Once again, we had another great stay at Carisbrook Motels. Lynn and Jeff are the perfect hosts. Such a great location and lovely and quiet. The room was just perfect. See you next time Lynn and Jeff ........ we will be back!!!

Booked accommodation weeks ahead by phone. We needed specific bedding configuration as we were travelling with our grand-daughter. They had one room available which suited. On checking in and paying we were given the key to find that the room we had booked had been given to someone else. There were no other suitable rooms available. I asked why we were not phoned and at least given the chance to find alternative suitable accommodation as they had my contact details. He was well aware that I was not happy and was disappointed but as we had a family function to attend had no choice but to accept a room that certainly was not ideal. As we were about to go the family function the 'wife' arrived at our room and was nothing short of rude...saying that she will give us our money back and that we can go. She came looking for an argument. We did stay, but only because time did not allow us to look for accommodation elsewhere. The room itself is dated........carpet worn through to the backing, old bedding, mould infested sealer in the shower, toiled seat was nothing short of disgusting not to mention the street noise. We will never stay here again and will tell all those who ask the same.

Room Tip: Don't stay here at all!!!

It’s great to find a Motel with plenty of room, that’s very well priced and has great hosts. I would highly recommend this motel if you are looking for somewhere to stay that is, value for money, Quiet, Roomy, Central to the CBD along with very friendly hosts.

I had the pleasure of organising the accommodation for our extended family for a wedding held at Glenfalloch in Dunedin over this past weekend. Lynn was so friendly and happy to communate thru emails for my reservation. As it was a very large group & there are always last minute changes you have to make Lynn was fantastic & put us in rooms she felt would accommodate us all. Units were spacious,clean,lovely quilts in bedrooms and everything you need for a couple of nights with shops close by. I do feel they need to change the light fittings out of date & very dull light & TV SHELF MUST GO,that is my only small complaint. We will be back hope you enjoyed your little treat in fridge Lynn& Geoff. Thank you so much, will be back for sure. RG

Our room was a bit dated, but the room was comfortable, spottlessly clean, our terrific hosts Lyn andGeoff have been at the Motel little over 5 months, and have introduced a high standard, their helpfull atitude of nothing is to much trouble, for us ,or other guests at the same time during our stay.
The bus stops outside the motel every 10 / 15 min, to the city centre of Dunedin.
We will be back again. Thank You

We have been staying here every fortnight for 1 night for the last 4 or so years ..... we have found the motel to be affordable, comfortable and convenient for our work purposes. I do have to add that in the last 6 months that Lyn and Geoff have taken over the standards have improved TREMENDOUSLY!! They are such great hosts and go out of their way to make sure everything you need is catered for. The rooms are spotlessly clean!! If you want value for money and great Dunedin hospitality, then I recommend Carisbrook Motel.

This one was a bit older, but very clean and roomy. We had a two bedroom unit, which was very comfortable and clean. My girls loved it as well. It was a drive into town, but a quick drive. We enjoyed it so much we decided to stay an extra night. All in all very good value for money, and nice, friendly hosts.
