    good nights sleep.

    We had just an overnight stay here and found it to great. Reasonably priced with a very good comfort level. Bed was great. Pillows too. Very good shower and easy parking. The check in was very welcoming and friendly and they provided excellent advise as to where to eat. Like all Timaru motels bay city is on the highway so we were aware that noise could be a problem but it wasn’t as the motel is set back a bit and the highway gets quieter after about 7 pm anyway. Highly recommend.
