Warm welcome and comfortable”

Hospitalible owners, spotless and clean, comfortable

What a wonderful welcome after a long bus ride......a bottle of milk and fresh baked goods!! The owner, Karen, is exceptional and her wisdom/knowledge is so much appreciated. She booked our penguin tour and highly recommended that we stay with the regular seats. So glad we listened because the regular seats face the ocean and we can watch the Penguins swim in and make their way up to their nests which we doubt the prime seats have since they face the broad walks. There are opportunities to see them close as the paths run by their nests. She also provided so much information about Oamarau that helped make our stay more enjoyable. The room was extremely clean and comfortable.....we would highly recommend staying at Midway Motel.
