    Comfortable and clean, relatively budget motel. Owner reluctant to have guests over Xmas Eve Xmas but we assured her we didn't require any servicing so that was ok. New World and a Caltex just down the road. Longish walk into Oamaru

    Affordable weekend away. Greeted by lovely staff at reception. The room was very clean and tidy. The next day we were given yummy home made muffins, kids scoffed them. Would definitely recommend this motel.
