On moving to timaru, our flat wasn't ready, so we stayed at the Ashley for a week. Carl and his family were amazing hosts and made sure we had a lovely stay. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We will recommend our friends and family stay here when visiting!

Stayed here for two weeks in 2013. Great room and staff. Very friendly and accommodating. Laundry available too which was great. Cleaners did a great job. Location is good but on main road. Got lots of coupons to local restaurants which was nice.

Booked on-line - no problems. Had a unit at the rear of the complex so no trouble with road noise. When I arrived I was given helpful advice on where to eat including a 10% discount card for Bennies Again. I also asked if there was a bucket or outside tap so I could clean some waders and wading boots.... More

Basic room with kitchenette on ground floor. Everything worked properly and was well-appointed. Comfortable bed. Hosts were very helpful. Not particularly modern but not dated either. Our unit was right on Highway 1, so road noise was noticeable. If you can, ask for a room off the highway.

You can have breakfast, cooked or continental delivered to your room. Reasonable cost of 160 NZ dollars. Free wifi (500Mb) for up to three devices. A little noisy from trucks on route 1. Would be a bit more... More

Our family of four stayed at the Asure Ashley Timaru, King Street for two nights last weekend. We stayed in a two bedroom unit with spa bath (unit 1). It was very clean, modernish and comfortable. A nice surprise was the units are serviced. Hosts are very welcoming and helpful. Dairy and garage nearby. Would stay here again and recommend.
