Stayed for 6 nights with a group. Units very "tired" and not good value for rate charged.
Very sparce amenities - bring your own soap, hair shampoo etc.
I suggested on check-out that even one more mirror per unit would help as only one is in bathroom ?
Very noisy with trucks passing from 4am each morning.
Any upgrade should include double glazing to cut down noise level.
Next time in Oamaru I will choose something better equiped and closer to centre of town.

We regret that this was not an enjoyable stay. As we were fully booked over that period we had to use our older rooms which are kept for our budget travelers. Some of our rooms do have double glazing for the prevention of noise. Soap and shampoo dispensers are available in all rooms. We appreciate the comment about the mirror and have taken steps to rectify this. Thank you for your feedback.

We found the Armada comfortable and adequately equipped. The management, Pauline and Cliff, were friendly and helpful. It is a long way out of town so you do need your own transport. We stayed three nights and found it very pleasant. There was a restaurant next door but we didn't try it so can't comment.

We booked a holiday house that ended up being run by Armada. The house is located a minute down the road from the motels and is completely self contained. We had looked at two bedroom motel units which were a similar rate but we had far more space in the house. There is a queen in one bedroom, and two singles in each of the other two bedrooms. It is ideal for a longer stay as it has all the amenities of a home away from home. It is on the main road and we noticed the traffic noise but the kids didn't hear a thing. The house was immaculately clean but lacked any extra homely touches as it appeared that excess furniture and pictures had been removed at some stage. The owners, Pauline and Cliff were very friendly and were more than happy to let us have access to the house early. The house has an attached garage with internal access, laundry, separate shower and toilet, and a spa bath. My one gripe would be that there is no alarm clock and no mirror near a power point. It is a bit of a distance from the town so I would not recommend it if you don't have transport.
