The motel was a little dated but it was clean, roomy, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom had plenty of space. It was also quiet inspite of being on the main road. It's just a pity that the restaurant wasn't up to much.

We had a night here recently. The hotel was rmarkably quiet and peacful considering it is attached to a tavern. The room was spacious and well laid out. It had a small kitchette with enough for a cup of tea and breakfast. Very nice.

I stayed a night on the way to Dunedin. The staff were so easy to communicate with. Booking was easy. The unit was well equipped and spacious with a settee and two lounge chairs but the heating was poor. There was no heating in the bathroom and the room had a small panel heater which took ages to warm up. How could you build a motel in Oamaru without bathroom under floor heating and a heat pump. Take plenty of warm clothes. There is good parking and its clean and comfortable if a little on the chilly side

We recently spent two nights here. The room was large enough that we weren’t tripping over each other. There is a huge bathroom/changing area. The kitchen is well appointed with an added bonus of a coffee machine. The shower is huge and has amazing pressure. The bed was a little firmer than we are used to but still comfy. The only down side was from children running around in the room above us, going to sleep solved that. And a couple of spare pillows would be great.
