A functional room, good size and with an updated bathroom in the newer section of the hotel. Nothing special except this was the best sleep in the most comfortable bed EVER. Superior bed linen. Clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Recommend. Plenty of restaurants and cafes within walking distance. The bar in the old section looked very cosy and inviting,

We had a refurbished room in this historic building. Very clean and comfortable. We really appreciated the character of the rest of the building. Great central city location with parking out back. The long walk through multiple, poorly lit, empty conference rooms to get to our room was a little odd. We were in town to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Totally our fault for not being organised enough to book a table for dinner on a holiday weekend and to find ourselves without too many options for dinner. We managed to book a table for 7.30 at the downstairs restaurant at The Brydone. We were looking forward to enjoying a meal, a couple of drinks and some dessert. The gentleman who made our booking for us and showed us to our table was very friendly, welcoming and professional, however once we had had ordered the experience went down hill. It was 8.30 before any food arrived. I was told the roast of the day was beef. When it arrived it was actually pork which I don't like at all. For the price and the wait, the meal was pretty unexceptional in terms of serving size and flavour. The staff seemed pretty distracted and stressed, and after the long wait for the main and the lack of an offer to replenish our drinks we just finished our mains and left. I don't mind waiting for a meal to arrive, if only the staff think to mention it and give a heads up. Or at least apologise for or acknowledged it. I know it was a holiday weekend and it was a clearly a busy night, but this is a large hotel in a fairly popular tourist destination so we would have hoped for better.

The Brydone Hotel is one of the many famous and historic buildings in Oamaru. It is within walking distance to the Steampunk Museum and the Victorian area of town, which has many bespoke shops. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and there is a delightful cafe/restaurant downstairs which serves meals all day. Reception was helpful and friendly and kept our luggage safe for a late checkout.

The Brydone Hotel is a really great piece of old Victorian architecture. The historic part of the hotel has 15 rooms, and the newer extension has 34. Also in the historic part is 4 spacious suites, 2 of them with spa baths.  We stayed in one with a spa bath and got a lot of use out of it, and marveled at the size and space on the bathrooms, especially with the high ceilings. Keeping in mind that this is a historic hotel, and perfectly in keeping with the nearby Victorian Quarter, they've done a marvelous job of keeping original features and a vintage vibe, while still providing all the mod cons of TV/spa bath/heating etc. We had meals in the Totara Bar restaurant and were quite satisfied with the range of options and excellent quality of the meals. Service by hotel and restaurant staff was quick, attentive and overwhelmingly friendly. We had a browse of some of the function rooms as well and they were all extremely spacious and well laid out.

We were pleased to be upgraded to a room in the old part of the hotel in keeping with the atmosphere of the hotel and the old part of Oamaru and we recommend this in visiting this beautiful white stone town. The hotel is well positioned for walking to the old town
