We were in town for a party and needed a clean room to stay in for the night. A good choice was the Comfort Hotel. We were handy to restaurants and bars before the party and they have Harry's bar on site for a pre-party drink. The host's were very welcoming and even when we walked in with a doggy... More

The staff are very nice and answered all of our questions and provided delicious catering. The location of the hotel is excellent only 200m from Caroline Bay which in my view seems to be where all the attractions in Timaru are (Pools, Beach and Amphitheater). The hotel is also close to the town centre and essential shops are close by.... More

Booked this place as a stop over on way to Dunedin. Needed a clean cheap but comfortable room for 2 adults and one child. We were well received when we arrived (son delighted with free wi-fi) and then had a very comfortable stay for the night. Could not complain at all and will use again.

Had a clean and quite big room. No five stars because back doors Open over Night. So it made an unsafe Impression to us. But for One Night it's a quite good Place to stay in timaru.... Timaru itself is a little pretty town on the Route to christchurch

The price is comparable to far superior accommodation in Timaru. Stained carpet, pilled and slightly grubby looking throw on the bed, the chairs are peeling leather-look chairs and are so tatty they should have been taken from the room, the heater is broken and looks as though it has nearly set the wall on fire, wall lights have been replaced...

Location handy to the bustling Timaru CBD! We had a special group deal and the owner was very supportive of our group. My room was clean and tidy, bed medium firm and comfortable. I noted the carpet was a bit tired and although bathroom appeared recently refurbished, the shower head was split/broken and sprayed water everywhere, (some did make it... More

The staff were nice and helpful and were keen to point out that they have just taken over and in the process of updating and renovating the hotel. Our room was over looking the road / car park and was incredibly noisy as the road was close by and all night you could hear boy racers and heavy trucks going... More

I was here 6 months ago but this time there are new managers and they are making a huge difference. I'm a poor sleeper so need a quiet room, and they changed as soon as I requested this and it was soooo quiet! Bliss. Bed was comfy and shower was simply one of the best I have ever had -... More

The Benvenue.....Lets be clear, the staff were really friendly and the rooms were clean and tidy. However it really needs to have a major reno, the rooms are really tired and out of date, I know this is not cheap but Timaru is screaming out for a decent Hotel. Breakfast was okay and the service again was really friendly
