Very friendly staff

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 3 Jun 2019
Ideal Hotel for business or private visit to Timaru, Rooms comfortable and warm. Restaurant is good choice for diner and breakfast. Staff are very helpful and welcoming. Parking space was good. Only a short brisk walk to the city centre.
Date of stay: May 2019
Room Tip: Some rooms there may be more road noise, ours was OK, on lower level.

The staff at Comfort Hotel can’t be faulted - wonderful, friendly and happy to go the extra mile

The hotel rooms however need a bit of attention. The hallways to the rooms are cold and very dark. Once you enter to room, it is clear they are tired and missing the extra touches. Cutlery and plates are at a minimum, the tv doesn’t display any TV guide, so you have no idea what you are watching and and the fridge hums away all night.

It is still a fine place to stay, but just not up to the standards it could be

Lovely staff and management, very friendly and most helpful.Rooms were adequate for a night. Corridors need a lighter paint, but otherwise cosy. Restaurant for breakfast was awesome, thoroughly enjoyed by all.

I also ate in the restaurant which was excellent, a limited menu but the chef created half size portions for me - exactly what I felt like - fresh ingredients and very tasty.

As per Previous reviews, the staff are amazing but the rooms could be a little better insulated, heavier curtains over the glass doors would help. I also had to find out how to get the heater to work but once set, the room was toasty.

Reviewed 15 December 2018

Great front desk staff and plenty of parking, however this hotel is let down by the standard of the rooms, road noise and layout. They are having a lift installed, but at the moment getting to the higher floors means climbing the stairs with your bags. The hallways are dark and uninviting. The room had been updated a little, but it was still lacking - small, older TV with no USB input, chips on doors, hole in wall under sink etc. Room was clean enough, but a little more attention to the corners in the shower would have improved it. Getting in and out of the car park can take a while as the road outside is very busy, especially at peak times. If it wasn't for the staff, this would have been a 2 star review.

Lovely welcome and wonderful staff very friendly and fun. Glad we only stayed one night as the bedding was terrible. Needs new beds and pillows. A bit dated and very average for the price. Nice and clean. Having bar onsite was great after travelling and plenty of parking.

Room tip: Get a room away from road
