I didn't stay at the hotel myself however booked for guests of mine who needed to be near the hospital. Wayne and his team were so flexible and accommodating especially when I didn't know how long my guests needed to stay. My guests said it was perfect for their needs and the location made their lives very easy. Thank you... More

This Place is a hidden gem in the middle of the CBD. Friendly, clean and extremely quiet. Shops and main Dunedin attractions, restaurants, cinemas, everything within walking distance. No hot plate in our room, but we did not mind, m/w, jug ant toaster and we had a great meal in our room. Besides a number of very good restaurants almost... More

I stayed at the Motel Moray for one night. It was a positive experience. Here are my notables: Location: Fantastic location just a block or two away from the Octagon. You have easy access to all the restaurants and shops that Dunedin has to offer. Room: Our room was large and clean. It contained a comfortable bed, kitchenette and flat... More

A well priced motel in a very good location at the top of The Octagon in a Dunedin. Rooms are well appointed with microwave, fridge and kitchen utensils. Cheap continent breakfast for $5.50. Very friendly, helpful staff. Have stayed here twice and would again. Free parking available.

We booked this online for a one night stay and were very surprised at the wonderful 1 bedroom unit that was supplied. Extremely comfortable and quiet in a central location. I would recommend the $5.50 breakfast, as you would be hard put to beat that price at any of the many local eateries in the nearby area.

Stayed 1 night. Narrow entrance and parking. Spacious room and comfy bed. Weird shower arrangement and poor hot water supply. Working kitchenette with adequate amenities. Good location tho. Walking distance from shops. A little noisy as can hear rowdy crowd from nearby cafe. Acceptable for 1 night stay.

Our first time at this motel and we enjoyed it so have it on the list of places to use in future (having discarded the 3 we stayed in before in Dunedin). It is well placed and kept with a very comfortable bed. Being a former hostel the rooms are perhaps oddly shaped and ours was long and somewhat narrow... More

My husband and I stayed here while we were attending a friend's wedding. The location is fantastic, just behind the octagon. The rooms were simple but clean. My only complaint would be the shower head didn't have a whole lot of pressure. There is paid breakfast available but we didn't try it as there were many great cafes close by.... More

We loved Dunedin, and this place formed part of our great impression. It is right in the centre of town. We had a one-bedroom, and the kids loved their loft-style room with own television (not that they used it - too much else to do!). Rooms spacious, clean and modern. Private balcony. Free parking. Very friendly and efficient staff -... More
