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).…
Tasteful high end decor, great location, Clean fresh whilst indulgence with a view. AMAZING hosts. Found my ph I had forgotten - emailed me to let me know and wisely answered when I called my number assuming it was in the car!!!! Saved my day 100% worth booking Top pick for me in Oamaru
Great location, friendly owners who went out of their way to make our stay fabulous. Clean, spacious rooms. Good laundry. Fantastic spot to base our stay in Oamaru. Easy walking distance to walking tracks and town.

Very impressed with the gorgeous rooms which are very clean and comfortable. Great location and walking distance to two great eating places and the harbor. The hosts are very friendly and nothing was a problem. Will be coming back to stay thats for sure!!
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.
Near the centre of Oamaru and a minute's walk from the warehouse precinct, this is well-appointed pretty new accommodation. It gave us everything we wanted and we will definitely be coming back again.
