Good stay

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Feb 2020
Stayed here for one night and had a very good stay. This motel is a very short distance outside of the central hub, and even though it’s on the main road into town, you don’t notice the traffic. The room was a nice size, with a lovely big bathroom and spacious and well equipped kitchen. The host was very welcoming. I’d stay again.

This motel is located on the main road into town from Christchurch and around 5 mins drive from historic old town centre.
Rooms are very good size, clean and well equipped with cutlery etc. Owner is friendly. Absolutely nothing negative to say, would stay again.

We stayed in one of the family units which are separate 2 bedroom houses, spacious and quiet plus they have a backyard with swings for the kids.
Clean, nice beds, well appointed kitchen and nice quality tea/coffee etc.

Great price, great room, nicely upgraded, double glazing. Friendly staff.

Booked to come back in two weeks.
Oamaru is a good place to stop overnight on a trip to Christchuch.

We are always trying to find a quiet place to stay, with a sunny aspect.
This place has that.

Reviewed 14 April 2019

Stayed two nights and found our ground floor studio unit spacious, clean, comfortable and extremely well-appointed. Although motel is on the main highway, the double glazing ensured a quiet night with minimal road noise and we enjoyed good sleeps.
Manager friendly and helpful. Motel close to the centre of the town, with plenty of eateries at hand.
Would certainly stay at Thames Court again on any future visits to Oamaru.
Highly recommended.
