We stayed with Linda and Paul in April when passing through Oamaru with four of our friends on a motorcycle trip around the South Island. Both Linda and Paul are very nice people and make you feel welcome in their home from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave. Although the stay was brief, the short discussions with... 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. Their knowledge of the area and special tips for nature viewing (penguins) and places to eat was so helpful and we saw so much more that... More

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. The house itself is amazing and they have done a fabulous job of upgrading their rooms etc in such a small amount of time.... More

As we were the only guests at the time, they kindly upgraded us to the large and beautiful downstairs room with fireplace. It was almost three weeks into our travel... More

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.

Beautiful historic B&B set on a big block with a little creek at the bottom of the garden. Paul and Linda are warm and wonderful hosts who greeted us with a welcome cuppa, and the rate is great value. Make sure you visit nearby public gardens too. Such a lovely place to stay in this beautiful town.
