Great historic hotel in the centre of Oamaru”

Lovely place to stay right in the middle of Oamaru, and a short walk to the Historic area. The penguin colony was just a short drive. The room was perfect for what I need, the bed very comfortable and the breakfast consisted of perfectly soft poached eggs. Highly recommend the Brydone Hotel Oamaru.

Nice old hotel”

we had a good stay at Brydone Hotel, The room is a good size, and the beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean. It is a old hotel, and depending on what part of the hotel they put you in. the front main hotel has a grand hotel fell. but we were put in the back section, the hotel is going through renovation when we went, so a bit of work was happening when we were staying, didn't effect us to much but trades people were working in the morning and during the day. Our room had recently been renovated with a new bathroom fittings. They have a lift that can take you to the second floor via the rear entry which is good for people with lots of luggage or need accessibility access. We will stay in this establishment again.

Clean, Friendly staff comfy beds

We chose the Brydone because of its location to where we wanted to go. It states 3.5 stars and that's what it is. Nothing mind -blowing but if you just want to stay one night it is ideal. Menus a bit lacklustre unless there was anything else on offer, we could only find the menu in the room directory. On the whole good-ish value for money

Fabulous old world hotel.”

Staff were very friendly & helpful. Loved the original part of the hotel, my only criticism is it was a shame they couldn't have redecorated the interior of the room with period styling. Biggest bathroom I have ever seen in a motel! Comfortable with everything you need supplied.

An Old Hotel that is in very good condition”

Location, Internet Included and Free Internet

Nice clean room in this traditional style Hotel. Location is excellent and great Pizza restaurant over the road. Internet was included in our package and speed was excellent. Restaurant prices were high so we ate across the street and that was a good choice. Breakfast was good. bed was very comfortable. No good parking solution at all, the parking area at the back was not secure and anyone with bad intentions would have had complete privacy, so we parked on the main street which was OK. I would however stay there again.

The staff is friendly and allowed for early check in. The hotel design looks classic and car park is available for hotel guests. Room is clean and bed is comfortable. There is a double bed and single bed so can accommodate 3 person. However there is a big fly inside the toilet and my husband and I had to chase it away from the room.
