Fodor's Review

Set on a wide leafy street in suburban Timaru this comfortable B&B inhabits a brick and rough-cast 1919 Arts and Crafts house. Lots of stained glass and mullioned windows, period furnishings and a lovely cottage garden complete the look. All rooms are upstairs; the Tartan Suite has an additional sunroom to catch that late afternoon sun but uses a private bathroom along the hall. The Blue Room room is smaller, with its own en suite bathroom. There's also an upstairs guest lounge with TV, computer, and tea and coffee.
