This hotel is centrally located on the main street of town. If you take the train from Dunedin to Oamaru, get off at the stop before the station. The train stops to let passengers off at the crossing on the main street of town. As you get off there is the information center to one side of the track. Cross...

I love the experience of travelling back in time and this is one of those places you feel just that, arriving late afternoon we were able to book Dinner (great menu) and take our selves down to the Harbour at dusk to see one of natures best 100's of little blue penguins come home after all day at sea feeding...

We've enjoyed a tasteful lunch at reasonable prices, sumptuous pizzas and rich cakes. Good coffee. The service has been OK, a bit slow at the beginning. The atmosphere of the place is great and suites the tremendous Victorian buildings of charming Oamaru. We'll return on our next visit.

The last time we went here we walked out after 20 mins of waiting to be given a menu. We had picked one up from the bar but were told to put it back and we would be brought one. 2nd visit went better. Menu arrived orders taken in good time but meal took a long time to come. They...

We just dined in without staying at the Brydone but were totally delighted with the high quality of food that we ordered. As a group we requested a wide variety and all the food came at the same time, hot and supremely delicious.

Stayed in house as we had a work function arranged in the hotel. All the staff were amazing, super helpful and friendly. Room had recently been updated so it was modern and fresh. Some other parts of the establishment were not so fabulous. Great central location! Overall a good place to stay

We stopped, by chance, in Oamaru just at the start of the Victorian heritage festival. Everyone was dressed up in the old part of town, people on penny farthing bikes were whizzing around and the town had a great atmosphere. We went to the information centre and ashes about accommodation for the night. Most were booked out due to the...

Our breakfast stop was fantastic as was our server, Isabella. Food was prompt, warm and yummy. Although we didn't stay overnight, we did take a tour of the upstairs and, yes, they were remodeling many of the rooms. The hotel has a lot of character and charming atmosphere.

We stayed one night at Brydone Hotel and I guess altogether it was pretty bad luck. We checked in and got a room at the back of the hotel, not really in the main building. The room was rather spacious but also had a very worn look. The bathroom was not really clean with hair from the previous guest still...
