Sandi the owner is a great host. Warm welcome and chocolate cake ! Cosy, comfortable homey Unit. Loads of room for the 3 of us and baby. Great, well equipped kitchen. Walked into town and surrounds quite easily. Drive might be a challenge for some as steep, but you would work that out for yourself. Quiet. An electric plug, near... More

The Manor Motel is the cleanest accommodation I have ever stayed in. Sandi the owner is lovely, very helpful and even had a chocolate cake waiting for us when we arrived! We were in Room 1 it was very quiet and the motels location is only 10 min walk into the octagon. Will be recommending to friends and family.

I've had my fair share of motel stays in New Zealand, but I must say that Manor Motel wasn't like any other motel I've stayed at! I had booked Room 4 which was a studio with one queen bed; the door was located right next to the motel's reception door. My first impression of the place was like it felt... More

We have only just got back from our wonderful trip to Dunedin. Our trip was really made by our experience at the Manor Motel. Extremely clean, well presented, and very handy to town. 15 minute walk to the Octogon. Sandy our host really went out of her way to make sure we had everything we desired. We would strongly recommend... More

We (family of 4) stayed for 2 nights. Sandy is so lovely, made sure we knew our way around etc, welcomed us with chocolate cake (which was to die for). We found the motel so handy to the octagon, clean and tidy, a well equipped kitchen, comfy beds (which is unusual for a motel). Couldnt fault it. And really reasonable... More

We have stayed here as a family and couple several times. Sandy is a wonderful host. The motel is up a steep driveway with fairly tight parking at the top. We often stay in of the two bedroom units up some steps. They are probably from around the 1970s but spacious and very clean and tidy with a good sized... More

My third stay at Manor Motel, why stay anywhere else in Dunedin. Easy walk into town, no parking problems, most co-operative hosts, Sandy and Simon. Whilst in Dunedin take a packed lunch and spend a day on the Otago peninsula.

Wonderful host! We were greeted with a BIG smile & chocolate cake! The apartment was lovely and spacious and had everything we needed. Shower was a little small (for people over 6'0) and could use a light too... But otherwise all good. Only a few mins away from the center of town. Loved it thanks!

Our party of 3 people stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for 2 nights. The apartment was quite spacious, and they gave the impression that they perhaps used to be units, and have been converted into short term motel style accommodation. The lounge room was a good size, with a separate, if slightly cramped kitchen. The kitchen was well stocked... More
