Great place to stay while on business in Timaru.
Close to the Port, that's where I work when I'm here, and walking distance, around 30 minutes, to the main street in the CBD.
The Hosts, Kathryn & Wayne a great and make your stay comfortable & enjoyable.
They were very accommodating with changes in booking dates as I do this a lot with my line of work, even at short notice, nothing is a problem. One of the other benefits I find is that I need to scan and send documents while travelling and they both have been very helpful in scanning and emailing back to me documents and sometimes there are quite a few.
The Motel has a restaurant on site which is great and popular with the locals, Dave is a great Chef. All in all a very good and reliable motel with a great team running it.

Room Tip: The Back rooms are further from the main road & therefore are quieter. Some rooms have good wheelchair access if required Free internet

Nice welcome, good service, quiet clean room although a little dated. bathroom small. Would have liked sky on 2nd TV in bedroom, but in the end a business trip not social:-) great to be able to get room service meal after a busy day.

Room Tip: go for rear of complex newer rooms

Wayne and Kathryn as first class motel managers. After hectic days consulting in Timaru its a pleasure to come back to a spotless clean room , quiet location and staff that make the place a home away from home for me. Dave at Tussocks Restuarant 'the grumpy chef' is well regarded by both locals and travellers alike. Ask him about the specials. Local fish and chip shop one of the best in NZ. Blue cod a South Is delicacy. Very good runs at the Rose Gardens and beach. I joined Cbay gym 10 min drive , an incredible facility with over 20 lanes of swimming and full service gym etc.

The motel was clean with very good bed. Just what we needed. And the price was right for what we got. The new managers are making a fine job, making us feel welcome and helpful. I wish them well with their new job.

We stayed here on our journey south to invercargill. It was very clean and quiet with excellent facilities. If in apartments 17-30 then ask office for a router to obtain free wifi which was very good.
It is excellent value for money.
