Only criticism is lack of expel air above oven, set smoke alarm off while cooking steak which saw me standing in the passage telling everyone it was just the steak and...

Small rooms but quite clean. Shower was spacious and worked well enough. Bathroom was also clean and quite new. The kitchenette was really small but you could make a breakfast in it, if you don't do enything special. All n all the place was good place to rest and not too expensive.

The facilities have been upgraded since my last stay in 2011 to a GREAT value for money, facility with free internet and covered parking. With me arriving late in the evening, the y made sure a carpark was reserved for me at no additional cost, as the operators are very willing to go that extra mile for their customers.

Great hotel. I needed somewhere to rest and relax during my stay in Dunedin and motel on Carrol fitted the bill. Rooms are clean and tidy as I stayed in three different rooms over 3 different weeks. Looking forward to staying again next time I'm in Dunedin.
