    Decor is fantastic. This hotel is well worth preserving. It is clean, comfortable, not as spacious as some but perfectly adequate. 150 year old floorboards tend to creak but treat them as burglar alarms. A delightful place to stay.

    Central location in Oamaru, warm and comfortable. Friendly staff, staff who've been there for quite some time - lots of familiar faces. Good value toast/beverage breakfast!

    Coffee/tea service with breakfast makes a poor start to the day. It would be better if the hotel provided either hot water in a zip (rather than flasks) or even better, offer tea in a pot for no extra cost. A little point, but it makes a big difference. Offering mugs and cups at breakfast time would also be great.

    Fabulous

    We liked the conveience of being in town. The quaintness and history of the hotel. The rooms were basic but clean and retained to a certain degree the character of past times. We were not able to sample the food as we were visiting friends for a Birthday, but the restaurant looked attractive and inviting. We felt it was good value for money and would stay again.

    Friendly welcoming staff. Relaxing Old world atmosphere. Handy to shopping and sight seeing. Central. Spotlessly cleaning.

    Had trouble connecting to internet, however, internet provider was in the middle of upgrading their website, so a few hiccups. Thin walls, so noisy plumbing from adjoining rooms.

    Staff were pleasant and there when you needed them. Liked being in the middle of town - a good car park facility with well labelled doors to access the building from the rear.

    We did not have hot water in our shower, the first morning we stayed - as we were heading out to a workshop for the day this was inconvenient and left us running late - as we took baths before we left. The problem was sorted by staff who rung a plumber to correct the problem - we had a hot shower then 2nd morning.

    Very good

    Friendly staff. Lovely food, nice having a restaurant in the building. Very warm.

    Having a room near the corner on a Saturday night, it was very noisy. Room more dated than I expected but warm and clean. No electric blanket. Picture on the website was nothing like the room I stayed in

    Fabulous location in town, glorious heritage building - loved the sweeping staircase from the reception up to my room - I would imagine myself in an evening ball gown swishing down each time. clean and tidy room, great bathroom though I massed having a bathtub. Comfortable bed - had two great nights of sleep.

    My only (tiny) complaint was that the room was not warm enough - even with the little radiant oil heater, it was cold, although I noticed that the corridors were well heated.
