The first impression was awesome. Nice, quiet and clean. However an unpleasant thing happened. At 2am the fire alarm suddenly rang. We rapidly wrapped up and went downstairs. The manager found it was my room that triggered the alarm. So she started to suspect us in an unpleasant way. Who would cook at 2am? Was there any instruction saying the...

So sorry for your experience but alarms are necessary, when the heater is at max all night and the temperature in the room goes above 60c which triggers our heat sensors (which are there as protection) the alarm goes as this may be a fire as would our fire alarms. We have two alarms in the rooms 1. heat sensor...

This is a lovely property. Very clean and comfy and right in Oamaru itself. This motel looks brand new and the perfect place to stay. The lady who runs it was very helpful about things to do and where to eat etc

Lovely quiet room with plenty of light. Well appointed and very clean. Bathroom is tastefully decorated. Heater gauge was difficult to set right - only three markings that are spaced at large intervals. Location is very central. Positioned opposite the fire station.

We only had one quick night here but after spending sometime in older style accommodation throughout the Mackenzie District and other towns, it was so nice to arrive at a place that was new. We stayed in an executive one bedroom suite and a friend stayed in an executive studio. Both rooms were great. When we booked, we only had...

Rooms extremely clean including the bathrooms/bath which I am very fussy about, all seem quite new. Quiet location. All staff we met were lovely and the owner had a gorgeous friendly dog we loved meeting too (dog was well behaved and not running around everywhere but I couldn't resist a pat). WiFi a little slow but it gave us a...

I have been coming to this motel for business over the last 6 years. I drive a 6.5m light truck. (Children's shows) Never had any issues and staff couldn't be more helpful. Turned up this time, had no idea ownership had changed. The new owner Paula was so rude firstly not even acknowledging my presence in the office and then...

HI sorry you felt this way Rob, but ii would be good to take into account that when you walk into a place, 1. don't assume you can park directly in front of a garage door blocking someone in without asking them. 2. drive a extra large truck to a motel (cobbled driveway) without previously discussing where to park it...

Quiet and clean, but no Air conditioning and no fan so the room was uncomfortably warm for sleeping. Opening windows allows street noise. Otherwise, enjoyed our stay. Close to downtown and restaurants. Staff welcoming and helpful.

New, clean, convenient and super friendly are some adjectives that describe the Highfield Mews Motel. Some of the attributes are: jacuzzi tub with heater, plunger coffee, microwave, cooktop, and nicely appointed. Highly recommend this place! The wifi can be a bit shaky at times though.

A fantastic place for the first night of our holiday. Owners couldn't have been more helpful especially because my wife had sprained her foot and they quickly moved us to a disabled room. Very clean and high quality furnishings. Can't recommend more highly.
