Wonderful motel and owners. Great set up in unit, quiet and comfortable. Loved it. Easy walk to restaurants and we walked to the Octagon and supermarket for a few things, about a 15 min walk. Parking was easy with a turnaround area at the end of the units.

From the moment we arrived and were given a friendly warm welcome from Donna & Barry, we knew we had chosen the right motel. The rooms were lovely - modern, quiet, warm. It felt like whatever we could think of that we would like in a home away from home, this motel had it - even down to umbrellas on loan for the changeable weather. Really convenient location with the shopping area just down the road. Plenty of food options within easy walking distance too. Very happy to recommend this motel and we hope to return again in the not too distant future.

I have stayed at this motel before, which I have found perfect in every way. I cannot rate this motel highly enough and I have re- booked for my next visit to Dunedin. Facilities, location, cleanliness, privacy are the best. Excellent communication when my booking was made.

This has to be one of the friendliest motels i have stayed in, the hosts are friendly and polite with lots of local knowledge. they clearly love their jobs which makes for an exceptional host. the rooms were well presented with nice amenities, tea and coffee and biscuits which is always well received after a long journey. we had a spa bath and a room that looked like it had recently been refurnished, the unit was upstairs and was spacious, clean and the heating had been put on prior to our arrival. we loved Dunedin and will def be back again in the summer and would noit hesitate to book this motel again.

I had not been to Dunedin for over 46 years so wanted a base to see Dunedin in a short break with my wife who had never been to Dunedin. When we arrived we found the Motel easily and was greeted by a very cheerful Donna who gave us all we needed to know about our accommodation and asked if we wanted the local paper. After telling her bout the reason for our visit Donna came up with many suggestions which was very helpful including local dining - she was infectious. Our paper arrived daily and there was the option to have our room serviced which we decided against but the option was good. When we left we had a long chat with Barry who also was very informative when Donna appeared again very cheerful with the energy of a duracell bunny!. We loved the service and high standard of cleanliness. Overall we would not hesitate to stay again and recommend to friends.
