We found this accommodation very good, and not smelly like others think. We liked having the bedroom on a mezzanine floor as this made it feel not like a motel room. We stayed for 2 day's and nights enjoyed ourselves looking around Dunedin at it's sites it has to offer. Many thanks Chris

Enjoyed a weekend in Dunedin at the Aberdeen motel. Very friendly proprietors who looked after us very well. A cosy motel with everything we needed. Handy to restaurants, supermarket and Botanic gardens, to main street and just off the main road north out of Dunedin. Great location. Have stayed here a number of times and have always had great service.

I love the self-contained unit. It has everything I needed, from the pots and pans to the clean sparking plates.The dinning table is like a bar counter that links to the kitchen. I like how they partition the kitchen from the rest of the area. I'm amazed by the two-storey unit. It makes the whole place feels cosy. I like... More

Terrible customer service from the start. Our booking was lost and we were given a ramshackle room, then advised not to use the upstairs area. The heater was broken, which is great in NZ winter. Blood stains on sheets. We checked out early. I recommend not checking in to start with.

We consider this a very unfair review of our property. A courteous welcome was given together with a map and local shopping, restaurants and tourist attractions pointed out. A booking was being held in our computer system, but upon request, this guest could not produce a voucher, which not a big issue to us. They were upgraded from the studio... More

Managers were very thoughtful from the checking-in process and right through our stay. Traveling with elderly parents we were upgraded so at least one bedroom was on the same level as the bathroom. Basic decor but how much time do you spend in the actual motel? It had all we needed plus more.The view from the 2nd floor was amazing.... More

We had plenty of space it was more like a small apartment.It was clean but tired and could do with the bathroom and kitchen area updating. The double bed was upstairs in the mezzanine area which was fine unless you needed to visit the bathroom in the middle of the night! The property is very attractive from the outside but... More
