We stayed at this motel for two nights recently & we are most impressed with it. In fact if we were visiting Timaru again I wouldn't consider going anywhere else. The standard of hygiene in every way was top shelf, the bed was comfortable, with electric blankets & plenty of other covers available & the spa bath was just wonderful to relax in at the end of a busy day. We had car parking at the door, & our room was very spacious too, with 2 couches & plenty of lighting, a good wall heater & the kitchenette was very well equipped, even including a pair of scissors. When I spoke to Janet on the phone to make the booking she was incredibly helpful, caring & concerned that we were given just the right room for us, & it's these little touches that made our visit so special. The ladies who cleaned the room were also very friendly & pleasant, I wonder which one of them makes the towels into cute rosettes, something more that made our visit memorable. Thank you Carl & Janet it was a pleasure to stay at your motel.

We found the cleanliness immaculate, furnishings, curtains etc all in top order and of a very high standard. This was the highest standard of any motel/hotel we have stayed in on our travels. Host very friendly and helpful. Would definately stay here again when in Timaru.

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.
