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

The motel is very clean and comfortable. The room services were very good. The reception staff is nice and helpful. The location is good and closed to the university and the city centre. But the motel is near to students' flats, so it was noisy on Saturday.

Thank you for taking the time to review Cable Court. We appreciate your comments and feedback. We do have student accomodation nearby as the majority of central dunedin is populated by student houses. We have a great noise control service we can call on if need be, but it is rarely necessary. we hope to see you again in the... More

Clean and comfortable room with everything you need for a short stop over. Perfect if you just need a bed for the night with the convieniece of your oven cooking facilities. A big plus is that it has a laundry which is free to use for all guests, the tumble dryer was $2 for 90 minutes. Downside is that it... More

Family of four, including a 10 year old and a 13 year old, and stayed in an upstairsexecutive family room for three nights when we arrived in Dunedin. This is not a flash place to stay, but it is really good value for the price and provides everything you need as a base for exploring Dunedin. It's clean and tidy... More

We enjoyed our overnight stay here. Our room was very cosy on the chilly night we were there. Our bathroom was lovely along with our kitchenette that overlooked an alley at the back. Staff were very lovely.

Stayed for one night,received a very warm welcome and let us order breakfast although we were a bit late. Had ground floor unit at the back spotless, nice bathroom and adequate tea/coffee making facilities. Fairly priced and would stay here again,bit of a walk into town, but didn't find that a problem.

We stayed here for one night, on our way to other locations. However we really liked the unit and booked a further 2 nights for our return journey, with the intention of using it as a base to explore Dunedin. The unit had very adequate cooking facilities, typical of many New Zealand units with a two-plate inbuilt hot plates and... More

Stayed at the Cable Court in October 2014 with friends. This motel is around 30+years old. It is clean for it's age, however is in need of upgrading. They only have the five (5) free to air TV stations, which does not give you much viewing of a night. This motel is a long way from the city center and... More
