On 3 September we were sworn in as new New Zealand citizens, a process that took just over eight years from the date of our arrival in the country to complete. To celebrate, we are offering our guests a special gift–20% off our standard room rate for the next three months! And just like there is no looking back for us, these rates are non-cancellable, and must be booked and paid by 30 September. This means you can stay with us for the world-famous Oamaru Victorian Heritage Celebrations (14-18 November) at these celebratory rates. (If you choose to dine with us, the cost will be our usual $135 per person. If you prefer to have the flexibility of cancelling, then our regular rates apply.) This must be booked on our booking page, which you can access by following this link: Celebrate our Kiwi Citizenship with Us!
