“I loved this motel and its location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2009

As a senior solo-traveller, I found this place delightful. Next to the university, across the road from lively student housing, and a good walk from downtown's Octagon. Also close to the Otago Museum and very near the Botanical Gardens. Office staff and management helpful and accommodating; cleaning staff efficient and pleasant. I enjoyed being among students walking to class on the nearby streets; I loved it!

this was my 2nd night on a tour round NZ having left from christchurch...

this place is very american style motel, on two floors with stairs, with en-suite bathroom and some cooking facilites. Reception were pretty helpful, but they didn't have enough parking. Place is on one of the main one-way roads into Dunedin from the north, which makes it easy to find, but there is some road noise.

all in all pretty fair place to explore the area.

Had booked two nights, on check-in were told the upper level units 29,30,31 were "quieter". Parking was a problem, the designated spot for unit 29 was alongside the garbage disposal bins,Had to move several garbage bags and cuttings from shrubs to park car. Garbage removal fortunately did not damage rental car. Area was on a street of student residences, was very dirty with garbage on street. Noisy at night with much "physical student activity" evident. Outlook from this unit was a high brick wall with a student pub next door
fortunately it rained the second night resulting in much quiter
situation. Would not reccomend these units

For the same price range, this was one of the nicer places we stayed during our trip across the South Island. The room was clean, spacious, and well-maintained, and the front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. It's closer to the University and Botanical Garden and something of a hike to downtown Dunedin, but we did not mind as there are good sidewalks and it was good to get some exercise after all of the good food we were eating.

We stayed for four nights in the context of a university conference and paid NZ$156 per night. The motel is quiet and very well located for the university and the botanic gardens while the octagon area is a short bus ride away. The three person unit included a full kitchen. We were very impressed by the level of housekeeping (everything was immaculate and standards were kept high throughout our stay). The kitchen area was perfectly adequate but the bedroom was very small with very little storage space, rather scratchy synthetic sheets and a rather wobbly double bed.

  • Liked — the location, the overall tidiness
  • Disliked — the bed and the sheets

We stayed for 3 nghts in January 2007. The room was very clean. Moreover, the room came with a full kitchen, which we used for our meals. If you are driving, it is well situated near the entrance to the city. I recommend this motel.

Very nice motel. Rooms very clean, quiet and spacious. Staff are friendly and willing to help with anything. Free laundry facilities. Good location on the edge of town near the Botanic Gardens. Didn't like Dunedin much as there is a lot of rubbish in the streets from the Uni students but the Cable Court Motel was very good.
