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!

Perfect for a 1 night stay for business. Handy to all amenities. Restaurant onsite meant we did't need to go anywhere else. Friendly, helpful staff who upgraded us so that we had a view of the bay.

Good size room a little tired and missing light bulbs etc. Easy walk to restaurants in town and we were upgraded to a balcony room at a higher level which gave us a view of Timaru harbour

We enjoyed our one night stay at the hotel. Unfortunately the restaurant at the hotel was not open nor was the bar. We walked into Timaru township and enjoyed a meal there. We had to do the same for breakfast.
