Certificate of Excellence
Omarama, a Mountain Community in the middle of everywhere! Our 14 motel unit complex is situated in the heart of this mountainous region surrounded by a spacious garden like setting. This peaceful and quiet setting has a country atmosphere and stunning views of the mountain ranges, is just a short distance to beautiful lakes for boating or fishing. Tramping, walking or mountain bike tracks are also in our back yard with the Alps to Ocean cycle trail right here! We are a gliding mecca, you will see them soaring the skies, be tempted and take a flight yourself! Our 'dark' night skies are known for pristine starlit viewing, an idyllic way to view them is from a private Hot Tub and overlooking a small lake. Base yourself here in Omarama and be central to Mt Cook, Tekapo, Oamaru, Queenstown and Wanaka. See you soon

Clean, budget style motel/cottage. Wifi very weak,in spite of the fact, there was a small charge. Motel conveniently located for a short stay. We found the bed a bit uncomfortable and, as the windows were left open, there were mosquitoes in the room.

Stayed here for 2 nights, accommodation was clean, comfy and well appointed. Despite being near a main road, very quiet. Helpful owners.Short walk into town to access shops and restaurants. Close to Twizel and manageable for Aoraki/Mount Cook and Oamaru.

Good site to park up a van for the night. $20pppn for a powered site . The 2x toilets are clean, as are the 2x unisex showers, kitchen and washing facility. It's a bit noisy if it is near to the road.

We do provide 250mb of free Wifi and more can be purchased if needed, sorry no computer as we have not found it necessary to provide one as guests arrive equipped with their own devises these days.
