“More like a hotel than a motel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013

We enjoyed staying here very much. The motel felt like it was brand new - shiney clean and kitchnette, bathroom and dining room areas had everything you needed and felt like home. I needed to plug my motorised wheelchair in at night to re-charge and the motel owners and staff were very helpful and let me do this in the garage. Great location - so flat and close to university, shops and the city. We recommend it wholeheartedly and hope to stay there again.

My husband and I spent two nights here in a one bed unit, it was light, clean and spacious and well equipped. The furnishings and fittings were of good quality and in good repair, although somewhat dated. The laundry facilities are modern and readily available.

It is conveniently situated for the university, which is a five minute walk away, and the town centre, 10-15mns walk. There is no attractive garden outlook. Our room looked out over the car park of the local estate agents, but this was clean and open and the room well insulated, so it posed no problem

We fully agree with all comments regarding the owners. They are exceedingly friendly and helpful and always willing to help out in any way, including with information and advice. They are a mine of very interesting information about Dunedin, a city of which they are clearly proud residents.

We would happily recommend.

The staff could not do enough for us - in fact, it was hard to get them to stop talking sometimes!
We were booked in to this motel by my husbands work, he was there for work, so the 7 month old and I joined him.
Our room was spacious and clean, the kitchenette was fantastic. The loan of the high chair and baby bath were wonderful. We were offered to stay in the room up to 2 hours after usual checkout, after also being able to check in early. The free wifi was efficient and quick.
The ONLY complaint we have? That we had to go through the bedroom to get between the bathroom and the living area - past the baby we were trying to keep asleep. But in the big scheme of things, thats seriously trivial.
Would definitely stay again

This motel was first class for a recent business trip to Dunedin. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable and provided all that I needed during my stay. It is located on George Street so is convenient to town and especially some excellent restaurants and cafes. It is also very close to the University of Otago and all that it has to offer. Good off road parking.

We had a warm welcome at this well equipped motel with lots of advice for local attractions and restaurants. They also loaned us a DVD of the area in order that we could see what was on offer. This motel was only 20 minutes walk from the centre of town, many restaurants and the famous railway station.
The continental breakfast was served the night before and was fine except for the fruit which was tinned.
Because of its location the outlook was poor and it also lost a mark because of a poor shower and spa bath that could not be operated between the hours of 11:00pm to 7:30am.

No problem at rearranging rooms to suit. Very clean and tidy. close to centre of town walking distance.
Nice apartments for families.

A nice place near the centre of town. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The room was neat and tidy and cleaned daily. We had a rental car and never had a problem finding parking onsite. Bed was very comfortable. I think the real bonus was the free wifi which is a bit of a rarity at Australian hotels where you can be charged $10.00 for 100mb.
