I stayed here twice in one week. The first night was booked through their web site and when I arrived I was shown to a very nice studio unit. The heating had already been switched on which was much appreciated. The second visit was a few days later on my way back north. I didn't booked but just drove in. This time I was given a 1 bedroom unit and again it was already warm.

The host couldn't be more helpful and this really is a standout property.

We were visiting Oamaru and as we were arriving late we phoned to book in for 2 days. We were not requested to supply a credit card for security or deposit.We were given our room number . On arrival later in the evening our room was unlocked,lights were on and heating.Next morning a newspaper was at our door. All the comforts of home. We met our hosts next day they were so friendly and helpful. We have travelled extensively this would be the first time we have encountered this standard of hospitality.

This is an almost brand new property that seems to attract the professional traveller. We see a lot of rep type vehicles parked here. It will also work well for families. The room is large, the kitchenette well set up and complete. The bed comfortable and plenty of pressure in the shower. Haven't tried the spa bath yet, although it looks inviting. TV is large but not HD, and there is no international news, yet all the Sky Port channels. The location is handy but not easy walking distance from town. Warmly recommended

I chose this place as it was ranked 1 on Tripadvisor and it was a great choice. Friendly greeting on arrival, modern unit, well appointed, tastefully decorated and fantastic shower water pressure. So often its a drizzle but this was superb.

Room Tip: All rooms looked good, they are a mix of free standing 1 and 2 level buildings.

Excellent motel in every respect: clean, spacious, quiet, great bathroom, cofortable bed. Hosts are friendly, helpful and nothing sems too much trouble. Highly recommend. Bean on Thames is great place for breakfast or brunch - excellent food and coffee (closed Sundays unfortuately). Portside is v good for dinner. Ensure you spend time in the Victorian Precinct and enjoy the magnificent buildings on Thames St.

We had a one night stopover in Oamaru in April. Not having booked any accommodation we were lucky to across upon Highfiled Mews. We discovered new, tastefully designed motel accommodation which suited our requirements perfectly. The bathrooms have been tiled and finished to a high standard. There was only one problem .... the bathroom extractor fan always came on with the light and was quite noisy. Otherwise, we had a very comfortable and stay and would not hesitate to recommend Highfield Mews to others searching for a motel. Oamaru has many new and not so new attractions which we would have liked time to explore. We plan to spend an extra night next time.

Fantastic place to stay in Oamaru. Spacious room with kitchen area and separate bedroom. Lovely bathroom with spa bath. Very clean and handy for the town centre and especially whitestone cheeses. Definately the place to stay if stopping in Oamaru!
