“Plesant stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

Enjoyed two nights during end of August at Omahu, Excellent service, value for money and friendly hosts. The breakfast was of very high standard and on time. My wife commented how clean the unit was. Quiet location but close to town for easy access all around.

I love this place the absolute place I have ever stayed!!! Best room, best service (a lovely couple, seems like a a family business).
Room was lovely and clean on arrival and good kitchen facilities and was cleaned while we were out on a wine tour the second day and love how they had recommended restaurants & takeaway menus which we used, made it super easy when we had no idea about what was good.
Easy to arrange wiifi and cheap as (would be great if it was free) but this is definetly not a complaint when you compare the prices of the rooms and the great service, I dont mind paying for wiifi with this.

My wife threw a dart and booked this place without our usual "due diligence". What a lucky shot that was!
This motor lodge is well located, right opposite the Hastings Hospital, and a short walk to several takeaway shops, petrol stations and diary's. It is only a short drive into the centre of Hastings.
Our room was a one bedroom unit, with a queen bed in the bedroom, and two singles in the living area. The beds were very comfortable, had down underlays and pillows, and plenty of extra blankets if you needed them. The rooms were very clean, tidy and modern, had a heat pump which kept the place very nice and warm, and a TV in both rooms - with a variety of channels including Sky. The bathroom was a nice size, and included a spa bath. The kitchenette has a microwave, and two hot plates. Certainly adequate for what we needed. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, and our room was nicely serviced everyday. Our room was right beside the guest laundry, so was a bit noisy at times, however, we never had any problems after 9-30pm. Whether there is a policy about no laundry after that time, or just that other guests were considerate I don't know. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed good. Room 8 is close to the guest laundry, but we had no real issues there. Room 2...

My husband and I just got back from 6 nights in the Hawkes bay. I am so glad we chose omahu. The room was spacious and well appointed. We stayed in one of the one bedroom spa rooms which was fantastic. We cooked in the room a few nights and the kitchen was well stocked.
It was quiet even though on a busy road. I never actually heard any of the other guests even though it was full every night! The black out curtains were fantastic!

We stayed one night and chose Omahu Motor Lodge because of its handy location to the Taihape route we were travelling on the next day. It was also described as the newest property in the area. The room was spacious, had a huge flatscreen TV, a very nice bathroom and well-supplied kitchenette which enabled us to cook breakfast. Lovely fresh coffee and tea with cookies plus good toileteries were supplied. I would definitely stay here again. Many thanks to Brian for great hospitality!
