We stayed for two nights and found the whole experience great. A warm welcome on arrival by knowledgeable and friendly staff. Room was clean and well presented although bathroom was a little dated (shower over bath, plastic curtain etc.). The gardens are magnificent and a credit to the groundsman. Rooms were serviced well and nothing was too much trouble for... More

We really enjoyed our time in Dunedin and the Mecure Dunedin Leisure Lodge was a great place to stay. We had a ground floor room that backed on to the beautiful gardens and the kids had a great place to run around. Location was good, not too far from the city centre. Staff were very friendly. The only thing was... More

The staff here made my sisters wedding day so special. They were quick to help in anyway and did everything they could to make sure the reception ran smoothly. The food was amazing! Thank you Dunedin Leisure Lodge!

I am a regular user of Accor hotels through business and snapped a great deal staying here for four nights over Christmas. Slight confusion on check in when the registration card said two double beds, but on clarify it seemed we had a two queen garden room which was excellent. As a base, this was perfect. Clean, comfortable and well... More

Reception was very helpful and pleasant. Beds are comfortable with the standard amenities. Quite a walk into city although doable, there is also a bus service not far from the hotel. They do provide free wifi for an hour, after that you have to pay.

The rooms could do with upgrading...this is an average hotel across from botanical gardens. The hotel has lovely gardens too. There is a supermarket nearby for convenience. Lots of places to eat nearby too. Breakfast was average. All in all...it's a place to rest your head. There is much to look at in Dunedin....don't waste time in a motel room.
