“an oasis!”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

Absolutely faultless; a welcome oasis in the midst of a demanding schedule. The owners went beyond what one could expect to be helpful and welcoming. Thank you!!

My partner and I decided to spend a few days in Oamaru. We wanted a nice place to stay....but within reason in price. This place was perfect. For what we got I really can't believe the amazing price. It was so clean you could eat off the floor. The spa bath was relaxing and the big TV and free wifi was a nice treat. Our only issue was the lack of channels in the room. Technically yes it was Sky but I guess we just expected more. The staff was really nice and I couldn't believe that they even gave us free milk for our tea! I highly recommend this place.

Very clean, comfy and the price was right. Spa bath in our unit.
The caretakers working (covering for the owners) were lovely and very helpful.
Would recommend - although it is on the main street, it is quite quiet in the rooms at the back (we were in room 18).

Room Tip: Ask if there is a room at the back away from the street.

Very nice hotel with helpful staff. We just walked in to this one with no real plans. Staff was very helpful and gave us a choice of rooms. Each was very clean modern, and the price was right.
Had we more time, we would have extended our stay in Oamaru. Great little town with very friendly people.

Room Tip: get the rooms away from the main drag, around the back. they are just as nice & much more quiet.

Had a very pleasant 2 night stay here. Highfield ticks all the boxes for this type of accommodation - clean, functional, free WiFi, modern tasteful furnishings. I really wish all motels in this price point were up to this standard. Only minor suggestion would be that the shower over the bath situation is not ideal for older or mobility impaired customers.
Highly reccommend

Stayed at Highfield 1 night when passing through Oamaru. (Drove from Christchurch, to Lake Tekapo, to Lake Pukaki then overnighted in Oamaru). Did not have a reservation, but a couple of rooms were available. New, clean facility. Laundry in separate area outside of room. Comfy bed and accommodation. Friendly staff and check-in.

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.
