Fodor's Expert Review Bay Motel

9 Dundee St., Oban, Southland, 9846, New Zealand

Clean, spacious, and comfortable apartment-like units and full apartments have decks with views that take in Halfmoon Bay, and from these "busybody" perches you can observe the comings and goings of the wharf and pub, as well as the antics of the kakas (bush parrots). The studio spa with a two-person jetted tub is nice after a day of tramping. All rooms have central heating and Wi-Fi; some are wheelchair-accessible. Other facilities include laundry, barbecues, and freezer storage if you've been out fishing and need to store your catch. Continental breakfast is provided at extra cost, but there's a free shuttle service to the national park.
