Dunedin Palms Motel
Ranked #14 of 61 Hotels in Dunedin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 26, 2013

Relatively quiet location (after the quiet Fiordlands we are in what is really a city) close to all. Nicely appointed, comfortable & clean 1 BR unit. Within minutes of checking in I had all possible advise about what to see & do while here: really welcoming. Finally a nice gesture: a parking spot in front of the unit reserved for us to help my husband who has mobility issues. Do not look further: just book your stay:-)

We booked in at the Palms Motel on short notice, the Managers Liz and Malcolm, were fantastic, the Motel is very close to all attractions, Speights Brewery, and Cadbury Factory. As we are from Brisbane, this Motel was warm and extremely comfortable. I had the best night sleep, while staying at the Palms Motel, they also were great hosts and advised us on roads to travel and places to eat, not only in Dunedin but Queenstown and Lake Tekapo. I would totally stay here again. Thank you both, for your kindness and advice.

Have just had a lovely night at this motel. On arrival the hosts were only too happy to show me to the room, very friendly and helpful including showing points of interest on the map. it was nice to be taken to the room and showed around rather than just told what direction it was in. we were made to feel very welcome. It was just what we needed to relax, having the room with private courtyard and spa - nice wee getaway before the end of year. Thank you very much for the lovely stay

Room Tip: Private spa room is absolutely work the extra money

We looked at many hotels and motels until settling on the Palms Motel.
Happy to report that we could not be happier and this is for many reasons.
Firstly the one bedroom apartment was comfortable, warm, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Location was excellent and very central. Good wifi was free and much appreciated. And most of all the manager, Malcolm, who went out of his way to help, advise and guide us.
Thank you so much!
A very strong thumbs up to this great place providing excellent value.
Look no further, you will not be disappointed

Highly recommend. Very friendly hosts thank you for helping toward making our first visit to Dunedin a great one. A warm and quiet motel. Close to city and the octagon. Brilliant. We hope to be back again one day. Cheers.

The five star reviews of this place are spot on. Great hosts. Nice spacious clean facilities, with nice decor. The stay here was hassle free and quiet. Plenty of parking. Close to town. Will definitely stay here again when next in town for business or fun.

After many weeks of working in a busy cafe and holiday park, it was so amazing to finally have time to relax. We were lucky enough to get the Executive Suite with the outdoor hot tub, which resulted in ultimate relaxation.We felt totally pampered the whole time and the hosts were very friendly and helpful as soon as we arrived and throughout our entire stay.

The location was great and it was only a quick 5 minute walk to the octagon and all the CBD shops and eateries.

We will definitely be staying at the Palms Motel every chance we get to regenerate and know that we will be staying in comfort and style.

Thanks again for your amazing hospitality :) We will be back.

Room Tip: The One Bedroom Suite with the Hot Tub was worth every dollar. I'm sure all of the rooms availab...
