The rest of the place may be nice but rooms 25 and 26 offer a ground level view of tarmac and delivery vehicles in front, trash out the back, and a retro grotty interior. Door opens directly to the driveway. Furnishings are minimal and dingy. Even the duct tape is old. This was our first (and last) visit to Dunedin....

We have always liked staying here over the years, but even more so now. Under new ownership the Motel has had a huge refurbishment, new beds, furniture, double glazed windows in the bedrooms. Great free wifi, and the complimentary mini continental breakfast with eggs, cereals, toast, is really thoughtful and useful, saves time and money going to a cafe. Much...

Wifi painful. Rooms dated, but comfortable enough. Breakfast provided which is a nice touch. Enough space for a family. Probably would look elsewhere to stay next time, but as I said comfortable. The person at reception was just lovely and I loved that he was all casual, jandals and all. Very relaxed, just dated.

We enjoyed being in this motel. It is very central and the rooms are modern with good quality beds. The manager was very helpful and that made for a great Dunedin stay. If I can give one remark for improvement: they should double-glaze the North facing windows. It decreases road noise and would give better insulation for cold days.

My family (3 adults and a child) stayed for a night in this delicate and tidy room. The room provides a queen and two single beds which suit perfectly for a family. Everyone had a good night. Great hosting services as well. A+++

I stayed here with my parents on a road trip. The apartment was recently renovated, spotless and had everything we could possibly need. The fridge was stocked with cereal, milk, eggs and yogurt which fed us all in the morning. It was extremely handy to restaurants and shopping and the beds were comfortable after a long day of being out...

Overall one of the best motel stays I've had in NZ. There is, for the price, nothing to fault about this motel. Warm, comfortable, well-equipped and given its location on a busy street, surprisingly quiet even on Guy Fawkes Night. We've paid a lot more for a lot less elsewhere so strongly recommended. The location is convenient - just a...
