If you are heading to Dunedin and want somewhere to say where you can walk to the main shopping centre and carry your parcels back again, this is it. There are so many restaurants within walking distance, there is no need to drive to one. You wouldn't get a park closer anyway in the centre of Dunedin. Yes, as other... More

A well located motel with easy access to Dunedin City Centre. Quiet. The room was comfortable albeit with only a microwave for cooking. A pleasant sit out area although a little public due to the sloping streets of the area.

Comfortable motel located just behind town hall and lively 'Octagon' area. Very clean. Efficient, friendly reception staff helped us to settle in very quickly. Complementary WiFi but no A/C otherwise 5*.

We stayed here for several nights. The complex looked high quality and the rooms were nicely furnished and clean, but the ventilation was appalling. The bathroom had no fan and just one tiny window almost at ceiling height - totally inadequate after more than one shower. Bedroom was excessively hot (and this was in cool Dunedin weather) and, again, only... More

Couldn't find much quality accommodation in Dunedin however found this motel where the front man was lovely and the unit was nice and tidy also accommodated by a spa bath which was a lovely touch. Simple walk into the octagon and most of the shops were a small walk of about 2 blocks. Would recommend.

Wow, fantastic motel! Lovely room, very well equipped kitchenette, comfy bed, exceptionally clean, friendly and helpful owners, large DVD collection for free use by guests. We stayed in the accessible suite, which was fantastic - little private courtyard with table and chairs where we could sit and eat our breakfast, and comfortable living and sleeping spaces. Great location too, very... More

It was clean and the location is all right, 2 blocks away from center of town, but I was not so happy with the my stay there. TV was bad, service was bad and most of all people at the reception (which I think were the owners) were not at all friendly.
