Quiet,clean,friendly.Easy access. Good parking. wifi.Comfortable.
it was easy to find. The room was nicely laid out and comfortable. Staff were very helpful and friendly.
TV channels were very limited. No fan to circulate the air.
Easy to find.
Well settled facilities and really nice staff... Will stay again
Have to re log-in wifi as they give only 100 m at a time which is a bit annoying though its under nz law
The location is a little way out of town but the room and comfort are among the best we have seen through our trip around the two islands. The bedroom is separate to the lounge and shower area which helps cut out sound from the busy road that the motel is on.
A quite a way out of town.
We loved the location of this place - right in the middle of the town, close to the sights and restaurants. The kids (16, 13 and 7) LOVED the trampoline in the yard. They also have a playgym for younger kids. The room was clean and spacious. The owner was friendly. This was a great choice for our family on our way down the East Coast.
Spacious and well kept
A bit far from town centre
Friendly staff, convenient facilities.
Shower not warm after long time use.
Apartment is big and clean, felt like home away from home. Short drive to town and penguin observation area, less than 15min.
Staff very helpful and motel was equipped sufficently.
Excessive road noise, day and night.
it was very quiet
Оптимальный вариант переночевать, классический Мотель, все нормально/Good choice for one night Stay
Номер не новый, не очень чистый/Room was not new and not so clean
We liked everything. What else needs tired traveler? Shower, dinner, rest. And the next morning on the road again.
The owners were friendly and the facilities were clean and adequate.
On our way to the south part of the South Island we stopped for one night at Oamaru. The one bedroom apartment was at the back side of the motel and so very quiet. The rooms are huge and comfortable. The kitchen well equipped.
The motel is quite outside of the center.
we thought the cleaner was very nice making sure every thing was clean in the unit and also moving owners car which was parked in our parking space
there was no sky ,only 5 tv channels, every time we used the tv remote the heat pump came on which was right beside the tv .internet was minimal.
Repeat visit from last year and just as good - will be our place from now on
Comfortable bed. I had a room at the back so wasn't disturbed by traffic noise. It was quiet. Staff were flexible and enabled a later checkout. Adequately heated. Clean.
Highly perfumed cleaning agents. Poorly fitted door which rattled all night in the strong wind.
Central (for us) location and handy to the lovely Northside restaurant at the hotel just along the road.
Traffic noise at night - we were not used to the heavy traffic.
We were in a back unit so it was quiet and had a really nice rural view.
Toilet, back wall had stains on it . We gave it a clean.
Our unit 7 had everything that all of our other accomodation didn't. Space to move & relax. Excellent kitchen equiptment. Easy to use laundry.A very quiet sleep was had. The warm (heated) floor in the bath & toilet areas. None of the others had this feature. When you're doing a self-drive holiday as we were, this is the place you hope to find everywhere.
Nothing not to like.
My Australian friend and myself were given lovely quiet rooms at the back. Loved waking up to the sheep in the next paddock and didn't hear any traffic at all during the night.
Clean, modern and comfortable stay, highly recommended.
Cleanliness, close to wildlife viewing, quiet. An oldie but a goodie.
