This motel is located right on SH1 on a hill and a slight bend. Traffic noise is quite awful until well after midnight and begins again around 5.30 am. To add insult to injury the sound proofing between rooms is inadequate because I was able to listen to the dialogue on the TV in the adjoining room until it was...

Stopped here for one night. Room was comfortable and with enough space for all our stuff. Good to park outside our room, though the place is tight for parking. Close to Caroline Bay and central Timaru. On the main road so easy to find,

Cheap and comfortable night spent here. Definitely dated, but everything was spotless and provided. Noticed the road noise quite a bit, no double glazing to reduce this. Worth considering this place if coming to Timaru. The kitchen was well stoked with enough stuff to cook a decent meal

Stayed here for a night while heading north. Selected because of reasonable price, but was pleasantly surprised by this. While a little dated, it was very comfortable, clean and tidy with good facilities. Great value for money and recommend.

Reading other reviews, I notice mention of traffic noise. Yes, this motel is on the main road (as are many other motels), but I did not have any issue with sleeping. I was in a one bedroomed apartment slightly back from the main road and came prepared with ear plugs, but did not need them. There are some units closer...

I stayed here 2 nights. Very friendly people and spotless rooms. The bed was very comfortable. There is a kitchen corner that looks like a desk - no separate table. There was an old microwave and a small but adequate fridge. The bathroom was not modern, but did the job. The room was quite small. For the price everything was...

My friend and I stayed for 3 nights in the school holidays with my son and his friend. We all had a room each and there is an extra bed in the lounge. The kitchen is well equipped, great to have a laundry and the added bonus is you have the same luxury as a motel with it being serviced....
