Despite the wet weather we received a warm welcome at Mariner Suites in Oamaru, NZ. The units are very spacious and well appointed. The hosts Ross and Debbie greeted us and farewelled us, making our stay seem like a visit with friends! The complex is close to Oamaru’s heritage area and if you are lucky you might catch the penguins coming ashore nearby. Thoroughly recommend this up to date special place.

We have stayed here multiple times and it's always a great experience. Fantastic location, large quality rooms, lots of usb ports to charge up your devices, very convenient to the historic part of town and penguin colony. You can easily walk to both. Spacious shower with good water pressure. Beds are super comfortable and the curtains do a great job blocking the light out at night. Love the views. Beautiful sunrise from the room. Great hosts. The only hotel we've stayed in New Zealand that's remembered us. Very professional.

I have stayed at the Mariner Suites on many occasions and it is always the same great stay. Comfy beds, great showers, great location and very friendly staff who make the effort to make you feel welcome. I will continue to stay at Mariner for my future visits to Oamaru and would definitely recommend to anyone after a pleasant experience in a very modern motel.

Very happy with the room - as shown in website photos. Comfortable bed and good pressure shower. A couple of negatives for us... The view was not quite what we expected - had not realised there is an industrial area between the hotel and the sea which detracted a bit. Also the towels were not very fluffy for the price point paid for the room. Parking was tight with angled parking and large vehicles leaving a small gap to get your car past if your room and parking space is beyond them (as ours was). On the plus side we loved the location - that was better than expected (hadn't realised how close to the historic area we were and was also walking distance to the Penguin colony). Also got a good recommendation for dinner at the nearby Scott's Brewing Company - glad we took the recommendation, had a great takeaway dinner from there (can order online).

Thank you for taking the time to write your review, we are so pleased you enjoyed our rooms and location. We wish you had let us know of your parking difficulties, we acknowledge we have 4 car parks shorter than the rest but with 26 parking spaces for 22 rooms we have plenty of alternative parks available. Kind regards, Debbie

Decided to stay in Oamaru for something different. The location of the hotels is great with it being close to the heritage area down by the beach area. There is also a brewery/eatery along with the steampunk museum and penguin colony located very close. Hotel staff were very helpful and the hotel had heaps of parking. Our room was great, everything was pretty new and well appointed. We had a deck and a great view. Would stay here again.
