convenient position, very clean, helpful staff. my only concern would be that It was irritating to hear the shower water running down the pipes very clearly. so clearly that I thought the fridge was defrosting and turned it off only to find out later that it was the upstairs room people having shower. we stayed in 2 Bella Vista Motels and found them both the same so I think it is a design fault of the building. however I would stay there again but request upstairs.

You get what the Bella Vista formula dictates

Formulaic rooms means you know what you are getting. Tidy rooms with good standard of bed and tea and coffee facilities. Handy walking to old precinct and lolly and cheese factories.

町が小さいので、徒歩圏内で名所散策ができる。 また観光情報もしっかりと紹介してくれ、快適な滞在ができた

Olé greeted us and was full of suggestions for sights to see..he rang the Penguins office to check on availability of tickets ..his suggestion for the Thai restaurant up the street was spot on ..lovely food and no msg added to food meant no migraine for me . We only stayed one night but all was good

Great Stay

Posted Feb 1, 2016 on Lastminute
Pros: Closeness to our function venue, within walking distance and very close to many food facilities and the township.
Cons: Placement of cupboard above bench/fridge. Husband was stocking fridge, stood up and split his head open on the edge of cupboard overhang.
Location: Very close to many tourist attractions of Oamaru.
Almost everything was excellent, staff, clean room, great facilities in larger studio.

Pros: Location
Cons: Maintenance
Location: Walking distance to CBD.
Our location was great but our room needed some maintenance. My husband had to adjust the level of the fridge and also fix the icebox door. There was no catch on the bathroom window although there was a security latch but when it was very windy the window banged. We had a flood in the room due to a cracked kitchen tap. Luckily there was a plumber on duty who came and fixed it immediately. The cleaning staff need to watch and report problems in the rooms. Rooms were ok but looking a bit tired and worn.
