Good option for Oamaru
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 8 Feb 2024via mobile
Motel presentation was modern, clean and tidy. Room was clean, no issues. No special effects to comment on, but it was a clean and comfortable choice in Oamaru. My husband liked the spa bath. Would be ok to stay again if in Oamaru. Good choice.

Nice, central location and easy to find. The reception is very helpful and efficient and the room spotlessly clean with everything needed and in good condition. Awesome shower pressure too, not something always found in motels! Good value too. Couldn’t fault for business travel.

We had the best service from the team at the Oamaru Motor Lodge. We were coming back from a concert in Dunedin and didn't make it to the accommodation until half past midnight. We had told them this in advance and they had left the room door open for us with the keys inside, with a little note on the table with the wifi password and some kind words. The place is lovely and comfortable, we would definitely come back!

This is a very quiet motel considering it is located on SH1. It was very adequate for a one night stay reflected in the price. There is plenty of room for parking. New World supermarket is nearby. The heater kept the room nice and warm.

I had to cancel a one night stay at this motel because of extreme weather in the South Island.
Our proposed motoring holiday was impacted by extreme weather in most of the South Island NZ.
Ice, snow and flooding impacted our ability to travel from Christchurch to Wanaka.
The NZ Transport Agency on their website advised road closures due to ice and snow, especially on the mountain passes.
I conveyed this information to the Management of the Heritage Court Motor Lodge at Oamaru and asked if a cancellation fee of one night's accommodation could be wavered.
This was met with a negative response.
Be aware of this situation, if you find yourself in a similiar situation.
Management at this motel have no compassion and the facility needs to be avoided.
