The Grosvenor has a penchant for authentic and unique design. Although we have been called a boutique hotel and a hip hotel, we’re not sure what that really means. We’re a little modern, and a little bohemian. Our rooms are pet-friendly (which basically means dog-friendly), so we encourage you to bring the whole family.
Our 44 rooms have many eco-friendly, sustainable, and green elements, like vintage furniture, low-VOC paints and recycled materials throughout. Our accommodations offer simple luxury for cheap — many rooms feature art by local and international artists.
To coincide with our sustainable practice, we use LED lights, paint with low VOC (volatile organic compound) and floor coverings that are made with recycleable material. The Grosvenor practices it’s recycling program extensively. We minimise the usage of plastic bottles. We have reminders placed in rooms to discourage patrons to wash their towels more than they should.
Check back often to see what’s new, like upcoming deals and packages. Our rates are consistently pretty low in comparison to other Timaru hotels and motels, even if you book at the last minute.
Our normal hotel rooms may be neutral in appearance but they just had a makeover with contemporary aesthetics with plenty of power points for your electronic gears. Still, all rooms come with an ironing board & iron, tea & coffee making facilities and extra blankets. A Fridge is also available upon request.
For those of you that are fed up with bland decor and aspiring for an out-of-ordinary experience, we have a handful of themed rooms that are requested by our hardcore regular customers. We’ve got a TUI room, SPEIGHTS room, JIM BEAM room and a JACK DANIELS room.
Immerse yourself in South Canterbury’s history by requesting Room 101 or aptly known as the Queen’s Room. During Her Majesty’s tour of New Zealand in 1954, this is where she stayed.
If you were to travel with a bunch of mates OR if you were from a large family OR if you were simply looking for a room to spread yourself out AND looking at no frills, then, look no more. Room 211 rises to the occasion.
Sometimes, circusmtances dictate that you have to travel with your colleagues or with teenage children, who want to be close and yet, far away from their parents. Perhaps, Room 127 may suit you. It could be linked to Room 125. OR you could have a combo of Room 101 and Room 102 which has access to the deck (subject to availability).
