Ambassador Motor Lodge: Welcoming accomodation

Nice and clean motel, rooms are big, clean and bright. You can park in front of your room, which is perfect to move your bags!<br/>The motel owners are lovely, we were offered some freshly home-made muffins upon our arrival!

Cedar Cottage Countrystay: The best countrystay in Oamaru

I have to recommend this delightful new, smoke free, 2 bedroom cottage which can sleep up to 6 adults. It is located only 3.3 kms from the Information Centre and the Historic Precinct. Handy to town amenities, Blue Penguin Colony and Yellow Eyed penguin viewing. Penguins have even been spotted on the beach just 200m from the cottage, along with the occasional fur seal and sealion !<br/>Cedar Cottage is a fully self contained unit with TV and DVD, dish washer, washing machine, dryer, iron...etc, and complimentary tea and coffee.

Enjoy the comfort of the homely, tastefully decorated cottage, sit back and relax on the extended sunny deck and soak up the peaceful serenity of gently rolling countryside and the day to day proceedings of running a Murray Grey Beef Cattle Stud, the varied bird life, or stroll along the beach which is only 200 metres away. If you are feeling more energetic take advantage of one of Oamaru’s finest golf courses right next door.<br/><br/>Your hosts, Ken and Diana, are a wealth of local information and will help to make your stay a memorable experience.
