The motel is conveniently located near the Botanical Gardens south of the centre of Timaru. It is on a main road, but we heard no road noise, despite being only two units back from the entrance. Staff were friendly and helpful. We had the impression that our unit had been built a couple of decades back, but had been renovated to a modern standard. It was spacious, with a large living room, a small kitchen, a spacious bathroom, and two bedrooms each with a large double bed (this meant the space around them was quite narrow). We were very comfortable there.

Room tip: Parking at this motel is not a problem.

We had a very pleasant stay at Cedar Lodge Motels. Jody was very helpful in trying to fit us in on a weekend when everywhere was booked out. Our unit was lovely, clean and modernised and well away from the main road traffic. Would most certainly book to stay there again when next in Timaru.

We can't recommend this motel highly enough. Firstly Pam and her team were super friendly and went above and beyond for us and made us feel so very welcome. They upgraded us to a gorgeous 1 bedroom unit which was super quiet with a huge comfortable bed, very spacious and such comfortable lounge chairs, & an extendable dining room table. Also many windows to open for ventilation if needed, with a beautiful outlook onto the spacious garden area. The motel is next to the Botanical Gardens as well, as an extra bonus. We couldn'f fault this place.

Stayed here with my daughter and grand daughters. Had a 2 bedroom unit. The hosts/staff were wonderful and friendly. The unit we had was beautiful and clean. Furniture was modern and a great TV. Beds were extremely comfortable for all of us. It had a spacious bathroom and kitchen had all we needed. We were really pleased with our decision to stay here.
