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

You need to be aware that this is a vibrant student area so can get a bit lively. On arrival the staff were very friendly and provided helpful information about both the motel and Dunedin per se. Nothing was too much trouble for them and wifi was provided free of charge. Moreover to their great credit Cable Court did not... More

The staff from the receptionist to the housekeepers and managers went out of their way to assist in anything that was asked of them. True southern hospitality. The room was immaculate everyday! It was warm despite being the middle of winter and the weather had been less than favourable. Icy roads after the snow from the week before. The heating... More

This motel was within a good walk into Dunedins centre. The room had all that was needed in it. We felt it was separate to rest of building but nice and private. Thankfully the room had a good heater and electric blanket was a necessity. It was nice and clean and would recommend it to any other traveller.

We were in a room upstairs which meant hubby had to cart heavy suitcases up the stairs but the kids thought it was a marvellous novelty. The motel is situated right next door to a block of student flats (almost hard not to be in Dunedin) but thankfully we didn’t find too much noise coming from there. The bedding was... More

The unit we had was an apartment style with a separate bedroom that had 2 beds and a bathroom , Kitchen/living room. The kitchen had a microwave , no pots etc but crockery etc for 3 people. The rooms were spacious and for staying for 5 or so nights it meant you didn't have to live in the bedroom. The... More

This motel is conveniently placed for easy access to Dunedins centre. The rooms are large and well maintained. With a garage next door it was handy if you fancied a late night snack, Laundry facilities are available at low cost
