We stayed here during the Christmas holidays and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Excellent accommodation and superb housekeeping! Great friendly hosts too. Close to New World although would need a car to get to main CBD shops and cafes. Still, a good walk if you’re keen! Overall, we’d stay again!

This motel is lovely and clean. There is good onsite parking. The room was large with good amenities. Friendly welcome and staff. A car is needed as it is a bit away from the main shopping area and restaurants.

We stayed one night with a 12 month old Guide dog puppy. The room was so clean and exceeded the normal amenities usually provided. We were advised the beds were comfortable and indeed they were -we slept so well. Thoroughly recommend this place - great communications and so friendly

I would certainly recommend this place. Had a king studio unit upstairs which was very clean and comfortable. They are spacious and with double glazing you don’t hear too much traffic even though it is on a main road. Ordered the continental breakfast which was great. Shower was great with plenty of hot water. Owners were very obliging and helpful. We would definitely stay again when visiting Oamaru.
