Lovely room, comfy bed, quiet even though it is on the main road you can't hear the traffic. Pour yourself a drink and sit out the back and take in the lovely semi rural view. All within walking distance to a large grocery store where you can buy your wine.
Highly recommend a stay here, we stayed a week And would definitely stay here again.

Reviewed 27 February 2015

Stayed in one of the two bedroom units for one night. The rooms were scrupulously clean but very utilitarian. When we arrived back at the hotel after viewing the blue penguins - no more than 10:00 p.m. - we had to maneuver our way into our room in the pitch black as there were absolutely no exterior lights on anywhere. In fact, one of my greatest criticisms was the poor lighting in the whole place, which could be easily addressed. There was a single, naked bulb hanging in the living room ceiling, and in the room I occupied there was one dim ceiling light over one of the three beds in the room.
We spent $140 for three people.

We stayed in the 2 bedroom family unit, it is dated but has everything you need, and heaps of room for the kids to spread out. The beds were really comfy and the unit was very clean. They have a free washing machine and a clothes line to hang your clothes out on (my washing was even bought in for me!), there is a big field out the back with swings and heaps of room to kick a ball

Arrived in Oamaru in the afternoon and called into the I-site centre to ask if they could recommend somewhere inexpensive for the night. They sent us to this motel and we were given one of the units at the back. Very pleasant surprise - beautiful view over the fields, patio area with table and chairs and a very comfortable unit with great facilities at a very reasonable price. Also very friendly hosts. A well kept secret!

This motel is conveniently located close by to a major supermarket and service station and not far from the center of town. The motel owner gave us a very friendly welcome the price was right and the motel clean and the bed comfortable. We would stay again.

Room tip: choose a unit back from the road such as unit 6 it has a good view and patio
