In Timaru for a family birthday and Cedar Lodge had been recommended. We were lucky enough to stay in room #1 which has been very recently renovated. Couldn’t fault the powerful new shower or brand new Sleepyhead bed. Superb! We booked 3 rooms and all 3 were spotlessly clean. Call the Motel directly for the best rate. Thank you to Lauren and Melissa for looking after us. I ordered a continental breakfast as knew I’d be ‘peckish’ on the Sunday morning. Exactly what I needed! What lovely presentation. I should have taken more photos for this review. These ladies clearly take pride in their product as do their team. Thank you from the ‘Third Musketeer’.

Stayed on first floor in one bedroom unit in a modern block. Despite it being summer it was a freezing cold day so appreciated having the heat pump on. Everything was new and very clean with comfortable bed.

The place was comfortable and quiet. The bed was very comfortable and there was plenty of room to move about. The woman in the office was most pleasant and helpful. The motel could do with a bit of a revamp but I'd stay there again.

2 nights here and we slept so well. Quiet and 3 minutes drive away from the centre of Timaru and choice of supermarkets. Happy we chose this as many of the motels are on main roads with a lot of trucks and traffic noise, day and night. We chose one of the older rather than refurbished units and found it brilliant and homely. Very hot weather but these units were cool with windows front and back so the breeze could blow through. Very clean. Very Comfortable and definitely recommended.

We booked online a std queen sized studio first thing in the morning of our stay which was in between Xmas and new year. We'd been on the road since getting off the Picton ferry at 4.30am. Our accomm plans had changed and were arriving in Timaru earlier than the standard check in time of 2pm. I called and left a message, the owner called me back soon afterwards and assured me they would try to cater for an early check in even though they were busy turning around all the rooms. When we arrived nothing was a problem and our host wa super friendly and welcoming. We were exhausted from car travel and able to have a good nap before going out later. Our studio unit was very clean, tidy, spacious and quiet. The large bed was super comfy and there was a separate kitchette. There was
