Travellers' Choice
Bay Viaduct Motor boasts spectacular views overlooking Caroline Bay and has the ideal location just a few minutes walk to Caroline Bay, Timaru's cafés, bars, restaurants and central business area. The Aigantighe Art Gallery is just a few minutes walk away and Caroline Bay Aquatic Centre a short drive. Situated in a prime position on the main highway at the base of Wai-iti Road (always known as the Bay Viaduct corner before the motorway). Accommodation at the Bay Viaduct is easy to find for the visiting guest and locals alike. All of our motel units are double-glazed, so the great view and prime location are enhanced and there is limited traffic noise. Additionally most units have its own patio where guests can sit in the summer sun, take in the spectacular views and admire Timaru at its best.

Only stayed one night and that was from late at night untilcheck-out. Accommodation was perfect for our requirements including a deck for my son who is a smoker. Two tv's. A large spa bath which we had no use for. Very good parking. A lift would be helpful for old fellas. Would definitely stay again if the need to travel to Timaru

Our unit was very clean and had everything we needed for a stopover in Timaru. The location is so handy to everything - plenty of restaurants, shops and beach all within easy walking distance. We were on the ground floor this tie but have stayed there previously on the upper floor from which there is a fantastic view of the Port of Timaru at night with all its lights and cranes working.
