a lovely big and clean bathroom. You can be sure of a warm welcome, with a friendly and very helpful host who goes out of his way to give advice, (such as not going through the restaurant at Moeraki or they'll charge you to access the beach to see the boulders!). Timaru was not that exciting but it's a good stop on the way down the coast.

Room Tip: We just had a studio which was fine for us. There are larger apartments available.

Passing through Timaru on our way back from Queenstown. Very friendly reception staff. The lady with purple hair was hilarious. Great Wifi connection for catching up on work. Would definitely recommend if you're looking for a comfortable place to stopover.

Huge apartment rented for the night here. Two bedrooms with a bedroom downstairs with two single beds, and single bed under the stairs, and bed upstairs in the lounge and a queen bed in the upstairs bedroom. Bathroom had a spa bath and separate shower. Full kitchen, and a large TV with Sky. Had a carport for the car as well. Parking was very tight, and the driveway rather steep. Place was rather dated, but afforded brilliant value for money. Friendly people and close to Timarus supermarkets and Caroline Bay

The staff was not very welcoming contrary to what we experienced so far in NZ. No DVD player (though mentionned in the booking).
The place is clean but a bit noisy (close to the road).

5 mn drive to city center, very convenient.
