“Timaru panorama motor lodge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Excellent place, great price. The views from our room were unmatched. The view includes beach, palm trees and snow capped mountains. The owner is very helpful with local information. Close to beach and downtown Timaru. Several great restaurants close by.

Room 19 was 10 metres away from the main State Highway in New Zealand. There was no buffering from the noise! Nor any ear plugs given. I might as well have slept outside. Do not except any of their rooms on the Western side of the complex. On the plus side, it was a close to the town.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms near the State Highway.

This motel is just above Caroline Bay and a handy walk to town. It is spacious and was very clean and comfortable, the spa bath was a hit after two days of sport as well! We have booked in again for next year. Also right next door to Monteiths Restaurant which is an excellent restaurant.

Room Tip: Possibly number 11, we were in 12 which was beside a carpark which got used by boy racers...I didn...

Booked access unit which had all the necessary features for someone with mobility problems. Plenty of heating, good kitchen and bathroom facilities and comfortable bed. Friendly, helpful hosts and being able to use laundry facilities free of charge was a bonus. Good parking right outside unit. Very handy to restaurants and shops. We enjoyed our stay!

We stayed here last year for a family 'do'. This time it was my Dad's 80th birthday. Nothing has changed. Great rooms. Clean and today. Super convenient to the beautiful Caroline Bay and to the shops.

We stayed at the Panorama Motor Lodge for the first time in December 2012 and were incredibility impressed by the fantastic location..... walk across the road to Caroline bay, down the road to the main shopping center and a good variety of great restaurants and cafes, all within walking distance.The one bedroom unit we stayed in was clean, modern & spacious and had fantastic views over the bay with the hosts being very friendly and helpful and I also thought the room was good value for money. Timaru is an underrated holiday destination in my opinion and we will definitely be back to Timaru and the Panorama Motor Lodge.

This is a great place to stay. Good location on the Bay hill close to good restaurants, central Timaru and Caroline Bay. The walks on Caroline Bay are beautiful regardless of the time of year. The motel is lovely and the people running it go out of their way to make sure you are well looked after and you enjoy your stay
