Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Firstly I must say, check in was great, greeted by a lovely young lady who was very helpful. Room was very spacious and whilst dated well appointed and clean. My only gripe would be the road noise. We were in unit 5 and it was next level. The 3 nights we were there we hardly got much sleep at all, then you combine this with the boy racers on a sat night made our days very long and tiring. To be fair though any motel along evens street would have the same problem. Was very close to the aquatic centre, 5 min walk. Would I stay again..... most prob not because of the noise factor only! The actual unit was fine but the noise was a massive issue for us.

Although our room at this motel was spacious and clean and the host was pleasant enough, the decor was extremely dated and the furnishings extremely well-worn. It didn’t affect our stay per se but it could have been so much better with just a few updates. The morning light woke us very early because the drapes are so thin.

We booked in and must of been the lady's daughter, that must do the booking was quite rude when we were booking in. And the lady on reception this morning was not friendly at all. The place is very very dated,the photos on the internet are very misleading. We seen they had a spa and after a hard day we were looking forward to it and it was a small dated bath,not a bigger one like in the picture had. Had rails hanging off the wall. The fridge made noises all night and keeped us awake most of the night,that we almost packed up and left . I told the tell the lady this morning and she really care that we had no sleep. Said she would tell Barry and walked off. It was super hot and we wanted to put the heater on with the fan to cool us down. But it was so noisy we couldn't keep it on when we were sleeping, so we then we could hear the fridge all night long. So disappointed and a waste of money. We would of liked part of our money back.We would not recommend anyone to saty here. But the man cleaner was lovely and my partner talk to him this morning.

We were greeted by a friendly host and allocated a room just inside the main entrance. Nice clean room with a Spa and it seemed that care had been taken over presentation. It does need air conditioning as the road noise is an issue if windows are open.

A repeat visit for us. A dated motel, but value for money and fit for purpose. Units are spacious and clean. Bed is comfortable. Everything you require for an overnighter when travelling. We walked to eating places. There is a lot of noise from the main road and the units are not double glazed, but the traffic did not bother us greatly. Would use this hotel again when in Timaru, as in my opinion many of the other motels are just too pricey for this town.

Clean and tidy unit though quite dated. Friendly helpful host. Large lounge and covered parking next to the unit which were appreciated. Only real issue was the traffic noise from the road. Maybe offering some earplugs to guests at reception might be a nice gesture.

Am staying here for two nights - about the third time I have stayed here - clean & comfortable & for me has the bonus of a discount for Seniors. Will stay here next time I am in Timaru. Close to the city centre and the main roads both North & South

Clean welcoming & comfortable, with a friendly hostess on arrival. Units are a little dated but very clean and well appointed with a very comfortable bed just what we needed after a days traveling. Situated on the main road into Timaru, handy to food outlets, supermarkets and the town centre. & walking distance to Caroline bay attractions. Would recommend & will stay again.
