Perfect for a 1 night stay for business. Handy to all amenities. Restaurant onsite meant we did't need to go anywhere else. Friendly, helpful staff who upgraded us so that we had a view of the bay.

Good size room a little tired and missing light bulbs etc. Easy walk to restaurants in town and we were upgraded to a balcony room at a higher level which gave us a view of Timaru harbour

We enjoyed our one night stay at the hotel. Unfortunately the restaurant at the hotel was not open nor was the bar. We walked into Timaru township and enjoyed a meal there. We had to do the same for breakfast.

Ok to stay one night but no more than that

Pros: Close to Caroline Bay Park
Cons: Rooms could do with a refresh
This hotel is fine for someone who is just wants staying one night but I wouldn't want to stay any longer hard beds, multi level building which isn't easy for some with a disability to get around and lots of road noise.
