Just returned from our trip away. We chose the Grosvenor on its good reviews and we weren't disappointed. Friendly welcome. Clean, nicely appointed rooms with trendy decor. Easy to walk around town or the bay from this hotel.
This place lived up to expectations. The price was icing on the cake - $130 for the family using 2 adjoining rooms(2 bathrooms, 2 tv's - perfect!). Dined at their restaurant for dinner and that was also very nice - with no surcharge for public holiday.
*only one negative thing was that the windows could have done with a good clean outside.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Grosvenor has a penchant for authentic and unique design. Although we have been called a boutique hotel and a hip hotel, we're not sure what that really means. We're a little modern, and a little bohemian. Featuring an on-site restaurant and bar, The Grosvenor Hotel Timaru offers boutique & funky accommodation. Our accommodation offers feature art by local and international artists, throughout the hotel. You might stay that The Grosvenor is Timaru's Home of Modern Art (HoMA). With 44 rooms which are eco-friendly, sustainable and have green elements, like vintage furniture, low-VOC paints and recycled materials throughout. All accommodation has an ensuite with hairdryer, ironing board & iron, tea & coffee making facilities, complimentary unlimited Wi-Fi and TV. Fridges are available on request. Guests can enjoy dining in our fantastic restaurant which is now a Timaru institution, TGB (The Grosvenor Bar) is located in a one of a kind historical building with dramatic high ceilings, nostalgic exposed brick and modern touches.
