We stayed here for 1 night whilst travelling around New Zealand and loved this motel. Was pleasantly surprised to have been given an upgrade when we arrived to a much bigger unit. It was massive and lovely too. Owner couldn't do enough and getting some cake when you arrived was a nice touch. Real shame we were only there one... More

This is my worst stay of my life. I will never stay here again. The so call WIFI free in all rooms unless you stand outside of your room & you might be able get intermittent signal. The heater temperature in room not controlled by you but the owner. They will decide what temperature is good for you not yourself.... More

Nice little tidy motel in a quiet area but not far from the city center. 8-10 mins walk. Excellent service. On-site parking. Great host. Greets you with a smile, very helpful and accommodating. Pre-heated our room..which was awesome plus a chocolate cake to boot...what more could a traveller ask? A++++

Been here before, but this was the first time we had a studio unit. The price was right and for a studio unit it was nice and roomy , except for the bathroom . Shower was ok, but hardly any room to move around in the wash area and toilet . That aside the rest was good and attendance to... More

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
