We came here with 3 days left of our holiday. We only intended to stay one night but we were so impressed with Blueberry Cottage we stayed another night! I would go as far as to say it was the best place we stayed in NZ for the following reasons: Excellent value for money; our room had a view to the sea and we were able to use the garden to sit in to enjoy the view too; the Swiss continental breakfast was simply fantastic (the best we've experienced anywhere in NZ); we had our own fridge to put our wine in; Rodger told us where we might spot some blue penguins at dusk and we actually did see some which was wonderful. Timaru itself is a bit like Greenock in Scotland, by the the sea but, no offence, you wouldn't go on holiday there but it's a good town to see other places from and it's worth a visit if only to stay at this B&B!

Babara and Roger gave me a warm welcome at their place in december 2012. Besides a nice and clean room in their house, 5 min walk away from the beach, 5 min drive to timaru centre, they provided everything that would make me feel home. Very good muffins, cookies, christmas cake, tea, nice talks and introduction to their personal interests (like train sets, gardening, oldtimer,...) rounded off my stay at this accommondation. It is a lovely place to stay. I can only recommend everyone to experience this wonderful home.

(--) We stayed here just the one night in February 2006. We were on our way north and chose Timaru as a convenient overnight location. I think Timaru and its attractions are often overlooked by visitors to NZ which is a pity. Barbara and Rodger made us very welcome. It is a small B&B , just two rooms with shared bathroom. Sea views from the garden and close to the Botanic Gardens. Barbara had thought of just about everything her guests could ask for and was very attentive. It was the best value for money B&B of our whole trip to NZ. I would thoroughly recommend this B&B. The trip in the Vintage Car was wonderful unexpected and free 'extra' but I am not sure this is always offered.
