Long Weekend Get away
Really nice hotel...only complaint was how noisy it was they really should have spent money putting in another pane of glass. Can see why they supply ear plugs.

Poshtel a Destination
Fantastic in every way. Clean, great facilities, comfortable bed and very cosy, interesting design, host was great and so very helpful. Couldn’t fault it in anyway. Will come back to Oamaru just to stay at the Poshtel, it is a destination it itself.

Fair 4.0
A mixed review
The hotel manager was pleasant and helpful, but the hotel was more attractive than comfortable. For instance, there was a lift, but then you had to walk down stairs and up a flight of stairs to get to the room. In the room, there was not one surface to put anything on. A couple of hooks for our clothing. No place to put anything down in the bathroom. It was a triumph of design over function and comfort. And for two people, there was one chair; a big stuffed one in a very small room. On the bright side, the breakfast was good, and the host was very helpful and pleasant.
