Location handy to the bustling Timaru CBD! We had a special group deal and the owner was very supportive of our group. My room was clean and tidy, bed medium firm and comfortable. I noted the carpet was a bit tired and although bathroom appeared recently refurbished, the shower head was split/broken and sprayed water everywhere, (some did make it...

The staff were nice and helpful and were keen to point out that they have just taken over and in the process of updating and renovating the hotel. Our room was over looking the road / car park and was incredibly noisy as the road was close by and all night you could hear boy racers and heavy trucks going...

I was here 6 months ago but this time there are new managers and they are making a huge difference. I'm a poor sleeper so need a quiet room, and they changed as soon as I requested this and it was soooo quiet! Bliss. Bed was comfy and shower was simply one of the best I have ever had -...

The Benvenue.....Lets be clear, the staff were really friendly and the rooms were clean and tidy. However it really needs to have a major reno, the rooms are really tired and out of date, I know this is not cheap but Timaru is screaming out for a decent Hotel. Breakfast was okay and the service again was really friendly

Ok place to stay overnight as far as room goes but surely when experiencing a polar blast in July you shouldn't have to put on your puffer jacket when you step out of your room into the zero temp unheated corridor.

Room was older and in need of upgrading but clean and tidy. Staff somewhat distant. Breakfast was a disappointment as half was cold. Asked if this could be fixed but same food returned exactly the same.

I have stayed here approximately 4 times in the past 6 months... The first time I swore that I wouldn't come back... the room was dated and horrible... The bathroom was that classy that there was a "grand master" painting over the bog . Couple of week later I back in Timaru and this time the room was 5 star...

Stayed here many times for work great staff. Nice to walk into somewhere and they are genuinely pleased to see you. Walking distance to all pubs in area as well as having a bar on site. Food as good asyou will get in town. Yes the main rd can be a bit noisy but you will that with all accomodation...

I stayed two nights on business. My spacious room was near the rear, which was great for me as it was quiet. Had the bed, a 2 person couch, TV and DVD player. The sea view rooms had balconies but probably a lot of noise as well, the hotel being on state highway 1. Lighting was poor- 2 out of...
