“A cool place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

We booked the small studio room and were delighted - quite large enough for two in transit, well appointed, and pretty well silent, as it is connected to reception and separate from the rest of the motel. When we stayed the motel was mainly occupied with a 'heritage' motor tour who partied in the court in the late afternoon, and we hardly heard them - and not at all at night. A very peaceful stay. Make time to see the historic part of Oamaru, it's something special.

Room Tip: For no more than 2 the small studio is fine and excellent value.

clean well appointed room, we stayed in the upstairs rooms and found them to be above the standard we expected for a Motel, the Restaurant food was very well presented and reasonably priced. We would not hesitate to recommend this Motel.

We made a phone booking & upon arrival found everything was better than expected. Tracy is delightful, and a most professional host with a warm friendly welcome. Units are beautifully presented, clean & fresh, and the beds are likewise and comfortable. Furthermore, everything works including a widescreen TV with 50 channels. Also to top it off there is an excellent on-site restaurant. Altogether this is a great place to stay & very good value for money. We highly recommend this place to ensure you enjoy your stay in Oamaru.

Room Tip: Describe clearly to Tracy your requirements. You can rely on her to honestly provide a unit to suit.

I HAD stayed at this complex for a fairly long period of time and on a regular basis. I am a bald person and every time when I arrived at this place, I was discusted to find the room had been CLEANED and available for me. Upon entering the unit, I was shocked to find human hair on the handbason and the floor.I commented to the onwer and she apollogised. My next trip was exactly the same and the time after as well. I will never suggest people to stay here and hope you dont as well.

I have stayed at Heritage Court Motor Lodge after a long day of driving by myself and on business. It looked older from the road, but not shaby - so I thought I would take a look. The decor is dated but the studio unit I stayed in was in excellent condition - no motel smells, excellent carpet and very clean. On the basis of the motel alone I would give a rating of very good. The suprise was there was a restaurant attached and I attended motivated by the offer of a free glass of wine and tiredness. The chef is a real one, obviously professionally trained and the meal was the best chicken meal I have had in years. This motel provides one of best combinations of value you could come across and I highly recommend it.

We stayed in a studio unit for two nights last week. The unit was well appointed, very clean, warm and comfortable - and it was freezing outside. Although the motels were full, there was plenty of room to park. A pensioner discount is offered. We have stayed here before and it never disappoints. Having a restaurant on site is a bonus as it was so easy just to walk across the carpark to have dinner rather than find a meal in the town.
