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.

The most important part of a hotel is good bedding. Lack of sleep due to poor bedding is not healthy for one’s body and mind . The bedding in our room was not up to the standard we are used to. The room was clean but lacked finishing touches. There are only 2 cups NO glasses to drink from . The curtains weren’t hooked up properly and coating missing of the bottom of the shower. The mini bar was stocked poorly with extremely high priced snacks . I compared some items in the mini bar with supermarket prices . So just bring your own snacks and unless you’re happy to pay over the top .

DATE OF TRAVEL: July 2023 Stayed here for 3 days for a business trip. First impressions were.... disappointing. The hotel was empty, the chef was also at reception and the building looks run down. HOWEVER, check in was fast, the rooms were well appointed, if well travelled, and the bed was very comfy. Sadly I didn't get back to my hotel room until late night each night but the breakfast was fantastic and affordable. All the staff were super friendly, welcoming and accomondating. Room walls were thick as I didn't hear my colleagues in the other rooms at all, even when we were talking. Shower was great. Good pressure and the bathroom had all the basic amenities you would need for a regional motel. Though some people may not like it, the interestingly spaced corridors made the hotel feel like a rabbit warren and I actually quite enjoyed that. The gym was probably the best one I'd seen in all of my hotel stays in Canterbury. I was really impressed. Sadly it was closed before I left and when I came back so didn't get a chance to try it. It's only a few minutes away from the main restaurant strip of the town and the food at all of them was fantastic. Caroline Bay Beach is beautiful and I enjoyed my morning walks there. Would I stay again? Though I may never have a need to again, most definitely if the need did arise. First looks are certainly deceiving with this place but push through it and you'll find yourself a gem of a stay =)

I stayed there for three nights. The place is sparkling clean. The greatest asset is the friendly staff. They are so accommodating and kind. Compliments to the cook for the lovely dinner. It was amazing to be greeted every morning by the front of house person with a big smile and a warm" Good morning"

I asked for a quiet and cool room and that's what they gave me. That's service! but be warned as not all rooms are accessible by lifts. The restaurant is great, I so enjoyed my 2 meals there and the service was awesome.

Ideal Hotel for business or private visit to Timaru, Rooms comfortable and warm. Restaurant is good choice for diner and breakfast. Staff are very helpful and welcoming. Parking space was good. Only a short brisk walk to the city centre.

The staff at Comfort Hotel can’t be faulted - wonderful, friendly and happy to go the extra mile The hotel rooms however need a bit of attention. The hallways to the rooms are cold and very dark. Once you enter to room, it is clear they are tired and missing the extra touches. Cutlery and plates are at a minimum, the tv doesn’t display any TV guide, so you have no idea what you are watching and and the fridge hums away all night. It is still a fine place to stay, but just not up to the standards it could be

Lovely staff and management, very friendly and most helpful.Rooms were adequate for a night. Corridors need a lighter paint, but otherwise cosy. Restaurant for breakfast was awesome, thoroughly enjoyed by all.

I also ate in the restaurant which was excellent, a limited menu but the chef created half size portions for me - exactly what I felt like - fresh ingredients and very tasty. As per Previous reviews, the staff are amazing but the rooms could be a little better insulated, heavier curtains over the glass doors would help. I also had to find out how to get the heater to work but once set, the room was toasty.

Great front desk staff and plenty of parking, however this hotel is let down by the standard of the rooms, road noise and layout. They are having a lift installed, but at the moment getting to the higher floors means climbing the stairs with your bags. The hallways are dark and uninviting. The room had been updated a little, but it was still lacking - small, older TV with no USB input, chips on doors, hole in wall under sink etc. Room was clean enough, but a little more attention to the corners in the shower would have improved it. Getting in and out of the car park can take a while as the road outside is very busy, especially at peak times. If it wasn't for the staff, this would have been a 2 star review.
