Reviewed April 16, 2014

We spent 3 nights in a one bedroom suite. Everything about this motel is great. It is super clean and the service is excellent especially the daily servicing of rooms. One of the best I have experienced. Parking is right outside the door. It is on a very busy road but the soundproofing is great so there is no disturbance. Good wifi signal too. Value for money is good as there are many other motels in Timaruwith the same pricing but not nearly as good.

Room Tip: Rooms 1 to 4 are ground floor so no stairs to carry your bags up.

The motel is on a busy road but extremely quite. In a good position close to a few very good restaurants. Only a new motel and the rooms are excellent. Good free wifi. Friendly staff. We had a room with a view but you don't really see a lot. Certainly would recommend this place.

So I accidentally had a accident and broke my foot and this place was amazing to help me out- the room is extremly spacious with a lounge and king bed in a separate room- both rooms have a TV and there is also a small kitchen! I was very impressed with this motel and if I am very here again I will stay here. Great value for money

Just before you get into town the motel is on the right. It is reasonably priced and comfortable. A short walk to a choice of 3 restaurants.
The glazing keeps out most the traffic noise. Also there is a lounge area on the street side which also keeps the sound out.
We were also happy to find free parking in the front The parking was well lit at night.
A large spa bath in the room ads luxury. The tv is modern but more channels would have been better.
There is also a mini kitchen with plunger coffee and a coffee machine in the reception if you want an espresso.

This place is well worth booking into if you are in Timaru

Lovely motel - stayed here for a work trip last year. Quiet for being on a main road and I liked that the bedroom was at the back of the unit to minimise any traffic noise. Clean and welcoming.

Caroline Bay and its park are right across the road so we had a lovely walk after dinner.

Stayed for 3 nights. Great location for us, we walked into town easily for shopping and eating out. Walked around Caroline Bay and we found everything was within walking distance and very pleasant surroundings. We had a 1 bedroom unit which we found comfortable, clean and spacious! Happily go here again.

Room Tip: We had a 2nd level room, 1 bedroom with a sitting room, plenty of space.

We stayed one night in a studio room which was clean and super-comfortable. This motel is priced right, and we couldn't fault it, (and I have a very fussy husband!). Will definitely stay again, thanks so much.
