Lindsey and his wife were excellent hosts. Clean, comfortable and like home. I highly recommend the Motel on York for a stay in Dunedin. Convenient walking to the Octogon area and good rates. Beautiful view of the city.

I stayed at Motel on York for 2 nights, and was very impressed with everything about the facility. The unit was very clean, tidy and spacious. The location was very close to town and out of the student area, and it was extremely quiet.

Whenever I am in Dunedin I always stay at Motel on York, as it is as good as you will get in Dunedin. Perfectly situated within a 3 min walk to the main shopping area and restaurants. Not inexpensive but not expensive either. In fact priced about right for what it offers. Try it, you won't regret it.
