Thank you

a good location for stop-over

Pros: Recycle bins are provided to separate wastes.
Cons: Clear instructions on how to operate the spa - why do people pay for a spa room while you can't use the spa?
Location: Near Timaru botanic garden
The Motel is on the major road to Christchurch so it's a good location for a stop-over, however it's 3km out of Timaru Town centre. We booked the room because of the spa in the room as it's the last day of our road trip, we wanted to relax in the spa, however we tried in both of our rooms following common sense - turned the switch and the button on but neither spa worked. As we were already in the bath tub we didn't ask for help so just had a bath instead. I discussed this with the owner when checking-out and he said we need to press a "reset" button which is near the wash basin, this instruction should have been provided when checking -in but wasn't. I guess may be the owner didn't want guest to use the spa.

Great Spot close to gardens

Cons: The only thing that wasn't amazing (but its a personal opinion) are the colours of the decor, just a bit dated really
Rooms were spacious, clean and tidy, nice little touches around the place, great bubbly spa bath. Nice and close to the botanic gardens which were amazing with autumn colours. Friendly informative staff, nothing negative at all about the stay - thanks very much
