“A friendly comfortably stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2012

I stayed here when first arrived in Timaru and found it to be one of the friendliest, comfortable and cleanest guesthouses i have been in. After travelling for months it was lovely to stay in a "home away from home". Ginny's friendly welcoming manner was great and the room was comfortable, clean and spacious with more than adequate storage. Awesome breakfast, i had continental but great selection of both cooked and continental. Location also great with a 5 mins (tops) walk into the centre of the town. I would defo recommend this place and was actually sad to leave as met some really nice folk whilst relaxing in the communal lounge area.

Probably more like a boarding house (15 rooms) than a B & B. Room was cosy and clean but lacked wardrobe. Comfortable bed and average water pressure.
Quite noisy when other guests come in late at night, early hours of the morning. Ginny is very friendly and welcoming. Large common room with big TV for relaxing.
Good location and 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk to centre of town.

Was lovely to have you stay. It is nice to be so close to town that you can wander to the main shopping precinct without having to take the car and visit the art gallery, museum,caroline Bay and Movie theatre all within 1.5km. We look forward to seeing you again if you are back this way even if it is to say hello and thankyou for your review.

My husband and I stayed at this B&B on our way south. The hostess, Ginny, was very friendly. There was a good range for breakfast. Free wifi worked well in our room. Ginny gave excellent suggestions for where to go for dinner. The room was very clean and tidy; and the bed was comfortable. Our room had an ensuite bathroom.

The one downside, as is typical in NZ houses, was that the room was a bit cold. Though we had a fan heater and the nightstore heater was on, so the room was nice and warm in the morning :-).

I'd stay there again.
