We stayed here for 1 night. Room was good and clean. The only problem is the distance from town centre is 1.5 miles which takes half an hour, contrary to what the motel claims. Driving to town is not advisable as there are very limited parking facilities not to mention expensive too. We were lucky to get a room away from the traffic noise. Hosts were knowledgeable and helpful.

Our second night after arriving in New Zealand we stayed at this cute cluster of hotel town houses known simply as 858 George St. The service is fantastic, very helpful and friendly. The accommodation is spacious (two storey), clean and comfortable. Very central being on one of the main streets in town. Highly recommended!

Great hosts, very helpful and friendly. Excellent accommodation with everything we needed, clean, modern and a great base for our Dunedin stay. Short walk to town. Had off street parking. We were in the two bedroom two storey. Would recommend highly.

The location is in the heart of town. After a long day of traveling, I walked into my room to find a spa tub! It was such a treat to soak my weary bones. The host of the motel (Sally) was so eager to help us that we didn't know where to begin our exploration of the town. Its was wonderful treat!

These apartments are very nice but make sure you are not on the roadside. We stayed with friends in the very front unit which was great. We stayed the night of a Super 15 rugby match and got to bed after midnight. We never slept at all the cars and idiots walking past kept us awake all night. It was a real shame. Get a unit away from the road.

Room Tip: At the rear.

I stayed here one night while on business in Dunedin and would definitely stay again. My room was spacious, clean and had it's own little balcony, which I would have sat on had I arrived earlier. The bathroom was very, very spacious and the spa bath was amazing. The staff were friendly and very helpful.

Room Tip: Back your car into a parking space as not much room for turning.

While on business, five of my staff stayed for two nights across 3 different units. We were thrilled with the warm, modern, clean and comfortable units. The units are new but all have been designed with a character feel. The owners were responsive and helpful. It was perfectly located and we will certainly be back. Thank you.
