“Too close to the Casino!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2012

Staff were friendly and made us feel very welcome. The rooms were clean and comfortable, in fact the whole premises were almost brand new, spick and span.
More than adequate kitchen and eating facilities.
As it was an overnight stay the lack of storage space was not a huge issue.
Ideally situated close to the city centre and only a 2 minute walk to the casino, where we did our best to help the local economy.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this motel and will definitely stay here if we return to Dunedin.

Room Tip: "Large" corner spa too small for two Australians!

This Motel has excellent quality accommodation, much closer to hotel than motel. It is located within a short walk from the very center of town.
Liz and Malcolm, the managers, gave us the warmest welcome and made us feel at home instantly. They were most helpful with information and their attention to detail was impressive and most welcome.
This, coupled with the charm of Dunedin, made our stay a most memorable one.
Warmly recommended!

Stayed here for a one night stop over and I must say, I would definitely come back again!! This place was very clean and had everything we needed. Great spa bath to relax and unwind from our long drive. The hotel also provided us with several restaurant ideas and take-away food options. The microwave came in handy and also the brochures for tourist activity ideas.

Enjoy your stay!

Exellent location to walking to movies, out for dinnner or seeing the town. Rooms are fresh, modern and warm (no need for flanette P.J's and socks!! Good water pressure and with double glazing you hear very little traffic noise, beds are comfy. Hosts are warm, welcoming and will help you find or locate sights or eating establishments. We enjoy our stay at the Palms that we have booked two years in a row and will stay again this year!

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome by the owners, really friendly and helpful. Two of us were sharing a two bedroom unit and it was perect - clean, modern, very comfortable and a fab big walk in shower. The location was perfect for us, fairly central and suprisingly quiet; easy to get back to the main roads for heading off on our travels. would definitely stay here again.

We just stayed one night but it was probably the nicest room - spacious and airy - of all the hotels we've stayed in the last 5 weeks in NZ. Stylish, modern, comfy bed, lovely bathroom and good facilities.

Room Tip: We had room 206, by the road, but not noisy because of the double-glazing. Lots of window.
