I just spent two weeks in room 5 at Omahu Lodge and was very happy!
I simply don’t understand a couple of the negative reviews below because my experience was completely different and, believe me, as frequent business traveller I’m super picky!
My room was spotlessly clean and the daily housekeeping was fantastic. The bed and bed linen were sublime and I slept really well. The A/C works really well and I loved the little but perfectly equipped kitchenette.
I loved the table and chairs on the terrace for an evening drink and chill and the dinner table and desk in the room were ideal for eating or working. It was also good to be able to flop into the comfy armchair and watch a bit of TV.
There are tons of TV channels (more than many large hotels) and the WiFi is PERFECT for a business traveler who’s WiFi dependant.
In terms of facilities nearby, there’s a Four Square mini market 7 minutes pleasant, flat walk behind the motel. It’s open until 19:00. Turning left out of the front of the motel and walking down Omahu Road will take you to a couple of fast food outlets in 2 minutes. Walk a further 3-4 minutes and you’ll find a coffee shop / cafe, a huge wine and liquor store and the fantastic Jark’s Restaurant and bar - upscale but mega friendly.
Shay and Bev are brilliant and very friendly and helpful. Thank you so much for doing my laundry Shay!
I highly recommend this motel and look forward to my second stay in May.
