Great service, tidy rooms, friendly staff. Kid friendly .internet was problematic, but that would be my only complaint. Great that you could order from restaurant , delivered to your room. Clean and tidy!

Stayed here for a night only,room is clean and tidy,spacious enough ,receptionist was a temp ,we requested use of the wifi and were given a code however, we found is impossible to connect ,its very slow and receptionist says you cannot browse on net because its slow ,also its states 53tv channels available,we found the tv reception impossible we were able to view 4 channels but were so much disturbance,we turn the set off.so for us to stay there again we would want assurance that this matters have been rectified,because it was essential for us to have internet connection while away from home.

Hello, Thank you for your review. I am very sorry that you had so much difficulty with the internet. Some days it is only as good as our server provides and other days it is great and fast. We had experienced a number of internet outages from our provider telecom over the past few weeks. I had not had a break for 8 weeks, so I booked the weekend away. I do not know which room you were in as the signal is weak in two areas of the complex and we are working with our computer technician to boost the signal a bit more. Currently workers are installing Fibre to the door in Oamaru, so I am hoping we will get to connect to that in the next 12 months.
The television reception is unusual though as it is all through the SKY decoder. The TV is set to Channel 1 and then you change the channel with the SKY remote. 4 channels is no where near enough, even the freeview channels are up to about 14 channels. Guest Select has 50+ channels which does include radio stations. I can only imagine that a guest before you decided to change settings on the television and for this I am very sorry, I do not get to check them every day. We have also recently trialled removing the movie channels from SKY as we have the complimentary DVD library. We have found that a number of guests are not concerned by SKY movies, as they can watch a DVD of their choice when they want. These sort of things always seem to happen when I am away and the minder is not familiar enough with everything that happens.
Hopefully you might give us another chance and I can make sure that it all works well.
Again Thank you for letting us know
Kind Regards
Tracey Donohue

Spent one night in sunny Oamaru. Hosts were friendly and nothing was a problem. Considering it is on the main highway my unit was very quiet. Great bed, bathroom with spa bath and a small kitchen capped off a nice unit. I had a nice meal bought to my unit from the on site restaurant.

Very cheerful welcome in this motel, very large comfortable room, clean. Nice breakfast, even got to speak Dutch there! Good advice about our plans (Doubtful of Milford). Here you will get your money;s worth.

my husand and I recently stayed for one night over the Christmas/New Year period and were pleased with the size of the room even though the walls were a bit dated (fake wood panels). The room and bathroom was clean and tidy and for $100 a night double we felt it was money well spent. We were provided with a small bottle of milk which was great as this is preferable over those UHT pods. We were in a ground floor unit which was quiet and the bed was comfortable. Would stay here again.

What a joy to find this place! The manager was extremely professional, cheerful, and helpful. Great value for money. We stayed in room 9 on the ground floor for 3 separate nights as we were travelling around this part of New Zealand. The room was clean, smelled fresh, we were able to park just in front of room. Room was well appointed with a little kitchenette. Everything worked. The bed was one of the most comfortable we have found outside of home! Thank you indeed for making our stay in Oamaru so trouble free.

We booked the small studio room and were delighted - quite large enough for two in transit, well appointed, and pretty well silent, as it is connected to reception and separate from the rest of the motel. When we stayed the motel was mainly occupied with a 'heritage' motor tour who partied in the court in the late afternoon, and we hardly heard them - and not at all at night. A very peaceful stay. Make time to see the historic part of Oamaru, it's something special.

Room Tip: For no more than 2 the small studio is fine and excellent value.
