A warm and friendly greeting and a well presented room, lots of space and a balcony. Secure free internet and a chance to re-energise. Only 20 minutes walk into the city centre past student accommodation that was interesting! Enjoyed being walking distance to the sights of Dunedin: The Otago Museum, Olverston House and the Steepest Street. We do like a 'good' walk so some might prefer to drive.

After a nightmare motel that we had booked for 2 nights but only stayed one, we moved to 858 and it was so good we decided to stay another night. It was like staying at home. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The units are beautifully presented and have all the equipment. The laundry was free which we appreciated after being on the road for a week as was the wi-fi.We had a 2 bedroom 2 storey,stand-alone unit which was extremely spacious,.I would highly recommend this as the place to stay inDunedin

Room Tip: Our unit was next to main road and as it was orientation week for the university, it was a little n...

This is the loveliest place to stay as you feel immediately at home. It is a busy popular motel on a busy street. The owners greet you as though they have known you always and we were only staying overnight, unfortunately. Everything worked perfectly and comfort was absolute. I'd love to know where they bought their sofas as they were not only beautiful but extremely comfortable, especially to curl up in with a good book. The flower gardens outside each room were delightful. I can't wait to go back to Dundin and stay @ 858 George Street which is abit of a walk into town and an easy drive out of town.

Room Tip: Probably away from the roadfront

We highly recommend this motel, both for the quality of the accommodation and the helpfulness of the staff. We arrived on the evening of February 14th without having given any thought to how difficult it might be to find somewhere enjoyable to eat on Valentine’s Day. The manager very kindly phoned about a dozen restaurants before finding one that could fit us in for an early evening meal. It was also here that we decided to use the laundry facilities and the member of staff on duty come to show us how to work the machines, as she didn’t want us to damage any of our clothes. The accommodation was spacious, as it consisted of two rooms plus an en-suite bathroom. The rooms were very clean and well-equipped.

858 George Street was by far the best place we stayed through our 10 day trip around the South Island....which says a lot as we stayed at many good motels and even a 5 star luxury hotel. 858 George really is a great, comfortable and neat motel and seems to be fairly new, but done in a historic townhouse style.

The rooms was very comfortable, was well appointed and had a very comfortable bed (& the best sleep for the whole trip). The staff were very helpful, accommodating and friendly. Free parking and Wifi were great and all for a very reasonable price.

The location is good, not right in the centre of the city, but maybe 1.5km away which means either about 15-20 min easy walk, a short drive or the bus goes right along George Street at the front of the motel.

By way of feedback to the owners, I wasn't a big fan of the soap provided (seemed quite grislly and not at smooth as other soap bars), however it says a lot when this was the only thing I would change.

Overall, fantastic place to stay and highly recommended.

A very pleasant, old but new villa style experience. All facilities in very good condition, very clean, everything feels brand new. My unit didn't really have a kitchen, but in my case, I didn't need one or ask for one. All I needed was a cup of tea, which was provided – although filling up the jug from the bathroom basin was a bit weird. Perhaps a flask of water sitting out on the sideboard would be a good idea. Highly recommended. Close, but not too close to the campus. Some eating places nearby, but mostly convenience and takeaway. The Thai restaurant nearby within walking distance is average, and not really Thai. And watch out for drownings of Soy sauce. So if you want access to nice eating, you'll need a car. But as a short, nice, stay-over, within walking distance to the Campus, is excellent and recommended.

The motel looks quite new and our unit felt like a hotel room (which was good) but it lacked cooking facilities. Whilst there was a microwave and cutlery etc the food preparation had to be done by television and there was no kitchen sink (as in all other places we have stayed) so we had to wash up etc in the bathroom basin.
Otherwise, good facilities but we were kept awake by an adjacent university hall of residence and it's a good 30 minute walk from the town centre. Free off street parking right next to your unit is a bonus in a city.
