We were a bit disappointed with this Hotel following stays in Motels on our way South. It was very noisy but this is probably the case with lots of places in Timaru as they are on the main road and there is lots of traffic. Double glazing would have helped. The Hotel is quite old - threadbare carpet and a...

Handy location for going to the Sound Shell and walking into town. Our rooms were fine for a short stay, because our rooms at the back and had no view but was tidy and spacious. Very friendly staff and great facilities

We thought we'd break our trip down south with a night in Timaru. We had booked this room in advance and we're greeted by a friendly member of staff. Once in the room the disappointment was everywhere. The curtain rod was coming of the wall wallpaper coming off as well, the pillowcase was torn and there was only a thin...

I arrived in Timaru and the Benvenue had 1 room left, which I snapped up. It was more than I intended to pay, but for the money (around $145 a night for 3 nights) I got a one bedroom motel with a dark but nice recently re-furbished motel/hotel room. It was difficult to make breakfast for myself. There was a...

Upon arrival I was greeted by very friendly and enthusiastic staff. I thought, this is going to be good. When reaching my room however, I felt as though I had gone back in time to circa 1988. The decor and furnishings look very dated and tired. Only thing missing was the 14" tv with bad reception! The shower was great...

Stayed here with the Goldwing Club, very good choice. Was plenty of parking for all the bikes. Our room was spacious and had a big comfortable bed with good shower. Everything was clean. Tea and coffee was in the room as were snacks that you had to pay for.

This is a very comfortable and pleasant place to stay. The restaurant produces quality food and the service is great. The staff are accommodating and friendly. It is well located on the main highway, close to town and lovely gardens

The welcome was friendly enough, with the receptionist making small talk while sorting out the key. My room was close to the gym, and was a Standard Room. Standard was a pretty accurate description, room was just plain tired, tired bed, tired little old tv, small bathroom. Everything was very old school NZ, nothing at all flash. On the positive...
