Absolutely disgusted with the way I was treated. Talking after midnight got me a rude encounter with the owners who threatened police action and to kick us out. It was normal talking between two people not a party. Can’t believe they still get business they way they treat people. Spoke with all the other customers the following morning and they all said they heard nothing until the madam who runs the place cause the ruckus like a stampeding herd. Will never be staying there again. Not to mention the rock hard beds and older then the hills appliances. Could of heat the room better with a candle. A++ for abuse.

Good place to stay enroute to Christchurch and with a surrendiptitous discovery of old Oamaru, Victoria Street and area. Large rooms, clean and adequate heating. Only issue is the slippery staircase up to the second floor. Easy parking and friendly reception.

Nice comfortable unit with everything needed. No problem with parking and friendly welcome. We were in an upstairs unit and the steps are very steep. So if mobility is an issue make sure you ask for a downstairs unit. We had no problem though. Nice comfy bed. On the main road so there is traffic noise, but we slept. Only stayed the one night on our way through.

My mother, sister & I stayed in room 11, which did seem to be a slightly better standard than some of the other rooms - freshly carpeted and painted. Great extras - soap, hair dryer etc. The parking is a squeeze. Friendly service. It cost us $55 each which is getting up there in price for a room.
