Owners were very friendly and were very informative about local attractions in and around Oamaru. Room and bathroom were very spacious, and spotless. Local supermarket and other shops were a short walk from the motel, would recommend this motel highly!!

After a ton of traveling, our room was just what we needed. The beds were very comfy and have electric blankets which we loved. The kitchen was very clean and had all the cooking tools we needed. We also received great customer service from the moment we arrived until we left. I highly recommend staying here!
