          Owners were very friendly and were very informative about local attractions in and around Oamaru. Room and bathroom were very spacious, and spotless. Local supermarket and other shops were a short walk from the motel, would recommend this motel highly!!

          Stayed in a family standard alone unit. Was a two bedroom flat with big backyard and play equipment - we stayed in the rear of two. Clean, spacious, quiet and well equipped. Helpful hosts. Reasonably centrally located. Free wi-fi.
