    Good location right on the edge of the Main Street but still an easy walk to the gardens and beach.

  • 2.0.Poor

    I was charged twice for the stay !!

    We stayed at Highfield Mews for one night in April and paid fully with my credit card upon check-in. 16 days later I found that my credit card was charged again for another $162. I rang the motel twice asking the owner to check and refund me but he refused to do anything and insisted that he didn't take the money. I have to notify my booking agent and also ask my bank to send me a letter of payment before he agree to refund me. Obviously the second credit card payment was charged by the motel without my consent. And the owner twice refused to check on his account or to rectify the problem!

    Spotless clean room, very comfortable and well-appointed. Clear communications and very convenient check in and out processes for a busy traveller. Comfortable bed and welcoming team :)

  • 8.0.Very Good

    The room and service were faultless- just lacks a little street appeal. Location wasn’t quite what we expected - from the photos on the website we thought we were near the water but these were more the sights of Oamaru.

    Lovely place to stay.

    Lovely, clean, quiet, comfortable. It was a pleasure to stay here. Walking distance to the Victorian precinct was easy.

    Modern motel. Very clean. Excellent bathroom and kitchenette. Shower over bath. Two dining chairs would be better than one. A pair of comfortable lounging chairs great. Some noise from unit above us on second night. TV and internet conncection good. Helpful office sorting out our conncection with our lap top (our problem).
