        The redesign of the old building, the friendly staff, good food, complimentary breakfast, proximity to shops and beach.

        The plumbing- the bin caught the drips from the drain. Breakfast area had no windows and was rather dark.

      • Older travelers

        Friendly staff. Location. Room theme i.e. Ford. Cleanliness. Space.

        No fridge. Very uncomfortable bed for a couple, the join is very uncomfotable, both had sore backs after our stay.

        the location and the bed

        not great value for money - decor was average and the breakfast was very average - also wouldn;t call the room 'superior - bathrooms were sub standard

      • Older travelers
        5.8

        Room was very cold. Bed was marginal. Duvet weight was too light for coldness of room. Needed down duvet not synthetic.

      • Older travelers
        7.4

        It was a comfortable room with a good bed and nice linen.

        It would have been good to have a better storage area like a wardrobe and shelving. The toilet was to close to the bath. The breakfast dinning area is very drab and terrible coffee.

        A character fulled bulding the likes ofwhich I have not stayed in before. The rooms are such that you can not hear other guests. As a smoker I thought the balcony was excellent.

        Very friendly and comfortable - nice room

        Bathroom was getting a bit old, but still serviceable.

      • Older travelers
        3.8

        There was absolutely nothing we liked about the hotel.

        The room The food The noises in the middle of the night from other guests The indifference of the staff The outrageous charges for the room rate and food. We will never stay there again and will advise others to avoid the place.

      • Group of friends

        We travelled to Timaru to watch Gary Mulland and The Works, and the Hotel was just down the road! It had a great car park, Had a nice bar underneath which served great food, this was very convienient for us, a suitable continental breakfast, helped us on our way.

        Maybe a little too close to the train station as the early train passing may upset some, i thought it was the road sweeper passing and was no great problem, the hotel is under refurbishment and our room and bathroom was yet to be done, however it was clean and perfectly suitable for our needs and i would recommend it.

        Economics, clean hotel

        Got bit problem wit lift. That so old.

      • Single
        5.4

        The staff were friendly and reasonably helpful. The food was good, well presented and tasty. Bed was comfortable and warm.

        The room itself was fine but the bathroom was interesting the toilet was so close to the wall I usually sat on it sideways to give me better leg room but this did make getting the toilet paper out of the large dispenser very interesting and difficult to say the least as it was so low to the ground. A normal sized toilet roll holder would be much better. The shower pressure was great but I'm glad I didn't have any issue with my hips as it was a large step up and into the shower which was fine, getting out was scarier and required holding onto the towel rail. Supplied toiletries were bulk supplied so I'm glad I wasn't relying on these to use. The noise from the downstairs public bar was ridiculous and went on and on into the wee hours of the morning which didn't allow for much sleep and the language was colourful - not suitable for children at all. Would have yelled shut the hell up out of the window if I thought it may have helped. Expected much better as the cost of $120 per room we had two wasn't that cheap. The other rooms bathroom was worse than mine as the bathroom sink was coming away from the surrounds!! Don't like shower curtains much either.

        Awesome friendly staff

        possibly just a tad highly prices for a single room

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        Comfortable, economical and convenient for visiting family and friends in Timaru.

        Although tea-making facilities were available in the room, there was no refrigerator in the room for milk.
