This is one of the best motels we have stayed in for cleanliness and quality of furnishings. Stylish bedspreads and curtains, excellent carpet. Kitchen and all amenities,separate main bedroom, so it made a good impression and we were very pleased with it. Although on main road it didn't bother us as it wasn't noisy. The wi-fi doesn't last very long...

Had an overnight stay in Oamaru on the way to Dunedin, a lot of choices but not many cater for a family of five. We once again followed other families comments on TripAdvisor and were quite happy with the results. Nice place, peaceful but only 4 seats offered with the dinner table and queen bed felt quite saggy. All in...

We hadn't booked ahead and arrived in Oamaru needing somewhere to stay. Of the three motels we looked at this was the third and best ... friendly owner and nice clean room. Because it was getting late, we ended up with the large family suite of rooms, set well back from the road and with more kitchen facilities than we...

My husband and I stayed in the 2 bedroom family cottage around the back of the complex. It was so spacious, warm and had a great kitchen with an oven. The place may be a little outdated for some as its not exactly modern, its very clean and comfortable. Its not directly in the township but its a short drive...

What more could you ask for? This is a perfect kiwi motel. Other kiwi motel operators ought to take lessons from these people! They really have it down. Our unit (which we stayed in in March 2015) had exactly what we needed: it was spotless, it had a properly equipped kitchen (including full stove/oven), a nice flat screen TV, a...

We stayed for 2 nights. This is a well maintained and furnished motel. Very friendly and helpful reception, well equipped kitchen. No complaints at all. The road can be noisy with traffic. The free wifi was excellent.

Spacious room, lovely staff, very clean and tidy. The unlimited free wifi definately a plus. Would recommend and stay there again. If you are looking for a comfortable place to stay reasonably close to town take a look.

This was an excellent motel for the price. One of the cleanest and spacious I've ever stayed at, plus little extras like free internet, extra pillows and towels, free milk and cookies, decent sized tv, telephone in room, and excellent location close to town. We accidently left our phone charger there, and the lady called our cellphone to alert us...

Very clean. On main road comiing into town on north (as were alot of others). Owners friendly and more bits and pieces of coffee and hot chocolate nice. Bit of playground in garden good for our 6 year old. Bit far from Victorian precinct to walk but we had a car. We'd stay here again.

I stayed on 1/2. Their room is clean and nice. Facility is all good. People here are also considerate and passionate. Motel location is also good, easy-to-find, and near the downtown. I will definitely stay again next time.
