    Give the dog a bone

    Just an overnight stay. Very comfortable room but a bit noisy due to closeness to the main road. Luckily we were in a back room! Also not impressed by the manager's dog barking continuously in the early evening for an hour or so - pretty poor form for a motel to allow a barking dog on the premises.

    A quick one night trip for a sporting event. Arrived late, no issues for the management who let us know which room we were in snd how to get in. Comfortable bed after a long drive.

    Quiet and Central

    Lovely and quiet rooms (unusual for Timaru), nice and close to the CBD. Comfy beds and the sheets smell incredible!
