We heard a lot of meeeh, meehh, through the night (lot of sheep nearby in pens, waiting to be transported the next day to ... uh, you know), didn't bother me at all - never heard sheep meeh-ing like that before - me, being from a big city, Toronto.... (we were told it's only 1x year, just happened to be that night:) Nice clean modern feel to it 2 rooms, basically what u need to prepare yourself some meals, fresh crisp - as if freshly starched bed linens - smelled great! On top of already great smelling mountain fresh air pouring in from the semi-open window. Really nice owners. Lucky them, they live in an amazing part of the world!
I only remember being stressed a bit when traveling through N.Z./AUSTR - all the smaller motels/hotels would close at 9pm or sooner. Us, traveling all day long and then trying to scramble to make it to our pre-booked hotel/motel before 9pm. Some make arrangements and leave ur room unlocked, but with some it's like 'not sure what's gonna happen, what we will find we we arrive at e.g. 9:30pm"

- 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 ... more less
