Friendly welcome, clean well-appointed room, comfortable bed, strong hot shower and advice on local attractions and restaurants - all you need for a short stay. Good location if you are intending to visit the Oamaru Blue Penguin Colony.

Rooms are a little small but nice. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Good location on the main road near restaurants (some really good Indian/Nepali) and movies. Saw sea lions on the beach just outside of town.

Wow. I find the place where all the hotels and motels with poor water pressure send the water to.

High pressure blast of hot water is lovely.
Free wifi is available but a bit patchy in performance.

Beds are nice but appear to be 2 single mattresses on a king base.

Good facilities nice and clean too.

Takeaways and thai eatery within 60 mtrs

First the pros - welcoming staff, handily located to town, clean, great shower, equipped with what we needed.
The cons - an older in wall heater that was adequate for heating but very noisy for sleeping. Single glazing so not great noise protection from outside and late arriving guests, and lots of condensation on the windows in winter (and no we didn't shower in the evening). We found the bed to be uncomfortable and it felt narrower than our queen bed at home. Overall we didn't sleep very well and I needed to use ear plugs.

Wanted to visit Oamaru historic centre. This motel is within walking distance of all the attractions. Room was clean and the friendly staff had it heated and ready for when we arrived. Shower good, heating adequate, bed okay.
