Fantastic Motel
Amazing Motel! Everything was spot on from the free parking directly outside the entrance to the seamless check out. Carol was extremely helpful with all my queries about getting around town and helped with travel adapters as I’d brought the wrong pin type with me! The bed was extremely comfy, in room heat controls and a perfect kitchenette to prepare breakfast. Great shower and everything had been recently refurbed. Will definitely be my go to motel next time in Timaru.
