While traveling through New Zealand's South Island, my family of 5 had two nights for which we had not preplanned accommodations. We wanted to explore the island a little bit as we drove from Queenstown to Christchurch, and our travel book recommended the seaside town of Oamaru, so we called several B&Bs or hotels there. Finding accommodation for 5 can... More

Stayed here for a night while we attended a show at the Opera House. What a great choice. The attention to details in all aspects is astounding. The hosts welcomed us with real charm. The welcome cuppa and biscuits and a meeting with Chloe and Bella, resident pets, made us feel so at ease. Room itself was grand, dimensions just... More

Linda and Paul were great hosts and we enjoyed their delicious breakfasts very much. We stayed in the Nullaboor Room which was downstairs and had an en-suite bathroom. It was spacious, elegantly prepared, clean... More

From the moment we arrived, Paul and Linda made us feel so welcome. Time to settle in to our spacious room upstairs and a welcome pot of tea and homemade biscuits awaited us downstairs.

We decided to have a weekend away in Oamaru to enjoy the sights. We stayed with Paul and Linda at their B&B for two nights and couldn't have enjoyed our stay any more if we tried.

Our one night stay was quite good. The lovely owners love to share tips for enjoying the area. The breakfast was more than ample, and they kindly offered tea, coffee, and sweets on arrival. The resident dog, cat, and chickens add to the atmosphere. In just a few months, several improvements have been made...should be quite the place over time.
