“Pleasant view and pleasant people”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

This was our second visit to Pleasant View. The view from the king bed room is wonderful - sun rising over the water and at night the glittering lights across the bay. The sitting room is comfortable and you have all the privacy you need to feel at home, while Rosemary is on call if you need advice on eateries or walks. It is a place you feel instantly relaxed. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Choose the big room if you want a view over the water (the smaller room looks out to the courtyard...

Stayed here for one night on our way back to Christchurch. Received a warm welcome on arrival to this fantastic house which overlooks the bay. Very nice communal living room complete with sky tv, dining table, small kitchen area, dvd library and fabulous views of the sea. Our room was en suite and very comfortable and warm again with sea views out of the large windows. Breakfast included toast, cereals, nice selection of jams, fresh fruit and yoghurts followed by bacon, eggs and tomatoes - very tasty!

My husband & I stayed here in Feb 2014. We had a lovely downstairs bedroom with en-suite bathroom. There was a large guest lounge with tea & coffee making facilities & TV. Bedroom & lounge both had view of bay with harbour beyond. Good breakfast
(Gluten & dairy free for me) & friendly host. Spotlessly clean throughout.

Excellent room in conveniently situated B&B with good sea views. The breakfast was superb; the whole place was very clean and spacious. Rosemary was the perfect hostess. Easy walk to the restaurants in Timaru.

We had a wonderful three night stay at Pleasant View. Our hosts Rosemary and Ian made us very welcome. The whole place is spotlessly clean with everything any traveller would want. My husband and I stayed in the smaller of the two rooms which looked out onto a delightful suntrap of a courtyard and garden. The bathroom was more than adequate, with a nice large shower and fresh washed towels every day. The guest lounge is huge with two comfy sofas, large TV and a kitchenette with all you would need. Breakfast each day was a delight especially the home-made muesli and fresh cooked fruit although my husband preferred the full cooked plate.
Rosemary was very helpful with tips for trips and walks, a delightful and friendly host
We will certainly recommend Pleasant View to our friends and relatives and return next time we visit New Zealand.

We had a most welcoming and comfortable stay with Rosemary and Ian. Good location to walk into town and with lovely views from our double aspect king room. This is the one we would recommend. The lounge and breakfast facilities were fine for us with plenty of room and good self-service facilities. Breakfast was very good with lots of choice with a Nespresso coffee machine.

Room Tip: Book the king room which has double aspect views over the bay.

Would highly recommend a stay, with pleasant hosts and fantastic view to Timaru.
We thoroughly enjoyed the walk into Timaru and also the shorter walk around the small headland where Pleasant View is situated.
The best room is the one which overlooks the Bay but there is also a visitor lounge (fully equipped) which also overlooks the Bay.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the view!
