Acceptable”

There was a big mess up with this booking in spite of us having booked at least a month ahead and having received your usual verification which we copied and took with us on Friday 15th February 2018. On arrival at about 5.15pm we were told we did not have a booking and their motel was full. We were told they had not dealt with you for about two years and their details had not been removed from your website in spite of their request to you to do so. They made little effort to help us find alternative accommodation at a time when Oamaru was fully booked. They said we could stay at a Backpackers!! We were fortunate in being able to find alternative satisfactory accommodation but it was not easy. Previously we have been very happy with Agoda Service but not this time. When I looked at your website today I noticed the Ascot motel is still on your books. Please remove them from your website and explain what from your point of view went wrong.= and reimburse us the extra $120 spent

Good facilities, clean, fully functional, spacious

Oamaru is a well spread place and this is on the outskirts so it is a couple of miles from centre. That said we enjoyed our stay. A friendly, efficient and more than helpful reception. the room had all the facilities we expected and was clean and in good order. It was on the main road but we weren't bothered by traffic noise (and we are light sleepers). We would be happy to stay there again

very friendly service, recommended places to go in oamaru, and room was pre-heated before we arrive (a cold day); which was brilliant. room is big and clean. only a few improvement areas: the heater is too far from the bed, thus resulting an uneven flow of warm air. toilet flooring is cold too. but generally, stay is comfortable.

Well priced motor inn in magnificant town”

Friendly staff, clean accommodation

The motor inn was almost on the outskirts of the town on the main highway. However, quite a lot of the town apart from the central area seemed to cling to the highway, in and out of the town, so many of the motels were in that situation. A little noisy with trucks etc, but not bad. Next to a family restaurant, but not a problem noisewise from there, but we stayed during the week. The motel was clean and comfortable, but a little dated. When staying in Oamaru again, would choose a motel closer to the centre of the town. We were absolutely "gobsmacked" by the architecture and number of historical buildings in this smaller town. We were amazed that so many buildings have been preserved in pristine condition and fortunately the town has taken advantage of these magnificant establishments, with an Opera House, galleries, tourism displays. The wharf area is currently being developed as well, but there is even now there's a lot to see, explore visit and buy. We had only planned on a one night stay in Oamaru, but wished we could have stayed longer.
