Good location. Nice large room. Good price. Staff were helpful. Internet so-so (as ion most places in NZ - limited downloads). We would stay again. LOVED OAMARU! PENGUINS WERE GREAT!

We stay in Oamaru each year and have always stayed at The Thames. This year due to booking late we had to stay elsewhere. What a disaster !! It has made us realise how much we enjoy The Thames for comfortable bedding, warmth and cleanliness. We have booked our room for 2013 We cannot fault this accommodation.

While traveling in New zealand recently we spent one night in the Thames Court Motel in Oamaru . We were two friends and had asked for separate rooms to sleep and we were given a whole house for the two of us with a large living room and two bedrooms and a nice garden around. The reception was very friendly and the house clean and quiet. The price was very interesting compared to other more expensive and not so good motels we had stayed in. We regretted spending only one night there and we suppose it must be very pleasant to spend a few days holidays in that nice place.

Room Tip: I don't know the other rooms but for several people (a family with children for example) the two...

Nothing special about this place but the bed was comfortable and the room had everything we needed. The TV was very small but it was good to see that the DVD player played AVI files, unlike most of the hotels we'd been to.

Stayed for two nights and booked a separate bedroom as there were 3 of us. Friendly reception and rooms clean and tidy. Only downfall we thought the lights were too dim In the evening. I guess it's a cost saving measure. Also the shower blocked which we forgot to mention to reception. However good price.

Only stayed for one night on route to Queenstown but was impressed with the quality of the accommodation and value for money. The rooms were spacious, we stayed in a one bedroom suite and was very nice. Would recommend. The staff are really helpful too and very efficient.
