Great location, very clean

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 1 Apr 2023via mobile
Stayed 1 night in a executive studio with view on my way back to Christchurch to fly home. Wish I could have stayed longer…. Friendly check-in, extremely clean and spacious room with view as advertised. I was given a small jug of milk for coffee when checking in which I thought was a nice touch compared to the small cups one normally finds. Easy walk to the bay and restaurants nearby along with a downtown area. Only drawbacks I could think of are noise from proximity to the motorway which may bother some but was not so excessive that it bothered me, and lack of a lift which again, may affect some. Would definitely return here as value for price paid was exceptional.

Central location near Caroline Bay and Timaru city center. Nice, large and stylish room. Comfortable beds and A/C was a big plus. Very friendly staff, we got a lot of information. Heavy traffic (SH 1) in front of the motel, but double windows keep the traffic noise outside nearly totally.

Stayed the one night. Beautifully clean, modern rooms.
Very quiet, even though beside busy street.
Staff were excellent and helpful. Great view over Timaru Harbour and surrounding Caroline Bay areas.
Would definitely stay again.

Great location, wonderful hosts, excellent rooms.

We usually stay at another motel in Timaru, they were full and they recommended this one. The communications, the facilities, in the location as mentioned excellent, answers the helpfulness of the team here also. Nice quiet rooms with the air conditioning would happily stay again.

A friend and I were doing a 2 week road trip around the South Island, just finding accommodation when we arrived in a town. Bay Viaduct was one of our favourites. The lady on reception was ever so friendly and helpful. Our 2 bedroom unit was large and everything we could want was provided. Beds were super comfy and there was also a connecting door which would cater for a larger family.
