My partner booked this and he did well. Old converted Mill with historic bridge nearby. Lovely room and spacious common room area for reading and relaxing. Close to Oamaru and Moeraki. I would definitely stay here again

The fantastic accommodation, clean, with all facilities and helpful staff. Located by the road but very quiet. Not far from the Moeraki builders and the city of Oamaru. The accommodation is surrounded with nature and you can see a very special bridge just behind the fence. Free Internet is also an advantage.

We happened across this little gem quite late in the day when we had no pre-booked accommodation. What a find! Attention to detail was amazing and our host Malcolm was kindness itself. Magnificent old building with lots of history has been perfectly restored. Enjoyed our stay.

We spent 3 days in this very comfortable Old Mill House. Our rooms were extremely comfortable and very well presented. A comfortable lounge area fully equipped with tea and coffee making facilities. Very helpful and charming host.

The Mill House is an iconic building on the main road South of Oamaru. It is now under relatively new ownership and we were welcomed warmly by the new owners....

A great place to relax, friendly people and awesome gardens, very natural... with Tui birds singing. . Comfy bed and not too far from Oamaru. The amenities are nice, I just wish we stayed a bit longer to lounge in the gardens while drinking wine. Will defiantly be back. :)

My partner and I decided we needed a weekend away and Oamaru/Moeraki was the places we chose to go. We fell upon The Millhouse, photos looked beautiful and it was the perfect location between both places! The owner was super friendly and very knowledgable about activities and what times of days to avoid the tourist rushes. The bed was one...
