“Fantastic find!”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

We stayed in a one bedroom unit for two nights in early December 2013. It was one of the nicest places we stayed in New Zealand. The internal photos of the accommodation on the website don’t do the units justice.

The bathroom was immaculate and a really good size. The bed was comfortable and the bedroom was a good size too. The lounge area and kitchenette was spacious and the whole unit was clean, bright and modern.

Dunedin Palms is in a great location and we enjoyed a meal at the local Speights Brewery which is in easy walking distance.

Parking was all on site and easy and checking in and out was fast and efficient. Free wi-fi, lovely toiletries and attention to detail in the unit all added to the experience.

We would definitely recommend the Dunedin Palms Motel.

We stayed three days at the Palms Motel. The hosts were both friendly and helpful and the rooms are very modern and clean. The Palms are within walking distance to town, the Speights Brewery and the Cadbury chocolate factory and lots of restaurants. Highly recommended.

We had a 2 bedroom room. The rooms were very modern, clean and warm. The hosts were very friendly and knowledgeable about dunedin. Great location and very quiet. You can't hear the traffic even though it is on a busy street. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

We had a really nice welcome from our hosts who could not have been more friendly or helpful.

We were given lots of advice on what was available to do and see in and around Dunedin. And we were given access codes for the wifi which was excellent. Although charges for wifi are mentioned online, they are only applied for excessive use (film downloads etc).

The room was immaculately appointed and spotlessly clean. The bed too was very comfortable and a nice big en suite with plenty of hot water.

The 'wardrobe' was a bit weird - several hangers on a hook - but it worked and made better use of space.

The only slight downside was nowhere really to sit out but we were out and about anyway.

The motel is well positioned and a definite 'recommend'.

This is a surely a good choice in Dunedin. This Motel is brand new, our room had lot of space, all was tiny and clean. Very quite area not far from city center. People running this hotel are very kind and ready to help on anything. They gave us lots of advice on where to eat and where to see the penguins.

Although hilly, it's really close to the city centre near the brewery.
Taken by manager to nice well appointed room with all facilities including WiFi. We used the laundry which was fine.
As a motel you can get around Dunedin & the coast/peninsula easily.
A good choice with no issues,

We stayed at the Dunedin Palms Motel for 2 nights in January and absolutely loved it. The apartment was clean, spacious, modern and very well-equipped. It was also very close to the city centre which was ideal.
The owners were lovely and happy to help with any recommendations (restaurants, activities, directions...).
We would definitely recommend it to anyone.
