Although building a little tired. From check in to departure felt very welcome. Motel was clean, comfortable, slept well but would recommend ear plugs , just incase as you are in student ville. Motel well situated to University. Great eating places in close proximity.

Our unit was very very clean. The decor is tired but that doesnt matter at all as the tariff was very reasonable, cleanliness is important and we had everything we needed. Management friendly, helpful. and flexible when we had an unexpected extra guest to stay.Nice and close to town. We would not hesitate to stay again.

The motel supplied 1 small cake of soap & a sachet of shampoo & conditioner & 1/2 a roll of toilet paper for our 4 night booking. The daily service consisted of... More

The room was dirty and the facilities really old. Badly in need of an update. Carpet stained, furniture felt sticky and curtains needed replacing. Bathmat and hand towels taken after the first night and not replaced. A very disappointing motel. Would not stay here again.

Not a lot of thought or fuss has gone into this tired place. If a room is booked for 5 you would hope that all 5 could sit around the table for breakfast at the same time. Fairly basic bathroom facilities and beds that have seen better days, as has the carpet. When I return to Dunedin (as I will)... More
