Quick Stay
Quick overnight on way north. Not many choices on TV. Beds are okay. Jetted tub was wonderful!

Need new bed
The bed was super in comfortable. It was sagging in the middle and I kept having to move to the side to get some support. Then just to roll back into the middle. Worst night sleep I have ever had

Home away from home
I have never stayed in Timaru before so no prior knowledge of accommodation options. Wasn’t expecting anything special as the price was average (based on North Island prices). When I got to my room I was very pleasantly surprised at what I got. I had a 3 bedroom apartment with great facilities including an awesome spa bath, which I took advantage of. My only 2 regrets were not having my family with me and not having more time to enjoy! This was a work trip but I felt like I was at home.

Good value for money
Very nice motel with friendly staff - we were a bit early for check-in and they accommodated us without any problems. The rooms were tidy and clean. The kitchen and living area were very spacious. The bedroom was cozy with a nice comfortable bed while the bathroom was a bit small but more than adequate.
