Only motel with no vacancy on a cold winter evening, I took a risk at $95 for the night. This is a very dated motel, the welcome I got at reception was fantastic, however once I settled in I found this to be an expensive nights accommodation, I guess the old saying is you get what you pay for.

Clean but old and dated needs a serious face lift. The thing that annoyed us the most was that they advertised free wi fi. What a laugh it was one of the most expensive exercises paying for it and they had the speed ramped up. Change your sign. We wont be back.

We chose this place at the last minute for a quick stopover en-route to Christchurch. There wasn't many rooms left in Timaru that night so we just grabbed what was available. The family room we got was very comfortable, well equipped and quiet, nothing exceptional, but we were very happy for the price we paid and the owners were very... More

The Homestead Lodge is a great little place to stay. It has everything you need and is close to everything that Timaru has to offer. The hosts are super friendly and if you are travelling on business they will give you enough wifi to cover you usage.

The couch was sagging when you sat on it the noise from the road traffic made it hard to sleep and woke you up early and once you parked your car the space was limited in which to turn around or you just had to back out onto the road into traffic. The room was clean and warm but the... More

Stayed one night here on our way to Tekapo. The units are dated, but tidy. Thought $110 per night (without a kitchen) was a little OTT, especially when we compared it to the great motel unit we got at Oamaru the next night for $115. We were well back from the road but our sleep was disturbed all night by... More

We stayed here enroute to wanaka from hokitika. It was a last minute decision due to the closure of haast pass, and this place was the cheapest available with cooking facilities. The place is ok. Room looks a little tired but importantly, it was clean. Good location. The owner was a bit reserved and quiet and not the cheerful welcoming... More

I use this motel when I am in Timaru for a sport I am involved in. It is easy to get to and although I have a large vehicle and trailer there is no problem with parking. The units are standard and very clean, and although on the main highway are reasonably quiet. I sleep well and the breakfast which... More

En route to Christ Church we made an unplanned stop in Timaru. We went to the information bureau who were extremely helpful in finding us accommodation to suit our pocket and personal requirements. Our hostess Fay was such a friendly and helpful person. The motel is Centrally located, a little old fashioned but stocked with tea and coffee making facilities,... More
