Stayed here on our way back to Christchurch and were surprised by how neat, tidy and groovy our room was. The room was big and had a seperate kitchen.

We stayed here in April the rooms are clean, spacious and well equipped, with comfortable beds. Could do with a refurbishment. As previously stated the parking is very tight but overall would recommend this accommodation for an overnight stay.

Townhouse Motel is located close to central Timaru and the rooms are well priced. We were greeted by the very friendly owner/manager and directed to our studio unit. It was clean and ideal for our overnight stay.

The room was large and the bed large and comfortable. Shower good and easy to use. Would go back again. We were given good directions... More
