  • The room was tired and had been badly renovated. Bed was two singles pushed together and like sleeping on wooden planks. An air conitioning unit or extracror fan or something like that rumbled away all night, along with trains shunting in the yards. Do gourself a favour and stay somewhere else. 1

  • Greetings Mr. Plimmer. Your description of two single beds pushed together is the standard hospitality beds that all hotel & motel operators used in New Zealand. They all come from the same source & should our beds are like wooden planks, then, all hotel & motel beds in New Zealand would be the same too? The geography of Timaru is that the railway line is part of our every day lives. Almost all motels in Timaru are by the railway line AND the major highway. And where would you suggest Timaru guests to go & stay then? It seems that you are a light sleeper & should that be the case, you can request for a room that's facing inwards rather than towards the street. The issue that we publicans have is that we are only told of the problem(s) AFTER checking-out and a rational thing to do is to inform us of your requests & we can attend to your needs immediately. It's a win-win for everybody. We are sorry to not have met your expectation. Regards, Ping LIM (The Proprietor)
