“Very retro bath!!!”
Reviewed August 24, 2007

Booked though wotif. Rate very similar to internet rate offered by hotel. We stayed in their lodge accomodation, which also doubles as there conference/event facility! It was on the upper level of a 2 storey block. There were three bedrooms. Our double room was huge. There were 2 further twin rooms. The unit had a full kitchen, with dishwasher and a large table with chairs. There was also a living area, with 2 sofas and a 42 inch plasma screen tv. The hotel has a free dvd library, which my youngest son (14) made full use of in his chill out time! The motel is on a fairly quiet road, a short walk from the Botanical Gardens and around a 15-20 minute walk into the town centre. The restaurant at the motel was reasonably priced and the portions were huge! At the back of the motel there is a trampoline and giant chess set. The bathroom was very retro, with busy tiles and brilliant red sink and bath. The bath was probably the funniest one we have ever seen, with several steps up and then about 4 feet deep and perfectly round! I understand that the new units are very up to date and fabby! We enjoyed Timaru, with it's sea and mountain views.
