Everything about our stay was great. Great central location, comfy beds, well equipped, spa bath and easy parking. Used the laundry facilities as we are on a long road trip. I don't mind paying, but have stayed at cheaper places where it is complementary.

Brand new accommodation that ticks all the boxes - comfortable bed, great layout and plenty of room. Very friendly and helpful owner who kindly ran us into Oamaru to avoid the rain. Would definitely return.

This hotel was fantastic value - a perfect stop over on your drive back up the coast. The hotel owner/manager was very friendly. The room was comfortable and spotlessly clean; I could not fault it. Despite being close to the main road, it was pretty quiet - the rooms are well insulated.

Stayed in this accomodation for one night and moved to another motel for our second night. We called Highfield Mews first as is had the best reviews, and they were very accomodating over the phone when we asked for a late check-out due to family meeting us for a funeral. We didn't even call our 2nd or 3rd choice because... More

It is disappointing to receive your review. When you arrived prior to our check in time of 2 pm we were more than happy for you to check in as the room was ready but open being aired yet you complain about the heater not being on. You could not decide if you wanted to stay one or two nights,... More

We stayed at Highfield Mews for two nights and it was a great place. Everything is so new and the rooms are very spacious. Very clean and tidy place and couldn't hear any road noise from the room. We were given some great local information when we checked in from extremely friendly staff. It is about a 15 min walk... More

Here at last is a purpose-built modern motel that has been thoughtfully designed to incorporate all the amenities travelers can expect. The rooms are spacious and airy and the bed possibly the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The TV has been sensibly wired in properly (unlike the afterthought arrangements sometimes found) and a micro stereo system is also provided... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and had not pre-booked. It's a new motel and the rooms were spotless. Good location even though on the main road - not a problem with noise, unlike some other motels. Walk into town takes you along that road but it's not too far and you are soon into the main shopping street. Very... More
