“Come and stay for a cosy nights sleep!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2010

We stayed for one night and we were impressed with the decor of the room, which was warm, welcoming and clean to perfection. It was a cosy stay and we were happy in our little corner room. The spa was a terrific way to relax and unwind before jumping into a super comfortable bed with nice firm pillows to rest our weary heads on.. We found the hosts to be a relaxed and friendly couple who were more than happy to accomodate our needs.

We stayed for just the one night on a spur of the moment weekend away. If travelling to/through Oamaru we would stay here again in a hearbeat. It is on the main road but we were in one of the back units so very quiet, fantastic beds and immaculate rooms.

You've got to book one of the rooms with a 2 person spa bath, it is absolutely HEAVENLY. Totally recommend it!

Stayed just 1 night in Oamaru, was very pleased with the quality of accomodations at Highfield Mews. Stayed in one of groundfloor units. The fittings and furnishings of the unit are brand new and very stylish, highly unexpected for a motel.

Thank you for your feedback. We are highly disappointed to receive such negative feedback and wish that you had come to us with your concerns about the room straight away so we could have offered you another. It is very unfortunate that the whole of the Waitaki Valley had a power cut for 1¼ hours that affect some 10,000 people but this was totally beyond our control and as soon as this happened we took candles to all of our guests. The emergency lighting in our private stairways was activated as soon as the power went down and your room was one that was able to make use of this light. We apologise profoundly that our service did not meet your expectations and would like to offer you a complementary nights’ accommodation in the hope you will take us up on the offer and give us the chance to change your impression of Highfield Mews.

This is a great motel: the welcome is friendly, and the rooms really comfortable (even though my room could have done with a small dining table). My bed was exceedingly comfortable, with a lovely soft cosy duvet and a range of different firmness of pillows - I could have stayed in there long past the 10am check-out time! Broadband is free, a continental breakfast is available ... Great bathroom, with wonderful spa bath. Really nice. If you're staying in Oamaru, stay here!

The surrounding neighborhood belies this nice modern complex. The rooms are rather small for a one bedroom "Executive Suite" and there is no area to dine at in the room. It has a two hotplate cooktop however there is no dishwasher unit. The spa bath is very good after a long day on the road. The bedding is clean and comfortable. A green display neon bedside clock was rather annoying and tended to keep waking us up. On the second night we covered the display with a cloth.The internet service is reliable but could tend to be a little slow at times. If you seek privacy these units are not for you. All adjacent units have a birdseye view into the low lying executive units thus requiring the shades to be drawn closed 24/7 if occupied. The owners are very friendly and informative of the local sights ect. I would stay again however I would be inclined to stay in another unit or a higher level one.

From the welcome to the goodbyes to the sight-seeing advice, the service I received was impeccable. It felt personal and genuine and made it a genuine joy to stay.

The rooms are very well appointed. My room had a small kitchenette area, a very comfortable double bed and much-appreciated big flat screen TV. The en-suite was clean and a pleasure to use.

When I left I tried to think of something that had disappointed me with the motel and found that nothing came to mind. Highfield Mews was one of the best hotel stays I have ever had.
