Stayed here with my mum for a stop over on our way to Geraldine. Spacious room and separate bedroom (which was small, but hey you only sleep in the bed) You need to pull cooking elements out of the cupboard if you cook at home. Plenty of heaters to keep you warm(very important when it is cold 😉) Make sure...

Stayed here for a night and had everything we needed and more. The unit we were in had a kitchenette, dining table, sofa, single bed in one room and then bedroom and bathroom, with free wifi. Electric blankets on the bed and two heaters to keep the place warm. The kitchenette has all you need, including wine glasses and a...

We stayed here last night and couldn't fault a thing. Really friendly owners, immaculately clean rooms and lovely modern linen and comfy bed. The studio room we were in had 2 heaters so we were toasty warm. Also had jug, toaster, microwave and fridge along with plates etc. We were cycling the alps to ocean and we were offered lock...

Very comfortable stay. Clean rooms and warm too. Very friendly owners with nice kitchen facilities and lounge room. Close to 'Boots and Jandals' pub which is a great place for food if you can't be bothered to cook!

The room was pleasant with a good bed, but it was quite small with no proper table, just a narrow desk and a chair. The setting was nice, on a quiet street in a small town with a couple of shops, bars and restaurants. Facilities were as described.

Super friendly and helpful manager, lovely set up and excellent rooms. We only stayed one night and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. If you're a light sleeper perhaps request a room away from the road as the trucks started early.

Visited in 12 of January. We decided to sleep in Omarama on the road between The Hermitage to Dunedin because at Hermitage and in localities close to it we would not find accommodation. Ahuriri Motels Omarama was a wonderful choice for both the beautiful view from the room or from the small terrace in front of it and the very...

This was a little bit of an unknown choice. But we were pleased with what greeted us. A perfect little villa in a small quiet village with a great pub to dine at. The owners were pleasant and down to earth.

The hotel was a good stop between Lake tekapo and Te Anau for us. Our room was very clean but small. Check in was easy. We were able to do laundry at 4.00 wash and 4.00 dry. There were restaurants to eat at near by.

My daughter and her partner chose this small town for their wedding and for a small town it packs a powerful punch. In one word STUNNING.Initially our booking at the motel was not there and thanks to Teresa and her staff the problem was solved in our favour big time by the most efficient and friendly manner that my wife...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Omarama, a Mountain Community in the middle of everywhere! Our 14 motel unit complex is situated in the heart of this mountainous region surrounded by a spacious garden like setting. This peaceful and quiet setting has a country atmosphere and stunning views of the mountain ranges, is just a short distance to beautiful lakes for boating or fishing. Tramping, walking or mountain bike tracks are also in our back yard with the Alps to Ocean cycle trail right here! We are a gliding mecca, you will see them soaring the skies, be tempted and take a flight yourself! Our 'dark' night skies are known for pristine starlit viewing, an idyllic way to view them is from a private Hot Tub and overlooking a small lake. Base yourself here in Omarama and be central to Mt Cook, Tekapo, Oamaru, Queenstown and Wanaka. See you soon ... more   less
