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.

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.

Gem amongst Old tired Oamaru
It is excellent property. That absolutely oozes character. They have spent lot of money designing the arrivals lobby and all rooms are individually decorated. I stayed in a room which was golf themed. Very well appointed room with big bathroom. Massive bathtub for great soak. Everything is near new and very functional. Only issue I had is the noise. They are beside a major supermarket and at 6.45 am trucks started pulling in and there forklifts made a lot of noise. This on a Saturday morning. I didn't care as I went to bed early and had got my 8 hours. But would have been very angry if I arrived late and wanted to sleep in. Otherwise excellent stay. They even have an art gallery on site. Which had some very interesting paintings on display.
