Very comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. Service from reception was amazing and nothing was too much trouble. Park and shops nearby was a bonus. We took the Tairei Train trip one day and the Cadbury tour another and both were well were doing.

Great central location to University and North Dunedin. Property was very clean and well presented. Front unit a little noisy with traffic through the night but nothing unusual for a motel on a main road. Would definitely recommend it and will stay again.. easy access into the city via the one way and very helpful staff.

We are from Durban, South Africa and travelled to Dunedin at the end of our NZ trip to see the Durban Sharks playing the Highlanders in Dunedin. Although we had a map, we found it very difficult to find the motel and drove around for quite some time. The receptionist said that many people phone them to say that they... More

It has been a long time since I have been able to find a place as good as this. From the initial welcome from the friendly staff to the highest quality of the housekeeping they got every thing right. From here on this will be my personal choice when I return.

Stayed in Dunedin for one night in April 2016. Hotel was very easy to find and parking is good. Decent wi fi is provided, and the hotel has laundry facilities (which you are 'kindly asked' not to use after 8pm at night). The rooms are satisfactory, large kitchen and a TV in the living area and another in the bedroom.... More

Dunedin proved to be an easy and pleasant city to enter. Our home for one night, the Cable Court Motel was simple to find because it was right on this road entering the town. As soon as we checked in, I told the front desk staff that the the van from Elm Wildlife tours would be picking us up about... More

The Cable Court was a very comfortable and nice place to stay for our short time in Dunedin. The room was clean, nicely maintained and comfortable. The staff at the hotel were incredibly friendly and helpful and made our stay really nice. The only issue was a bit of noise caused by nearby student housing. I don't think this is... More

We were happy with our stay. The person we met at reception was helpful, friendly and efficient. We only needed a studio room, and it was fine for our purposes. Our room was clean, comfortable and provided what we needed. The location is good for people taking part in sports activities at Logan Park and the Caledonian Ground if you... More

Friendly and helpful staff on reception. The room on the 1st floor (2nd, if from U.S.) was large and well appointed. Large, comfortable bed. Kitchen facilities perfectly adequate for cooking meals. We stayed 2 nights and were very satisfied.
