We thought we'd break our trip down south with a night in Timaru. We had booked this room in advance and we're greeted by a friendly member of staff. Once in the room the disappointment was everywhere. The curtain rod was coming of the wall wallpaper coming off as well, the pillowcase was torn and there was only a thin... More

I arrived in Timaru and the Benvenue had 1 room left, which I snapped up. It was more than I intended to pay, but for the money (around $145 a night for 3 nights) I got a one bedroom motel with a dark but nice recently re-furbished motel/hotel room. It was difficult to make breakfast for myself. There was a... More

Upon arrival I was greeted by very friendly and enthusiastic staff. I thought, this is going to be good. When reaching my room however, I felt as though I had gone back in time to circa 1988. The decor and furnishings look very dated and tired. Only thing missing was the 14" tv with bad reception! The shower was great... More

Stayed here with the Goldwing Club, very good choice. Was plenty of parking for all the bikes. Our room was spacious and had a big comfortable bed with good shower. Everything was clean. Tea and coffee was in the room as were snacks that you had to pay for.

This is a very comfortable and pleasant place to stay. The restaurant produces quality food and the service is great. The staff are accommodating and friendly. It is well located on the main highway, close to town and lovely gardens

The welcome was friendly enough, with the receptionist making small talk while sorting out the key. My room was close to the gym, and was a Standard Room. Standard was a pretty accurate description, room was just plain tired, tired bed, tired little old tv, small bathroom. Everything was very old school NZ, nothing at all flash. On the positive...

We stayed here for two nights in July. The staff were awesome, very polite and nothing was a problem. The room was very clean and tidy. I used the gym early in the morning and it was excellent. It would be good if they had spray bottles of disinfectant to clean down the machines before and after use. The only... More

Stayed here a few weekends ago. Quaint little town and a fairy dated hotel with bare basic amenities. No wifi available which I found odd. Very warm and welcoming receptionist tho and convenient location, central to shops and food. Appreciated the 12pm late checkout!

If reviews were based on customer service alone, this hotel would be #1 for Timaru. The check in, bar and restaurant staff are all generally friendly and go out of their way to make you feel as comfortable as possible. The hotel itself is situated on SH1 so is a little noisy, however the rooms are clean, spacious and have... More
