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.
