Clean well presented unit. Well equipped and handy location. Beds extremely comfortable and effective quiet heat pump. Not a complaint but a suggestion but a mirror in the bathroom would make shaving etc easier.

The bed was comfortable and the heat pump was a bonus there were no sky movies (which we were looking forward to.) We were greeted with a smile in reception and the manager was friendly. The room was warm.

One of Oamaru's largest motels - 27 units FREE WIFI and 50 plus SKY TV Channels. New local owners in on 1st July 2016, new name to go with the major overhaul happening at the moment. All rooms painted, day-core More upgraded. A variety of options from standard studios suitable for contractors, through to some of the best deluxe studios, one and two bedrooms to be found in Oamaru. Huge free parking for cars and boats and 8-10 parks for the biggest trucks on the road. Sitting alongside the Galleon Family complex that houses Tenpin Bowling, Gaming lounge, Restaurant, Bar and Function centre; both businesses are owned by members of the same family. Only minutes from the amazing Blue Penguin colony, Alps to Ocean finish line, many other fascinating places to visit including the old historic town, steampunk capital of NZ, home of NZ first shipment of chilled meat to UK just south of town, sporting grounds, high schools, too numerous to say. Come and enjoy our lovingly and passionately dedicated hosts knowledge of this awesome town where Doug was born and breed and Marjie definitely a local after 30 plus years here. Less
