The bathroom is large, great shower, well stocked bathroom accessories , seems like Elaine has thought of everything her guests may need. The bed so comfortable and the room spacious and so inviting. Serene setting, stunning views and starry skies! Breakfast was just delicious, Elaine was so accommodating of my husbands special dietary needs and a wonderful hostess. We so enjoyed chatting with the other guests and Elaine facilitated the conversation and shared lots of helpful information as we planned our days. I could go on and on, our stay was just perfect and so memorable in many ways. Thank you Elaine!

We really enjoyed our stay at Timaru. We walked along the coastal walk, it wasn't that interesting but was lovely to watch the ocean and the birdlife. The township is a bustling place and we really enjoyed the coffee shops and eateries that we visited. We found that the people were friendly and helpful. Just loved the park and the beach. We walked everywhere and found that getting around was not a problem. If we ever go back to the South Island would definitely place this town on our itinerary.
Beautiful coastline, great walks, and fly fishing with Paul guiding was fantastic. The Speights Old Ale House was a great eating spot, and another little hidden jem was in the royal arcade, a little Italian pizza place Francesca’s .
Timaru is a convenient stop along the way but the town needs a rethink to bring it into the 21st century. We found a really nice restaurant in the main street but there is a permanent 30 min parking limit all around it ..... we ran the gauntlet of a potential parking fine to have dinner ..... when all the main shops were closed !!!!!
We were excited to find out that the blue penquins came into the beach at Timuru. So, after checking in to our great motel which was huge and really a whole apartment, we headed to the beach at night to see the penquins. We had to wait until 10 pm, but we were not disappointed. It was a full moon and you could easily see the penguins emerge from the water and waddle to their waiting chicks hiding in the rocks. It was so exciting! The beach was only a mile from our apartment and there are lots of great restaurants near the beach. I would definitely spend more time in Timuru next time to visit the museum and spend more time at the beach.
Timaru is a lovely little city. Lots of things to see close by. Also nice cafe's and eatery's. We had a lovely meal at Speights Ale House, the food ,staff & atmosphere was fantastic, highly recommend.
This was just a stop on the way from Chch to Dunedin. We had a lot of sightseeing in between the two cities, and Timaru won out. From our B&B (Pleasant View), there was a very nice walkway along the bay and through a park to get to downtown. We ate at Fusion, which had amazing food. Although it's not in Timaru, the Elephant rocks southwest near Duntroon are AmAzInG!

What a beautiful peaceful home. Large Comfy bedroom with private views into their huge gardens, lovely bed, best sleep in 29 days as we were off the road and it was SO quiet. Our hosts Margaret and Nevis were good to direct us the short distance to town, Margaret even phoned a friend to check on the location of the Timaru quilt shop for me!!

Great location, and reasonable price, friendly staff. Only walking distance to Caroline Bay and in the city. We happen to arrive in Timaru in time for New Years Eve while the Caroline Carnival was happening! Which was pretty cool, considering pretty much the stores in town were closed for the holidays/NY. Would stay again thanks :)

Wonderful! The location is great, with a super nice view to the sea. The room was good, clean and fully equiped. When we checked in, the clerk asked our choice of milk for breakfast, and gave us nice suggestions about what to do around. We did a road trip in NZ, and slept in 8 different hotels, this one was our favorite!

Elaine makes this house feel warm and comfy. She was a joy to talk with and her breakfast made to order was perfect. The views are out of this world. The bed has the softest sheets and were the most comfortable that we have experienced in New Zealand.
