Property Information:

The Empire is an old favourite amongst backpackers. We are located in the CENTRE of town, near the information centre (i-SITE) in the Historic (Victorian) Precinct. We are well-known for being clean, warm and friendly.

There are 2 lounges, one with a large screen TV and a log fire. We have heaters in the bedrooms and endless hot water. Other facilities include: 3 computers kiosks, WiFi (access via a hotspot), pool table, piano, off-street parking, and... a video library!

We are part of the Historic Precinct and a 15 minute walk to the Blue Penguin Colony. Make sure to visit Steampunk Headquarters and Annie's Victorian Tea Rooms - there is more to see in Oamaru than the guidebooks tell you.

We are surrounded by restaurants, cafes, bars, shops and close to a supermarket.

    I really enjoyed my stay there, even it was only one night. The host was ver nice and helpful, he told me exactly where I have to go to see the penguins, etc. The room was very nice and clean, bathroom is also clean. Good location, right in the centre. Internet you need to pay, but not that expensive and there is some free wi-fi nearby.
