We were warmly welcomed in the early evening and made our way to our room which was wonderful. We were offered free wifi (via a voucher for up to 5 devices) which we accepted. Beyond the carpark below, we could see the harbour area and the lights from the penguin place and hillside above. The room itself was spotless, reasonably...

The hotel is very good with spacious and very clean rooms. It has a very nice bar and restaurant. It is located in the heart of the city. The service is excellent and the people are very kind. Great spot to visit on your way to see the penguins and the steampunk.

After spending one night (only one, luckily) at this hotel, here's what I think: this was an old building, road facing, which was expanded with a second building in more recent years, with a "seamless" connection so that from the inside it looks like you are still in the same building. The final result is a half-maze which doesn't really...

This hotel is centrally located on the main street of town. If you take the train from Dunedin to Oamaru, get off at the stop before the station. The train stops to let passengers off at the crossing on the main street of town. As you get off there is the information center to one side of the track. Cross...

I love the experience of travelling back in time and this is one of those places you feel just that, arriving late afternoon we were able to book Dinner (great menu) and take our selves down to the Harbour at dusk to see one of natures best 100's of little blue penguins come home after all day at sea feeding...

We've enjoyed a tasteful lunch at reasonable prices, sumptuous pizzas and rich cakes. Good coffee. The service has been OK, a bit slow at the beginning. The atmosphere of the place is great and suites the tremendous Victorian buildings of charming Oamaru. We'll return on our next visit.

The last time we went here we walked out after 20 mins of waiting to be given a menu. We had picked one up from the bar but were told to put it back and we would be brought one. 2nd visit went better. Menu arrived orders taken in good time but meal took a long time to come. They...

We just dined in without staying at the Brydone but were totally delighted with the high quality of food that we ordered. As a group we requested a wide variety and all the food came at the same time, hot and supremely delicious.

Stayed in house as we had a work function arranged in the hotel. All the staff were amazing, super helpful and friendly. Room had recently been updated so it was modern and fresh. Some other parts of the establishment were not so fabulous. Great central location! Overall a good place to stay
