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.

I would not stay here again. The room we had for our first night was terrible. The mattress on the bed sagged so badly I could not lie on my side of the bed. The shower did not work properly and the toilet seat was so loose that it nearly slipped off completely. Also the pictures of the rooms on their website do not reflect the current state of the decor. How do the managers not know the room is so bad? We did get moved when I complained, so our second night was better but overall I did not enjoy our stay.

Great stay. Rooms are huge and check-in was smooth and easy after a very tiring day. The beds and sheets were lovely and everything felt so clean. Id only fault the fridge which was loud at night when trying to sleep. I'd return again happily though

We really enjoyed our stay, sadly only for 1 night. We stayed in an Exexutive Spa unit, 5 people, and it was fab. Lovely and clean, spacious with very good kitchen facilities. Management was super helpful when accommodating a surprise extra guest. Beds were very comfy and the spa bath was enjoyed very much. Would love to return.

Conveniently situated on the main road. Clean and comfortable and distinguished by the generous size of the motel room but the décor is dark and ordinary. It also has a balcony. Some night traffic noise from the adjacent main road.

This was the second time we have stayed with Avenue Motor Lodge and have booked again for next year. As always the service was impeccable and staff were super friendly. Faultless stay other than it wasn’t long enough - highly recommend giving these guys a call if you are stopping in Timaru to arrange a booking!!

We previously visited this motel in March 2015 and this time booked two nights in a deluxe studio with spa bath because we remembered how pleasant it was when we were here last. We were not disappointed. The spacious accommodation was spotlessly clean and tidy and the bed extremely comfortable. Although on a main road we could not hear traffic at night. Very importantly all staff we encountered were very friendly and went out of their way to be very helpful with any special requests we made.

We stayed 2 nights whilst in town for a birthday party. The rooms are spacious and the beds very comfortable. The new owners are very friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this motel to anyone looking for a quality room at reasonable rates.
