Hello. Thanks for the kind review. The Heritage area of Oamaru is very interesting and well worth the visit. Call again!! Cheers. Colin

A telephone call 2 hours prior to arrival secured a surprisingly beautiful well appointed and extremely clean large ground floor room with easy access. Greeting at Reception was personable with great recommendations for dinner and must see attractions. A must if passing through!
