“Great place!”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

Great place! Will definitely recommend to friends. It was like staying at a comfortable home, but with the privacy of a hotel. Ginny was a fantastic hostess throughout. Free wifi, and it works well too! Really clean and comfortable and great facilities. A wonderful stay - loved this place.

We stayed here in April of 2013 and loved it Ginny was awesome and so friendly. The room was wonderful, very comfortable and very clean. We had a wonderful time and the breakfast was terrific. Will stay here again on our next visit.

Ginny was very welcoming and friendly. Facilities were well furnished and felt like home. Our room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent that offered a large selection and costume orders if desired. It also offered an opportunity to meet people from many different parts of the world. Free unlimited WiFi is also a great bonus and laundry is reasonable. The Elizabeth Court is a well managed small place and reasonably priced. We wish that we could have stayed longer.

We stayed at Elizabeth Court for one night and really enjoyed our stay. Ginny was very welcoming and friendly, our room was clean and comfortable and the facilities were excellent. Free unlimited WiFi is also a great bonus and laundry is cheap. Breakfast is cereals and toast which is another excellent bonus within the price. You feel like you've been welcomed into Ginny's home.

Elizabeth Court is a wonderfully maintained B&B in Timaru. From first impression it was not difficult to see the hard work and dedication that had gone into running such a warm and welcoming little haven. A longer stay than possibly most I spent almost 5 days in Timaru and I am glad I picked this B&B as my rest spot. My room was a cosy double with an ensuite toilet and shared shower. The location of the property is perfect, a short walk into town, to shops and many sights. The free wi-fi was a bonus and aided in my daily planning to explore and make the most of the quiet yet lovely town. Ginny was a delight, so friendly and willing to help. The breakfast option I had was basic, but more than sufficed. I didn't leave the table feeling hungry. The shared kitchen which I used often was great for preparing evening meals. I cannot find fault with this B&B and I would gladly return to stay again. Definitely my choice of accommodation for a return trip to Timaru. Thank you Ginny and Kerry!

Ours was a last minute booking and Ginny made us feel very welcome. We booked the fully ensuited Queen room which included a cooked breakfast and cereals.
We were also provided with towels FOC for our day trip to the hot springs at Lake Tekapo.
This was the cheapest accomodation we had during our 14 day holiday traveling around the South Island.
The free WiFi and large range of Sky TV channels (Hubby suffers from insomnia and watches a lot of latenight TV) was also a huge bonus. Other more expensive places that we stayed at only had the free to air TV and either no WiFi or had to pay for it.
The only thing that put a dampener on our stay was the weather, but I believe Ginny had no control over that!

Very nice and clean; attractive bedrooms; a charming and friendly hostess. There is a kitchen guests can use to make meals, and free Wi-Fi!--a rarity in New Zealand. This was the least expensive lodging we had in New Zealand (including hostels), and one of the best.
