After a 9 hour ride in bad weather, this motel was a well-deserved rest stop. Warm and friendly welcome too, which lifted spirits after being soaked through on the ride. I got the last room, so ended up with a suite of two king rooms (two singles were also in one of the rooms), living area and large bathroom. Clean,... More

Only stayed one night here, quick check in, given milk, map and offered DVD about the area. Room clean and easy to find when arriving by car and walking distance into centre of town was fine. Must visit the railway station!

Might sound over the top, but we love this motel! We travel to New Zealand from Canada regularly to visit family and friends, and we always make a stop at the Allan Court. It is a clean, quiet refuge, very close to shops, a 15 minute walk through the university and over to the stadium, and about the same to... More

Reception fella was pretty friendly on check in, but later asking for a ice tray he was a little cold - they expect you to freeze your own ice - pretty hard for a one night stay, my room was nice and big, but could hear street noise. Shower had good water pressure - tv was good, everything nice and... More

Quite central but outdated bed covers, those thin scatchy sheets and worn out towels that we all love. Cheapest loo paper in the OECD. Lazy boy rocker from the 70's that someone probably died in. Surprisingly quiet. Charged $2 for tiny sachet of laundry powder. Depressingly tight. Charged $302 for two nights. Why not be generous in life? yolo

If it wasn't for the uni students doing the Haka at 3am most days in the adjoining carpark, this place wouldn't be too bad. The host/manager, Jeff went out of his way to ensure any problems are resolved. He was very friendly and agreed it was an unfortunate time of the year to be at that end of town due... More

Hi 94retiedandhappy, thank you for taking the time to review our motel. We always appreciate feedback from our guests. Yes, unfortunately orientation week in Dunedin North can cause issues with noise with the students celebrating the start of the university year. It is unavoidable and beyond our control. We are pleased you have drawn to our attention that you found... More

The title says it all really. Spacious room with separate bedroom straight on to car park. Within walking distance of city centre and clearly popular with the business community judging by the number of regulars who seemed to be there. Despite main road position it's also very quiet. Very helpful owners too. Recommended and would return

It's been a couple of years since we were in Dunedin, but we were more than happy to return to the Allan Court. It's close to everything, well appointed with very friendly owners. This visit was for a week. The internet access puts my own broadband back in Sydney to shame and is seemingly unlimited and free. If you're in... More

This was a lovely place to stay. We were restricted to where we could go as we had my special needs sister with us so had to have somewhere wheelchair friendly and this fit the bill to a T. The rooms were spacious, kitchen well stocked with utensils and the bathroom was amazing. It was close to everything including supermarkets,... More

After booking Allan Court because of its higher rating reviews on Trip Advisor, we were not let down. This is an exceptionally clean Motel with great rooms for families. We stayed a week and found it centrally located, with the Octagon in walking distance. This is the only Motel we stayed at on our trip around the South Island with... More
