            Service and friendliness from the staff were excellent in every respect. The room was brilliant. Maybe a little fridge would by useful but it was not a significant problem for the three days there. The room and restaurant were both delightful to be in. Food excellent and service was outstanding.

            The 2d night there was a room with young kids, too young to self supervised ALL evening. At midnight they were still all be, up and very, very noisy. There should be a roaming on the floor on regular occasion. No idea where parents were. It was frustrating as I needed to rest.

            It is just so sad that a once old historic, elegant hotel has been neglected & seemingly stripped of most of its indoor decor features except for stair bannisters & ? the lift.. Carpets shabby & stained, paintwork chipped, ill fitting bedroom doors & certainly not original. It has good bones but just lacks TLC making the summary in the fron t of guest compactum rather out of date. Restore some of the appropriate period features/decor please. TLC +++ However - all that aside - were we to need accommodation in a quiet & handy location in the future we would still consider the Grosvenor. Our quiet good sized room was clean, the bed comfy, bathroom adequate. no frig though.

            Disappointing! ”
            This is a 3 star hotel, but that doesn't excuse the state of the rooms. Black mould on the walls and chipped and tatty paintwork. The hotel rooms are in desperate need of an overhaul. The mattress was old and well wornand uncomfortable! The bathtub was stained. When we arrived and first entered our room I could smell cigarette smoke. The windows were frosted so we could not see out. The reason we found out later was because the balcony was directly outside our room, and that is were people are allowed to smoke! Even though they claim to be 100% non smoking hotel. We asked to move rooms and staff obliged thankfully. One redeeming feature of this hotel is the location. Plenty of cafes in easy walking distance.

            Organize beforehand”
            We arrived to be given a room on the second floor which had a bed and small fridge which doubled as the table for the kettle and tea/coffee facilities. The paint was peeling off the shower wall, and the room number outside the room was broken off. No chairs, no table. Like a broken down establishment I once stayed in Mexico. I of course told the receptionist it was not of an acceptable standard. After some thought she suggested another room on the first floor, which was quite acceptable. She organised also for the fridge to be transferred to the room. That made us happy, because she went the extra mile. The hotel food is served in the bar/dining room, it is quite the gastro pub and the food and drinks are reasonably priced and of good quality. Overall, I would warmly recommend providing you let the hotel know you expect a room with the basics.

            It is a rather tired old pub style Hotel in central Timaru. It provides a clean place to stay but don't expect luxuries or modern furnishings and you won't be disappointed.
