Exceptional 10.0
Spacious, modern, clean
We have stayed here before and deliberately chose to stay again on our next visit as we were impressed by the space, decor and cleanliness of these apartments. We weren't disappointed and would happily stay again.

Exceptional 10.0
High quality accommodation
We were in Oamaru to take in the atmosphere and sights of the Steam Punk festival and chose Highfield Mews to stay 2 nights with a 2nd party of 3. We were very happy with the accommodation comfort and appointments , only comment would be to have a more efficient heater, we felt the temperature in the rooms even with the heater going was on the cooler side. Fantastic electric blankets though and fast efficient non intrusive service from the management. Would definitely recommend and stay here again.
Fiona, nz2 night trip with friends
Very good 8.0
Great motel only issue was the bed had to put cushions under one side to stop rolling out of bed feeling
Kelvin, nz1 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
A quiet night off SH1
A quiet unit at the back of the property. We imagine that those at the front would be noisy as they are on SH1. Not a lot of space between bed and bathroom door, so although the bathroom fixtures are accessible, the room itself is not. Kitchen was suitable and bed comfortable
Andrew, nz1 night romance trip
Good 6.0
We were given an upgrade to honeymoon suite but this meant only one bed. I was with my teenage daughter who did not appreciate this change. Room had an adour presumably from someones previous cooking. Heating in lounge was insufficient for the size of room. We needed to wear our jackets to keep warm. I felt like a nuisance when I contacted reception. I have stayed here previously and it has been fabulous so I wonder if it has changed hands.

Beautiful Room
The room was lovely, fantastically comfy bed and pillows, ample and easy parking, lovely furnishings. We would definitely visit again but in the warmer weather, the room was too cold for us. Heating controlled by reception and only one heater for a big room.
