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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Interesting place, check in was easy and pleasant. Apartment on the third floor, no elevator. Close to Botanic Garden, but nothing else, no restaurants near except one Chinese. Bed was small and too soft, pillows were good. Interesting sign that if you didn’t do the dishes there was a 50 dollar fee. So you are relying on the last guest to clean properly. We washed everything we used because of that. Not impressed with that.

This is one of the best motels I have ever stayed at! I have stayed here monthly for nearly four years. The rooms are spacious and modern, air-conditioned, and with 50 channels of Sky. The beds are very comfortable and the views from the upper floor rooms decks extend to the Alps. The motel is always immaculately clean. And the owners are very friendly and accommodating

Due to some last minute issues with accommodation in Dunedin, we ‘scrambled’ to find some good accommodation in Timaru. We were pleasantly surprised with the experience at Coastal Ridge Apartments. The ground floor unit was clean, well equipped, spacious and met our every need. The managers and staff were very helpful and accommodating. When we return to NZ we intend to again stay at Coastal Ridge.

My wife and I stayed at Coastal Ridge because it offered an accessible room. The room was large, very clean, and easily maneuverable in by my wife in her wheelchair. The friendly manager made the stay pleasant. For exceptional accessible lodging I highly recommend Coastal Ridge.

Best accommodation we've stayed in for a while. Clean. Well appointed. Modern. Great welcome, great bed. Everything you need. We only stayed one night but would happily stay longer. Barely knew we were close to a main road.

Where do I start. I phoned in a panic as our original accommodation in the previous town had lost our booking and being a long weekend most places were fully booked. We carried on up the road to Tinaru and spoke to a lovely lady called Pam. Gosh what a life saver. I explained what had happened and she cane to our rescue. We arrived about 30 minutes after making the call and Pam was waiting for us. We are greeted with a very warm welcome and shown to our apartment. All I can say is Wow. It was clean, modern, spacious and comfortable. We were on the middle floor with had a huge shared balcony. Great view across Timaru I would highly recommend staying here. You won't be disappointed. Thank you Pam you legend.

One night stay, had to bring date forward so although our one bedroom apartment wasn’t available, Kerry put us in 3rd floor executive studio. Very spacious, looked newly decorated. Complimentary guest laundry room. Super comfortable recliners & large bed. Andrea reservations Manager was fantastic for our original booking. We chose this property as it’s ideal to park race car trailer. Happy with our choice & highly recommend.

Pam is friendly, warm, welcoming and extremely helpful. She upgraded us for free from studio to 1 bed apartment on arrival. We were extremely happy with with the beautiful, clean, neat, modern facilities and comfy king size bed. We had a wonderful stay and highly recommend Coastal Ridge apartments. Will definitely stay here again next time we visit Timaru. Lisa.

I received a genuinely warm welcome when I booked in. My room in the 3rd floor is super-clean, well appointed and the bed is so comfortable. I could not ask for more from an apartment when travelling! Louise

Without a doubt, one of the nicest motels we have stayed in. On the top floor and without a lift, but spotless, airy and modern. The studio has very comfortable reclining chairs, a very comfortable bed and every amenity we could want or need. Charming helpful hosts. Definitely a winner here and recommended without reservation.
