We stayed here for two nights. The location was brillant, and we were able to walk to the town, restaurants, hospital and university. They rooms were quite simply the cleanest I have been in for a motel. Everything was spotless and shining. We had absolutely no issues with noise and the bed was comfortable. It was a fantastic place to... More

It is our first visit to Dunedin and we have no clue what to expect. Our stay in Motel on Yoke makes Dunedin a very memorable one. The room is very beautifully decorated. Modern, new and clean. The tilings in the toilet are very English and very tastefully done. The toilet floor is heated and it is great when you... More

The motel is at a great location near the centre of Dunedin. It was walking distance to the otago museum, the octagon, cadbury factory, dunedin railway station and cafes, restaurants and the supermarket. The motel itself is quite quaint, the room was not large but adequate for 2 people, but clean and serviced daily. I had some issues with the... More
