“Words fail me...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

Here at last is a purpose-built modern motel that has been thoughtfully designed to incorporate all the amenities travelers can expect. The rooms are spacious and airy and the bed possibly the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The TV has been sensibly wired in properly (unlike the afterthought arrangements sometimes found) and a micro stereo system is also provided for those who sometimes prefer the radio to TV. The cleanliness sets a new standard and it was almost embarrassing to leave finger prints in the bathroom! All the fixtures and fittings are of the highest standard, even better than some homes of my own I've lived in. Immaculate.

We were here with family in April and what a great find. It seems new so everything is sparkling, clean and so comfortable. GREAT beds, had the best sleep ! Very helpful staff and the location etc etc is just perfect. Would recommend this place without hesitation.

We stayed here for one night before driving onto Dunedin, and wished we'd stayed for two!
Reception staff -welcoming and very helpful with info on the area (& gave good recommendations for food!)
We stayed in the Executive Spa room - very new, immaculate (cleanest room we've ever stayed in), warm (with heavy curtains to help with the cold), and very quiet.
Had a "proper" hair dryer (not the type you have to keep pressing to work), decent kitchen area, plenty of space.
The wi-Fi was a bit patchy, but apart from that - it was 110%!

Room Tip: Spa suite was a little dearer - but a great little luxury on a cold night. Our room was at the back...

We stayed here for 2 nights and had not pre-booked. It's a new motel and the rooms were spotless. Good location even though on the main road - not a problem with noise, unlike some other motels. Walk into town takes you along that road but it's not too far and you are soon into the main shopping street.

Very helpful people on reception - great local knowledge and good advice for onward travel, based on personal experience.

My partner and I stayed here on the 30/6/14 and arrived around 5pm to a warm welcome, the guy at reception had been up and turned the heating on as it was a very cold evening. The room itself is probably one of the best motel units we have ever been in, the decor is sumptuous and the everything sparkled and gleamed. The bathroom is wonderful as well. Thank you for a lovely quiet stay in the nicest motel.

Room Tip: We were at the back upstairs, good views and very quiet.

I highly recommend this location as a place to stay when visiting Oamaru. We stayed for two nights and as we hadn't pre-booked we had to change rooms, however the staff made this move so easy that it was barely noticeable. The rooms were spotlessly clean, spacious, well provisioned and comfortable with free wi-fi and free bottles of milk. All the staff were helpful and friendly and Ross the owner was wonderful. He gave us helpful tips on places to eat out, places to visit and even let us us his BBQ grill one evening. He even checked that we had enjoyed our time there on a number of occaisions. There are two type of rooms and the slightly dearer room has a wonderful spa bath - I highly recommend this option. The location is just a mile from the main town centre on the main highway so easy to locate. When I come back to Oamaru I will stay here again for sure.

Room Tip: Take a room with a spa bath.

Stayed one night early April. New, quite large complex, immaculate rooms, bathroom was lovely, large, modern and the vanity is one of the biggest we have ever seen, just like being at home again. Bedroom had one queen and one single which was just perfect for leaving a suitcase on, carefully of course. The linen was good quality and the room was very quiet and private. I think there might be a school or park behind?, not a problem though, just could hear children's voices now and then. There seemed to be some two level units also.

The kitchen was terrific, parking directly outside, Manager was lovely, very helpful. Short drive or you can walk to the Old Town which is a very interesting place, old sheds converted into shops in a very arty precinct. Would have loved to buy some possum coats, gloves etc but it's far too hot at home, so had to be satisfied with just looking. Dinner at Cucina was fabulous, remember to book as it is probably the best restaurant in town and very popular, great food and service, note that is not a budget eating place, rather it's close to fine dining and so meal cost is relevant and well worth it. We had no problems whatsoever with the wi fi.
