Hello Anonymous, We are well aware of some traffic noise, our location is central to all that Timaru has to offer. Double glazing is being installed December 2020 for that room.

Was great Funny thought as the web site said last room when I booked Yet there were two spare units both nights Pretty sure this is a common advertising ploy

Pleasant place to stay. Basic but comfortable but it was priced well and that was the key thing. Wall between my bedroom and next unit’s bedroom were thin as a man coughing in the next unit woke me in the night. But all in all a comfortable stay.

Basic but clean

Pros: Staff were helpful, and the heating worked very well (middle of winter so this was important). It is also kept clean.
Cons: It's very tired and outdated. The plumbing is strange and complicated to use. The microwave looks like it came out of the ark.
Location: Good location for business in town.
Very friendly staff/owners, but this motel is very outdated and not at all as it appeared online. It's also on the main road and the noise of trucks is loud. The owners did put me in a room further from the road, so they are aware of this issue and at least make an effort to make your stay easier.

close to beach etc the

Pros: not much
Cons: the whole place
Location: location and activities are good
the noise from the traffic going past on the road outside was terrible we might as well be sleeping on the footpath. the noise echoes around the buildings. the buildings need double glazed but looking at the age of them be better to be removed an new ones built. I would not stay there again in presence condition
