We stayed here just the one night in February 2006. We were on our way north and chose Timaru as a convenient overnight location. I think Timaru and its attractions are often overlooked by visitors to NZ which is a pity. Barbara and Rodger made us very welcome. It is a small B&B , just two rooms with shared bathroom. Sea views from the garden and close to the Botanic Gardens. Barbara had thought of just about everything her guests could ask for and was very attentive. It was the best value for money B&B of our whole trip to NZ. I would thoroughly recommend this B&B. The trip in the Vintage Car was wonderful unexpected and free 'extra' but I am not sure this is always offered.
