A night in Timaru enroute from Dunedin to Methven was taken at the Sefton which was an ideal staging post. It is a private house located within an easy walk of the town and is close to reasonable restaurants. Excellent breakfast made a good start to the next day.

We stayed here for one night on our way back to Christchurch and were so pleased we had selected Sefton. We stayed in the blue room with the en suite and found it very comfortable, lovely bed and shower room, Trish and John have obviously considered travellers needs and are very friendly and accommodating with info on local amenities and restaurants. It's only a short walk to the town and is in a quiet location. Amazing breakfast set is up well for the day, beautifully cooked and served in the stylish dining room. A lovely finale to our tour of New Zealand!

Room tip: Blue room has the en suite shower.

My mother and I recently stayed at Timaru for two nights and we were delighted we decided to book Sefton Homestay. The home couldn't be cleaner and the fresh flowers in our room and bathroom contributed to the overall agreeable ambience. Bathrobes were provided and night-lights and torches assisted accessing our huge private bathroom located across the hall. Breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented.

We really appreciated the adivice from Trish that we visit Mt John Observatory passing through Lake Tekapo on our day trip to Mount Cook National Park. It was well worth the visit and we would have missed it without the tip.

Thank you for your very kind review. Timaru is the perfect place to base yourselves for interesting day trips. We never tire of visiting Mt John when in Tekapo with those amazing views.

Friendly couple. Homely and lovely house. Easy walking distance into town. Town very quiet at night. Comfortable bedroom and facilities. Lovely home cooked breakfast. Useful information for next leg of our journey. Would recommend this b&b.

We were so lucky to have booked this as our first night in New Zealand. This Arts and Crafts house is gorgeous. Trish and John are delightful hosts and have thought of everything a long distance traveller might need. The guest lounge included all drinks, biscuits, water, milk and even sherry! The bedroom was comfortable and toiletries provided. Trish even helped by putting a washing load through for us. The breakfast was fresh and plentiful. We strolled down to Zest for supper which was excellent especially for me to be able to have gluten free pizza! A great stay.

Room tip: Queen room ensuite.
