Room was nice and tidy enough. Very roomy. We had a downstairs one which are all designed for disabled people. Unless you need it, I’d recommend an upstairs room.

Warning: Don’t stay here if there is a risk of moderate to high southerly winds. The services boxes on the back of the building bang and make terrible noises in the wind!!! Kept us a awake for a good part of the night.

Highly recommend the restaurant. Great food and excellent service. Real friendly.

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
