Poor 2.0
Cold, dark apartment
I was very disappointed. This is rated as exceptional by the last reviews were great. So I booked for two nights this was our final two nights of a tour around New Zealand. We were given a family apartment which had not been refurbished. The place was damp, cold, very dated and smelt or mould. We turned on the fire which was very old and very noisy also it smelt horrendous. I feel that this was very dangerous. So we either had to suffer the freezing cold or a noisy fire that gave out fumes! We did speak to the receptionist and he said well this place hasn’t been refurbished yet ! It was nothing like the photos of the rest of the motel ! We were never offered an alternative room and couldn’t wait to leave. I can honestly say after staying in various motels and air b&bs on our 40,000 km tour Of New Zealand, this is the worst place we have encountered. I don’t usually complain, I just wanted to warn people that you may not get what you think you have booked. Also the fact that this was also the most expensive room you are able to book ! Very very disappointed ending to an amazing adventure !

Room was exactly as detailed on website with all the facilities listed available. Room was very clean, comfortable and warm. Spacious bathroom with good shower. Tea and coffee available. Stove top available if you want to prepare some meals onsite. Handily located short drive to Oamuru centre. Easy check in with friendly staff.

Good location and handy to most amenities .
Nice and handy to most amenities. Situated on a reasonably busy road but we didn't experience any noise to detract from our stay or staying again. We were made feel very welcome on our arrival.
