4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 29 Feb 2024
Welcoming owners. Rooms basic but well presented. No noise from road. Shower pressure great. Not much else needed. Kitchen basic but all you need. Good sized wardrobe is staying longer.

Shop across the road does great Chinese takeaways and their ice cream serves are huge!!!!

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.
