              Value for money room was great and so was the spa!!

              I was very impressed with the room, I have stayed at other motels in Oamaru - this is the best one yet.

              Nothing that I can think of, everything was perfect.

              Friendly staff, beautiful quiet room, ultra comfy bed.

              Website says its a private balcony which we booked but was a balcony on a shared through fare which was disappointing as specifically asked in my booking about the private balcony. If you say something you should provide it.

              Would have to be one of the nicest motels I've ever stayed in

            • Family with children
              9.6

              Modern, very clean and well presented motel with spacious units and quiet yet reasonably central location on the main highway. Double glazing ensured no awareness of outside traffic, even though located on sh 1. The owners were helpful and unobtrusive and allowed a later departure (quiet season) which was greatly appreciated. We will stay there again.

              We found the light levels in the unit a little too low. Otherwise no complaints.

              Loved the great service great facilities especially the spa :-) All round great time. Only thing that was annoying was accessing Internet but even then that was fine

              Everything, I have stayed before and chose to go back based on my previous stay, also the price is great for such nice facilities!

              The Oamaru Motor Lodge was on the main road and easy to find. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and cozy during the winter weather. The beds were real nice and included an electric blanket! The staff were really friendly. There was a dairy nearby for those breakfast or bathroom essentials. It is a twenty minute walk to the historic centre and you pass the Whitestone cheese factory, and McDonald's on the way-- good for the youngsters. I would definitely book there again.

              No complaints. My family and I were in Oamaru specifically for the Steampunk Festival Weekend. It was our first time to experience the Festival and our first time in Oamaru. I didn't get the impression that the staff were that familiar with the festivities. I think the Lodge should take advantage more of these weekend events and play it up. I know there is a hotel in the heritage area that was fully booked up because of its victorian theme. For me and my 2 teenagers, the Oamaru Motor Lodge which had a clean ensuite, kitchenette and a flatscreen tv, was just what we needed for our quick-change into our victorian garb and a good nights sleep.

              Lovely decor and that it was being kept in its brand new state, everything was impeccibly clean so congrats to the management and fab cleaning team.

              That it wasn't within an easy walking distance of the town.

              I like the room's facilities. It is more than what I expected as a motel. It is really modern and it has big spa bath. Staff very friendly and very accommodating.
