In Oamaru for a cousins wedding and stayed here. Our unit has recently been refurbished and is very simple, clean and tidy. Double glazing was a great bonus to cut out a bit of traffic noise! They staff are very friendly and helpful! Thanks for a comfortable stay.

Our overnight stay was perfect! Excellent reception, was even walked to our room and shown around. Very welcoming! Cleanliness an 11 out of 10. Very good quality linen and bed. Modern cabinetry, fantastic bathroom, spacious room and real coffee. This motel deserves a 5 star rating! Highly recommended. Best motel experience we have had while touring the entire south island.

This is a very well appointed motel in Oamaru. From the moment we arrived we got great service and the room, which was spacious, had been recently refurbished.
