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.
