Very handy to town and nice eating facilities. Compact but all you need in a motel. Always clean and tidy. Good value for month. Great base to visit Oamaru. The historic precinct is well worth a visit.

Friendly welcome, clean well-appointed room, comfortable bed, strong hot shower and advice on local attractions and restaurants - all you need for a short stay. Good location if you are intending to visit the Oamaru Blue Penguin Colony.

Rooms are a little small but nice. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Good location on the main road near restaurants (some really good Indian/Nepali) and movies. Saw sea lions on the beach just outside of town.

First the pros - welcoming staff, handily located to town, clean, great shower, equipped with what we needed. The cons - an older in wall heater that was adequate for heating but very noisy for sleeping. Single glazing so not great noise protection from outside...More
