Nice hotel
Hotel was nice, staff very friendly. However, we didn’t receive the room which we booked, due to a request which we made at the time of booking. state that, guest requests cannot be guaranteed, which is completely and utterly fair, no disputing that. But I would rather our request be declined, and be given the Business Suite which we booked, rather than grant our request, and be downgraded to a twin room. We were offered a free breakfast the next morning, which we accepted, but I still feel slightly hard done by.

Fantastic stay - would recomend and would stay aga
My stay was very good - room was clean, in very good condition and friendly helpful staff. One small thing. Weather was extremely hot and no air con in room. Opened windows but as there was no breeze on 2nd day which did not help with cooling the room.

Happy guest - will stay again
Check in was quick and easy. Room was clean and tidy. Looked exactly like the promo shots on the web. Comfortable bed. Right in the centre of town. Couldn't ask for more.

Quirky looks, will stay again
The hotel is quite "quirky", conveniently situated and quiet despite its position. Good parking, either on the street or in the hotel car park to the rear. Our room was spacious and comfortable, if a little dated. The service and food at dinner in the restaurant was very good but our room service breakfast order was not taken from the door handle. The duty manager sorted this out by offering us complimentary breakfast in the dining room, which was excellent.

Accomodation in the centre of Oamaru
A great location in the main street, within walking distance of the Penguin colony, the harbour and the old precinct.

Nice hotel in a quiet town
We liked the Brydone Hotel. The hotel looks like a fine place for a meeting, with lots of conference room space. We were very surprised, though, at how quiet the town was. Not much open in the evening on a February (late summer) Monday night.
