Excellent stop over.

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 31 Oct 2022
This room was well equipped from its kitchen area to the bathroom. The shower was great and the bed was very comfortable. The lounge suite was relaxing. We had a small view of the Bay due to asking for a ground floor room. We had a quiet sleep in the back facing bedroom. A most comfortable stay. Thank you.
Date of stay: October 2022
Room Tip: Good location to restaurants close by.

This is the second time we have stayed here and once again the service and apartment did not disappoint. The staff were excellent, happy and very accommodating to our needs. Accommodation was very clean with a bright and light decor. It was very quiet in our rooms, warm and inviting not to mention close to all the town amenities. Highly recommend Bay Viaduct as a place to stay.

Stayed two nights for meetings I had during the day. Heating was on when I arrived. Greeted by manager and shown room, very spacious, clean with lots of bench space to work. Great two day stay at very reasonable price.

A great place to stay in Bonnie Timaru. Central location and great views over Caroline Bay. Our room was immaculate with all amenities and the staff were friendly and helpful. I hope to visit again in the future and would have no hesitation in recommending Bay Viaduct Motor Lodge to everyone.

Hadn't booked ahead but was delighted to find they had one room left. Arrived late in the afternoon to a very warm welcome and a lovely warm ground floor room.
Impeccably clean, super comfy bed, fabulous hot shower and nice toiletries.
Loved the bedside lamps ( as I read before going to sleep and hate getting up to turn out the light) Loved the fact that the hosts remembered me from my previous visit almost 1 year ago. Great value for money and will definitely stay again.
