This place was lovely. I start building really well maintained the Rangehood very comfortable X extra high ceiling, very spacious, really nicely renovated, the bathrooms, very modern, and for an extremely cold time of the year. The rooms and dining areas were quite warm and well heated

Overall the rooms were very good, staff very friendly. Breakfast however let them down. We had to wait an hour for our meals, poached eggs over cooked, bacon dry and almost beef jerky. The hash browns were inedible with no evidence of potato.

Room tip: Perhaps find a better breakfast venue.

The hotel was right at the center of Oamaru, with a lot of shops and restaurants nearby. The room was a bit dated but well kept and clean.

Oamaru is a lovely small city and this hotel is a good option for a short stay.

We stayed here to experience the old building. One night in the Spa suite and it was wonderful. The bathroom with spa is a lovely, heated room and the bed in the old part was very good.

The old lift still works and the sweeping staircase is grand. If you enjoy history then the nostalgia that staying in the old section of the hotel brings is great. The double hung windows still work and let in a wonderful breeze. We arrived on a Sunday night, the restaurant was closed, fortunately opposite the hotel is Fat Sally’s a popular bar and restaurant serving great food.

5 stars for the experience of the old world

Room tip: Bar and restaurant across the road, stay in the old section of a great experience

Room was dated, very hot-even with the sash window opened right up & a fan given on request. Bathroom floor tiles very slippery. Bed was sloping down at head-end, required 3 pillows. Whole building very old with uneven flooring. One lift was not operating so had to use stairs from ground floor up to our room & Whitson room where our function was. No toilets near Whitson room, lucky we had access to our room nearby, otherwise have to go down 2 floors by stairs to get to the loos. Even if all lifts were operating, we'd still have to carry cases down some stairs to get access to carpark around the back.No concierge seems to be available.Food was good & would consider going back for food only.

Room tip: Make sure find out exactly your level of accomodation eg exact facilities before booking. Check both lifts operating before confirming booking
