Our host seem to have a dislike for Poppy's for some reason ? Other than that it was great Great motel for a stopover on the road from Christchurch to Dunedin. The Host is a barrel of laughs, and would love a punnet of Poppy's if your passing..... Even though its on the main road, its very quiet. Had a...

Stayed here as it looked as though everything else decent in Oamaru was booked out. Wasn't expecting much, and I was right. Was expensive for what it was. Room was spacious enough, and the bed fairly comfortable. I did enjoy having a Sky decoder with heaps of channels... The shower, while having good pressure, it sprayed in a million different...

Another lovely Asure motel. Super hosts, so very helpful, but about to retire and we wish them all the best. The studio was large and spotless, but dated. It had been kept in excellent condition with the paintwork having been touched up where damaged. Very clean and comfortable. It is well back from the road and we had no problems...

Staff very friendly. Wanted to have a bath but there were live and dead bugs and hair in/around the bath tub. Woke up in morning to have a hot drink but had frozen milk and all our other refrigerated foods frozen. But on a good note room was clean and good size.

Armada delivers well on the basics. Located on the main north road entering Oamaru , you will find large and roomy basic accommodation. We settled for a modestly priced 1 bedroom conjoined unit, which was flooded with space. Perfect for families, although no full cooking facilities available in this room, (check other rooms on booking) the microwave, jug and toaster...

This accommodation is good three stars. The decor, in the room is some what dated, however the rooms are clean. We had a front unit, close to the main road, which did raise the noise level. The complex, is some distance ftom the C.B.D. The complex foes not over promise on the three stars. For someone without transport, look closer...

Friendly reception. On the main road north of CBD. We had a road frontage room which could be a bit noisy for some. Trucks going past at all times but we work with the trucking industry so we're not bothered. Quieter rooms to the rear but I'm not sure they are are spacious as the one we had. Very clean...

Very clean and suprisingly quiet considering our unit was right by the highway. This motel suited our purpose well as it was closest to the venue we were at and all we needed was beds and showers. I would stay there again.
