Great stay in Oamaru
We arrived before check in time but still got into our room which was very nice. The room was clean and comfortable. We wish we could have stayed longer as Oamaru is very interesting. Great Little Blue Penguin viewing. Interesting town with old Victorian buildings and a Steampunk museum.

Have stayed her quite a few times when visiting my mother in a home. This last visit was for the passing of my mother and they upgraded us to a bigger unit which was very thoughtful. Highly recommend
