5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here for one night but would have happily stayed longer. We were greeted with a warm welcome and the owner kindly carried our bags up the stairs which was a first in our whole 3 weeks of staying in motels. The rooms were very flash, modern and clean and the location of the motel is excellent - walking... More

This lovely hotel situated close to the centre of the city. We loved the separate bedroom and the comfortable lounge area.... Wifi was strong and reliable. The only downfall was it was noisy on the top floor of the hotel....bear in mind though that this is a university town and there are lots of students :)

We recently stayed here as part of our 6 week tour of the South Island. The accommodation is outstanding. The location is very good, just a short walk down the hill to the city centre. The owner was very helpful, he found out for me that the Six Nations Rugby was on Sky Sports which was available on the TV.... More

The welcome from Malcolm and Liz, as well as all of the hints and tips they gave us about where to eat and what to see, not only in Dunedin but in several other locations we were traveling to, was a very happy surprise. Check-in was a breeze; Malcolm carried our bags to the room and directed my husband in... More

The Dunedin Palms is a great motel in a great location. It’s within walking distance of the Octagon, but it’s not so close that you get unnecessary noise. Malcolm and Liz were very friendly and helpful, giving us lots of good ideas on things to do. There was a small hiccup on the cleaning one day, but they solved it... More

We can only confirm what all reviews say about Dunedin Palms Motel. The owners are the friendliest and most helpful people we met during our trip across New Zealand. They really go the extra mile to make sure that their guests are happy and know what Dunedin and the surroundings have to offer. We were really impressed by how they... More

We had a suite on the top floor with a balcony. The main living space was very generous but the bedroom was slightly small. Lovely big bathroom. The whole suite had contemporary decor. The kitchen area was very well provided with quality equipment. Sitting out on the balcony for breakfast was a real treat. Malcolm and Liz were very helpful... More

We arrived without a reservation on a sat night, luckily there was one unit left! This motel is quite new, has tasteful decor, GREAT shower and comfy beds! The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was large and tasty. The location is great for central Dunedin, downhill walking distance to the Speights Brewery, Cadbury factory and the Casino... More

We spent two night (and wish it had been longer) at the Dunedin Palms Motel. From the moment we arrived we felt as if we were visiting friends or family. Malcolm and Liz welcomed us to the property, gave Jennifer the package containing the coat she'd left at Oceanview Chalets and which Robert had mailed to the Dunedin Palms, and... More

We stayed 4 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment. It was small but clean, modern and well equipped. We ate in 3 nights and had no difficulty in doing the catering. If there is a criticism it is that the bedrooms did not really have any drawers and there was very limited hanging space but as we were used to... More
