This is a lodge this community kitchen and lounge. Astounding views, and a series of double and twin rooms. Bathroom facilities are tidy and segregated. This is a great overnight place if you are not looking for the luxury of a hotel or motel and are happy to share with a community.

The staff person was so awesome and friendly. Went the extra mile to make sure our comfort was met. Recommended good eating restaurants in Oamaru which were spot on. If you want a nice quiet stay this is the place.

Old bones lodge is a lodge

I was looking for a motel with 2 bedroom and old bones came up, when I checked in I found it had 8 rooms sharing common areas including bathroom, kitchen and lounge . It’s a very nice lodge which we had it to ourselves. It has a central fireplace which was very pleasant and Gloria the owner is nice
