This hotel is a bit of a curate's egg. It is trying to be a hotel, whilst really it is a Motel, squeezed in between other similar Motels. When I say squeezed in I mean that every centimetre of land is used up and the entrance from the main road (Highway 1) could be considered dangerous given that it is hidden, narrow and on a blind bend in the road. We booked a superior room and whilst there was enormous space, the rooms had clearly not been prepared for our visit. It was seriously cold and could not be properly heated, plus the electric blankets did not work. The plus points of his and hers showers and basins were let down again by poor heating in the bathroom. A heated towel rail would have helped. There was no proper working sink in the kitchen and the basic kitchen equipment left a lot to be desired. The road outside the building is BUSY, and road noise did come through the windows, We are currently three quarters of the way through a 24 day tour of the South Island of NZ and this was one of the most expensive rooms we have booked to date, but by far the worst in value for money. Fortunately, this was just a one night stop over between longer stays in Dunedin and Christchurch, so no real damage done to our holiday, but we would not recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a comfortable, peaceful place to stop. Timaru, however, seems quite a pleasant place with a lively high street and many restaurants.

Booked via Wotif on a non-refundable booking. Travel plans changed so phoned the hotel to see if there could be a change to the booking - was told yes. We checked in a day later and reception laughed that we had already wasted a night by not showing up! Room was tired and old, no AC, hot and the only way to cool it down was to open the door to the balcony and main road. Would NOT recommend the service, staff or the room!
