Stop over

Posted Jul 9, 2016
The check in process was arduous. Having a restaurant on site was fabulous. In general it seemed fairly expensive for the facilities.

Handy to town

Posted Jun 5, 2016
Pros: Friendly
Cons: Bathroom and cooking facilities
Location: On main road but still close to town
Suprisingly quiet. Staff very friendly and helpful and when asked to change room for a bath and something to heat food in, were very obliging. Reasonably priced However having vinyl on the walls while old fashioned is fine, where it meets the bath, it has lifted and mould can be seen etc. Time to upgrade to paint, hardiglaze or tiles. Otherwise, great bed, nice lounge, very roomy and appreciated being able to take our small dog. Would have liked some facilites to coook on though. Overall, pretty good and would stay again.

Comfortable motel unit at a reasonable price

Posted Jan 23, 2016 on Wotif
Pros: It was reasonably priced and comfortable to stay in.
Cons: The water services are a little noisy when the toilet is flushed when others are sleeping.
Location: Some distance from the town center, but has a very nice restaurant adjoining it, so no need to return to town for a meal.
A very nice overnight stay.Clean and comfortable. Would recommend to others.

Photos do not match the rooms

Posted Jan 20, 2016 on Wotif
Our room was a completely different room than the modern airy room photos on this website. It was dated and ugly, circa 1979. We were so disappointed as we hardly go away at all, and were so looking forward to a couple of days at the lovely motel rooms that were pictured. It was extremely noisy as the bed was right by the door, with a foreign tour bus right outside chattering and clattering late at night and early in the morning. The bed was a roll-together special, pushed in the corner with no beside table or cabinet and no power point. Very disappointed.

Family vacation to see penguins

Posted Jan 7, 2016 on Hotels
The motel is located at the outskirts of Oamaru and the staff was very good at providing us with information about the penguins. Although the motel was clean, the decor was very dated. The water from the deposit to the toilet was running all night long which made for a difficult sleep the first night. The beds and pillows are not the most comfortable either.
