Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Love this hotel. Its an old bank and has been renovated and decorated with with such thought. The decor is wonderful. Each room is decorated differently. We had the original bank vault in our room. Breakfast was great and more than enough. Location is perfect as it's in the main street and a short walk to supermarket, shops and restaurants. Plenty of parking nearby. Oamaru is such a cute little town

Great location in the heart of town. With a friendly welcome we were directed to our rooms with each one having a different theme. The rooms were decorated with collections of unusual historical items - fishing, skiing, farming, musical etc. Rooms are very comfortable, large and well appointed. Bonus continental breakfast supplied and great shower.

Such a cool and classy place to stay. Perfect location, super-clean and comfortable. So much interesting stuff to see both in the room and the shared areas before even leaving the hotel. Not to mention a very warm welcome by the hosts. Thank you so much, we'll be back for sure.

Beautifully appointed. Incredibly helpful staff and a great breakfast. The rooms were clean and warm and spacious and the amenities are super high quality. Easy parking and right in the centre of town. I don’t know why anyone would stay elsewhere! Would highly recommend.

Lovely hotel experience. The design is full of personality and the rooms are super comfortable. There is free parking on the street or in the countdown parking lot. The free continental breakfast was delicious and the hostess was really kind and had lots of tips and suggestions of things to do around Oamaru. Highly recommend!
