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 However it really needs to have a major reno, the rooms are really tired and out of date, I know this is not cheap but Timaru is screaming out for a decent Hotel.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

Ok place to stay overnight as far as room goes but surely when experiencing a polar blast in July you shouldn't have to put on your puffer jacket when you step out of your room into the zero temp unheated corridor.

Room was older and in need of upgrading but clean and tidy. Staff somewhat distant. Breakfast was a disappointment as half was cold. Asked if this could be fixed but same food returned exactly the same.

I have stayed here approximately 4 times in the past 6 months... The first time I swore that I wouldn't come back... the room was dated and horrible... The bathroom was that classy that there was a "grand master" painting over the bog . Couple of week later I back in Timaru and this time the room was 5 star... More

I stayed two nights on business. My spacious room was near the rear, which was great for me as it was quiet. Had the bed, a 2 person couch, TV and DVD player. The sea view rooms had balconies but probably a lot of noise as well, the hotel being on state highway 1. Lighting was poor- 2 out of... More

Mould in bathroom and sheets were dirty asked for help in the room as sofa bed was filthy a lady came and just brushed the dirt away! Really not good enough. Had a disagreement about mini bar and was accused of eating something when I did not. I would suggest that you take a photo.
