Pleasant View B & B was great. We had been staying in hotels and decided to try this B & B at Timaru. Easy to find with assistance of Google Maps and close to restaurants etc if you have your own transport. Facilities are good and very clean and comfortable. Host were friendly and gave a number of recommendations for... More

I had done a lot of research on accommodation in Timaru and decided Pleasant View B&B looked like the best option. After arriving and meeting Rosemary I knew my research had paid off! She was so lovely and the accommodation felt like being at home, it was clean and modern and comfortable. In the morning we had a lovely breakfast... More

A lovely B & B clean, modern, and an easy walk into town to dine. It has a large communal room with panoramic Windows. Crisp clean bedding and a very comfortable bed. Then a tasty cooked breakfast.Hard to find fault.

We stayed here for one night. This B&B has 2 guest rooms, one queen and one king. There was another couple staying the night we stayed so only the queen room was available. The room wasn't large but we did have our own ensuite. The room and bathroom were very clean and the bed comfortable. Our room looked out to... More

The view is pleasant high above a Caroline bay, the only down side is the port on the fare side. Nice walk along the bay. Room was small. Shared tea / coffee and cooking facilities. Breakfast was good.

My wife and I stayed at Pleasant view for a night in early May. The host was welcoming and our room had double aspect views out over the bay. The place was spotless, the lounge area and its ammenities were very good and the cooked breakfast was great. All in all it offered reasonable value for money taking 2 cooked... More

We stayed here for a night after a short drive (2 hours) from Christchurch airport. Timaru is a good stop between Christchurch and Dunedin. Rosemary was an excellent host. She welcomed us by the door the moment we pulled onto the driveway, showed us the shared dining/living area and our bathroom. Our king room (water view) was nice. It has... More

This consists of a very modern two storey house on a cliff looking back across a small bay and the Port area towards the commercial part of the town. I wouldn't call them "views to die for" as some have but they are interesting. The room we had took in these views on the ground floor and was pretty large... More

I stayed here last night and was very impressed with this B & B. I felt very looked after in a very clean and tidy environment, fantastic hosts who even opened up their garage for me to store my Harley Davidson in overnight. Thanks for a really great place to stay.

This is a first class B&B run by caring owners who have pitched it absolutely right. Spotlessly clean throughout and well presented. Lovely room with "shared" lounge facilities but not a problem as we were traveling with friends and took over the place. Good advice for where to eat and the breakfast was simply magnificent. Well done - you deserve... More
