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.

Looked like it was just renovated and had a great kitchenette which we used for diner and breakfast. A half short block from the main... More

We booked this last minute in person. I had a broken foot, so needed a downstairs room, and also requested something quiet. Manager was very helpful on both counts. Our room was nice & spacious with a small kitchen. Good location, nice & close to several places and to the waterfront. Price was on par with rest of hotels we... More

A new hotel on the main road in Oamaru, a bit out of the main town but in easy driving distance. Incredible rooms, great little kitchen, amazing bathrooms and well set up. Friendly staff. A really wonderful stay.

My ground floor studio had a big bathroom, well-equipped kitchen with hot plate and microwave, pay TV with huge screen and comfy armchairs. Bed was great. Would be very suitable for someone with mobility issues. The walk to town centre would be about 15mins, all level. Free allocated parking. The only annoyance was very intermittent wifi that became completely unavailable... More

Almost brand new apartment-squeaky clean with all modern amenities including flat screen tv, spa bath, microwave & cooking facilities. Very well-positioned on the main street, but quiet with off-street parking & secure entry. Free wifi included & the owner provided helpful information about local tourist attractions. Would not hesitate to stay here again, was very impressed, great value for money.
