“Excellent Place to Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2011

Stayed in an Executive Spa Suite. The Spa bath was very relaxing after a day of driving.The room was clean and comfortable. Carl was extremely friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again if we ever retuned to New Zealand. Was a little distance to restaurants so you need a car.

Our 2 bedroom unit for 2 couples did not suit - one room had single beds - otherwise the unit was fine and clean. You need a car to stay there. The owners were most helpful and their recommendation for a restaurant (Benny's Again) was spot on. The food was great and well priced.

The spa room we had was a fantastic size with lots of room. They had lots of extras like more than 1 towel per person, decent milk, handwash and a big tv. The service was outstanding, they were very helpful with everything and recommended to great things to do and places to eat in Timaru. They also had a internet kiosk which was very cheap and easy to access.
