Sefton homestay was excellent! my partner and i called quite late at about 5pm needing a booking at the last minute and we were driving from Dunedin to CHCH and needed a stopover for the night.
I called them and asked if it was ok if we arrived late like near 1130pm. It was totally fine with them and the bedroom they had arranged was awesome! really warm, tidy, cosy and the bathroom was great - all new and really clean. the heater was on, and they had electric blankets thank god!
The breakfast was yummy! with toast and eggs and bacon. cereals and fresh fruit, tea and coffee. yoghurt and jams. i liked that they had brown bread as im health conscious! Trish really made sure she catered to what you preferred as i didn't want a full breakfast. They were great to talk too and very friendly. The house is beautiful and used to be their family home, the wood structure is lovely.
they had a sitting room as well with tea and coffee and bikkies and tv and magazines. I liked that, although we didn't get to use it cos we ended up there to late. but it looked lovely!
Would highly recommend staying here if you want to stop over in Timaru for a night or two. They are welcoming and its definitely worth it after a long drive.
would stay again without a doubt! thanks guys!!
