This is a budget motel with very old appearance outside and in. Whilst spacious the 1 bedroom unit lacks the finer details for a holiday stay. The free wifi only works when you sit at the table near the window, the bathroom is freezing with no power point, no exhaust fan and a very old shower head. You need an... More

We (family of 5 with kids 13,10 and 7) stayed here for a couple of nights during our "South Island Roadie" At first look it's old and not very appealing, however the hospitality is fantastic. We had a chocolate cake on arrival and our hostess insisted on doing our washing for us (at a charge as it turns out, but... More

We were fortunate that the bookings changed and we ended up in a much larger, upgraded unit, which was a nice way to start our NZ holiday. The Manager, Jenni, was really helpful on arrival with suggestions of where to eat, what to see, etc. The hotel is next door to the Manor Backpackers. Both buildings are fairly old but,... More

The owner of this motel could not be more friendly and helpful. From the home made chocolate cake on arrival, to the follow up call the next day (we had forgotten something), Sandy was an exceptional host. Our travelling companions loved the ornate ceiling in their room and both rooms were warm and comfortable. This motel is in a great... More

Easy 10 min walk into town, clean and comfortable accommodation. We had our own little kitchen with our room and the host is very friendly and helpful with local knowledge and laundering. We spent 3 nights here to explore Dunedin and would stay here again.

There is much to like about Manor Motel. Although the owner was sick, she tried very hard to be helpful and accommodating. Too bad she didn't have back-up for herself so she could rest. The location is quiet but close enough to walk downtown. Our room, the original living room, had a beautiful plaster ceiling, comfortable furnishings and a well-equipped... More

Our favorite accommodation in NZ. Not fancy, but nice and tidy, spacious and well located. Friendly hostess who looked after us well too, including some chocolate cake to welcome us. Great park across the road that the kids loved.

Revisiting Dunedin again in 2015 it was a stick on that I would book in at the Manor Motel. I am delighted to report that it's as good as it ever was, if not better. The owner Mrs Sandi Kennedy greeted me at the door and showed me to room four, as requested. On every previous stay it was the... More

Two beds in the hallway, the other two in the living room, only one 'actual' bedroom. Oven and cook top are not working, bathroom shower space is quite small. We didn't get WiFi password until the morning we are leaving. Lights in the living room only two of five works, kind of dark in the room.
