ASURE Ambassador Motor Lodge
Ranked #3 of 18 Hotels in Oamaru
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 January 2012

Travelling with 2 small children is never simple and the folks at Ambassador Motor Lodge couldn't have been more helpful. The rooms were spacious, comfortable, clean and had everything we needed and more. Nothing has been overlooked including home baked muffins upon arrival, wonderful service, friendly atmosphere, local knowledge and travel advice. Easily the best accommodation on our trip around the South Island.

The owner had up to the minute information about the penguin viewing, and brought us warm muffins, right from the oven. The room was quiet, clean, well equipped, and comfortable. Easy to find.

We stayed for 1 night at the Ambassador Motel and very much enjoyed our stay. We were welcomed by a lovely lady covering for the owners and our room was ready early. We stayed in unit 5 and had everything we needed.

Jenny could not have been more helpful upon our arrival, providing us with fresh baked muffins and a lovely smile. Our unit was big, clean and roomy with a spa bath (unit number one) and views across to the adjacent park. Oamaru is New Zealands best kept secret stunning turn of the century limestone buildings, people dressed in Victorian costumes everywere ( don't miss Annies Victorian tea rooms just wonderful ). And little blue penguins to see as well, good restaurants abound and be brave and put your two dollars into the Steampunk locomotive and get a surprise !

Room Tip: Pay a bit extra for a spa bath, room one can be recommended
