I wasn't holding out much hope when this was booked. We had struggled to find other accommodation in Dunedin. But I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The wonder was friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and warn (once we switched the heating on) Beds were very comfortable and I slept very well shower and kitchen clean and... More

We had the two bedroom unit upstairs. Bedrooms were spacious . There was enough room in the lounge dining area to invite another family for dinner. Bathroom with separate toilet was clean and fresh towels were delivered every day.There was a full kitchen and microwave, which is useful for those who wish to cook. As were we in Dunedin for...

There were 7 of us. The suite was spacious with well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds. There was only one washroom in the suite and very inconvenient for us. They provide free wifi access as well for all of us.

We were three male friends who were in town for the Rugby. Great location, clean, comfortable and spacious enough despite one of us using the sofa as a fold out bed. Free Wifi was great and the hosts were very friendly. 150 meters away is a 24 hour dairy (corner shop) which was handy.

We had room number 4. It was a large place. You entered into the sitting area where there was a sofa, end table, dinner table seating 4 and a large flat screen tv. The kitchen area was large and bright and clean and was just off the main room. There was a separate bedroom with a queen and twin bed... More

Beds were very comfortable and chilly evenings were kept at bay with the speedy heating system.The motel is close to the CBD. The road is flat and... More

Its in a great location, out of the immediate city, so avoiding the noisy students at night, however only 10-15 minutes walk along the main st into town, so easy to navigate without a car. The rooms are large & comfortable. The staff are friendly & always have time to answer questions. Perfect place to call 'home' for the night... More

Fabulous large, clean, well equipped room- great location- cant say enough great things about Owens. Walking distance to great food and octagon. Recommendation came from locals, and boy were they right. Perfect place to stay to enjoy Dunedin.

This is the third time I've stayed at Owens Motel and again it was a fantastic experience. This time around it was for 8 of us due to a family member being moved to Dunedin Hospital. The central location with everything in near proximity is great as were our units as usual - spacious, clean and modern with good heating.... More
