“Phenomenal service and great accommodation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

What a positive influence it has to have a great host.
The accommodation is perfect, good value for money and every tip from the owner is gold.

We stayed in a two-room unit in the middle of the property. Upon flying in to Christchurch from Sydney and a 3-hour drive, the first touch-down was particularly important: it was so good to be expected and be informed about the various options in Oamaru. We were bluffed by the brand new, high standing of the unit including spa bath, wifi and 2 tvs. One recommandation: the entrance to the motel is not on Thames street, so the GPS might keep you turning in circles. It would be helpful if the website would indicate the street of the entrance as a GPS address.

Stayed for two nights. As other reviewers noted, the property is new and the rooms are smartly furnished. Upon check in I was placed in an "accessible" room. I didn't realize when I booked (my fault) that the room would only have a shower. I called to see if I could be moved to another room and could not as they were fully booked. The next morning after folks had checked out, I was upgraded free of charge to an executive studio with a spa bath. Moreover, when I broke a glass and left a mess in the room, the staff could not have been more pleasant about it. If arriving by bus without a car, be advised that the hotel is some distance to the city centre and there is no public transportation. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

We stayed at Highfield Mews for one night in Feb 2012. The units are new and have been built to a very high standard. In a quiet position dispite being just off Thames Street . Our unit was spotless and very well equipped, the bathroom was first class.
Ross and his wife were helpfull and keen to assist with our onward travel arrangements. This motel is to be highly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms we saw were of the same high standard!

Stayed here for 2 nights in Feb 2012. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We had a 1 bedroom unit. Fitted out very nicely. Bathroom was beautiful. All felt brand new. Great thermostat controlled heating. Short 2 min drive to the town centre.

Out of 5 hotels we stayed at in New Zealand, this was the nicest in terms of room quality. Would stay here again for sure.
