12 blokes doesn't always sound attractive on a booking request but we got invited to Omau and loved our overnight stay with Karen and Lee... and Kaye at the local !Thanks for being so welcoming and friendly. Great breakfast before heading off... A long day for everyone.

The Okay settlers lodge was beautifully positioned with views if the mountains on your right and the beautiful west coast of New Zealand on your left. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was a treat with fresh cooked bread and homemade jams as part of the continental breakfast. It was peaceful and serene and we went and saw the local seal colony only minutes away and watch the sunset over the ocean. Really enjoyed our stay there.

We stayed in 10 different hotels in NZ and this was definitely the best of the lot in every way. The rooms were superb. Ours was like a 5 star hotel with kitchenette and lovely en-suite. The hot tub was great and the dining room. Great hosts.

Room Tip: rooms are in cabins of modern, high-end design

We stayed for 2 nights, (a family of 5 so had 2 units). This is an execptionally well run motel with immaculate units and fantastic facilities. Most units have a couple of little decks with lovely views across to the ocean from one side, and out to the hills from the other. Perfect place to stay and see the West Coast. Breakfast is served daily in the motel dining room and the Star Tavern across the road has lovely meals. Lee and Karen are the most helpful hosts ever! Thanks for a lovely relaxing stay.
