tldr: cold, dark, damp with safety concerns. The rest: We booked Motel on Carroll's two bedroom apartment for a week in July. How to describe the stay? Well. The linen was clean, the towels were replaced daily and the bathroom had been given a good scrub. Access is good for those on wheels, although the bathroom would have been hard... More

Motel was one of the last available in the city when I booked and now I know why. It appeared clean and tidy but felt like it was a bit of a hostel environment. We had no bad experiences apart from some loud music from nearby but since I didn't know Dunedin I assumed that a central city Motel would... More

Hi, I'm sorry that you felt this way. We are only a maximum 10 minute walk to the center so I would call this central. The music you heard is from the church next door and we are assured that it always stops at 10pm. I have had many positive comments about our motel. If you prefer we can offer... More

I made this last minute booking based on a great rate and some recent good reviews. The undercover garage type parking was the first bonus. Our room had an unusual layout but was spacious and very clean with a newly decorated look about it. The bed was very comfortable (the most important thing after all) and despite being in town...

Clean and tidy room and bathroom. Walking distance to the city centre. I will stay here again. It is good value for money. There is plenty of parking off street and on the road. Free wifi. I found the staff friendly and helpful. Nothing more to say really

This place is not like the pictures. It is up a long dark rundown driveway with trashy beach like decor, don't bother parking in the "off street parking" as its a garage with only 7 car parks to 14 rooms so if you get in first you get boxed in by the other 13 odd quest. Owner/guy at the computer... More
