I have stayed here on two seperate occasions, and have been very impressed both times. Rooms are spacious, clean and well appointed. Beds very comfortable. Very close to the central city and no problems with noise. Reception staff also friendly and accommodating. Recommended.

Excellent standard of accommodation. Room was large and the kitchen area was spacious and very clean. Easy parking adjacent to the motel. The only problem was that there were no signs indicating where our room was. The location of the motel was excellent with a short walk to the centre of town and facilities.

I stay at Motel on York most times I visit Dunedin. Here's why: 1. Located in the middle of town means you can walk to most inner city of university appointments. 2. Convenient parking. Safe, secure and no additional fees. 3. The rooms are clean and toastie warm. The decor is nice and there are a variety of spacious room... More

We had a very clean and spacious one bedroom ground floor unit. Large, tiled bathroom and small private courtyard. Easy walk to the Octagon and other central city attractions. Recommended. Would stay again

Walking distance into town, railway station, etc. Nice private courtyard area adjoining the unit. Well appointed room, modern and clean - nothing more than expected, but not less either. Reception service good. Parking area was full - could you always get a park if the complex was full? We were lucky. Overall it's the location that sets this motel apart... More

Stayed overnight for business. The room was quiet and well laid out. Good tea and coffee selection with real milk provided at time of booking in. Only grumble was the bed ... a bit firm for my liking so I didn't get a good sleep due to this. The owner/front desk very helpful in regards to information around local eateries.... More

Motel was very clean in great condition with modern facilities . The underfloor heating in the bathroom was very much appreciated in the morning given how cold it gets in Dunedin. The motel is situated approx 200 metres from the cbd which is great as parking in town is terrible. The hosts were great and treated us like long lost... More
