Good location, easy walking distance to the University, Botanic gardens, Otago museum... This motel was very comfortable, I got upgraded from a studio to a one bedroom which was nice. I stayed her for 3 nights, the room was clean and got serviced daily. I had no issues with noise and got a good nights sleep. Free wifi. The staff... More

Reached here after a long drive and it was not difficult to locate the hotel. While in any town or city in NZ you will need google maps on your smartphone to navigate and reach your place of stay. When on the highways you don't need any such help as the roads are sign posted perfectly The Cable court place... More

Thank you for your review of Cable Court Motel. We are situated in central Dunedin (as are 90% of motels.) Dunedin is a University town with a student culture and large student presence. We work very closely with the university - as do other properties - to maintain peace in the central area, as you can imagine a 25,000 student... More

We stayed only one night whilst passing through and found our stay very comfortable. Close to shops and restaurants, big comfy bed, excellent shower, quiet, free wifi, good choice of TV channels, friendly check in and check out and travel brochures and maps available from reception. Free parking also available. Very convenient place to stay.

After reading some other reviews I was a bit concerned about the comments regarding noise. I didn't experience the noise some others reported but I did stay during a semester break at the university. The rooms were pretty large with a bedroom separated from the living/kitchen room. While modestly furnished, the rooms were comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed in Dunedin for 2 nights recently at the Cablecourt. The staff were friendly, and the room was a decent size. Wifi signal was a bit iffy, but reasonable amount of data provided for free. Kitchen facilities are really very basic kitchenette, you wouldn't want to try and prepare a meal. The rooms, in fact, the entire motel, are... More

We have stayed at the cable court several times and always find the staff helpful and accommodating, although it's in a student area we haven't had too many problems with noise although it will depend when you visit on the student social calender we will be heading back next time we are in Dunedin.

This was our second stay at these motels and equally as good as the first. We were on a business visit and wanted a place which is handy to eating places (though just about everywhere in Dunedin is), warm and clean and friendly. This place fulfils our requirements easily. Met by friendly staff who had turned the heaters in the... More
