What an excellent experience. Anybody that sleepover at this place should definitely try the restaurant onsite. That was one of the best meals ever. Do not know the chefs name but boy he is a hidden gem. Definitely worth going

Rooms remind me a bit of seventies décor and I don't mean in a negative way, just remind me of our family home(s) growing up. Units are clean, beds really comfy, the two rooms I have been in both had softish beds which I found great. There is a restaurant attached which I haven't tried yet but will endeavour to... More

Many thanks to the owners who accommodated us and our lovely dogs. Room is spacious, clean, complete. Backyard is big and so convenient for our dogs. Good value for money. Great choice for my business trip.

Stayed here 2 nights, nothing fancy, bit dated, but all we required. Clean and tidy, quiet, parking outside room. Comfortable bed, good value. Friendly lady in office and cleaning lady. Sky television.

An excellent place to stay for a visit to Oamaru, or as a stopover. This was our second stay here and both times we have found our units to be clean and comfortable with plenty of hot water and at a very reasonable rate. This time we had unit No. 20 on the right side of the driveway with a... More

The double room we booked here was very clean and comfortable with all we needed for a one night's stay and catering for ourselves. The lady on reception was very friendly and welcoming. The motel is a little out of the town but not a problem if you have a car. Recommended.

The room was spacious and the bed comfortable we chose a double spa bath studio which was a reasonable price of $l15 per night which we felt was worth the price. They have many tv/sky channels but the one thing they did not have was sky movies which was disappointing but in saying this whenever we pass this way again... More

We arrived late at around 9pm that day and the lady in charge still greet us with big smile and friendly chat. The price are reasonably affordable, rooms are spotless with very good facility. One thing worth mentioning is the water pressure, it was so great that I almost didn't want to end the shower! They have got their own... More
